Let Us Take A Look Into The Variety Of Asian Religions Together!

Over the course of my college career I was devoted to learning about how religion manifests within Asia. So many things seem to be philosophies rather than religions- is there a difference? Let us learn about it together!
I have taken over 10 religious studies courses of my own volition, and have tutored religious studies to several college students after gaining my degree. I can break Hinduism down- what is atman? Who are the gods? Are there several sects? Who was important to the movement of religious tolerance in India? How has this affected the development of the country? I can explain the spread of Buddhism as well as the messages behind it. I plan to explain the story of Siddhartha and how it caused a ripple effect. Taoism, Shintoism, Islam and folklore will be delved into. The growth of Christianity within Korea, and China may also be explored if the student finds interest in the topic. My main concern is to explain religions across Japan, Korea, China, and India, but that is not to say that the religions have not touched the entire world. This is through the lens of Asia, but it can be applied to understand religious growth within the U.S. as well.
No question is too small, let us conquer one of the hardest concepts together!

Experience / Qualifications

4 years of private tutoring at Sierra College and Sacramento State University
Currently working as a Research Assistant analyzing migration patterns of South Koreans due to displacement during the Korean War.
Currently working as Teachers Assistant that provides after class tutoring to 200 students.
Experienced personal tutor and teacher of 2 years, specializing in the adults who want to improve their comprehension of topics! All ages welcome, as I can make things fun and friendly while ensuring results. Lessons are customized and catered to the needs/goals of each student- want to ace an exam? Want to communicate with family members? Want to talk to that person in class? Or do you just feel like you don't understand some topics and need review? I can answer any question you have, and will be happy to assist with homework or other tasks to ensure you can catch up in courses, or get the generalized support you deserve. Our goal is to communicate- I want to communicate with you! Lets set goals and start talking now!
I will start you off with the development of Buddhism and Hinduism in India, and branch out towards the development of Confucianism in China. I will help you develop an understanding of Japanese Zen, and the relationship that Japan has had with its combination of religions. I've tutored many in the development of religions and philosophies, and it is important that both are intermingled within Asia. I help foster a safe environment to ask questions and become further enlightened within this subject. Let us work together to unpack biases, and develop a better understanding of Asian Philosophy. This is a Asian Philosophy 101 course so no prior knowledge is needed.
The history of Korea, Japan, and China are rich and intermingled. With my Magna Cum Laude Bachelors in Asian Studies focusing on Japan I can teach you about Japanese art, language, architecture, philosophy, religion, economics, development, and generalized history. I am currently working as an assistant to a Sacramento State Professor conducting research into migration patterns of South Koreans displaced by the Korean War. I can teach you about the development of Korea- about the K-wave, and the subsequent relationship they have had with Japan. I also am working as a teaching assistant and auditing courses to explain North Korea's sociology. Learning about Japan and Korea would not be complete by understanding the philosophies passed on from China. The development of the worlds current largest economy powerhouse has influenced every country in the world. China developing Africa is a recent interest of mine as it is a new form of colonialism. I can teach you about ancient East Asia, and I can teach you where it is believe the countries are heading.
My biggest fear when I started Japanese was making mistakes and being teased by others. It happened a lot, but I continued to pursue Japanese for the last 8 years of my life. I know what its like to make mistakes, and I know how nerve-wracking it is to try to do something new. I want to help you in the basics as I feel confident I can teach you how to read, write, and apply basic Japanese to your everyday life. I can teach you tips, tricks, and give you the insider scoop on how to prevail and become a proud student of the Japanese language. Even if you have not even googled how to do Japanese I can start you at the absolute basics. Lets learn together, and I can tell you about my experience abroad!

I also studied Quran & it's sciences, Tajweed, and other Islamic studies for more than fourteen years. I have studied Arabic from the International Open University and Arabic Institute. Currently, I'm also an Undergraduate student of Islamic Studies Education in the University of Lagos, Akoka. I also study under the tutelage of Sheikh Raslān from Egypt. I am a tutor of modern standard Arabic, classical Arabic (the language of Quran and Hadith) and colloquial Arabic ('āmiyyah). I love teaching Arabic because it is a very important language of Islam. Prophet Muhammad S.A.W said we should love Arabic language because: he is an Arabic, the holy Quran is in Arabic language and the language of the paradise dwellers is Arabic. I also love teaching Arabic language because it is the fifth most spoken language in the world. It is the official language of 26 countries including 5 of the wealthiest countries in the world. And it's sixth most spoken language in the world. Learning such a language will avail you to the discovery of most interesting cultures in today's world. It will also look good in your resume. With Arabic language, you'll become a polyglot and you will be able to adapt to the environments of Arab. As a Muslim, with Arabic language, you'll have thorough understanding of Quran and Sunnah. I have been tutoring Arabic and Islamic Studies since 2014 both online and offline till date. I tutor the learners between the ages of 5 - 80. The focus of my instruction is on all the important skills of the language (reading, writing, listening and speaking), grammar and vocabulary development. With these, you'll be able to intermingle with Arabic speaking people in any Arab environment you find yourself and of course, you'll have yourself prepared and fit for any formal exam. I am also certified to instruct in the memorization of Quran, the sciences of Quran like different versions of Quranic recitation (riwāyāt), the exegesis of Quran (tafsīr), e.t.c I have syllabus and materials for tutoring Arabic efficiently within a period of six to twelve months. I'm well experienced in tutoring with these books: ➡️ I love Arabic ➡️ Lessons in Arabic language ➡️ Nūrul bayān ➡️ Iqrā' qirā'tī ➡️ Qā'idāh Nūrāniyyah ➡️ Qā'idāh Makkiyyah ➡️ Qā'idāh Baghdādiyyah ➡️ Arabic in your hands ➡️ Tuhfatul Atfāl ➡️ Exegesis of Ibn Kathīr e.t.c I also have experience in teaching English language and Philosophy. Learning English language helps in developing ideas and communicating them. I would be glad to be your tutor in this journey, choose me and you will not regret it. See you in my class! I have 7 years of teaching experience. I'm a certified Arabic and English teacher. I have TESL and simplified Arabic certification. My teaching method is philosophical, experimental and persuasive.

Salman
Salams and Welcome to my classes
Memorising the Qur'an is one of the most amazing and beautiful achievements in this life. It is an act of worship for those seeking to get closer to our Lord and be rewarded in the hereafter. In this day and the current climate, its really difficult to do this with the distractions we have such as Music, TV etc.Some don't feel comfortable going to a Mosque, and parents may struggle to help due to their own daily routines. I have realised that young people are very good with learning Music lyrics or TV quotes online, so I felt why not share my experience of memorising the Qur'an and teach online to other students. I started my Hifz in November 2005, and completed the Qur'an memorisation by May 2009 Alhamdulillah. I feel I can share my skills and knowledge to help others memorise the Qur'an. It's never a race to complete in quick time. It's better to take time ensuring you remember what you have already learnt. I believe teaching online would give lots of benefits such as: save time on travel, learn with me from the comfort of your own home, and it's a 60 minute session. It would be an honour to help people complete Hifz and I would enjoy sharing my experience and skills to help others reach their goal ameen.
