Hatim is a self-avowed Cairene who took the SAT and completed high school here in Egypt. Hatim left Egypt for Harvard where he earned a bachelor’s degree in Government with a secondary concentration in Philosophy. After 4 years at college in the United States he moved to Johannesburg, South Africa where he took up a teaching fellowship at the African Leadership Academy. As part of his teaching responsibilities at ALA Hatim helped to deliver a comprehensive SAT preparation program provided by a leading American test prep program. In his last year at the academy Hatim helped to prepare a graduating class that went on to matriculate at some of the finest academic institutions in the United States. Collectively, the class was awarded 14$ million in financial aid commitments over the next 4 years. Hatim views himself as something of a verbal reasoning specialist and commits himself to helping students overcome an unreasonable aversion to the intricacies of the Critical Reasoning sections on the SAT.

Adham thinks grammar is fun and enjoys good books, good movies and just enough outdoor activities to balance all the indoor activities.
