About Zain

My name is Zain A, and I'm a 22 year old 4th year physics student and University of California, Santa Barbara. My strengths in teaching are a patient, calm teaching style with a focus on the fundamentals. I've tutored everything from middle school math to upper division physics and I loved every minute of it.

I really enjoy science and math. Nothing brings me more joy than getting a student from "Huh?" to "Ahah!". I personally believe that anyone and everyone can benefit from learning math and physics, and anyone can do well if they're dedicated and have the right guidance.

I have a lot of experience with the pitfalls of high school and college math, having fallen into most of them. I focus on getting my students to really think about underlying concepts and making sure they don't have any holes in their knowledge.

I have taken every type of physics course imaginable, and I've gotten many students from despising physics to looking forward to our tutoring sessions. I think that a big problem with the way physics is taught in schools is that students don't have good math fundamentals, so physics concepts based on those fundamentals go over their heads. I employ a holistic approach, starting from scratch and facing all your math fears that you've shoved into the closet since 7th grade.

I also have experience with SAT prep, both general and subject tests for math and physics. My students report a noticeable decrease in test anxiety and better scores on practice exams in as little as three sessions.

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.

He explained physics force problems in ways that actually made sense verses just the chug and plug do this then that way. I feel like I left understanding things about force problems I hadn't before.
