I have also taught GRE Math, Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry, Pre-Calculus, Calculus I, and General Chemitsry through Wyzant.

- Algebra I/II
- Pre-Calculus
- Calculus I/II (Single Variable Calculus)
- Calculus III (Multivariable Calculus)
- Trigonometry
- Geometry
- Linear Algebra
- Differential Equations
- SAT/SAT Subject/ACT/GRE/GMAT Math

I have taught the following topics in Chemistry:

- Acids & Bases (pH, titration, buffer solutions, etc.)
- Basic Thermodynamics
- Solutions & Mixtures


If you are having difficulties understanding new concepts in your math class or need help preparing for a math test, I am here to help. The first session typically involves an evaluation of your needs, skill set, and goals (including setting up an appropriate time schedule for our future meetings).

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 am well qualified to tutor Arabic as it is my native language and I was born and raised in the United Arab Emirates. My experience with the Arabic language includes: (a) working as an Arabic Tour Director for State Department Arab delegates for 4 years, (b) being the president of the Arab Student Association for 2 years at the George Washington University, and (c) teaching State Dept personnel (in Washington, DC) and young adults (in Chicago, IL) speaking, reading, and writing (in Arabic).
