"I have always enjoyed learning and appreciated it more when my teachers showed personal interest in my academic achievements. I personally do like teaching and have enjoyed explaining concepts I learned in my classes or otherwise to other interested individuals.

As a result, I enjoyed working as a TA for Software Construction class at MIT. This class is taught to undergraduates in the Computer Science department. I conducted recitations to go over lecture material thoroughly with examples and software demos. Furthermore, I created and graded student problem sets. In mentored student groups for their two software projects required in the semester and graded them on their design, functionality, and applications of class concepts.

I did the IB program while I was in high school in the Palestinian Territories and received my diploma. My score was 43, where I scored perfect scores 7/7 on all my subjects except one (Math HL, Physics SL, Chemistry HL, Arabic A1 HL, Economics SL), received 5/7 in English A2 HL and got +3 points on the Extended Essay (in Economics ) and TOK paper.

I would be able to dedicate 2-5 hours per week for tutoring on average. For now, I would like to start with about 6 months of the year for tutoring most likely starting in October this year 2016. The evening hours work best for me on weekdays. On weekends, late afternoons and early evenings work as well with more flexibility and possibility of tutoring during the day." less...
