Karim Mikhail

Hey there! I'm Karim Mikhail, and I am a senior at Hoover High School. I am involved in HOSA, Science Olympiad, Hoover Ambassadors, and service work outside of school. My hobbies include fishing, reading, long-boarding, playing frisbee, learning new skills, and spending time with family. Thanks for checking out TSTutoring!  

Tykie Sfakianos

And I'm Tykie Sfakianos! I'm a Hoover High School senior, too. I'm involved in SGA & the Hoover Ambassadors, so maybe I'll see you around sometime! I am heavily involved in HOSA (like Karim!), except I was the president and he wasn't...

All jokes aside, many of my hobbies are outdoors...where I enjoy an array of activities including snorkeling, kayaking, and biking.  I look forward to helping many of you!

Our Team

Dr. Aisha Ellington

Hello hello! My name is Dr. Aisha Ellington, and I am the Lead Academic Instructor for the Birmingham Urban League (BUL). I am the intermediary between TST and BUL as well as a TST English tutor. Whether you may be a student or parent, I am beyond enthusiastic to work with you in the near future. Thanks!

Matthew Hajazin

Hey! I'm Matthew Hajazin, a junior at Hoover High School! I'm on the Hoover High School Tennis Team, and I'm a member of the Debate and Mock Trial Teams, too. 

For fun, I'm always up to challenge any and everyone to a table tennis match, if you dare.

Amaan Haque

What's up! I'm Amaan Haque, a senior at Hoover High School. In school, I'm a member of Science Olympiad, TEAMS, and debate. I was also a candidate for the Leukemia Lymphoma Society's Student of the Year competition, where I led my team in raising fourteen thousand dollars for leukemia research and treatment. 

Outside of school, I am quite the avid chef. Thus, my services go beyond just academics, but that's a conversation for another time.
