Ziad made academics in high school enjoyable, to me as he was able to show me different ways to approach problems in Mathematics and Economics. He was available whenever I needed him and he really cared about my performance. With his expertise, my grades significantly improved and I felt prepared to take on university subjects.
I took lessons with Ziad during my last two years of high school because I needed help for the IB and especially Mathematics and Economics. I would highly recommend Ziad because he manages to clearly explain in a simple way, things that my teachers at school would over-complicate and therefore confuse me. Additionally, he was always calm and available when I needed last minute help for revision and this helped me achieve final grades that I didn't think I could have without his help
Ziad tutored both my children for a number of years in both Maths and Economics. They recently successfully passed their AP and IB exams and I must honestly say that their high scores were thanks to Ziad. He followed them through their learning, understanding their needs, strengths and weaknesses and took genuine interest in their progress. His experience is impressive and he understands the rigours and demands of both the IB and the AP exams. He is a warm, welcoming teacher and my children always enjoyed his tutoring.
