Dear prospective student:

I am patient and truly enjoy learning and tutoring and this is demonstrated through my enthusiasm when I tutor. This is why I take pleasure in designing a specific tutoring style which will meet your specific needs. Whether you're taking the course now or plan on taking any of the courses I'm qualified to tutor, 1-on-1 tutoring is the best way to gain the competitive advantage that will benefit you through your academic career and beyond.

I gain personal gratification from knowing that I'm making a difference in a student's life. Witnessing noticeable improvement in a student's performance, due to my tutoring services, is more important to me than monetary gains. The ability to establish a creative connection with a student is an inherent ability which has been thoroughly refined through my tutoring experiences. Consequently, I believe that I possess the characteristics, passion, strong work ethic, and winning attitude necessary to help students excel academically.

In the past five years, I have sharpened my instructional and tutoring abilities through my academic studies, numerous extracurricular activities, and as a tutor in Mathematics, Science, English, and Writing for the NYC Department of Education. As a tutor I prepared comprehensive lectures, modified to the unique learning style of each student and I created innovative ways of instructing.

I believe that my experiences and interests qualify me to work as a tutor for many different subject areas. I have experience in helping with writing assignments. This is in addition to the deep interest and knowledge I've acquired for mathematics and science through extensive tutoring experience and formal education. I look forward to discussing my expertise and assisting you in your academic endeavors.


I will be graduating with a bachelor’s degree in Chemical Engineering from the City College of New York in May.

Thank you for your consideration.

Sincerely,
Omar

Algebra 1

I have over 5 years of experience tutoring algebra 1 and I have the working knowledge to teach this subject to anyone whether it be a young child or an adult. References may be provided upon request.

C++

Most of the extracurricular activities I've chosen to involve myself in as an undergraduate student have involved forming algorithms and writing code by utilizing computer languages such as C++. A research opportunity I once participated in involved the use of C++ language to manipulate robotic movement via signals sent from a microprocessor to a robot. I've also taken a college level C++ course in where I received an A letter grade.

Chemical Engineering

Chemical engineering is my passion. This is the career path I've chosen to study as an undergraduate and I will probably continue on to graduate school majoring in Chemical Engineering. My love for mathematics and chemistry have drawn me to this wonderful field of study.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have had the opportunity to tutor students ranging from kindergarten to 6th grade while being employed by the NYC Board of Education and working for Champion Learning Center (CLC) as an independent contractor for over 3 years. While working for CLC I developed methods to attain and retain the attention of children by creating lectures which make the process of learning fun and educational. I tutored young children in topics such as elementary mathematics, elementary science, reading comprehension and writing mechanics.

Elementary Math

I have over 3 years of tutoring experience, acquired through my employment with Champion Learning Center, in elementary mathematics.

Elementary Science

I have over 5 years of experience in instructing students in mathematics and science on many different levels. I have also acquired the ability to creatively and effectively gain and retain the attention and inquisitiveness necessary for young children to become intrigued by all topics relating to science and mathematics.

Fortran

I have a strong background in FORTRAN and computer programming algorithms overall. I learned FORTRAN through 2 years of research at the City College of New York. I used FORTRAN to model the conductive growth of a vapor bubble on a heating surface, for the purposes of exploring the mechanism of nucleate pool boiling heat transfer.

Geometry

I acquired over 3 years of experience tutoring Geometry when I was working for the NYC Dept. of Education.

Organic Chemistry

I have taken Organic Chemistry I & II. I took both courses with the same professor and I could provide the contact information of the professor I took the course with, if necessary, as a reference. I received an A- in Organic Chemistry I and an A in Organic Chemistry II. These were one of my favorite courses.

Prealgebra

I have over 3 years of experience, acquired through my past employment with Champion Learning Center, as well as an additional year of tutoring at the Borough of Manhattan Community College as a remedial tutor for 8th grade level mathematics.

Reading

I have over 5 years of experience in tutoring writing mechanics and reading comprehension.

Spanish

I have over 3 years of experience, acquired through my past employment with Champion Learning Center, in tutoring Spanish writing and linguistics.

Study Skills

As a student who has been in college for 6 years, while working as a tutor, and assuming leadership positions in school, I had to develop strong study skills to take full advantage of my study time. From flagging down important deadlines to methods of outlining and problem solving to maximize study time, I will be able to provide the structure needed for success in studying and life overall.

Writing

I have over 5 years of experience in aiding with and editing writing assignments. I have tutored college students in writing mechanics at the Borough of Manhattan Community College and I helped students with writing and editing, ranging from 1st grade to 12th grade, when I tutored for Champion Learning Center (CLC).

Very Patient and Detailed. My son who is in 5th grade just had his first tutoring session with Omar. It is really hard to keep my son focused. Omar was very patient and very detailed. My son stayed focused the whole tutoring session which was great. I love the way Omar patiently explains things to my son and was very creative. I would highly recommend him. My son is looking forward to the next tutoring session. Thanks ...
