"There are no elevators to success, you have to take the stairs." -By the ✨Internet✨

Hey there!

My name is Liya and I'm a middle school student from Maryland who likes to paint, write (Working on a novel!!), read (Currently reading Show Me A Sign), and bake (I need more tips on how to make pastry cream, last time . . . it was a mess) in my free time. I'm a member of the Schoolhouse Scholars Guild and the Welcoming Team. I am a student leader at my school district (Working with SMOB) and a major Potterhead ⚡

Super excited to be a part of Schoolhouse!

Upcoming Sessions

Basic Arabic for beginners!!

    2nd session

I plan to cover the ABCs and the numbers of this Beautiful language and by the end of the series you hopefully can greet others, introduce yourself, tell the time, ask for directions... etc Each week we will cover 4 letters and focus on one of the four communicative skills(reading, writing, listening, and speaking). I plan for this to be an interactive and discussion-based series (how else would you learn??!!) we will utilize Kahoot and Blooket, so expect a lot of fun (and a little bit of competition!)

✍ SHW Short Story Writing Competition ✍

    2nd session

Welcome to the SHW Writing Competition. Me and a few other tutors hosted a similar series last summer, and after seeing how much fun that was, I’ve decided to keep it going! So, this summer, we’re back with another Writing Competition, with a few tweaks and changes. If you were a part of the competition last year, welcome back! I’m excited to see the stories you all come up with! This series is pretty self-explanatory, but basically, in this competition, all participants will write a short story regarding any topic and submit it using a Google Form. Yep, that's simple. There are, however, some rules to help keep things in check which we'll discuss in the orientation session. *Thank you so much for all the judge applications! We now have enough for this series!*

💪Intense Study Group🧾

    9th session

Welcome! Are you a person looking to improve your study habits? Are you trying to improve your grades? If so, then this series might just be for you! In this mini-study group, we'll meet once a week and work on getting our assignments done, studying, or getting help from others. It is very intense, as we'll be working for long hours, but we'll take frequent breaks, and take it slow. During each meeting, we'll start out by sharing our goals to achieve by the end of the session, take a few minutes to get ourselves situated, and begin working, with 30-minute work, and 5-minute breaks. During the 30 minutes, feel free to ask any questions related to what you're working on. During those 5-minute breaks, we can share our progress, ask any questions, or get up, walk around, get a drink, etc. At the end of each session, we'll share whether if we accomplished the goals we set for ourselves, and find things we can improve on next time. We'll end the session with a study tip that we can incorporate next time. *Currently paused for the summer*

Thank you, Liya! This competition was very fun, and I'm so happy to say that I've participated as a judge! It was great to see the winners, and I would absolutely volunteer again next year!

Thank you so much for hosting it! I loved competing, and I was so excited to see the results. I wasn't disappointed! I appreciate you making this competition, and I'll keep my eyes peeled for any new series you'll make.
