I have 10 years of experience tutoring english and math for standardized exams (SAT/ACT/GRE) test preparation, as well as helping new English speakers improve their vocabulary and conversational/writing skills.

About Bill

I have always been a self-studier my entire life. Being able to learn with just books and your brain is a crucial skill to have. However, I know not everyone (and sometimes even myself) have the discipline and motivation to keep going during hard times. Or maybe the teacher/professor is not the best

"Mrs. Ghada E. is a well oriented and enthusiastic teacher. She gives clear verbal and written instructions to her students during class. Mrs. Ghada is very organized and knowledgeable in her subject area. She is an enthusiastic, very patient and humorous sometimes. Mrs. Ghada is a self motivated and a fast learner when it comes to learning new teaching strategies. She encourages me to go the extra step in learning by sending me her written feed back notes on my submitted assignments. I liked that she always response quickly to my email questions. Mrs. Elfarra can adjusts her teaching techniques to help students with different learning styles succeed in her class by varying her assignments and assessment methods like short written or spelling quiz...etc.. She is kind and understanding teacher and capable of handling difficult situations. Mrs. Ghada is a very helpful and kind teacher, I am very please to take her class."
