My hobbies range from horse-riding to traveling to new countries. Despite my passion for extra-curricula activities, I also believe in balance and have maintained a strong academic grounding.
I have always loved learning new things, which I think is reflected in the range of subjects I tutor. In university I tutored, first teaching Arabic to adults, and then tutoring first year politics students as well as students with a weak academic background. I have an ability to collate, summarize and explain information that lends itself to most subjects.

I enjoy Drama very much and have always been involved in Drama-related activities since pre-primary school. I am comfortable coaching both theory and practicals.
I have always enjoyed English and did very well in my IEB exams with a high A. I enjoyed both English Literature as well as Poetry, Grammar, and Creative Writing, and did well in all of those aspects. I also came first in my grade for English.
