About Kareemah

Tutoring should not feel like punishment, it should feel like an opportunity to learn the material on YOUR terms, with a coach (me) helping you achieve your best potential. My passion and enthusiasm for learning are contagious. Being a tutor, for me, is about having a unique combination of skill, passion and ability to build rapport. As a Harvard graduate, who currently works at MIT, I know that hard work and dedication to education can have a lasting impact. My goal is that you learn the concepts so well that YOU feel empowered and confident in your studies.

I have had the pleasure of helping hundreds of students realize their own potential and see their grades and test scores improve. I specialize in tutoring Math (including algebra, accounting, finance etc.) and Reading and Writing skills for success in school and on the SAT,GED, and the LSAT.

My goal is to engage you, to make uncomplicate Geometry proofs, to help you understand the strategy required to earn a top score on your standardized test and/or to help you write that spectacular essay that will "wow" an admissions committee.

I hold two general types of sessions:

1) Homework review/homework help: In these sessions, I work with the student to complete the assignment accurately, noting areas of difficulty and explaining broad concepts.
2) Conceptual review: These sessions focus more on reviewing concepts. I usually bring problems of my own. The session is highly interactive, and is more like a specialized highly tailored, highly individualized classroom session.

My standards for quality are very high. I really look for clients who I can continue to work with on an ongoing basis, for that reason, rest assured that if you are not completely satisfied with your session, you will be entitled to a refund.

I do have a cancellation policy in place, but make every effort to work with you to ensure that you are able to makeup materials/time we missed.

I can reserve library space for students in the Brighton area on BC's campus, but am also free to travel to coffee shops and/or student's homes if requested.

I look forward to working with you to succeed in your studies!

Very helpful and pleasant tutor — Kareemah worked with my 15 year old freshman daughter as she approached algebra exam. She was knowledgeable and quite helpful.

She has always responded promptly to my scheduling requests. ...
