It is my grasp of foreign languages that makes me an effective English teacher. For instance, learning the complex grammar of Latin and Greek gave me a thorough understanding of English grammar and the ability to relate to other people’s native languages. I have spent many hours proofreading papers for international students. They find my instruction especially informative because I not only fix mistakes but provide an explanation. When I point out the patterns of grammar, similar mistakes show up less and less, and my students feel more confident that they are writing sentences correctly.

I learned English teaching methods through my tutoring experience. Over a span of four months, I gave a Turkish visiting scholar a systematic overview of English grammar and allowed him to apply it through conversation.

I can help your child to become a stronger and more confident reader.

I believe that reading should be fun. If a child loves to read then there’s no limit to what they can learn and discover. Therefore my lessons are engaging and designed to resonate with the student.

I also believe that building confidence is a priority. I can help students improve their reading comprehension skills without overwhelming them.

I've worked with elementary school students since 2015. My style teaching style is compassionate and friendly.

I am a Christian Pastor and have over 20 years of Bible Study experience. You can expect to learn, understand and apply the things found in the Holy Bible to real-life situations. A lot of students read the Bible but have a hard time making a connection between the things that are written and how they are applied in real life. I can teach you both what those things mean and how they are used today.

"Haitham Kassem teaches like no one else. He goes in depth in to the topic and makes sure that you understand what he is teaching. He tells his students to stop him and ask if they don't understand something. He is very dynamic and engages the student. He connects each lesson to the bigger picture and leaves the student with a through and holistic understanding of the subject, which is something not every teacher cares about or is capable of giving."

"I struggled with my English core requirement as a Biology major at NYU. I needed to boost my grades for this class or it would affect my ability to get into physical therapy school. After digging on the web I found Nick who I cannot thank enough. He helped me completely turn around my essay writing skills. His help directly impacted the improvement of my English literature grade to a level where it no longer negatively impacted my overall GPA. Proud to say that I met my goal for my English grade and as a result my overall GPA. This had a direct impact on acceptance to my top choice for physical therapy grad school. I highly recommend using Nick as an English and writing tutor. If you do choose Nick ensure you come with a goal in mind as he does a really nice job of monitoring your goals and pushing you towards them."
