About Abdullah

I have a passion for helping others understand and succeed in areas they find challenging. I believe it is crucial to have strong foundations in the basic building blocks of science and mathematics to excel as a student at any level and as such, I am dedicated to augmenting weaknesses students have in these areas in addition to concurrent teaching of advanced materials.

As the eldest of five siblings I have extensive experience tutoring mathematics and science spanning 1st to 12th grade as well as at the college level. I have coached two of my siblings for college entrance and they currently attend Smith College in Massachusetts and UCLA respectively.

While I was in college and graduate school I was a valuable resource for many of my colleagues who had difficulties in the areas of organic, inorganic and physical chemistry as well as numerous areas of mathematics, applied and proof based. As is the case with 1st to 12th grade courses, I find that at the college level many of the difficulties students face stem from issues of understanding fundamental concepts that are taught either earlier in a course or have been covered in previous courses. I aim to target such areas in my tutoring sessions while also assisting with concepts that are covered in homework or exam preparation.

I have worked with the academically gifted and with students who are struggling with their classes and I tailor my sessions to match closely the needs of those I tutor.

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.

Organic Chemistry

I have an undergraduate degree in chemical and physical biology from Harvard College, a degree that required extensive coursework in organic chemistry. I excelled in the introductory organic chemistry sequence, one of the most challenging introductory courses in the nation receiving one of the top two scores in the class. I also took an advanced organic chemistry course the following year which focused more on computational aspects of organic chemistry. I have tutored many college students in the field and they have went on to do quite well in their studies. I have also tutored AP chemistry and its organic section.

Outstanding Tutor!!

Abdullah is an outstanding instructor. He has a superior understanding and passion for math that he uses to explain difficult formulas. When explaining the principles, his delivery is calm, thorough and in terms that my son could easily understand. He challenged my son, but in an unchallenging manner. My son felt confident going into his precalculus exam and we have Abdullah to thank.
