I graduated in Marine Mechanical Engineering in Egypt, however I didn't get a chance to work in my field. I have worked as a taxi driver and a courier driver in Australia for over 17 years. I transitioned into being a driving instructor and have been doing so since 2011. My extensive driving experience has helped me to educate my learner students, by providing them different skills and ways of approaching difficult problems. Not only am I able to pass on the basics, but also explain how our driving needs to be adjusted in different road and weather conditions. I try to keep it as simple as I can. I have a keen eye for detail, perhaps this comes from my engineering background. I am super patient, taking the time required for my student to learn all the information needed for being a safe driver. Being a driving instructor gives me satisfaction, when I see my student is understanding and developing their skill. The best moment is when they use all their learnings to pass their driving test, I love seeing their happy smiling face. I am a family man with 2 adult children, both of them have finished their studies at university and are now working. My wife worked as a lab technician and a teacher, however she has taken time away from that to take care of her mother.
