Selma recently graduated from McGill University’s Bachelor of Education program where she specialized in high school English Language Arts and History. During her time living in Quebec, she taught and tutored in both English and French. She also made it onto the Dean’s List and earned several scholarships throughout her university years for maintaining a high cumulative GPA.
Growing up with an Egyptian father and a German mother, she developed a passion for languages and learned to speak English, French, German, Arabic, and Spanish. Her interest in Spanish led her to teaching English as a Second language in Spain. Later, she traveled to Costa Rica as a Program Leader for groups of American teenagers on community service trips. These international experiences fuelled her interest in working with youth.
Teaching has been a lifelong dream for Selma, and she believes that there is nothing more rewarding than being able to help a student gain confidence or understand a concept. For her, tutoring is all about listening and responding to her students’ unique needs. Selma recently moved to Ontario, and she is looking forward to her next adventure in a new province! You’ll often catch her planning her next hiking trip, dancing, singing, or going on long runs.
