Macaulay Honors (Queens College)
Mathematics Secondary Education Major
Heba joined Tutor Corps in the fall of 2019, and she definitely hit the ground running. As part of the Macaulay Honors program at Queens College, Heba aspires to be a high school math teacher.
One advantage of a soon-to-be teacher working with Tutor Corps? “Working with teachers side-by-side,” says Heba. “In college, we learn to teach by observing teachers and reading textbooks, but by joining Tutor Corps, I am able to work with wonderful teachers, not next to them.”
“Being part of Tutor Corps has helped me learn so much about being a professional,” she continues. “From how to write emails properly, to how to address racial issues in the workplace, the monthly professional development seminars have taught me a lot. There is a type of sensitivity in the workplace that can only be learned in a comfortable work environment, and I am grateful that Tutor Corps taught me that.”
