Hello Everybody,

My name is Musa, I am a pharmacist by education & a scientist by occupation. I currently work at Takeda (formerly Shire) Pharmaceuticals as a Senior Manufacturing Scientist specialized in IgG fractionation and purification. I also oversee the Cinryze manufacturing activities. I also teach the Foreign Pharmacy Graduate Equivalency Examination (FPGEE) exam at University of Southern California (USC) School of Pharmacy.

I have been working as a private tutor for nearly a decade, specializing in FPGEE, Biology (Honor, AP, collage level) , Molecular biology, Chemistry (Honor, AP, collage level), Organic Chemistry, Pharmacology/ Pharmacotherapy, Toxicology/ Forensics, and Arabic at both the high school and collegiate levels. Over the years I've developed an in-depth understanding of all the subject matter I deal in, and do my best to pass on this knowledge to my students. I realize there is a lot to memorize in the subjects I teach, but with a complete knowledge of a few basic principles I can make your studies substantially easier to organize.

Once I teach you the fundamentals of biology or chemistry or whichever subject you need help in, I will constantly refer back to them throughout our lessons, ensuring that you don't just memorize whatever your current plan is, but actually retain the material. I want you to understand why the subject matter is the way it is so that you don't simply forget it once our lesson is over. With the right tutor, these seemingly impossible-to-learn subjects can be broken down into easy-to-understand concepts, and your studies will be much more organized.

I have a very flexible schedule, and I prefer to meet in a public place such as a library or a coffee shop. Message me and let me know what your needs are and when/ where you would like to meet. With my many years of tutoring experience at several different levels and my in-depth understanding of everything having to do with biology/ chemistry/ or Arabic, I'm the perfect tutor for all of these needs.

Subjects

Homeschool

Biology,

Biology

As a pharmacist, I took many classes covering most of the Biology field, including but not limited to general biology (the cell, respiration, mitosis/ meiosis, physiology, photosynthesis, evolution, etc.) I mastered Biochemistry as well as Molecular Biology. I use this knowledge every day in my current position, ensuring I never forget it. I've tutored AP Biology, Collegiate Biology, as well as MCAT.
Chemistry

Chemistry

As a pharmacist, I have taken General Chemistry, Nuclear Chemistry, and Physical/Medicinal Chemistry. I'm an expert in all types of reactions and formulas (stoichiometry), stereochemistry, and many other topics. At Shire Pharmaceuticals, we use many of these chemical concepts (pH adjustments, alcohol/ temperature adjustments, precipitations, etc.) to purify our proteins of interest.

Language

Arabic

Arabic

I lived for almost 26 years in Jordan, so Arabic is my first language. In addition to that, I used to teach Arabic for Foreigners in my country at all levels for reading, listening, speaking and writing. I also taught advanced Arabic I and Advanced writing for Arab students.

As a pharmacist, I have taken all related organic chemistry classes. I'm an expert in all types of reactions and formulas (stoichiometry), stereochemistry, and many other topics. At Shire Pharmaceuticals, we use many of these chemical concepts (pH adjustments, alcohol/ temperature adjustments, precipitations, etc.) to purify our proteins of interest. I've specialized in carbon chains, structural isomers, functional groups and their relative reactions (SN1, SN2, E1and E2) in addition to many other topics.
Pharmacology

Pharmacology

I have a degree in Pharmacy from the University of Jordan, and have expertise in Pharmacology and Pharmacotherapy. I passed the FPGEE (Foreign Pharmacy graduated equivalency examination) from (NABP) National association of Boards of Pharmacy in 2012. I've been a tutor for almost 4 years in the subject matter related to Pharmacology/ Pharmacotherapy/ Biopharmaceuticals/ Immunology/ Medicinal Chemistry/ Instrumental Pharmacy/ Physical Chemistry.

Knowledgeable and patient

Refreshed my memory on reaction mechanisms (SN1/SN2/E1/E2). Also, we covered structural properties of Alcohols and naming of Alcohols. Musa is a great tutor and and an excellent explainer. He takes his time to describe concepts and provides the WHY to these concepts.

Great tutor for organic chemistry!

Very helpful and patient with my daughter when she needed assistance with understanding concepts in organic chemistry. Very flexible with time and location, and we will definitely contact Musa again when my daughter needs additional help. Thank you, Musa!

Richard, 1 lesson with Musa

Great teacher, really explains things in a way I can understand

Very happy with Musa, he's very flexible and teaches me in a way I understand. This is only our third lesson so I still have a long way to go with fully understanding toxicology but I feel confident with Musa's help I'll be a pro soon enough.

Musa helps give clear perspectives

Musa tutored me in Chemistry and is now helping me with Physiology. He gives tools and ways of organizing material that allow me to better understand my professor and course material. It makes going to class much more beneficial because I already have a base understanding that then solidifies and cements. He is a great awesome resource!

Very great

Musa A. helped me a lot and highly recommend. He explained genes and all things that was hard to understand under this topic. Thank you.

Badr, 1 lesson with Musa

Very knowledgeable and friendly

Musa has received many great reviews and after my first lesson with him I can see why. He is very knowledgeable and he is great at explaining concepts. Don’t be intimidated by the fact that he is an educated scientist, because he is very down to earth and explains ideas in very understandable ways. It’s obvious that he loves to teach and share his knowledge.

Superb Chemistry Tutor

Musa is currently helping my son with high school chemistry. After the very first session, my son demonstrated a major improvement on an assessment. I have never seen any tutor achieve such fast results. Musa is passionate about his subject and breaks down the concepts in clear, succinct ways. He makes what seems like complicated material, including applied math, simple and straightforward. We are thrilled!

Timely, knowledgeable & supportive

We hired Musa to help our son with Chemistry. He was great at making our son feel comfortable. He was great at testing his base knowledge and challenging him. He built a lot of confidence.
