My main area of expertise is mathematics but I am available for tutoring physics as well. I have a degree in math. 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 very 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!

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.
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.
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.
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!
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!
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.
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.
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.
Best tutor we have had for our daughter, he stays on task and keeps her engaged in what she is doing
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.
I have helped students better their ACT and SAT scores for a few years now, I have an understanding of how those tests work. I have built strategies that help students improve their scores and build confidence.
I have earned a degree in mathematics. I have been tutoring for 10 years and specialize in understanding the material, not just remembering formulas to pass a test. I know how to adjust to a student's learning style if they are having difficulty understanding the material.
I have an associates degree in math earned through Mira Costa College. I have been tutoring university level math for many years. I have learned many ways to help teach a student math, l know all students do not learn the same and different approaches to the material are necessary for understanding.
I have earned an associates degree in math while I was attending Mira Costa College. I finished top of my class in Calc 1 and Calc 3. I have tutored many students in differential, integral, and multivariable Calculus and am fluent with the material.
I have earned an AS-T in Mathematics from Mira Costa College. Linear Algebra is the highest math they teach at that school and is a requirement for the AS-T in Mathematics. I finished with the highest grade in my class. I have also tutored Linear Algebra for some time now.
