About Ali

Hello students!

My name is Ali and I am a Georgia resident who has lived here for more than 18 years. I attended elementary, middle, and high school in the Lawrenceville area. I also completed my Bachelors of Science degree in Biology at Emory University in Atlanta. I have been involved in academics for most of my life. I have held a strong interest in math and science since childhood. These interests and my extensive volunteering experience in hospitals and community "health fairs" have drawn me towards the field of medicine. I have taken the MCAT and now am currently applying to medical schools all around the country.

I love teaching/tutoring because it helps me strengthen my academics as I help others develop a strong foundation in theirs. I started tutoring in high school, when I was in Mu Alpha Theta, a math honors society. Through the group, I tutored many different students in my grade level and younger in Pre-Algebra, Algebra, Geometry, Pre-Calculus, and Algebra 2. From this experience, I learned that as I was tutoring others, my own math skills were improving. This prompted me to volunteer as a tutor at my local community center in Lilburn, GA where I have been for more than 7 years. There, I tutor many middle and high school students on subjects ranging from middle school math, science, social studies and language arts to high school and college physics, calculus, biology and chemistry. I have also helped students on preparation for taking the SAT and ACT.

In college, I took a wide range of different subjects and classes including Calculus, Calculus for Life Sciences, Statistics and Probability, Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, Physics, Psychology, Philosophy, Theater, Arabic, English, History, Ethics, and a very wide variety of Biology courses. I was a TA for a few classes in which I had performed well. These classes include Introductory Biology, Biology Lab, and Comparative Vertebrate Anatomy. I held sessions with the students once a week to help review material from that week and to go over any questions they had. I also held multiple special review sessions before midterms and final exams. I can tutor on a variety of math and science courses along with SAT and ACT. Now that I have taken the MCAT and done pretty well, I could help others with skills for that test as well.

Tutoring is a passion of mine. I strive to not only teach students the concepts and skills they need to perform well, but also to get them interested in the subject matter. I have recently gone through the schooling system myself and I know which strategies work, which concepts are a bit sticky, and what students ordinarily find difficulty in. I can tutor in mornings, afternoons, and evenings, and even weekends, whichever is comfortable for you. I can meet you wherever you feel comfortable: your home, a coffee shop, a book store, or a library. I am a native English speaker and a very patient and soft-spoken individual. I will take as much time as you need until you feel comfortable in the subject of your choice. If you are looking for a reliable and patient tutor for math and science subjects, please do not hesitate to contact me.

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.

Awesome Tutor!

Ali has been tutoring my son since early July. Ali comes prepared with lesson plans and ready to work. My son absolutely loves him and is exceeding in his advanced algebra courses. Recently my daughter was invited to participate in the DUKE tip courses and Ali was very gracious about adding her time onto the back of my son's lessons. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who needs any ass
