The daily chronicle of my family as we embark on our quest to relocate from New York to Cairo... the impending journey to get there and the daily lives of myself, my husband and our four children... and other random thoughts while living in Cairo!

Looking to make contact with other Muslimahs who are like myself with small children living or will be living in a foreign country.

I invite you to share the experience with us as we try to make this happen!

In need of an English and Math tutor.....

Assalaam 'Alaikum sisters!

Quick post... do any of you sisters here in Cairo have a GREAT, reliable English/Math tutor? I would like to hire one ASAP for my kids who will be 3 and 5. I believe in being proactive and I'm not in the place to devote much time to them right now (meaning being totally consistant with everything) with all I have going on in this house! They'll both start school in the fall and I like to be ahead of the game.... especially since the educational system here in this country is lacking greatly. I've heard many, many wonderful things about the school they'll attend but I need to know they'll at least to "up to snuff" with their classmates. I brought alot of workbooks with me from New York but I don't want to start to stop... because of stuff coming up and the likes, ya know what I mean? And with my Little Papi who requires a great deal of time, I know a tutor would do them better justice than me at this point! And I feel with someone else in the house, they'll pay closer attention than with me.

I'm looking for someone as soon as 2 weeks to start- I'm finishing up my house and I need to go away for a breather before the hubby arrives... so we're looking for someone twice to three times a week indefinitely... I will ask some of the many sisters here but I wanted to get the word out there.... let me know!

Wa alaikum assalaam... yeah, I know I've been crazy busy since arrival but Alhumdulillah, everything is JUST about finished and I can relax before the "big event".

Haven't had the chance to read ur blog as of late, sorry for the neglect but when I'm done it'll be business as usual.... hope you and your family are doing well.

Actually, I found one! I called one of the sisters and she informed me that the school I initially saw 2 years ago to enroll my daughter in, the owner as a program which she has loads of tutors, MashaAllah... we spoke and I told my needs and she's going to devise a schedule for them both and get back to me so they'll be ready for school, InshaAllah.

Love ya!!!

So did you find a tutor yet?

I hope you find a native English Speaker for the English part! I got this tutor once for my kids who was supposedly a teacher but his spelling was terrible - my older son kept having to tell him what the right spelling was.

Empress Anisa said...

Umm Imran- Well, one hasn't started yet- she is supposed to come by on Sunday so we'll see. She is going to use phonics (jolly phonics) to get her going....
We can STILL talk about it- send me your mobile and I'll call you!
