About Ahmed

Hello, my name is Ahmed Saleem, and I am a Civil Engineering major currently attending college. I have been tutoring professionally for the last three to four years. Whether it has been charge or no charge, my main subjects of expertise are Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry, Pre-Calculus and even to higher level Calculus and Statistics. Occasionally, if it's the case, I even teach Physics (mostly just Mechanics for now), as it is very math-oriented. Aside from in-person tutoring, I have also created a valuable outside resource for my students; I have recently launched my own YouTube channel, where I go over proofs, concepts and examples of various math topics. I have been active for about 3 months by now and have posted 15 math videos with several more to come. I plan to move on to Physics as well soon. That's my tutoring history, now on to my academic history.

Out of all my years of taking math courses, never have I gotten under an A, probably only 1 or 2 occasions of Bs but that's it. Not only that, all my tests usually result in the high 90%s. When I took the SAT my Junior year and Senior year, twice I've gotten above 700 in the math section. My junior year when I took AP Statistics, I've scored a 4 on the AP Test and in my senior year, I took the AP Calculus AB Test and AP Physics C test and scored a 5 and 4 respectively. To top it all off in my senior year I participated in the math competition (which tested our mind for "out-of the box" higher-level abstract thinking of math combining probability, algebra, geometry, trigonometry, and even basic statistics) that was part of the annual SoCal MIST program held at UCI and topped 1st place (there were 30-40 contestants). I have many other minor achievements in mathematics and I could go on, but I feel I have explained myself considerably enough. All this talent, along with hard work has given me the wise desire to share and spread the knowledge.

When tutoring, my approach is simple. I first ask the student to see where they're struggling, then ask them to try the part they're struggling out (so I can see how they're mistaking), and then I pinpoint out what they did wrong, correct it for them and advise them to practice doing the correct method with a fair amount of repetitions. I am never harsh, degrading nor rude and am always patient, understanding and willing to see through their mind; my philosophy is "read and react", not the traditional "teach and expect".

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 1

I have taken Algebra in 8th grade and passed both semesters with an A. On top of that, I've helped classmates during and passed Algebra who have needed helped with the course. In high school, I've also informally tutored classmates, friends and even my little brother at times when they took Algebra 1.

Algebra 2

I have taken Algebra 2 my sophomore year and passed the class with an A. Although my tutor activity wasn't a lot for this course, I feel I am still eligible to tutor the course anyway as I have tutored courses above it such as Calculus. Calculus accumulates and builds upon Algebra 2.

Probability

I have never taken a probability course by itself, but I have taken AP Statistics in my junior year, Algebra 2 in my sophomore year and am currently taking Statistics in my first fall semester of college. All three courses cover a fair amount of probability. I've passed the first two courses with an A, along with getting a 4 on the AP Statistics test. All in all, my hard work and curiosity in these subjects has indirectly expanded my knowledge of probability, and I feel I am credible to teach it.

SAT Math

I have taken the SAT twice, once in my junior year and once in my senior year. Both times I have attained a score of above 700 out of 800 in the Math Section. Since the SAT covers basic Algebra 1, 2, Geometry and even some probability using logic, I feel I am credible to teach it. Not to mention all my years of Algebra 1, 2 and geometry I have acquired As.
