I am a licensed professional engineer by trade, but I have been tutoring for about 35 years. I tutor Math, Physics, and many other subjects. I graduated from the University of Texas at El Paso in 1985 in Civil Engineering. I was a tutor for the Amarillo College tutoring system and the University of Texas at El Paso while I was attending school. I have for many years, and am currently, tutoring students privately. I helped many students improve their test scores on exams, and I can do the same for you too.

A specialty of mine, among many, is mathematics. I can show you how to work many problems two or three different ways. You can decide which method is best for you. I solve each problem step-by-step, to make sure you can see how the solution is derived. I prefer to work one-on-one to ensure that there is a complete and thorough understanding of the subject. I have helped more than 600 students achieve higher scores than what they have previously received.

I feel that through tutoring, you can change lives. I recently ran into one of my former students, 15 years removed, and she said that even though I didn't remember her she definitely remembered me. She exclaimed, "Without you tutoring me, I would have never become a registered nurse!" This makes me feel a sense of accomplishment and I want to continue to make a difference in people's lives.

Very dedicated tutor- goes beyond the call of duty — I do find Basem a tutor who is patient and dedicated to his students. He can be reached at short notice and is always willing to help his students up their grades. He goes way beyond the call of duty, sometimes spending more than the time he gets paid for. He did something that still astounds me - I told him that my daughter's grades in Pre AP Physics and Pre Calc were dropping and he was genuine ...
