Hobbies & Interests


I am involved in a local charity where I volunteer as a tutor and student helper. I have been involved with this society for three years and very much enjoy being part of the team. I enjoy supporting young pupils in achieving and reaching their full potential. I also enjoy transferring my skills of being a multilingual learner. Most recently, I assumed a role of teaching English as a second language to my local community to help mothers and unemployed women looking to find a job but have language as a barrier.

I was tutored by Ahlam a year ago.

She is an exceptional teacher in every aspect that I could think off.Her knowledge about the subject is very good and she takes pains to give her best and make sure each and every student is able to understand the concept.

Her way of taking classes was a lot different than the others as she used to relate a lot with the current examples and had a great sense of humor.This made her teaching interactive as well as useful.
