About Usman

I am a recent UCR alumni with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biochemistry and a minor in Statistics. Up until college I had done a variety of freelance tutoring for high school students in subjects such as AP chemistry and SAT Math. During my time at UCR I was employed by the Academic Resource Center for two jobs, the first as a Supplemental Instruction Leader and the second being a tutor for the subjects of Chemistry, Calculus and Physics. The role of a supplemental instruction leader was to create review sessions for any student for classes that had historically been difficult for students such as the sciences and in addition those sessions would be approved by professors teaching the subjects we were assigned. My tutoring style is based heavily upon the student's needs and what they need. During my employ at UCR I had created a variety of resources such as worksheets, quizzes and online webpages created for the purpose of supplementing student learning.

I hope you consider me when looking a 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.

Algebra 2

I have been tutoring math from elementary up to single variable calculus. I have been privately tutoring on Wyzant since I finished high school, but more recently I have been employed by University of California, Riverside as a supplemental instruction leader to aid students in their understanding of calculus, chemistry and physics.

Biology

I can tutor up to AP/college level general biology.

Chemistry

I can teach up to AP/college level general chemistry with a cumulative 4.0 GPA in the subject at UCR. In organic chemistry I have a cumulative GPA of 3.5.

Precalculus

I had completed Calculus AB in high school and received a 5 on my AP exam. At UCR I had received an A in Math 9B and Ordinary Differential Equations, both classes that involved the manipulation and application of integrals and derivatives of various types of functions.

SAT Math

I scored 800 on my math SAT 2 subject test. I feel competent to teach students the difficult subjects observed on the test and how to solve some of these problems through intuition and calculator techniques.

Great tutor! — My son really likes Usman. He learns a lot from him and is tending to get better at math. I would like to have him be tutored by him for the rest of the year. ...
