The skill of teaching is a quality which I hold in high esteem. It is an activity which I have always regarded as noble, fascinating, and fulfilling.
Currently, I am pursuing a PhD in chemical engineering at Imperial College. Throughout my education, I have continuously been ranked among the best students. I was ranked 3rd of my class in my A-level examinations as well as among the top 9% of my master’s degree programme. I passed both degrees with distinction.
Throughout the years I have developed essential skills in teaching difficult principles and subjects to a variety of students. What is equally important is motivating students and strengthening their confidence, which I also try to focus on. Quite often, intelligent students struggle due to a lack of motivation or confidence.
My specialist subjects are mathematics and physics. I also teach German, Arabic and undergraduate level fluid mechanics and thermodynamics.
Currently – PhD student in Chemical Engineering, Imperial College London, Topic: Clean Energy Technologies, Waste Heat Recovery
June 2011 – Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering, Technical University Munich, Germany.
Emphasis: Sustainable Energy Systems, Flight Propulsion and Turbo
Machinery, Grade 1.5 (Top 9% of class)
2001 – 2005 “Abitur” (German equivalent to A-levels) Gymnasium München/Moosach, Munich, Germany.
Grade 1.4 (Ranked 3rd of Class)
I have been active as a tutor since 2004, when I began giving lessons to pupils having difficulties in mathematics and physics. In 2007, I co-founded a registered non-profit organization in Munich,Germany where highly-qualified tutors and I gave lessons to pupils in a variety of subjects. The goal of our organization was (and still is) to provide excellent tutoring to adolescents from difficult backgrounds whose parents cannot afford cutting-edge tuition. All tutors, including myself, were volunteers working for free.
I like to continually work on my knowledge of French, a language which I truly enjoy. I am still dreaming of spending some years in a French speaking country. Additionally, I enjoy mechanical design and am currently working on a designing and building a simple device.
Jogging, cycling and basketball balance out my intellectual activities.
