About

I am a rising senior who values education and enjoys learning and teaching!

I am Jordanian, but I attend an International School in Saudi Arabia. My favorite subject at school is biology though chemistry and math are close seconds. I had a GPA of 4.0 in my junior year including an A+ in Math, which included Algebra II and Calculus. I ranked first in my junior year (my school had about 200 junior students).

I have taken the ACT test twice and scored a 34 in the first trial and a 35 in the second. I have a super score of 36! I also self-studied AP Biology in 2022 and scored a 5 on the AP Biology test. However, when my school started a 2-year AP Biology program last year, I joined it because of my love for biology (and it was the most challenging biology course being offered at my school). In 2023, I took an AP Chemistry course offered by Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth because my school does not offer AP Chemistry. I received an A in the course and a 5 on the AP test! I have also taken an "Introduction to Epidemiology" course offered by UC San Diego in which I received an A+ and am currently working on a research project with the IRI of North Carolina. As to English proficiency, in addition to attending international schools since kindergarten, I have scored 119/120 on the TOEFL test in 2023.

I have been tutoring at Schoolhouse for over a year now and have enjoyed tutoring and learned greatly from my experience. I hope to continue sharing my knowledge and helping others during my senior year.

Upcoming Sessions

The Complete ACT Course (part III: Geometry)

    Starts
This course is designed specifically for students planning to take the ACT test and want to work on the math skills they need for it. However, students who need to revise some topics for school or are planning to take the SAT can also benefit from the course. Over the next few months, we will meet weekly to discuss all of the important math concepts and strategies you need to do well on the ACT. In every session, we will tackle a few topics. We will revise them and solve some practice questions. I will also be taking any math questions you might have throughout the session. I plan to adapt the course and the time allocated to each topic based on the needs of the students.
_____________________________________________

The course will be divided into parts; each part will be placed in its corresponding subworld:

1. Pre-Algebra

2. Algebra 1

3. Geometry

4. Statistics & Probability

5. Algebra 2

6. Pre-calculus

_____________________________________________

RESOURCES I USE:

-The Ultimate Guide to ACT Math (1 and 2)

- The Official ACT Prep Guide 2022-2023

- 500 ACT Math Questions to Know by Test Day, 3rd Edition, Geometry Common Core.

- The Official ACT Mathematics Guide

(This list is subject to change as I get to learn what the students need more of.)

FEEDBACK

Some of the feedback I got on my previous ACT Math courses:

"The practice questions were just what I needed, also the tutor was very engaging."

"Very good and thorough explanations."

"super organized and good explanations."

part of a peer review: "Excellent explanations! You went over each concept in detail and thoroughly explained how to solve the problems. You not only explained how to find the correct answer but also why a certain approach makes sense. "

_____________________________________________

Note: I already completed parts I (pre-algebra) and II (algebra I) in previous courses. I am sorry for the pause between the previous two courses and this one. I had intended to have No gaps between them, but due to school exams, college applications, and some health issues I face, I found that a small break was necessary. Hopefully, this will not happen again as I plan to start part IV as soon as we complete part III. If anybody would like me to go over some concepts from algebra I or algebra II again, let me know, and I can arrange specific sessions for that.

Comprehensive AP Biology Course

    16th session
Although AP biology gets a lot of bad press for being one of the most difficult APs or for the low percentage of students who score a 5 on it, you will see that with the right mindset and guidance, it can be pretty fun and not too challenging. Through this course, I hope to help those taking AP biology at school or self-studying it feel sure of themselves and do well on tests as well as te AP exam in May. - Overview - We will meet for an hour or 90 minutes (depending on how long it takes us to cover the material) every two weeks to thoroughly review the different AP Biology units. Each unit will be divided into two sessions. The exceptions are units 6 and 7. Because these two units are long and include a lot of material, I decided to divide each of them into 3 sessions. The sessions will start with a quick review of and/or a question about some of the topics discussed in the previous session(s) followed by a discussion of the concepts and topics in the particular part of the unit assigned for that week. Then, we will do some practice questions (MCQ and FRQ) and a Q&A (questions are also welcome anytime during the session). Advice on how to approach test questions and tips for studying for the AP biology test will be incorporated throughout our sessions. - Qualifications - I self-studied for the AP Biology exam and took it in May 2022. I got a score of 5. I took the AP biology course at my school in 2023 (the year they started offering it). I also taught this same course on Schoolhouse last year. Some of the feedback I received on my course last year: "Ragad had one of the most comprehensive PowerPoint presentations on Schoolhouse that I have ever witnessed." "Lots of good details and explanation with the summary." "Your use of practice problems was awesome." "Thank you for the amazing session! I liked how you interacted with us frequently and got us involved!! :)" - Resources - I will depend on a variety of resources, but the ones I use most heavily are: (Organized from the ones I use most to the ones I use least.) - CliffsNotes AP Biology 2021 Exam (most recent edition) - Campbell, biology in focus 3rd edition - Princeton Review AP Biology Premium Prep 2022, 2023 - 5 Steps to a 5 500 Questions to Know by Test Day Looking forward to teaching all of you!

Extra session upon request: AP Bio 7.10-7.13

I arranged this session upon the request of one of the students, but anybody else is welcome to join too. If you are a student in my AP Biology course, then don’t worry that course will not be affected by this session, and we will have a session covering the second part of unit 7 in two weeks as scheduled.
