I have almost 16 years of experience and am a certified CAIE tutor. I believe in providing personalized and adaptive guidance to each student.
I use a combination of direct instruction, guided practice, and independent practice to teach new concepts and skills. I explain the concepts clearly and concisely, using examples, analogies, and visual aids. I communicate with the student in a friendly, respectful, and professional manner and use clear and simple language.
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.
Bachelor's in Religious Studies, Specialization in Abrahamic Religions
Experience: In my 27 years working, I have learned that religious education is very important for bringing people together and helping them understand each other. Studying the Abrahamic religions has been both an academic and personal experience for me. I have written articles, joined international forums to talk about getting along with different religions, and made sure to use this knowledge when I teach. I think it's important for students to not just understand the scriptures, but also to appreciate how they relate to our diverse world.
I think teaching Religious Studies is more than just sharing information. It's about helping students understand and find harmony. I use a well-rounded approach that includes storytelling, interesting discussions, and visits to places of worship. I want to promote mutual respect in my classroom by discussing the similarities and differences of different religions. I want my students to learn about these differences so they can do well in a diverse environment.
Mr. Al-Darwish has been an inspiration. His lessons go beyond the textbook, teaching us the true essence of religious harmony.
Zayed possesses genuine qualities and merits. I have made persistent efforts to acquire knowledge over an extended period of time, yet my progress has been limited. Zayed effectively accommodated my preferred learning approach, consistently motivates me in a positive manner, and consistently demonstrates patience. I have reached a point where I perceive a sense of coherence and understanding.
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.
M.A. in Comparative Religion
I have been teaching religion with students from different backgrounds for more than 20 years. I started teaching in a small town school and then moved on to bigger schools in cities, which gave me a lot of different experiences. I have noticed that religious beliefs affect how people see themselves and what they value in society. I really enjoyed taking my students on field trips to different places of worship. It has been a great teaching experience so far. These trips are designed to help students learn about rituals and practices. Also, I have often been asked to speak at different seminars about why religious education is important in today's world.
To understand religion, it is important to have an open mind and avoid being judgmental. I like to share facts and have conversations. I think students should learn about different religions and understand the values and morals they teach. I want to make religious studies interesting and easy to understand for every student by using stories, group projects, and field visits.
Amazing, friendly, and gentle teacher who knows a lot about the Religious Studies and languages, culture, and history. He will give you the tools you need to learn and practice well, and he will also adjust to your level very well. We strongly suggest!
I appreciate his balanced viewpoint on sensitive topics. It's easy to see his dedication to the subject.
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 Comparative Religion
I have spent twenty years studying religion, and during that time, I have seen how knowledge can have a powerful impact on people's lives. I have worked in different places, like small villages where I learned about the local religious practices, and also in university departments where we discussed worldwide religious events. I have learned a lot about different religions, their practices, beliefs, and how they affect communities through my research projects. I have taken breaks from my regular life to live in religious communities. I did this to learn about their daily practices and beliefs. I share real-life experiences with my students to give them practical knowledge along with theoretical concepts.
Teaching religious studies is not just about religious texts and rituals. It is about understanding what it means to be human. I focus on making a safe place for students to discuss and question religious beliefs. I use videos and multimedia presentations to help students understand what they are learning. I want to teach them to understand and value the different religious beliefs in the world.
Mr. Youssef has this way of making religious studies interesting. I never knew there were so many connections between different religions. He uses maps and pictures, and sometimes even different books to help us understand. What stands out the most is his patience. Even if someone asks a question that might seem simple, he takes the time to answer it thoroughly. He also brings in stories from his own experiences, which helps us see the real-world application of what we're learning.
Since my son started attending Mr. Youssef's class, our dinner conversations have changed. He's always sharing a new fact or story.
Master's in Theology and Religious Studies
My teaching career has lasted for 18 years. I have been lucky to work with many different students, each with their own perspectives. I have taught in cities and countryside, and learned about how different communities view religion. I have not only worked in classrooms, but I have also led workshops in community centers. These workshops focus on how religious beliefs influence the norms in society. I have been involved in discussions between different religious groups to help them understand each other better. I have a lot of different experiences that I bring to the classroom. I want to give students a complete understanding of religious studies.
Religion is a personal matter, and I want to give students a fair and respectful understanding of different beliefs. I use lectures, discussions, and multimedia to make the subject easy to understand and connect to their daily lives. I encourage students to ask questions, discuss ideas, and develop a better understanding of religious studies.
He is a great teacher who quickly figures out how you learn and adapts to that. He is very nice, and I feel like I have mproved quickly. Lessons are fun and interesting, and I would recommend him to anyone.
The way he incorporates current events into his teachings makes the subject matter relevant to today's world.
Dept of Religious Studies
I've spent close to two decades understanding the teachings, histories, and interconnections of the world's major religions. My foundation in Islamic studies was strengthened by my research into its diverse interpretations and sects. Over time, I expanded my knowledge base, exploring Christianity, Buddhism, and other global faiths. I've facilitated interfaith workshops and dialogue sessions, promoting mutual respect and understanding among diverse communities. My varied exposure, from academic seminars to grassroots initiatives, has broadened the scope of my teaching, enriching my lessons with varied perspectives and experiences. Students have often remarked on the practical insights and real-world context I introduce, helping them relate to and deeply understand the teachings.
Religions offer insights into cultures, societies, and histories. I aim to present these insights in a manner that's engaging and relatable. My sessions are more than just lectures; they're platforms for students to question, challenge, and explore. I use multimedia presentations, debates, and collaborative projects to ensure an interactive learning environment. I also emphasize the shared values across religions, creating a spirit of unity and understanding.
Mr. Rashid's class is always something I look forward to. We talk about beliefs from all around the world. Sometimes, he shows us slides with photos of places and people. It helps me picture everything. Even though it's A-level, he explains things so everyone can get it.
My daughter is in Mr. Rashid's A-level class. She often shares with me what she learns. She sounds so interested! I'm happy about that. Though I think some homework to practice would be good.
Master's in Theology and Religious Studies
In the last 14 years, I have studied different religions in various places around the world. I have talked to religious leaders, looked at old records, and organized events where people from different religions come together to learn. I have learned a lot about different religions, which has given me a well-rounded understanding. Attending international conferences has helped me understand the importance and details of religious practices worldwide. I use my knowledge to help students understand how different religions are connected.
In a world where different religions often come together, it's important to approach the study of religion with an open and accepting attitude. I want to make sure that all students in my classroom feel comfortable and confident to express their thoughts and ask questions. My lessons are made to be engaging, combining old texts with modern explanations. I use examples from real life, have discussions, and debates to make learning interesting and meaningful. I want to help students become global citizens and appreciate the beauty in all belief systems.
Mr. Saeed really knows his stuff. I used to find religious studies a bit confusing, but he breaks everything down so it's easier to grasp. I especially like the stories he shares from different faiths; they're always so eye-opening.
Every evening, my daughter has something new to share from Mr. Saeed's lessons. She's becoming more aware of different religious practices and beliefs. I just hope he'd provide more handouts or summaries for her to revise.
