About Basir


Bio

My main area of expertise is mathematics but I am available for tutoring physics as well. I was top of my class in calculus 1, calculus 3 and linear algebra. I have studied physics extensively, 3 semesters at a university level which encompassed everything from kinematics and motion to electricity and magnetism to relativity and quantum physics. I have been tutoring for 10 years. In high school I tutored math and chemistry. Since then I have been independently tutoring math, physics,...

My main area of expertise is mathematics but I am available for tutoring physics as well. I was top of my class in calculus 1, calculus 3 and linear algebra. I have studied physics extensively, 3 semesters at a university level which encompassed everything from kinematics and motion to electricity and magnetism to relativity and quantum physics. I have been tutoring for 10 years. In high school I tutored math and chemistry. Since then I have been independently tutoring math, physics, chemistry, and have been helping students with SAT and ACT test prep.

I thoroughly enjoy tutoring. I am patient and my main goal is the student's ability to understand the material, not just memorize formulas for an exam. It is with understanding that a student builds confidence and knows how to use and manipulate any math problem, or problem in any field, that comes his/her way. I enjoy seeing a student brighten up when they learn something new and are able to solve a once difficult problem. I have been independently tutoring for a long time and over the years I have learned how to explain an idea in different ways. Some ways work for some students but not every way works for all students so I have come up with a different way to explain some problems and their solutions. I am able to think quickly and find ways to shed light on a problem a student is having a tough time grasping. It is my aim to help the young minds of our future excel in academics!

Knowledgeable and sincerely concerned about his students

Basir has been working with my son in CALC BC and is always patient, prompt, and uses all the time productively. He has a sincere concern for my son doing well in his CALC class and is a very dedicated tutor that seems to love calculus. I would absolutely recommend him.

1st semester review for final

Basir was a great help reviewing math for a semester final. He was easy to understand and thorough. My son found the two hours really helpful. Basir responded quickly to our request for a tutor and could fit us into his schedule right away. He arrived on time and covered a lot of material in the two hour session.

Carolyn, 5 lessons with Basir

Very knowledgeable, patient, and clear

Was able to solve the problem in a number of different ways - allowed the student to chose the method best suited for the them. Worked on quadratics, factoring, quadratic formula, and completing the square.

Excellent Physics Tutor

Basir is an excellent tutor with great patience and tenacity. He is the best physics tutor you could ever imagine ! He really knows how to connect to his student, and not miss any details.

Top of line tutor!

Bashir made learning PreCalc easy and was focused on my overall understanding of the concepts. I will definitely work with him again and highly recommend him. Excellent listener.

Joel, 35 lessons with Basir

Excellent Tutor

Basir is very knowledgeable and shows considerable patience while working with him. I am enrolled in Math 64 - intermediate Algebra and have not had a math class in 8 years. Having him as my tutor is important to my success in passing this class!

Kate, 10 lessons with Basir

Very knowledgable tutor with patient and encouraging teaching skills!

Basir was a fantastic tutor for my daughter for her Alg 2/Trig Honors class. She went from not understanding most topics to completely understanding and having the knowledge to perform much better on her exams. We wish we had engaged his services at the beginning of the semester. He made such a difference and allowed my daughter to gain confidence and realize that she is and always has been a great math student! Thank you Basir!

The Math Whisperer

My daughter said today "you know how I use to be really afraid of math? I am not anymore! I feel like I get it and that I am pretty good at it!" This is the confidence Basir has given to my daughter! She use to cry over math! Thanks Basir! I am an education consultant as well and have several students who have said, "If every math teacher was like Basir, life would be great!" Basir is patient, knowledgeable and able to make connections with students by applying different methods.

Excellent and patient tutor

My daughter has been struggling with her 11th grade math and suddenly her final is looming. Thank goodness for Basir. He is so clear, concise and patient that now it makes sense to her. We provided him with her review sheet and he came to the lesson so well prepared we were very impressed. Basir is amazing.

Nikki, 3 lessons with Basir

Totally great!

Thank you for building my confidence and encouraging me. You made everything quite comfortable and relaxed and really put me at ease. I'm not frustrated anymore and I am happy to have someone who can break down calc for me.
