Nausheen Ahmed
Nausheen Ahmed

I have a Masters in Language Education from Rutgers University and have been teaching for over 20 years. My experience ranges from working with individuals and small groups of different ages and backgrounds, to teaching in the classroom both internationally and in the U.S.

Over the years I have learned no matter what the age of the student, the same skills repeatedly come up in terms of needing improvement when it comes to writing. I have used this experience to create a writing program with tried and tested lessons from my classroom that have worked with great success.

I am familiar with the standard U.S. Language Arts curriculum for K-12 schools, as well as challenges faced by non-native speakers of the English language. I have also developed the syllabus and materials for several courses of my own. In addition to writing, I have taught ESL (English as a Second Language), Reading Comprehension, Vocabulary Building, Spelling, and Grammar.

Not only do I have a passion for teaching, but I love learning as well. I myself participate in creative writing groups and events and am continuously taking courses and trying my hand at various types of writing such as playwriting, novel writing, and creative writing.

Teachers are forever learning from their students, so your feedback and suggestions are appreciatedβ€”I look forward to sharing my knowledge and passion of writing with you!


It was really fun !!! I learned a lot that can help me in my writing, such as replacing repeated words with details. (Ex: Replace "happy" with "joyous") πŸ˜„πŸ˜„πŸ˜„πŸ˜„πŸ˜„πŸ˜„πŸ˜„
