I graduated from the University of Michigan - Ann Arbor majoring in Biochemistry, and completed my medical degree from the University of Toledo College of Medicine in May 2019 and am a current intern at Rush University Medical Center.

While in undergrad, I tutored fellow students in Algebra, Calculus, and Organic Chemistry. Over the last several years as a WyzAnt Tutor, I've helped many students achieve their goals in difficult subjects including AP chemistry/General Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, Biochemistry, Algebra 2/Pre-Calc/Calc 1, and ACT/SAT Math prep.

I am a very patient individual who prides myself on going that extra mile to help my students achieve their academic goals. The more initiative the student shows, the harder I can push them to reach these goals. I've seen it all, and can help you focus on what will most likely be tested in your course. After our lessons, I usually find worksheets for my students to complete to help reinforce the topics, because I believe half the battle of learning is repetition and immersion in the material. This is where the 10,000 hour rule comes into play. In addition, I subscribe to the "growth" mindset, in which I believe we can become masters of anything with hard work, but intelligent hard work.

In addition, since I've gone through the pre-med hurdle myself and have finished medical school, I can give personal guidance on what a student should focus on in order to get into their desired professional/graduate program.

I would love to help you to reach your academic goals. There's nothing like that light bulb going on in a student's head and seeing that "aha" expression when the material has finally been understood. And there's no better feeling than seeing your students gain the confidence to tackle their future academic and life challenges.

Subjects

Homeschool

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

Having the fundamentals down in Algebra will be crucially useful for a student down the line in any future Math, Chemistry, and Physics courses. Algebra, by itself, may come across as boring to a middle/high school student. However, if this subject can be applied to the real world, I believe the student will have a much easier time learning the material.
Algebra 2,

However, if this subject can be applied to the real world, I believe the student will have a much easier time learning the material.
Chemistry,

Chemistry

I took AP Chem in high school and received credit to pass out of the introductory sequence at Michigan. I went on to take a sophomore level Gen Chem course at U of M and received an A-, and I took an upper level Calculus based Physical Chemistry course and received an A+. General Chemistry itself is boring, but if the student sees its application to other topics, I believe that would kickstart the students desire to learn the topic which would better help them learn the material.
Precalculus,

Precalculus

Pre-Calc is the math course that ties everything together learned from Geometry, Algebra, and Trigonometry. It is crucial that a student gets a fundamental understanding in this area, as many of the material one sees in Pre-Calc, they will also see in Calculus. From my experience, most people have problems with the Geometry, Algebra, and Trig portions of Calculus, and not the actual Calculus concepts themselves.
SAT Math,

SAT Math

I never took the actual SAT exam in high school. However, I took both SAT I and SAT II Math sections and scored a 780 and 770 respectively. The SAT Math covers Geometry and Algebra, and with enough practice, any student can master it. I will help the student master the exam and give them the confidence and insight to ace this portion of the test.
Prealgebra

Math

ACT Math,

ACT Math

I took the ACT twice and scored in the 96 and 97% tiles on this section in those two examinations. I went on to take AP BC Calculus and AP Stats my senior year and received a 5 in both subjects. I then went on to minor in math at U of M - Ann Arbor. I have several workbooks for ACT math that would be greatly beneficial to any student trying to master this section.

Trigonometry,

Trigonometry

Students usually get exposed to Trig in Geometry through SoaCahToa. Then, they'll either get a full on exposure through Honors Algebra II, or their regular pre-calc class. Trig is almost as important as Algebra, because its a fundamental language of math. Many applications in Calculus and Physics use Trig because many things in life happen at angles. Trig is not a hard topic to understand if it's given enough practice, just like Algebra.

Organic Chemistry

Organic Chemistry

I have the most experience tutoring Organic Chemistry of all the sciences, as this was the subject I primarily tutored students in during undergrad. My subsequent courses in Biochemistry heavily built on this Organic Chemistry knowledge. Organic Chemistry can be very difficult if you take an approach to just brute memorize everything. However, the beauty of the subject is that if you learn the mechanisms of each reaction and how the electrons logically flow, it will make learning the reactions much easier (which a majority of people have the most problem with).

Very knowledgeable and patient tutor.

Seena helped me in Biochemistry. He went in details and made things live. He is really knowledgeable and never give up!

Walaa, 10 lessons with Seena

Excellent tutor and very knowledgeable

Seena teach me how to get ready for my final exam in general chemistry and he was very very helpful.

YASMEEN, 10 lessons with Seena

Very knowledgeable in chemistry and great teacher!

Seena helped me get an A in Gen. Chem. and was able to make many difficult concepts clear for me. Very flexible with scheduling, and was available right before exams!! He also gave great advice as to what to study for exams, and you can tell he is experienced at this. Would definitely recommend to anyone struggling with chemistry, or anyone who wants to secure a good grade!

Remarkable!

My son was on the brink of failing Algebra 2, and Seena literally rescued him. He was so kind and so patient and, most important, he made learning fun. My biggest fear was how to convince my son to sit for tutoring several days in a row. It wasn't even a struggle. My son truly connected with Seena and actually enjoyed his sessions. Seena was also incredible at follow-up. He would assign my son homework and send emails reminding us to get the work the done and encouraging my son to practice, practice, practice. Seena was also very polite and professional and always on time. He also extended himself by changing his schedule at the last minute to squeeze in an hour and half of tutoring on a Sunday to help my son study for a very important test. I wish I had found Seena earlier in the semester and I just can't speak highly enough of his skill and dedication to his students. Thank you, Seena!

Tutor responded:

Your kind words truly made my day Amy. I'm glad I was able to help, and I wish your son the best of luck in his future academic endeavors!

AWESOME!

My son had a college level calculus tutoring session with Seena. My son's first comment was "Wow he is so smart". He also commented "I wish that I had him as a teacher, I would definitely get an A". Seena explained things clearly and was great to work with, as well as very accommodating.

Great Tutor - Very Patient

I am not good with math and Seena made it seem easy even for me. He helped guide me through statistics with patience and kindness. He is a great tutor!

Christie, 1 lesson with Seena

Flexible and Concerned

Seena has been an excellent tutor for our son. He makes himself very readily available and communicates with us about his needs and abilities, expressing real concern. Results? From borderline failure to 34 of 35 questions correct on the last exam. I'll pay for that level of support.

Gregory, 52 lessons with Seena

Quality Tutor

Personable, professional highly qualified tutor. He is responsive, courteous and dedicated to helping kids improve. We threw a bit of a curve ball at him right before finals and he totally rose to the occasion. Even with a short time frame in which to help my son, a high school junior, we saw better test results using Seena than without him. We will continue to use him on an regular basis. Plus my son thinks he's cool.

Great tutor - explains complex material very well

I needed a tutor to help my son with a chem class and Seena turned out to be a great help. He was able to clarify and explain topics that had been covered very quickly in class so my son could get a better grasp on the basic concepts. He was so successful at the chem help that my son asked him to help with his math homework as well. He turned out to be just as proficient in math as he was in chem. He recently completed his undergrad, so it was helpful to have someone relatively close in age to a high school student that could relate to the difficulty of balancing school work with other extracurriculars. My son felt much more confident conquering both classes after having a few tutoring sessions with Seena. I highly recommend him to any parents of high school students! Paying for Seena's tutoring is a well-worth INVESTMENT in your student's future, and will bring returns of much greater value! Like the MasterCard commercial: "Priceless".
