The Tutoring Solution's 2016 Student of the Year Scholarship Winner - Mena Mekhaeel

The Tutoring Solution’s 2016 Student of the Year Scholarship Winner – Mena Mekhaeel

We selected Mena Mekhaeel as our 2016 Student of the Year Scholarship Winner. Mena receives his tutoring in Mira Loma. He graduated from Eleanor Roosevelt High School, last school year and he is now attending Cal State Fullerton – he hopes to get a degree in Biology and become a doctor. We have been working with Mena since the beginning of 2014. For the past 2.5 years, he has been working with Laura. Laura has been helping Mena with different advanced math and science courses that Mena has taken throughout his academic life. Mena has definitely been an outstanding student to work with and it has been wonderful to see him grow throughout these past 2 years.

We began working with Mena halfway through his junior year of high school, because he needed a bit of extra support in his pre-calculus class. Based on the information his mother provided, we knew right away that Mena was a very bright and special student and that we had to find someone that would be able to challenge him intellectually. We ended up pairing him up with our tutor, Laura. Laura was the perfect fit for Mena – they hit it off right away. Right after their first session, when we spoke with Laura, she said she was so impressed by Mena’s high level of intelligence and for the deep questions he posed. They seemed like a perfect match because of their love of learning math and science.

Mena is one of those exceptional students that likes to be challenged academically. He has continually taken some of the hardest courses offered at his high school and college and has managed to excel in pretty much all of them. Although he was not always the most motivated when it came to studying, outside of the tutoring sessions, once he reached college, he realized that in order to achieve his goals, he was going to have to work harder than ever. He saw the opportunity and the challenge that college presented and he took it on head first. He achieved his goal of getting straight A’s his first year of college, while continuing to take some of the more challenging courses available (he took Calculus this year, just for fun).

Laura describes Mena as a determined and bright student. She says that she enjoys working with him because of how focused and prepared he always is during their tutoring sessions. He has a clear respect for education and educators. Laura has not been the only tutor to work with him; Mena has had a few substitute tutors to help him along the way (when Laura has been unavailable). Each one of his tutors has said nothing but wonderful things about Mena. The first things they always mention is how bright, respectful and eager to learn Mena is. Each of our tutors that has worked with Mena has expressed the joy they feel from working with a student who loves to learn and who also challenges them to be better educators.

Mena is a fantastic young man who sets high goals for himself and achieves them. He never ceases to impress us. He was previously selected as one of our 2014 Share Your Passion Facebook Scholarship Winners – he wrote a fantastic essay about his passion for the arts. Additionally, he was also selected as our May 2014 Student of the Month. He has proven to be an absolute joy to work with and a true inspiration. We know many more successes will follow.

We would like to thank and congratulate both Mena and Saly for trusting us these past 2.5 years and for letting us be part of their academic journey.

On July 13th, 2016, we were delighted to be able to interview Mena and his mother, Saly. To learn about their academic and tutoring experience, click to watch the video.

For the month of April 2016, we selected Adrian Gonzalez as our Student of the Month. Adrian receives his tutoring in Rancho Cucamonga. Adrian is in the 6th grade and he attends Etiwanda Intermediate School. We have been working with Adrian since October 2015. For the past 7 months, he has been working with our tutor, Melissa, to help improve his understanding of math. Since he started receiving tutoring, Adrian has become a lot more confident and his attitude towards math has improved greatly. We wanted to congratulate Adrian on his hard work and improved grades by nominating him as our April  2016 Student of the Month.

When we first began working with Adrian he was not too interested in math. His tutor, Melissa, says that he seemed to be discouraged because he didn’t fully understand math’s function or purpose. Melissa goes on to say, “Since Adrian struggled in math, he was a bit resistant at first to understand the material or attempt his homework.” Although Adrian was not a huge fan of math, he was always such a wonderful student to work with. Melissa describes Adrian as being a very kind and respectful student who was always ready to learn. Melissa added, “He (Adrian) is always prepared to work and is never afraid to ask questions or admit when he doesn’t understand. I also enjoy working with Adrian because his family is such a great support system they always encourage him to improve and are very proactive in helping Adrian, which has definitely showed in his work and attitude towards learning.” It is thanks to the support system, his positive attitude, and the help of Melissa, that Adrian was able to change his impression of a previously thought to be tough subject.

With a little bit of work and encouragement Melissa soon managed to get through to Adrian and teach him the importance of math and how to approach it in a way that was more manageable. They worked hard throughout the 7 months and their hard work paid off immensely. Melissa says, “Adrian is comprehending math a lot more, he’s able to show examples of his work and explain the process much better. He has shown a lot more interest in learning and really giving it his best shot.” She then added, “As his tutor, I couldn’t be more proud of him, I’m so glad his confidence with math has improved and I can’t wait to see him continue to grow and improve even more.” We too are very proud of Adrian’s growth and we know his parents are as well. We are lucky to get to work with students like Adrian – students who are highly motivated and simply need a bit of a push and guidance to live up to their full potential.

Sarah, Adrian’s mother, says, “My son Adrian has excelled very much from The Tutoring Solution. His tutor Melissa is awesome! I see my son with more confidence in math. As a parent, all we want is the best for our son and I am very very happy with the tutoring my son has received.” We are thrilled to have helped  Adrian realize that he is capable of tackling the tough math problems head on and succeeding.

We too are very proud of you Adrian and we are delighted to call you our April 2016 Student of the Month. Keep up the fantastic work!

For the month of February 2016, we selected Brianna Cano as our Student of the Month. Brianna receives her tutoring in Corona. Brianna is in the 10th grade and she attends Eleanor Roosevelt High School. We have been working with Brianna since September 2015. She has been working with our tutor, Laura, to help improve her understanding of Algebra II. Since she started receiving tutoring, Brianna’s test scores and grades have improved greatly as has her understanding of Algebra II. We wanted to congratulate Brianna on her hard work and improved grades by nominating her as our February 2016 Student of the Month.

We began working with Brianna at the beginning of the school year. Her mother approached us because Brianna was struggling with Algebra II and they wanted to get a tutor to work one-on-one with her and help her gain a better understanding of the specific topics she was struggling with in her Algebra II class. Brianna is the type of student that takes her education very seriously and takes advantage of her tutoring sessions in order to ensure that she is learning as much as she can. Laura describes Brianna as being a quiet student who “takes her studies seriously”. She added, “Brianna listens really well. She usually gets my explanations the first time. Brianna is smart and hard working”.

Her dedication to learning has helped her make great strides. Laura says that when she first began working with Brianna, she had to help her a lot with her homework, because Brianna did not have as great of an understanding of Algebra II; however, as time went on, Brianna required less and less help. Laura said, “Now I mostly watch and advice when she (Brianna) makes mistakes, which is not very often. Sometimes she needs a mini lecture on the topic, but that is mostly because she has a new math teacher this semester.” Not only has Laura noticed an improvement, her parents have as well. Sally, her mother said, “She (Brianna) loves working with Laura and her grades have improved tremendously”.

We love seeing our students prosper and become confident learners. We are very happy that we could take part in helping Brianna achieve some of her academic goals and we are thankful for the opportunity to work with such a bright young lady. We are delighted to hear that the feeling is mutual. Sally said, “She is very grateful that she was chosen (as Student of the Month) and wants to say thank you for everything. We are all very grateful for your service”.

Congratulations Brianna! We hope you continue to work as hard as you have been working and that you reach all of your goals.
