Doctorate in Religious Studies
In my almost 30 years of teaching, I have had a strong admiration for the Abrahamic traditions. I have devoted my life to learning and teaching about Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Over time, I have seen young people struggle with, value, and often feel a strong connection to these old teachings. I have visited Jerusalem, Rome, and Mecca, which has helped me understand them better. Now, I can share my personal experiences of these holy places with my students.
My tutoring approach is to help students understand the similarities and shared beliefs of the Abrahamic faiths. In my classes, we often have discussions, presentations, and debates where everyone participates. I use different types of media to make historical events more interesting. Sometimes, I invite people from different religions to talk about their own experiences and viewpoints. By the end of the course, I want students to understand these religions well and also to appreciate their depth, beauty, and how they are connected to each other.
Mr. Saeed's knowledge and passion for the Abrahamic religions are evident in every class. He doesn't just teach; he inspires.
You couldn't ask for a better instructor than Saeed. His pronunciation lessons are rigorous and will help you become a better English speaker. The first exam is over and he takes it very seriously and provides constructive feedback even though it was a more casual test. I look forward to continuing my training with him and hope the best for him in the future.
Master's in Religious Studies
For almost 25 years, I have been interested in learning about Eastern Religions. During this time, I have studied the teachings of Buddhism, Hinduism, Taoism, and other similar beliefs. I have been lucky to travel a lot, going to temples, monasteries, and shrines in Asia. This has helped me learn more and gather experiences to tell my students about. I have been happy to help many young people understand the complex ideas and practices of these old religions, showing them a glimpse of a world that is very different from ours.
I like to connect Eastern philosophies to our everyday lives when I teach. I compare old teachings to show how they can still be helpful in today's fast world. I believe in learning by doing, so I like to have discussions, group activities, and hands-on projects in my lessons. I use pictures, videos, and sometimes quiet thinking time to help my students truly feel and understand Eastern spirituality, instead of just memorizing information.
Besides being one of the most patient teachers I've ever had, his courses are also quite easy to learn. A few weeks ago, I struggled to read at all, but with his help, I've come a long way in that area. I highly suggest him to anyone interested in studying the religious studies.
The meditation sessions we had were a highlight. They gave us practical insight into Eastern spiritual practices.
Master's in Religious Studies with a special focus on Eastern Religions
I have been teaching students about Eastern religions for more than 20 years. I became very interested in the ideas and ways of the East, which led me to become a teacher. I have talked with scholars, monks, and people who practice different Eastern religions. This has helped me learn more and I use what I've learned in my teaching. It's nice to see students every year start to like Eastern religious ideas. Some even go on their own spiritual journeys.
I believe that to truly understand religion, it's important to learn about its practices and philosophies, not just read about it. That's why, in my classes, students participate in meditation, watch documentaries about religious rituals, and have discussions about Eastern philosophical ideas. I tell them to ask questions, disagree with ideas, and share their own beliefs, so that we can have a lively and respectful learning environment. My main goal is for students to not only gain knowledge but also feel spiritually fulfilled..
I immediately felt comfortable with Rawan as a teacher. After I told her my goals, she helped me map up a study schedule. Her kind demeanour and genuine enthusiasm for teaching will have you dreading the end of class. Whether your goal is to master Arabic, memorise the Quran, or perfect your Tajweed, she is your go-to. Every time I have a lesson with her, I feel like I make progress. Additionally, she is professional and flexible. That's why she comes so highly recommended from me.
The way she introduces us to the Eastern world's philosophies is simply mesmerizing. It's more than just a class; it's an experience.
PhD in Religious Studies
I have been teaching for over ten years and during that time, I have studied Abrahamic religions, which include Christianity, Islam, and Judaism. Over the years, I have visited important religious places and participated in meetings with other experts to learn more about them. This has helped me share not only facts but also stories and insights that make religious study interesting for my students.
My tutoring approach for religious studies is focused on understanding and connecting with the stories and values that are important to humanity. In my classes, I talk about the things that the Abrahamic religions have in common. I show how they all believe in being kind, fair, and having strong beliefs. I use real-life examples, stories, and pictures to help students understand and appreciate each religion better. The goal is not only to give information, but also to create a respectful and understanding atmosphere for different beliefs and practices.
Zahra is an excellent instructor. She is a kind, gentle, and trustworthy teacher whose classes are clear, informative, and enjoyable. I would suggest her to anyone who is serious about improving their knowledge foundation because she is constantly discovering new and exciting sources of information.
Learning about the interconnectedness of Abrahamic religions was eye-opening. Zahra's approach is both scholarly and compassionate.
