I'm Ammar! I will be graduating with a Bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering from UC San Diego in August 2018. During my time in college, I realized the reason why I loved Math and Engineering was because of how it was being taught to me. I understood from early on that a professor can make you love a subject through their teaching style. Whenever I asked for extra help outside of class, my professors would always encourage me to come to their office hours and be very courteous and engaging. When I was tutoring my friends in Calculus 1, I strived to adopt the same approach. I always try to go the extra mile whenever I tutor another student. By doing so, I want them to feel as comfortable as possible during the learning experience and truly benefit from every lesson.

What I always do is introduce the topic in a simple and creative way before directly diving into the material. I believe it is important to explain to a student why they are learning a topic. That way, they can enjoy learning the material knowing that there is a practical use behind it. I plan for some time at the end of the lesson to give examples so that they can get some practice with me before they practice on their own. This way, they have examples to refer back to in case they get stuck on any homework problems.

I tutored 40 math students for one year (two semesters) in private settings. They were a mix of college and high school students. I always directly helped those who needed help with problems. However, I also made the extra effort to help a smaller group (usually 3 - 5) who needed the most help. This way, no one would fall behind and feel lost. I held additional skype and video chat sessions outside of lessons in case they needed clarification or help on homework sets. I have tutored in these private settings for Calculus and Algebra.

I want my students to enjoy learning Math and benefit from me as much as possible. I always appreciate feedback and suggestions from students or parents. I am very easy to reach and provide fast responses. Feel free to contact me with any questions you have or to schedule a lesson!
