The University of Texas- Austin (Master's)
I am a recent Master's graduate from the University of Texas majoring in Human Movement Science/Biomechanics. My bachelor's degree is in Industrial Engineering with a minor in Biomedical Engineering from Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, GA. Currently, I am pursuing my second Master's degree in Orthotics/Prosthetics at Northwestern University. I have more than two years of tutoring experience at all levels of education systems (elementary, middle, high school, college, and etc).
I am comfortable tutoring high school math including pre algebra, algebra 1, geometry, algebra 2, trigonometry, and in the advance level pre calculus, calculus, and statistics. At the college level, I am able to teach through the calculus level including college algebra, calculus 1, and calculus 2.
However, I'm definitely not limited to math. I enjoy teaching math-related topics, such as physics, as well as non math-related ones including chemistry.
To my opinion, every student has a unique way of learning and I find it rewarding to find that way by engaging the student in the process of learning. My job is to spend as much time as necessary with the student to discover his/her strengths, weaknesses, goals, and help the student overcome challenges in learning science.

My son (Georgia Tech student) is being tutored by Samira in Calculus for the last three weeks. I personally met Samira prior to engaging her as a tutor for my son. Samira knows her subject matter, very patient, and structures the sessions in a very logical and thoughtful manner. She provides feedback after each session and assigns homework (lots of it at my request). I selected her after interviewing several tutors from WyzAnt and I am very happy that I found her. We intend to have Samira tutor my son all throughout his engineering study at GA Tech, particularly Calculus and other math courses that is in the engineering curriculum.
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.
