My main goal is to ensure that the student is able to comfortably grasp the concepts and theories required in their learning. It is the requirement of the teacher to establish a positive rapport with the student in order to successfully achieve the goals set out by the student. I constantly look for new methods and various teaching strategies tailored to the individual.
I have an extensive educational background spanning over 25 years as a student. I have a Bachelors of Arts and a Master of Arts in Political Science from Concordia University and Simon Fraser University, respectively. I am in the process of completing my second bachelors degree in Software Engineering from Concordia University.
I have over 2 years of teaching experience at the University level at Simon Fraser University. I started as a teaching assistant and was quickly promoted to a lecturer. I was responsible for large groups of students ranging from 15 to 50 students. My primary duties included organizing a semester long syllabus, reading and homework assignments, class discussions as well as grading of assignments, exams and term papers.
I currently volunteer for the EcoMENA research institute in Doha, Qatar. Working from home in Montreal, Quebec, I constantly look to improve my research and writing methods by contributing to the environmental awareness writing and discourse in the Middle East and North Africa. I am an avid fitness fanatic, exercising anywhere between 5-6 days a week at the gym. Finally, I enjoy reading nonfiction, such as biographies, political and historical books.
