"Her presence has really been life changing!"
ARIANA from Inglewood, CA
Have you ever met someone who is willing to go the extra mile to help someone? Fatima is the most understanding, caring, and hard working person that I have ever encountered. She is truly passionate for what she does— teaching her students in the most effective way possible. She figures out exactly what it is that needs to be done or improved and guides you along the way. She creates a timeline that is reachable, with tasks that need to be completed before her next visit. Fatima has an ability to create a student teacher one on one environment where active learning takes place. She makes sure that whenever she tutors me, I have a quiet, organized place where I can have the ability to focus. She has excellent written and verbal communication skills, is extremely organized, reliable and computer literate.
There was times where I felt stressed because the material that needed to be learned was a quite a full load, but she always stayed as long she could and motivated me to believe that I could excel in every course. The most challenging class was College Honors: World Regional Geography. Even though Geography was not one of the courses specifically on her profile, her versatility in the subjects she teaches is what led her to tutor me. On one of the geography exams, I achieved the highest grade on the exam!
Fatima is very caring, and as a result if I ever had a question she was more than happy to answer any questions that I had. In addition, she allowed me to call her whenever I needed assistance; even if she were in the middle of something, she would take the time to accommodate my needs as soon as possible.
Fatima also tutored me in Fundamentals of Biology as well as World Literature 1650 CE- the present, and Shakespeare plays-tragedies/Romance.
Currently, this summer, she has been my College Consultant and Counselor. She is helping me with the transfer process into a 4-year university. In Fall 2011, she will continue to tutor me in Fundamentals of Chemistry.
Fatima has truly been an inspiration, a role model, a mentor, and a friend. I am truly grateful to have had the chance to find such a great instructor. She has believed in me more than any other tutor I have ever had in the past. Fatima has inspired me to set high goals for myself and achieve in life all my dreams and aspirations. In addition, she has taught me to be resilient in spite of difficulties. She always reminded me that through experiences that come, something good will come out of it, and with faith you can achieve greater things. Fatima truly cares about her students. She does not see her time spent with students as an obligation rather her interest.
Her presence has really been life changing.

Fatima is an outstanding tutor. She makes sure that you are reviewing on your own by providing lots of homework. This is very helpful because it forces the individual to practice on their own!!
"Fatima is the best tutor I have ever hired!!!!!"
Lisa from Redondo Beach, CA
She is the best! I can't say anything else except that! She is intuitive and knows what my daughter needed. I am very blessed to have met her! No doubt she is helping my daughter and I am thankful for that!
"A very patient tutor"
Juliett from Pasadena, CA
I'm an adult student, my last chemistry class was high school, it was a challenge but Fatima helped me through it. I will continue to engage her services to help me with my other classes.
"She delivered 100 points on my daughter's AP biology! Final. "
Miran from Santa Monica, CA
Two weeks before my daughter's AP bio final we have contacted Fatima for help. she was very eager to help. Fatima drove long distance through heavy traffic hours to meet my daughter and stayed many hours during the crunch time. She was dedicated, focus and responsible. My daughter received 100 on her final. I strongly recommend hiring Fatima from beginning of the school year, which I much regret not doing.
"Very warm and patient!"
Mercedes from Playa Del Rey, CA
You can tell that Fatima loves what she does. She was very patient with my son and he warmed up to her pretty quickly. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a tutor.
"Caring and Reliable! A total Life Saver!"
Erin from Beverly Hills, CA
I took Intermediate Algebra this summer and was overwhelmed by how fast the teacher was going through the material. I was failing the course until Fatima started tutoring me. She was very patient and made sure I understood all the concepts the teacher was presenting. I ended up turning my failing grade into an A. I am so grateful for her help. I couldn’t have done it without her. I would recommend her to any of my friends and family who was looking for a tutor in Math.

Jaydah from Gardena, CA
Fatima helped me get through this semester even when I thought it would be impossible.. I had a teacher that left me out to dry. I was failing my geometry class and needed help ASAP. My father contacted Fatima and things started to look up. She has always been professional and patient and my parents love her. With only 8 weeks left in the semester I was able to pull my grades up to an A level so that I improved my grade in the course. I am sooo grateful for her and appreciate her for taking the time out to not only tutor me but to care enough to help me excel.
"Fantastic, professional, reliable tutor! "
Gail from Los Angeles, CA
Fatima, or Shanaz, as she was called, is a fantastic tutor. My son is a junior in high school, and although he is a straight A student, he just didn't seem to be able to do well on the SAT. He first took the SAT with no prep, did horrible on it. Then, he started working with Fatima, and she was so patient with him. She has a very engaging manner and he responded to her immediately. She was always punctual for all the sessions, always sent him an email the next day with a summary of what they had worked on in the previous session and also what homework he should try to accomplish before the next lesson. She is extremely professional and responsible. After working with her, he re-took the SAT and his score went up 190 points. Then, he kept working with her and took the ACT, and this time his ACT score went up even higher! At that point he decided he had done well enough on the ACT to not have to retake it again. Which was his goal all along!
All I can say, is, if you or your child needs tutoring for any subject, please contact Fatima...She is the best!
Fatima replied on 9/7/2012:
Thank you for the wonderful review Gail! I always tell my students, the more work and practice you put in between our sessions, the higher your SAT or ACT score will go up. What I have found with my students is: put in the work, and there is no limit as to how high your score can go. Tell me what your goal is and, as a team, we will achieve it. It's all about learning and practicing the strategies, and getting into the testmaker's mind. Often, it is hard to do SAT/ACT homework amidst schoolwork, but it pays off!
" A Wonderful Tutor that you can Count on"

We needed a tutor to help our daughter with the ISEE test. This was my first time using WyzAnt, I like the setup and how you select the tutor of your choice. I read Fatima's Bio, which was impressive, but sometimes what's on paper is not always the case. I emailed her, and she immediately responded. I asked several questions and I was comfortable with the responses. From those emails I selected Fatima to tutor my daughter.
From the first meeting I knew I picked the right tutor. Fatima talked to my daughter and found out what her likes and dislikes and wanted to know how she felt about her subjects. Which was nice to see, my daughter just recently took a test preparation for the ISEE exam on the pre-test results, she was struggling in a few areas. Fatima went over those areas and set-up plan to address those issues.
Each lesson was structured to go over the questions and how to solve them, in a timely manner. Making sure that she took her time and read each question carefully.
One thing I really like after each lesson she gave us an assessment of what was discussed during each lesson. Also she gave her homework, which was so beneficial, finally she had a tutor that was not only knowledgeable but patient and spoke to my daughter at her level.
Good tutors are hard to find, if you're looking for a tutor to help your child, Fatima is the one for you. I already gave out her name and website to other parents, but I definitely plan to use Fatima again in the near future. Thank you for bringing out the best in my daughter.
Cameron from Los Angeles, CA
Fatima is a great tutor for chemistry and for biology. I ended up dropping chemistry because I found Fatima too late in the semester, however, she did help tremendously with Biology. She has a vast understanding of all biological concepts and processes. She is also extremely patient and is willing to spend as much time as is needed for you to understand tricky concepts. I would definitely use her again, and would recommend her to anyone struggling or needing extra help in science!
F from Palos Verdes Peninsula, CA
Ms. Fatima is a highly intelligent and hard working tutor with super integrity. We feel very lucky that we found someone like her to help our daughter. We look forward to growing up with our daughter with the help of this tutor!
"Life Saver!!! "
Mary from Palos Verdes Peninsula, CA
Fatima is amazing. I have been working with her for over a month now in Human Physiology. She not only has improved my grades thus far, but has also relieved much test anxiety and stress. She is extremely patient and has great methods on test strategy. I definitely look forward to every tutoring session with Fatima because I know that she will help me better understand the material. No question is a stupid question as we all hear in a classroom setting, but REALLY THERE ARE NO STUPID QUESTIONS with Fatima. Fatima has been a blessing this semester and I am so happy I found her!
"Fatima is fantastic!"
Kiarra from Los Angeles, CA
Very nice, patient, and understanding. Helps me with Sat Prep, Act Prep, and homework. She really cares about me and my future.
"Fatima is Brilliant and a Fantastic Tutor!"
Jon from Lawndale, CA
Many tutors simply help you solve the problems that you are struggling with. Fatima is focused on helping you understand the process behind the problems. I was having difficulty in chemistry and Fatima was extremely patient in walking me through each step of the problem solving process. For each problem she wrote down a step by step algorithm on how I should approach similar problems in the future. She is extremely intelligent, kind, patient, and thorough. I highly recommend her!
