Hello, my name is Rokaya Hijaz, and I'm here to help you get through your toughest college courses (chemistry, biology, algebra). I am a UC Berkeley graduate with over six years of teaching experience. I want to demonstrate to students that with hard work and a great tutor, they can succeed in all their courses.
Chaffey College, Instructional Assistant
2014 - Present
I served as the only Science Instructional Assistant (tutor) at Chaffey College. My role was to facilitate and support students struggling in anatomy, physiology, and chemistry courses. I created mock exams and demonstrated effective study techniques. To simplify complex material and engage students, I created diagrams, visuals, and games using course lectures. I always tried to adapt my techniques to meet the needs of all learning styles.
Inland Empire Extra Care, Medical Assistant

As a medical assistant my duties include triaging patients and reporting irregularities to the doctor. I also perform urine analyses, breathing treatments, and administer medications and ACLS as needed. In addition, I facilitate providers in treating patients with lacerations, burns, and bone injuries.
Chaffey College, Chemistry Tutor
2010 - 2012
I also aided in the organization of various educational events to increase children's interest in the science field such as the biannual chemistry magic show. I also tutored students struggling in their chemistry classes to help ensure their success.
