LONG ISLAND UNIVERSITY-BROOKLYN, NY
LONG ISLAND UNIVERSITY-BROOKLYN, NY (PhD)
I am a PhD. in Pharmaceutics candidate nearing my graduation in a few months. I currently tutor at the Academic Resources Center ARC at my University and have been tutoring General Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, Biology, Microbiology, Anatomy and Physiology, Pharmaceutics, Advanced Pharmacokinetics, Algebra, Precalculus, Physics, and several other undergraduate and graduate courses for 5 years. I can provide recommendation letters from both students and the Director of the Academic Resource Center upon request.
For the past two years, I have also taught a short course at the University of North Carolina School of Pharmacy to graduate students and students from the industry. A copy of the teaching certificate along with recommendations can also be provided. I have also been a teaching assistant for the undergraduate chemistry and pharmacy labs.
Prior to tutoring in the University, I have tutored privately for more than 5 years with students as young as 8 years old. Being able to connect with my younger students is one of the the things that really sets me apart. The students from Pre-K to high school see me as a friend and with my enthusiastic and energetic approach, I'm also able to hold on to their attention and keep them looking forward to the tutoring sessions!
I've had the great pleasure and experience of tutoring students from schools such as Friends Seminary, The Birch Wathen-Lenox School, United Nations International School, Trinity School, York Prep, St. Ignatius Loyola Parish school, Eleanor Roosevelt Highschool, Brooklyn Technical Highschool, The Montclair Kimberley Academy, McNair Academic Highschool, New York University, Cornell University, St. Johns University, Pace University, Sophie Davis School of Medicine and several other high school and university students. I've realized that no matter how rigorous the requirements throughout the school year are, the key to academic success is in mastering study skills and organization, and thoroughly understanding the subject matter. Although I never promised grades, I've been successfully able to implement these in all my students and they all have done very well in terms of grades.
I am very patient and I love teaching. It brings me great joy when I am able to help a student understand something and it makes my day when my students notify me that they've done well on their quizzes and tests. I am flexible, however I do require a 24 hour notice for cancellations. I look forward to being your tutor. I am a PhD. in Pharmaceutics candidate nearing my graduation in a few months.

Ami was very flexible in her time with me. Which meant, I could email her the information and homework ahead of time, and she would come prepared to really get down to business with me. I had to pass my Microbiology course in a 10 week session, so I didn't have a lot of time to really mull over the ideas myself, and Ami P. really helped me to put the concepts together and correct me when I was way off. Her explanations were super clear, and really helped me to stop focusing on my frustration, and learn about how neat modern Microbiology really is... Pretty awesome. I love it. (I also had other tutors, and by far Ami was my favorite).
Ami has been an excellent tutor in guiding me through the very difficult concepts of master's level pharmacology. As a graduate student at Georgetown University, I had never come up against a class that gave me so much difficulty. Ami partnered with me throughout the entire class, reviewing pharmacology concepts and class material with me. I felt I had a huge advantage over the other students with Ami as my guide. I truly have a more complete understanding of the concepts covered in my course. I would recommend Ami as a tutor in pharmacology. She truly knows her stuff and explains concepts in ways that are much more understandable. Thank you again, Ami.
Ami's very knowledgeable and patient, and she has a lot of experience with the subject. She anticipates what I'll be tested on and creates a weekly plan just for me. She has even made up supplementary material to fill any gaps in my understanding and to help make studying easier and more intuitive. Ami presents the information to me in a way that I can understand, and I always enjoy our sessions. I can tell she loves the material and cares about her students. Frankly, I didn't like inorganic chemistry before, and I still think organic is a real pain. Ami understands this. She knows what my strengths and weaknesses are and determines the best approach for me. You won't regret working with Ami. She's a delight!
Ami has been helping my 5th grade daughter with her math and we saw results after just one session. Ami is patient but also sets appropriate expectations for my daughter. Wish there was an Ami for every subject.
Ami is an excellent tutor and very patient. I am currently a pre-nursing major and taking chemistry. Having Ami as my tutor has been a huge help and has definitely helped me improve my test scores. She takes her time to explain concepts and problems and makes sure you are able to understand them. She is very patient and friendly. My sessions so far have been great and I feel much more confident in class knowing that I have her help, she really makes things easier and breaks down concepts so that they are not so difficult to understand.
In three lessons (really the first two), my daughter's test grades increased by two letter grades. She is great at explaining the material and very patient. Thanks Ami!
We have now had additional lessons with Ami. My daughter's grades have improved as has her confidence. Ami is always positive and in addition to teaching the subject matter, she provides valuable insight into how to study and take tests. Ami is also open in between lessons and is clear that our daughter doing well is her goal and what drives her satisfaction. Thank you Thank you Ami.
My daughter's feedback is very positive. Ami is caring and prompt. My daughter has indicated that she understands more in her advanced math class, and she is much more confident about her work. Ami is highly recommended.
Ami worked with my son and was very patient. She gave him questions that were very helpful in understanding the practical application of the theories he is working on. Ami even tweaked a few questions just so my son would be able to approach the work from another direction. This really helped him cement the theory and the application. Ami knows chemistry and is able to relay it in a clear and concise way. My 9th grader really liked her and found the session to be a BIG help. We look forward to working with Ami again.
I have worked with Ami for the past couple of weeks on Pharmaceutical Math Calculations. I have taken the Pharmacy Certification Test on two occasions and failed. The math was very difficult for me. Since working with Ami, she patiently sat down with me and step by step explained the math calculations to me. Because of her excellent teaching skills, I understand the math so much better! I am confident that I will pass my test next time. I highly recommend Ami if pharmaceutical math is your weakness.
I've been tutoring with Ami on Chemistry II and could not be more pleased. I am relatively new to learning the concepts and need a lot of guidance. She is extremely helpful and teaches in a way that makes sense and is understandable. Whenever I leave our sessions, I actually remember what we went over and am able to apply it to my homework. She breaks the concepts down into plain language but yet makes sure to cover the complexity of the topics.
She is very available and a fast responder via email or text- plus she provides "homework" to do in between our sessions to help reinforce the lessons learned. Her demeanor is pleasant and she's easy to work with, plus she was very amenable to finding a suitable location that worked for both of us to tutor at. She is prompt and reliable- and really knows her subjects. Great tutor!
We have used Wyzant in the past, however Ami is by far the best tutor we have had. My daughter needed some help with High school Chem and Algebra 2. Ami was well prepared, friendly, and gave my daughter the boost of self confidence she needed. I was not sure if FaceTime tutoring would be effective but I am a believer now after 2 sessions. We send Ami sample questions via email so that she could interact and review with my daughter live. We look forward to continuing with her and highly recommend her!
I was really struggling with organic chemistry and Ami found many different ways to help me understand the material in a quicker more helpful way. Reading the textbook was very time-consuming and was just causing me more confusion and Ami tackled problems in different ways that helped me to understand what was going on. She's an incredibly patient, nice person and she's very understanding about how difficult organic chemistry can be. It also helped that she attended the same college as me so she had a better idea about what the curriculum is about. I went to a 4-year college and got a Bachelors degree, but it had been awhile since I took chemistry so that attributed to me having difficulty understanding organic chemistry. Also, I took chemistry at a different school so I wasn't familiar with Long Island University's organic chemistry class, it was CHM 121, but Ami helped me to gain some confidence about the material and she was very helpful in doing so. I'm glad I picked her as a tutor and she was able to meet me whenever and wherever was convenient and was on time. If there were to be an issue, it wasn't difficult to reach her at all and she answered promptly.
Ami is a wonderful tutor. I am a college student in Chemistry 102 (first year chemistry for pre-med/science majors). As a motivated student with a poor professor, Ami has been the perfect solution. She is consistently available, easy to reach, and extremely engaged. It is apparent that she cares about her students and wants them to do well. Ami always gave me the impression she was listening to my concerns, was well prepared for our sessions, and even put in the extra effort to write up practice exams to review important concepts. I feel extremely lucky to have found her on WyzAnt, and would highly recommend her to anyone taking Chem.
Ami is very kind and good-natured, and though precalc and physics are never fun she makes it easier to understand. She helps me with homework and preparing for tests. If we don't finish everything that session she always makes time to help me in her own time; she is available so whenever I have questions I can either text or email her for help too.
I'm a nursing student, and I struggled with chemistry. I had one session with Ami, and I was amazed by her. She is so intelligence, patient and sweet. I enjoy my tutoring experience with her. I look forward to seeing her again for future sessions.
My daughter was having a difficult time with her first-year college English assignments. She was struggling when it came to argument essay structure in particular. Ami read her work, and showed her how to better her wording and placement. My daughter enjoys Ami's easygoing approach to improving her English skills. She went from B's to A's since Ami came into our lives. Thank you Ami!
This has been our first experience getting a tutor and naturally we were nervous about whether the person we pick will be right for the job. Ami arrived promptly on time and I immediately felt that it was a very good choice. She is warm and understanding. She patiently went over his school work and tests/quizzes and made very valuable suggestions to my son on how to improve his work. My son felt very comfortable with her and thinks she is great.
Looking for a tutor who is proficient in both Pre Calculus and Chemistry is not easy. It took a long time to find someone who is highly qualified in both. When I first detected an accent, I was a bit apprehensive if it would be a detriment. It turns out, my daughter understood everything she said, and it was not an issue whatsoever. Ami P. is not only highly qualified, she is patient, pleasant, and to my delight, very respectful. She wasted no time in finding out what my daughter needed, and was very clear in her approach for each subject. She is also very good at following up.
Ami is a wonderful tutor. We feel so comfortable with her. My daughter opens very well with her. She is patient and extremely thorough in what she does.
Love love love her.
We found Ami to prompt, well mannered and highly knowledgeable of her subject. She was a tremendous help to us and I would recommend her to anyone in need of help with Chemistry. She is a true pro.
My daughter is math challenged and knows she needs extra help. Her connection to Ami was immediate and positive. Ami's approach is solid, consistent and sensitive to my daughter's learning style. My daughter enjoys her sessions and is motivated to do her homework and continue working towards new goals. We could not be more satisfied.
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.
