Hi! I'm really excited to bring several years of tutoring experience to new students!

I am a graduate of Harvard University with an honors degree in Sociology and a background in biology and chemistry research. I have been admitted to Harvard Law School, but am deferring to work for a bit. I'm also a personal trainer certified by the American College of Sports Medicine, with experience working with clients on goals such as weight loss and conditioning. I have several years of experience working with high school and middle school students individually and in groups on standardized test preparation including AP, ACT, SAT, LSAT, GED and SHSAT sessions. I also have worked with students on individual writing assignments, or simply helped them break down difficult concepts that they encounter in the classroom.

While I am well-versed in many subjects, mathematics, writing and any sort of standardized test preparation are my specialties. I also have experience working with students with learning disabilities and adults who may be experiencing attention deficit disorder. I worked with students of all different levels. I can help the overachiever continue to feel challenged and engaged in class work. I tailor my lessons to the student's interests and abilities.

Highly Recommended Tutor! — I highly recommend Kareemah S. as a LSAT tutor. Her teaching style is both professional and personable. Kareemah’s ability to design sessions tailored to ones needs are extremely helpful. She is patient and will break down any problem you find difficult until you fully understand how to approach it.
