About Rafique

I am a graduate student in computer science who has a passion for math, science, engineering, and teaching. I think the best way to learn is through teaching.

I have two years of tutoring experience from helping high school students with their homework assignments through an outreach program offered by my University. I also have led study groups in courses such as General Biology, Circuits, and Java in my undergrad. My tutoring style is to focus on understanding concepts intuitively, learning by solving problems, and being systematic in solving problems.

I have a broad background and have excelled in numerous math, engineering, and science courses. In Math, I have taken calculus, linear algebra, and finite elements. I have done well in courses such as general biology, statistics, mechanics, and data-structures/algorithms. I have a passion for Science and given my background in Engineering, I try my best to constantly learn and understand scientific concepts in detail.

I would love to help you excel in your studies. Please contact me to see my availability and price. We can setup an initial consultation session free of charge to see if my tutoring style matches what you're looking for.

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.

C

In my Data structures and Algorithm course, I have to use C language in many of my assignments; in particular I used pointers to create many types of data structures such as linked lists, queues, and doubly linked lists. Currently, I am enrolled as a graduate student in Computer Science; where I will have to use C in many of my assignments.

Computer Science

I am a first year graduate student in CS. I have taken and done really well in the following courses in my undergraduate: Introduction to MATLAB programming, Introduction to Object Oriented Programming, and Data-structures and Algorithm. Currently, I am taking the following courses: Software Development and Computer Vision. I have close to 5 years experience in programming and explaining code to my classmates, colleagues, and supervisors.

Differential Equations

I have taken a Differential Equation course in College and DFQs are prevalent in Engineering. Therefore, I have had a great deal of experience in solving DFQs, both using traditional mathematics and Fourier/Laplace mathematics. I have led study groups in my Circuits and Signals courses which required a lot of DFQ mathematics.

Electrical Engineering

I am qualified to tutor in this subject because I have a Bachelors of Science degree in Biomedical Engineering that has required me to take many Electrical Engineering courses such as Circuits, Signals and Systems, Fourier Math, and Discrete math. I have led study groups in my undergrad in Circuits and Signals and Systems courses. Currently, I am a graduate student in Computer Science and there are many overlaps between ECE and CS.

Finite Math

I took a Finite Element Analysis graduate course the senior year of my undergraduate. I received an A in this course and the instructor can speak highly of me in my participation in the course. In my research experience, I have had to use Finite Element software/math for building models of the cornea and lamina cribrosa. I know how to use FE softwares such as FEBio and Abaqus.

Genetics

I took a Genetics course in my undergrad, which I received an A on. I was offered to TA this course but did not take the offer due to scheduling conflicts. I was always able to explain difficult concepts to my friends who needed some extra help on certain concepts.

Hindi

My mom is from India and therefore I have picked up learning to speak Hindi. I can communicate well with Hindi speakers at an intermediate level. I can speak 3 other languages and have a passion for learning languages. I promote a fun and interactive way to learn a language through real life one-on-one practice.

Linear Algebra

I have taken a Linear Algebra course in College (received an A-) and have had to use many Linear Algebra concepts in many of my Engineering courses, such as Fourier Math, Finite Element Analysis, and Computer Vision. I am currently enrolled in Computer Vision and therefore am using Linear Algebra extensively in my assignments. Moreover, in my research experience, I have had to use a lot of Matlab and Image processing that has required me to use Linear Algebra. I would like to add, this is one of my favorite Math topics.

MATLAB

I have been using MATLAB to code for close to 5 years. I have had to extensively use it in my research work and throughout my undergraduate engineering courses. I have had to explain my MATLAB code/programming to various audiences; my fellow classmates, my Principal Investigator, and Colleagues.

Mechanical Engineering

As a Biomedical Engineer who has worked in research involving studying the bio-mechanics of soft tissue such as the cornea and lamina cribrosa; I have had to use many mechanical engineering concepts in my work. I have taken Statics, Dynamics, and Finite Element courses. I can explain basic statics in an intuitive and clear way using real life examples.

Political Science

I did a minor in International Relations in my undergraduate. I took the following courses: Introduction to International Relations , Contemporary Politics, Game Theory, and Advanced International Relations. I received an A or A- on all my courses. I also excelled in High School history courses; passed my AP American History exam, and got close to 100% on all my regents exam.

Python

I am a graduate student in Computer Science and have had to extensively use Python in my courses, specifically mathematical packages in Python such as scipy, numpy, and OpenCV. I have also used Python extensively in my web development courses. Plus, it is one of my favorite computer languages.

Social Studies

I did a minor in International Relations in my undergraduate. I took the following courses: Introduction to International Relations , Contemporary Politics, Game Theory, and Advanced International Relations. I received an A or A- on all my courses. I also excelled in High School history courses; passed my AP American History exam, and got close to 100% on all my history based regents exam.

Very detailed, thorough approach. Intuitive teaching style.

Rafique is very personable in his approach. He was able to quickly identify my son's strengths and areas needing improvement. Rafique recognized the disconnect, and immediately simplified the problems so my son could clearly understand. Without question, I anticipate improvement in his grades exponentially.
