About Mohamad

I have been studying the natural sciences in-depth (Physics, Biology, Mathematics, Chemistry) for approximately 6 years now. I have taught my peers in several mediums and topics. I started my career in high school, taking college classes (Statistics and Biology) while tutoring my peers after school in mathematics to get their grades up. I continued peer-tutoring for as long as I ran into the opportunity.

I began to TA (teacher's assistant) for Organic Chemistry and Biochemistry for approximately 300-400 students in separate classes/sections meanwhile I finished my research in enzyme kinetics in Lab and finish my senior project in Microbial Ecology. I have now graduated with my Bachelor's Degree in Biology (emphasis in Biochemistry) with Magna Cum Laude.

My specialties include organic chemistry I and II, biochemistry, biology, chemistry, geometry, trigonometry, precalculus, and calculus.

My knack and what makes me special as a tutor is my ability to find a plethora of unlimited resources for my students whether online or from material that I used myself when learning these topics (i.e. quizzes, tests, presentations,etc).

Perfection of practice and skill make students great and this is my aim as your ally in understanding the most difficult topics.

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

Arabic is my first language. I lived in the UAE (United Arab Emirates) for a year and went to primary school. I lived in Syria for a collective time of 3-4 years going to high school and summer school. I have been hired as a representative and official translator for Syrian and Arab refugees involving paperwork. Of the refugees I have worked with are my grandparents, who have just become citizens of the US.

Biology

I have been studying Biology along with Chemistry for approximately 6 years and have done much research pertaining to the field. One of my first projects was recreating the accidental discovery of penicillin and ever since then I have fueled my passion by applying to Medical School and polishing my application over time. I have my associates and my Bachelor's degree in Biology. I can help in college Biology (all levels and courses) and I can assist in all high school level Biology.

Chemistry

I was a TA (teaching assistant) for organic chemistry I and II and biochemistry for 1 year and I have done research into hormonal chemistry and fungal chemistry. Students I have helped and tutored range in age from middle school to adult.

Genetics

I have taken advanced genetics and genetics lab at University with specification on Bark Scorpion DNA. I loved genetics because it had such a strong emphasis on mathematics that there were times I forgot I was taking a biology class. I learned PCR in lecture and lab and learned about the many techniques (i.e. RT-PCR, DNA libraries, genomic studies, recombinant DNA, linked genes, etc).

MCAT

I have taken both Kaplan and Princeton intensive MCAT classes and achieved a 9 point score increase in my score after completion of both courses. I have tutored several students since then. I focus on biology, chemistry, physics, and psychology retention through "quicksheets", individualized lesson plans, and timed practice tests. I am familiar with old and new MCAT versions and I I emphasize greatly on preparation of the student psyche and attitude toward the test

Organic Chemistry

I have graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Biology and Biochemistry (Magna Cum Laude). I was a Teaching Assistant in Organic Chemistry for 1 year at my university, and I received favorable reviews from the students. I received the highest grade in both of my Organic Chemistry I and II courses. I also preformed independent research in Synthesis Reactions.

Study Skills

I graduated Magna Cum Laude from my University with my Bachelors in Biology with Biochemistry Emphasis. I graduated with a 3.8 GPA. I was a part of the Organic Chemistry Study sessions as the TA and devised many study exercises for students that were designed to become habit. For every class I ever taught or took I always made it a responsibility to form study groups and or a strict study calendar to follow.

Knowledgable and Very Helpful!

Mohamad helped me build a solid foundation in genetics! He was very effective at communicating what I needed to learn in a way I could understand. He also provided useful material for me to review outside our tutoring sessions. I would certainly recommend him.
