About Musa

Hello everybody.

I received a degree in Pharmacy from the University of Jordan, and completed my boards onshore in 2012, I currently work at Shire Pharmaceuticals as a Process Improvement Leader.

I have been a tutor for nearly a decade, specializing in Biology, Chemistry, Pharmacy/ Forensics, and Arabic at both the high school and collegiate levels. Over the years I've developed an in-depth understanding of all the subject matter I deal in, and do my best to pass on this knowledge to my students. I realize there is a lot to memorize in the subjects I teach, but with a complete knowledge of a few basic principles I can make your studies substantially easier to organize.

Once I teach you the fundamentals of biology or chemistry or whichever subject you need help in, I will constantly refer back to them throughout our lessons, ensuring that you don't just memorize whatever your current plan is, but actually retain the material. I want you to understand why the subject matter is the way it is so that you don't simply forget it once our lesson is over. With the right tutor, these seemingly impossible-to-learn subjects can be broken down into easy-to-understand concepts, and your studies will be much more organized.

I have a very flexible schedule, and I prefer to meet in a public place such as a library or a coffee shop. Message me and let me know what your needs are and when/ where you would like to meet. With my many years of tutoring experience at several different levels and my in-depth understanding of everything having to do with biology/ chemistry/ or Arabic, I'm the perfect tutor for all of these needs.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

Arabic

I lived for almost 26 years in Jordan, so Arabic is my first language. In addition to that, I used to teach Arabic for Foreigners in my country at all levels for reading, listening, speaking and writing. I also taught advanced Arabic I and Advanced writing for Arab students.

Biology

As a pharmacist, I took many classes covering most of the Biology field, including but not limited to general biology (the cell, respiration, mitosis/ meiosis, physiology, photosynthesis, evolution, etc.)
I mastered Biochemistry as well as Molecular Biology. I use this knowledge every day in my current position, ensuring I never forget it. I've tutored AP Biology, Collegiate Biology, as well as MCAT.

Chemistry

As a pharmacist, I have taken General Chemistry, Nuclear Chemistry, and Physical/Medicinal Chemistry. I'm an expert in all types of reactions and formulas (stoichiometry), stereochemistry, and many other topics. At Shire Pharmaceuticals, we use many of these chemical concepts (pH adjustments, alcohol/ temperature adjustments, precipitations, etc.) to purify our proteins of interest.

Organic Chemistry

As a pharmacist, I have taken all related organic chemistry classes. I'm an expert in all types of reactions and formulas (stoichiometry), stereochemistry, and many other topics. At Shire Pharmaceuticals, we use many of these chemical concepts (pH adjustments, alcohol/ temperature adjustments, precipitations, etc.) to purify our proteins of interest. I've specialized in carbon chains, structural isomers, functional groups and their relative reactions (SN1, SN2, E1and E2) in addition to many other topics.

Pharmacology

I have a degree in Pharmacy from the University of Jordan, and have expertise in Pharmacology and Pharmacotherapy. I passed the FPGEE (Foreign Pharmacy graduated equivalency examination) from (NABP) National association of Boards of Pharmacy in 2012.
I've been a tutor for almost 4 years in the subject matter related to Pharmacology/ Pharmacotherapy/ Biopharmaceuticals/ Immunology/ Medicinal Chemistry/ Instrumental Pharmacy/ Physical Chemistry.
