I've passed CBEST (the test teachers take to get licensed in California), CSET General Science subject tests, and also the CSET Biology and Chemistry subtests. I graduated from college summa cum laude with a 3.9 GPA. I received a Bachelor of Science in Biology, with a Psychology minor. I achieved a lot of advanced, in-depth science knowledge from attending medical school. In any case, the strength of a good tutor lies not only in mastering the knowledge, but in also being able to deliver it to the student effectively. I've been told by my students that I am a pro at this! If you let me tutor you, I guarantee that you will truly understand the material better. Also, I guarantee that you will have a lot of fun during our tutoring sessions!
One of my strengths as a tutor lies in the fact that I am very versatile, both in terms of the age groups I can work with, and the subjects I can teach. This versatility is actually what I enjoy most about my tutoring experiences. Currently, I am working with students in elementary school, high school, college and also graduate school. Some of the subjects I teach include Algebra, Biology, Chemistry, Physiology, Biochemistry and English. I am also tutoring a number of students in SAT, ACT, ISEE, and SSAT prep.
I’m an extremely effective tutor. I’ve been tutoring for many years. During college, I tutored many introductory and advanced Science courses. I worked for a different tutoring company for about a year, and tutored Biology, Physics, Chemistry, Algebra, Geometry and more. It was a great experience, and I’ve gotten amazing feedback from all my students, parents and administration. Joining WyzAnt has been an unbelievable experience for me, and I feel blessed to be able to make a difference in my students' lives.
So how am I unique? When I tutor, I don’t just look superficially at the subject that the student wants assistance on. I look at the student as a whole. This includes their educational background, study habits, interests and future goals. I feel that this entire picture helps me help the student better. I also feel that a student will learn best from me only once they trust me. I want to not only serve as their tutor, but also as a positive role model and mentor!
Here’s a little about me… I love to run! I guess that’s my biggest hobby. I have participated in competitive distance running all throughout high school and college. I was State Champion in high school, and still hold the 10K record at my college (have held it for the past six years!) I’ve participated in, and done well in, many races since then. I would love to coach cross-country and track, and pass my love of running and fitness on to you! I have also always had a great passion for nutrition and fitness in general. With all my experience as a competitive athlete and being a health buff, I know I’ll be a great coach!
I’ve also taken piano lessons for about eight years (practical and musical theory). I’ve played in Carnegie Hall, which was a great experience. I’d love to teach this also!
I look forward to hearing from you soon!

I will charge half the time we scheduled if you cancel outside of 24 hrs. This is to ensure that I clearly provide students with my availability. Also, I have to pay my sitter either way. Thank you!
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.
My daughter has had some difficulty with Adv Algebra/ Beg Trig in Poly PACE program. She received a few failing grades on quizzes and tests. With Fatima's help she just got a B on a test and has raised grade point avg from C to B. She also has more confidence and isn't feeling blocked going into finals. Thanks Fatima!
Thank you so much for your wonderful words Jody! I look forward to continue helping Helyn go nowhere but up!
Fatima is a wonderful tutor and I appreciate her dedication to my work. She was very helpful and encouraging with every subject area and always had a smile.
Fatima is the Best! After my daughter meets with Fatima she's always confident and ready to take on the challenge. Very thankful for Fatima’s help.
My son feels very comfortable with Fatima. She knows her stuff! She's very knowledgeable and gives him great tips to help him improve his SAT score.
Thank you, Fatima! My daughter just got her SAT scores back and she scored 2270, with a perfect 800 in Math! You did a great job in helping her focus on the correct areas.
Everyone should go to Fatima!! She is the smartest, best, most patient tutor out there!! She will do whatever it takes to help you to succeed!! She is literally an encyclopedia of knowledge and she always tries her best to make your availability work!!! Highly recommend her!
My student and Fatima seem to have developed a nice bond and I feel that tutoring sessions are going well. She thinks Fatima is very patient and she is learning a lot. I am very pleased with how the tutoring sessions seem to be going.
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!!
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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!
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.
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!
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!
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!
Very nice, patient, and understanding. Helps me with Sat Prep, Act Prep, and homework. She really cares about me and my future.
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!
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I've taken the CBEST, and have passed with flying colors. I've also taken the two General Science CSET exams, and the CSET Biology exam, and did extremely well on both exams. I can teach you the newest, most up-to-date material, and strategies to ace this exam! I am also a great writer, and help you acquire the skills necessary to write fantastic essays!
I have gone through high school, undergraduate and graduate school, and therefore have first-hand experience with the ins and outs of the application process. More useful, however, is the fact that since I have become a private tutor, I have worked with several students in the college application process. I am great at researching, discussing ideas, and brainstorming. I can create a list of deadlines, and will motivate you to stick by it. I have helped create immaculate personal statements, and have even written recommendation letters for some of my long-term tutees! My student feedback regarding college counseling speaks for itself. I look forward to helping you during this exciting time, and hope to help you achieve your highest goals! I promise, that with my help, you will put your best foot forward.
I took Genetics both as a Biology major, and also while attending medical school, where I gained more advanced Genetics knowledge. In addition, I have performed extensive Genetics research during my undergraduate education, so I understand the subject in an in-depth level. Genetics has also always been a personal passion of mine, so I constantly keep up-to-date on new developments! I look forward to helping you enjoy Genetics!
I have tutored a couple of students so far on the ISEE and SSAT. I can tutor lower, middle and upper level. I am very aware of the newest material and strategies to do well on these exams, and have tutored students to success. I can tutor both the Math and Verbal sections effectively. Get ready to get into the school of your choice!
I have taken a Microbiology course both in my Biology major, and also a more clinically focused course in medical school. Both courses included a lab component. With all my experience tutoring Biology, and more specific Biology courses, I feel like I am fully equipped to tutor Microbiology!
I have taken both General Chemistry and a competitive Organic Chemistry class with other pre-health (medicine, dental, etc.) majors. I did well in the class, and I also touched upon some Organic Chemistry concepts in my Biochemistry, Genetics and Physiology classes while in medical school. Overall, I have a thorough understanding of the concepts taught in Organic Chemistry.
I have a very strong science background. I was a Biology major in college, and then attended medical school. In medical school, I took an in-depth course on pharmacology, in which I did very well! As with all the other subjects I tutor, I have a thorough, and clear understanding of the material. This is especially important with pharmacology, as many students fall into the trap of simply memorizing drugs. It is important to truly understand the science and physiology behind the study of drugs, instead of simply memorizing. Also, because this is a topic that includes a lot of information, it is important to be able to organize the information, and, more importantly perhaps, scope out the essential details that you are required to know. I am a master of all these techniques, and am very qualified to effectively teach Pharmacology! I look forward to getting you excited about Pharmacology!
I have had about nine years of piano lessons (practical and theory). I've trained with some of the best teachers. I've passed up to Grade 8 in the Royal Conservatory of Music Series, and up to Grade 5 in Royal Conservatory of Music Theory series. I've played in numerous prestigious recitals, competitions and venues. I also played piano for my jazz band in high school. My most memorable experience was playing Rachmaninoff's Concerto # 3 in Carnegie Hall. Just as with my other subjects, I am a patient, caring and engaged teacher!
I have such a passion for playing and teaching piano, and have taught students very effectively. I look forward to passing my love of music on to you!
I believe good study skills are the key to success to anything and everything in life!!
Having been in a school environment for many years, I've come to master the art of effective studying. My mother says that, ever since I was old enough to go to school, I was always very good about doing homework on time. I would come home from school, and do my homework before playing, without my parents even having to remind me. This carried through to elementary school, and high school. Proof of being a highly effective student? I was involved in numerous clubs in high school (including being a competitive athlete all 3 seasons), and still graduated top 5 in my class!
These habits continued in college. I graduated as the top senior in my major (Biology), while on the track and cross country team, and being a leader in many other clubs and activities. These good study skills helped me thrive in medical school also.
What have I learned? Attitude is key to help you achieve your goals! You need to have a positive outlook, be resilient in spite of difficulties, and set high goals for yourself. Time management is also of utmost importance to achieve anything, and as you can see from my previous experiences, I have mastered time management well.
There's a lot more I could write about my techniques, so email me! :)
I have tutored nursing students to very high, competitive scores. I feel that I can teach this test well, because I have mastered all of the subjects that are tested on the TEAS, through my pre-med and medical school coursework, and also by working through a lot of nursing pre-requisites and nursing courses with numerous students. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!
Hello runners or prospective runners!
I'm very excited to be on this site, because it means that it can potentially link me to athletes that I can pass my passion of running on to!
I have been a star, competitive athlete all my life. I remember running in races as early as second grade. I joined my track and cross country teams while in grade school, and started doing well against class mates and my region there. In high school, I received many honors: State Group Champion in Cross-country, First Team All- County, and All- League Honors, among others. I was among the top runners in my state, and also the North East region of the US.
While in college, I joined track and cross-country as well. I set the 10KM record in 2005, which still hasn't been broken. I continue to run, and place well in competitive races in California, which is where I reside now. My passion for running is still very much alive! I am willing to coach beginner, intermediate and advanced runners.
I look forward to coaching you, and getting you excited about running!
