Education is my passion. I naturally love to learn, challenge myself, and help others do the same. I earned a B.A. in Psychology then began teaching Middle School English. You would think this career choice and degree were unrelated, but it's actually all that kept the middle schoolers from driving me crazy!

Education is my passion. I naturally love to learn, challenge myself, and help others do the same. I earned a B.A. in Psychology then began teaching Middle School English. You would think this career choice and degree were unrelated, but it's actually all that kept the middle schoolers from driving me crazy! While teaching, I earned a B.S. in the Biological Sciences and earned a biotechnology certificate afterwards.

During this period, I also kept up a healthy volunteer pastime teaching a weekly Arabic class at NOVA Southeastern University through a student association. I taught the class every Friday for over six years. For me the prospect of education and educating far outweigh the Friday night party potential. You may assume me a nerd if that tickles your fancy. I will not object.

For fun I learn. Terse, I know, but that encompasses much. For example, I've taught myself two languages. When conversing, native speakers consider me a native as well before I inform them otherwise. Vanity is not my aim, but I do hope to inspire. There isn't anything that anyone can't do if they put their mind and elbow grease into it.

I'm a student by nature and an instructor by talent. Students often remark that I make complex subjects simple—the truth is that the subjects were always simple to begin with. I hope you plan a session and see how simple your subject actually is too.

To follow are some of my policies:

My cancellation notice is just 5 hours in advance of the scheduled session. This allows me enough time to schedule another student in your place should you need to cancel. If you must cancel within 5 hours of the start of the session, the cancellation fee will be half of the scheduled time. I also have a one hour minimum session time.

My driving radius is 12 miles. If you live more than 12 miles away, I add 30 minutes on top of the session time to cover driving time, gas, tolls, etc. We can also meet at a location in between to avoid the driving fee.

Thank you, and I look forward to helping you excel!

Drawing,

Drawing

I am an art instructor and have showcased my work in 3 art exhibits. I have also worked as a storyboard artist and Flash animator. My teaching methods focus on art basics like simple shapes, perspective, and the effect of light on these shapes that will really help kick start your art and help you see the world as an artist does. Everyone can draw, and I'd love to help you realize that!
Painting

Painting

Painting is not that different from drawing. Once a student learns to draw and to express simple forms through "shading," they can easily use this knowledge to paint. Painting and drawing differ because of a student must learn how to express forms in the painting medium the prefer (acrylic, oil, watercolor, mixed media, etc). Painting is also unique because colors. I am an art instructor and have showcased my work in 3 art exhibits.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have taught various elementary school subjects one-on-one to students struggling with math, science, reading and writing. My experience instructing elementary school students as a tutor for many years helped refine my approach and tool set, and I have had great success. Poor grasp of fundamental concepts are often at the heart of poor performance in elementary school. For example, many of my students improved writing proficiency after being engaged to think clearly about a concept and then to apply this skill in original work.

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

If you're having trouble with math, it's likely that you're relying on memorizing procedures and rules. The only problem with that is as you memorize more and more material, you'll eventually come to a point where you'll have trouble distinguishing one formula from another and even when to apply them. To excel in math is to comprehend, and that's exactly what I help my students do. We build from the fundamentals and continue building. I'll equip you with what you need to better understand the language of mathematics. These skills you'll take with you to all of your future math classes, and you may even end up enjoying mathematics more than I do!
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

The principles required for mastery of both Algebra 1 and Algebra 2 are identical. The expression of these principles, however, is a little different. The hurdles people usually confront with Algebra 2 come mainly from their relying on memorizing procedures and rules.

Chemistry is amazing! It's also not difficult at all when you understand the main, underlying principles that guide chemistry problem solving. I'll give you examples to make chemistry more coherent, relevant and less abstract. If you are willing to work hard, what seemed to be a foreign language will become a healthy second language! Please note that I currently only teach high school chemistry.

Hindi

I grew up speaking Urdu and Hindi. If you would like to learn how to speak either, I can be of service. If you would like to learn how to read and write, then that I can only offer for Urdu. Urdu and Hindi are very closely related, and in colloquial speech there is not much distinction. However, the written characters for Hindi are based on Sanskrit while those of Urdu are based on Arabic.

Great tutor

This was an excellent first lesson, Omair is very professional as well as inspirational, my son really loved the way he taught him in the subject of Writing. We are looking forward to continue working with him in this matter and also in Algebra 1.

Yenisel, 11 lessons with Omair

Great Tutor!

Omair has a very calm and gentle way of talking with my kids and teaching them math. He's an excellent tutor who really loves to teach math in a unique way. He is constantly showing my kids how math is all around them even in the most unlikely places. His technique is opening their minds to genuinely understanding the concept of math.

Amanda , 17 lessons with Omair

Highly recommended.

Omair really helped my daughter to understand the concept of the class. He really knows his subject and how to put it into simple vocabulary. My daughter (15) felt miserable and had an urge to give up in her class. After just one session, she feels confident that she can actually learn this stuff. We are very excited to continue working together. Thank you.

Camilla, 5 lessons with Omair

Excellent and knowledgeable

Very pleased and happy we met Omair . It's only a first lesson with him but my SAT child is motivated, understands a lot more , because Omair explained first,, put the problem on paper, wrote down all the things my son needs to remamber so when he's home practicing , has where to go back review it. Also he suggested to time him self on every problem since at testing timing is very minimum . We scheduled him for tomorrow again Can't wait

Mirjana, 9 lessons with Omair

An amazing experience for my son

Omair has been a God sent and in only two lessons our son has grown a deep respect and admiration for his tutor! After each lesson he can't wait to share what he learned with us and can't wait for his next sesssion with his mentor, Omair. Our son has always been a responsible student at school and has attained excellent grades in all subjects. As he began Algebra 1 he continuously hit roadblocks, frustration and no matter how hard he tried he couldn't seem to do well on assignments, quizzes and unit tests. I was heatitant in using this app at first and carefully read about a lot of tutors until I stumbled upon Omair. It was something about how he communicated his vision about math and his extensive qualifications that immediately made me contact him. It has been a remarkable experience thus far and to see my son with that sparkle in his eye and eagerness to prove to himself and Algebra teacher that he is capable of success in this subject is all I could ask for as a parent! Thank you Omair and thank you WyzAnt for making this possible to have this very special young man come into our home and share his knowledge, patience and passion for mathematics!

Journey into Language of Math

Today was our first session with Omair. Our initial contact was great, he was thorough in his expectations and very willing to accommodate to our schedule especially since our situation required to begin right away. Omair was courteous, professional and prompt. My daughter was very at ease and was extremely grateful for his PATIENCE. Omair introduced her to the concept as viewing Math as a language and this allowed her to understand why she is doing the skills she is doing. My daughter was relieved and understood the concepts. She is eager to continue with her sessions and I am feeling major relief as well. Thank you Omair!

Light switch went on!

It was my daughter's first lesson in AP Chemistry with Omair and she told me that when the session was finished, something happened. It all of a sudden made sense. She was relieved and so thankful for his help and so were we! Omair is professional and patient. He also has a way of making a difficult subject easier to understand. He was extremely well prepared. Very thankful to have found him!
