I have a Master's degree in Mathematics with Distinction from Oxford University and a Bachelor's Degree in Mathematics with Distinction from the University of Illinois at Chicago. I do math and physics tutoring, standardized test prep, and also have expertise in MATLAB, mathematical modeling, and data analysis. In addition, I am very passionate about coaching students who are preparing to take math competitions. I've been tutoring students in math for the past 27 years. I have tutored students with all levels and abilities. I have taught at the university level, the community college level, high school level, as well as elementary school level. Currently, I am teaching Honors Math and Physics courses at a high school in Lombard, IL. I generally tutor on the northside of Chicago and the west suburbs (Lombard, Villa Park, Elmhurst, and Naperville).
I tutor both in person and online. I believe that with the right technology, online tutoring can be an excellent and effective way to teach math. I have a writing tablet which allows students to see me write real time with clarity. I utilize an interactive whiteboard when necessary so that we can write and interact simultaneously. My online students find the experience to be quite beneficial and enjoy the ease of learning and getting their questions answered from the comfort of their home.
I have experience tutoring students in Pre-Algebra, Algebra I, Intermediate Algebra, Algebra 2, College Algebra, Geometry, Precalculus, Trigonometry, Calculus (Differential and Integral Calculus, Multivariable Calculus, and Advanced Placement - AP Calc AB and AP Calc BC), Linear Algebra, and Differential Equations. I am also experienced in tutoring students in Discrete Math, Finite Math, and Real Analysis. I have taught most of these classes professionally for many years, with an emphasis on teaching AP Calculus AB and BC.
In addition, I enjoy teaching elementary and middle school students and introducing them to the joy and wonder of mathemat
Junaid has provided examples of their subject expertise by answering 4 questions submitted by students on Wyzant’s Ask an Expert.
Fantastic and brilliant tutor
My daughter was struggling in AP Physics C (Mechanics) because she hadn't taken Calculus the year before like the majority of her classmates. We sought out Junaid's help based on his background in both Physics C and Calculus BC, and he turned out to be a great tutor for her. Junaid's background is quite impressive. Even more impressive is his ability to make complex material digestible to a high school senior -- he has a gift for teaching. His teaching style resonates with my daughter's learning needs -- he explains the concepts first, reviews the material, and then checks for understanding. She comes home from her tutoring sessions with a one-page summary of notes for reference. The proof that she understands the material is in her grades. Highly, highly recommend!Emily, 14 lessons with Junaid
EXCELLENT tutor! kind, helpful, and simplifies hard material!
Junaid is a fantastic tutor. I have worked with multiple Wyzant tutors and I think Junaid is the best. He simplifies hard material, spends as long as you need to learn, and is so kind! Highly recommend working with him!Francesca , 16 lessons with Junaid
Very patient and knowledgeable tutor!
He helped me understand a lot of fundamentals of MATLAB that I previously could not comprehend. He was also very patient in explaining how to look at code and what each line of code means and does overall. If I wasn't able grasp one explanation, he would find a different way to explain until it made sense. Before, MATLAB was very intimidating to me, but now coding in MATLAB has become fun and not so difficult for me because I am able to to understand it now!Dinesh, 8 lessons with Junaid
Very knowledgeable and patient tutor
Junaid tutored me for a few weeks to help me prep for the quant section of the GMAT (Algebra, Geometry, problem solving, data sufficiency). He is very knowledgeable as he was able to help me solve any question I showed him very quickly. He explains things really well and makes sure I understand not just the question, but the whole concept so I can better answer future questions myself. My quant score went up greatly on my last test attempt after I received lessons from him. He also seems to really enjoy math and makes it more enjoyable for me as well!Anju, 4 lessons with Junaid
Junaid is a wonderful tutor.
Junaid is a wonderful tutor. My 12th and 10th graders both find him very helpful with their math (AP Calc BC and Honors 10th grade) as well as physics for my older child.Lenore, 8 lessons with Junaid
Dr. M is an expert teacher. He quickly figured out where things were going wrong for our daughter in Algebra 2, and has given her strategies for getting back on track. This is a serious, professional tutor — not just homework supervision, and you won’t find him just giving the answers. We couldn’t be happier or more appreciative for his time. Recommend most highly.Stacy, 9 lessons with Junaid
Great Tutor - Above and Beyond My Expectations
Junaid is a true teacher. Not only does he know the subject matter (physics and math) but he has a way of imparting his knowledge and teaching you how to properly approach the problem. He is soft spoken but a highly effective communicator. Upon arriving he gets right to work and makes a lot of progress in a short amount of time. Highly recommended!Brian, 41 lessons with Junaid
As someone who has been away from Mathematics for almost 20 years I was intimidated by my grad school course(s). Junaid was not only able to break down the problems but also gave me a deeper understanding and an appreciation for the material. His love of math is contagious.John, 3 lessons with Junaid
Very Helpful MATLAB online tutoring
Junaid was very helpful in tutoring MATLAB for my daughter. He is very knowledgeable and ensured, my daughter understand the logic and the subject very well and get to the comfort level. I recommend Junaid for a quick and great start for any MATLAB related issues from simple to complex.Raghu, 3 lessons with Junaid
