I'm a very diversified petroleum engineer currently working in oil industry in Houston with prior experience in South America, Europe and Asia. I was gold medalist in my bachelor's degree and also obtained best student of the year award in my master's degree, both in Petroleum Engineering. I've always been top ranked student throughout my education.

I cover multitude of subjects but specialize in middle, high school and college level maths and science subjects. I also have experience in teaching various engineering courses at undergraduate and graduate level. I help my students with their homework, assignments, quizzes, preparing review tests and final exam. I've also been helping many petroleum engineering students and working petroleum engineers with their assignments in reservoir engineering, well logging, fluid mechanics, production logging and rock mechanics just to name few.

My teaching experience with groups and individuals of different ages has helped me a lot to formulate different teaching approaches towards their needs. I focus to get the concepts across instead of following shallow memorization techniques. I know what it really takes to be a top ranked student and that's what I try to deliver. I usually get referred by word-of-mouth and recently joined WyzAnt to reach out to more students.

I am working full time as a Petroleum Engineer so I accommodate my students at evening during business days but anytime during weekend and public holidays. In order to maintain my high standards of teaching, I often ask my students and their parents for their feedback. Being an engineer, I've also seen the practical aspects of the subjects I teach.

I am looking forward to work with you on improving your grades and achieve desired success in your studies.

Cheers,
Usman
