About Shahira


Bio

Hi there! I am a University of California college graduate looking to return to teaching after my work in biomedical research. I am new to Wyzant, but spent much time tutoring as an undergraduate. I am familiar with how traditional/public education systems can overlook the specific talents and challenges of any student who does not fit the stereotypical "mold," and I am passionate about creating catered education to identify what parts of student's learning style may be left unseen in a...

Hi there! I am a University of California college graduate looking to return to teaching after my work in biomedical research. I am new to Wyzant, but spent much time tutoring as an undergraduate. I am familiar with how traditional/public education systems can overlook the specific talents and challenges of any student who does not fit the stereotypical "mold," and I am passionate about creating catered education to identify what parts of student's learning style may be left unseen in a traditional learning environment.

I prefer to treat tutoring as a partnership, and I believe that every student, no matter their age deserves an active role in their own education and intend to structure lessons surrounding the wants and needs of the student, in their own words, as well as those expressed by the parents. I begin every tutoring partnership with a free consultation where we can meet to discuss your learning goals, what sessions might look like, and if we are a good fit for each other.

I have spent the most time tutoring math with one gifted autistic child in particular who had outpaced what his elementary school math program. I reviewed the learning standards for Algebra I and Geometry, and generated a comprehensive lesson plan to formally teach him the math he was already deriving

Additionally, I have spent four years studying biology, with a particular emphasis on molecular biology, microbiology, and neuroscience in my undergraduate and graduate courses, with a final GPA of 3.73. Scientific curiosity brought me to complete 3 years as an undergraduate research assistant, beginning an independent project on coronavirus pathogenesis, which was completed in an additional year post-graduation as a hired, full-time scientist. I can offer guidance to any student pursuing academic research or simply needing extra help in the classroom.

If you have any questions regarding sessions, pricing, or availability, please do not hesitate to shoot me a message.

Shahira was very patient

I met Shahira on Wyzant .She helped with Microbiology. This was a very hard class for me since I have not been in school for many years. She has a great passion for microorganisms and their world. She was very patient with me and helped understand the fundamental concept of Microbiology. I would recommend her to anyone needing help with this hard course.
