About Me

I am a young and energetic teacher who is academically-minded and enjoys discussing topics relating to literature, history, theology and politics. I like to keep my lessons discussion-based when grappling with ideas to ensure the students are able to think for themselves and articulate their understanding of a subject. In addition to this, I like to use writing, reading, performance and videos in my lessons to maximise the student's engagement with the topics, and keep it fun and interesting.

I have experience teaching English, IT and History at a prestigious boarding school in Lebanon, where I taught both classes of children aged 8-11 and one-on-one learning support classes for children aged 8-18. I also have experience teaching children with learning difficulties and naturally, I have received extensive Child Protection Training and DBS Certifications.

Experience / Qualifications

I have experience teaching English, IT and History at a prestigious private boarding school in Lebanon
Full DBS Certification
Child Protection trained
Depending on the level, will taper the English tuition to best suit the need of the English student. I have taught English as a foreign language in schools to ages 8-18, but I am willing to teach anyone from pre-school level to adults. I am able to focus on any particular facet of the English Language from speaking and reading to the use of vocabulary and grammar in writing.
I specialise in tutoring History to students at GCSE and A-Level. I am familiar with all major examination boards (AQA, OCR, Edexcel etc.) and I can adapt my tutoring to best serve examination practice, essay writing or general understanding of topics. I specialise particularly in Middle Eastern and Islamic History, though I have taught American History and World History in schools before.
This class aids undergraduate theology students in theory and material pertaining to their degree. I can help with the general and critical understanding of theory, as well as essay guidance and examination preparation. I received an M.A (Hons) in Theology from the University of Edinburgh and I chose to specialise particularly in Islamic Studies and politicised religion, though I am happy to assist in covering all aspects of theology.

Philosophie (niveau lycée) : préparation au baccalauréat de philosophie
La philosophie est une matière enseignée en terminale. Parfois perçue comme complexe, la matière est en réalité une magnifique opportunité de développer son esprit critique et sa réflexion personnelle. Au travers de débat, de discussion et de réflexion autour de plusieurs sujets traditionnels de la philosophie, l'amélioration de la culture philosophique de l'élève se fera de manière ludique et agréable. Nous verrons ensemble les deux grands exercices demandés au baccalauréat : l'explication de texte et la dissertation. Nous verrons également les grands thèmes philosophiques : conscient, religion, technique, devoir, justice à l'aide des auteurs mais aussi de vidéos ou de questions problématisées.

Introduction to philosophy: mind, self, and consciousness
What is the nature of consciousness? Is there a self? Is the mind identical to the brain? Can life have meaning in a physical universe? These are big questions that philosophy can help tackle. Together, we will talk about how to understand these questions more precisely, look at some answers, and learn how to approach both questions and answers using critical thinking tools. Who is this class for? Students who've never taken philosophy, adults who are interested in exploring big ideas, and scientists and entrepreneurs who'd like to learn how to think about these questions in a more rigorous way.

Orthodox Tradition and Holy Narratives: Selected Texts, Byzantine Hymns and Customs from the Orthodox Church
We study together -from the original text along with the translation- selections from Holy Texts related to Jesus Christ’s life on earth, while exploring Byzantine Hymns and customs from the Orthodox Tradition in general. We focus on the religious, theological or historical and cultural context and at the same time apropos- check on the several primary phenomena of the Greek Language. A glance on melodies of the Byzantine Hymnology is also included in this series of sessions that unfold the greatness of Christianity!

Mireya
Philosophy of Baccalaureate or for adults who want to start.
Philosophy for school age or adults. I am licensed. I love this subject and my enthusiasm is contagious. We will review the topics for which the student has exams or those that the student feels are of special interest. Textbooks sometimes make this subject more difficult and unenjoyable than it should be.

Speed-Reading, Philosophy, Literacy, Literature, Psychology
Here's what I can do for you: - Develop a reading habit (a book a week is not an unreasonable goal); - Teach you how to speed-read so you can read twice, or thrice, as fast without loss in comprehension (speed-reading is really just a fancy name for college-level reading skills, a phenomenon which can be taught and practised without recourse to magical beliefs); - Take you through a tour through the body of Western Classics that Wikipedia defines as a "body of high culture literature, music, philosophy, and works of art ... from Socrates to Wittgenstein in philosophy, and from Homer to James Joyce in literature"; - And finally, be an English conversational partner and personal tutor who does all the usual things to help you enjoy speaking and reading in English (about how English is formally taught, most "dreaded" English tests and exams are really variants of IQ tests that have little to no relations to how a language is learned and acquired).

A-level philosophy tutoring and essay help for students
Lessons involve specific discussions on topics, as well as essay writing advice and checking. We will look at approaches from within the A-level spec, as well as outside ideas to push your grades up. One-to-one tutoring will naturally give an advantage over other students, as well as content for personal statements. I am a young, passionate student of philosophy who when studying A-levels saw an opportunity to give students more accurate, better-formulated arguments to push grades up. After a few sessions, you will see an improvement in writing technique, as well as the ability to formulate original ideas.

Abolaji
A remote & onsite Arabic class where students can learn speaking, writing & reading. It's also a class of Quran and Islamic Studies.
Hello! My name is Abolaji Abdrahman, from Nigeria. I have studied Arabic language (including reading, writing, listening and speaking skills). I also studied Quran & it's sciences, Tajweed, and other Islamic studies for more than fourteen years. I have studied Arabic from the International Open University and Arabic Institute. Currently, I'm also an Undergraduate student of Islamic Studies Education in the University of Lagos, Akoka. I also study under the tutelage of Sheikh Raslān from Egypt. I am a tutor of modern standard Arabic, classical Arabic (the language of Quran and Hadith) and colloquial Arabic ('āmiyyah). I love teaching Arabic because it is a very important language of Islam. Prophet Muhammad S.A.W said we should love Arabic language because: he is an Arabic, the holy Quran is in Arabic language and the language of the paradise dwellers is Arabic. I also love teaching Arabic language because it is the fifth most spoken language in the world. With Arabic language, you'll become a polyglot and you will be able to adapt to the environments of Arab. As a Muslim, with Arabic language, you'll have thorough understanding of Quran and Sunnah. I have been tutoring Arabic and Islamic Studies since 2014 both online and offline till date. I tutor the learners between the ages of 5 - 80. The focus of my instruction is on all the important skills of the language (reading, writing, listening and speaking), grammar and vocabulary development. With these, you'll be able to intermingle with Arabic speaking people in any Arab environment you find yourself and of course, you'll have yourself prepared and fit for any formal exam. I am also certified to instruct in the memorization of Quran, the sciences of Quran like different versions of Quranic recitation (riwāyāt), the exegesis of Quran (tafsīr), e.t.c I have syllabus and materials for tutoring Arabic efficiently within a period of six to twelve months. I'm well experienced in tutoring with these books: ➡️ I love Arabic ➡️ Lessons in Arabic language ➡️ Nūrul bayān ➡️ Iqrā' qirā'tī ➡️ Qā'idāh Nūrāniyyah ➡️ Qā'idāh Makkiyyah ➡️ Qā'idāh Baghdādiyyah ➡️ Arabic in your hands ➡️ Tuhfatul Atfāl ➡️ Exegesis of Ibn Kathīr e.t.c I also have experience in teaching English language and Philosophy. Learning English language helps in developing ideas and communicating them. I would be glad to be your tutor in this journey, choose me and you will not regret it. See you in my class! I have 7 years of teaching experience. I'm a certified Arabic and English teacher. I have TESL and simplified Arabic certification. My teaching method is philosophical, experimental and persuasive. My teaching approach is simple to complex.

Let Us Take A Look Into The Variety Of Asian Religions Together!
Over the course of my college career I was devoted to learning about how religion manifests within Asia. So many things seem to be philosophies rather than religions- is there a difference? Let us learn about it together! I have taken over 10 religious studies courses of my own volition, and have tutored religious studies to several college students after gaining my degree. I can break Hinduism down- what is atman? Who are the gods? Are there several sects? Who was important to the movement of religious tolerance in India? How has this affected the development of the country? I can explain the spread of Buddhism as well as the messages behind it. I plan to explain the story of Siddhartha and how it caused a ripple effect. Taoism, Shintoism, Islam and folklore will be delved into. The growth of Christianity within Korea, and China may also be explored if the student finds interest in the topic. My main concern is to explain religions across Japan, Korea, China, and India, but that is not to say that the religions have not touched the entire world. This is through the lens of Asia, but it can be applied to understand religious growth within the U.S. as well. No question is too small, let us conquer one of the hardest concepts together!
