Despite the fact that I can offer assistance in many subjects to students of all ages, my academic credentials and background which include two Master of Science degrees and several years of teaching experience at a college level make me more inclined to work with college and advanced high school students on science (mathematics, physics, chemistry, and biology) as well as standardized test preparation (ACT, SAT, GRE, GMAT, and MCAT) and academic competition exams. Also, I can work with students on one-to-one basis especially if personal attention or a boost in confidence is needed or in small groups. In either case, I try to create a friendly atmosphere that is conducive to learning. My belief is that students can have a more fulfilling and engaging tutorial experience when they feel that they receive personal attention not from a person they should fear but rather from a friend who is there to help.

The ultimate goal of seeking private tutoring by students is learning. Therefore, all activities during a tutorial session should revolve around this goal. In my first tutoring session with any student I try to assess his/her knowledge of the basic or key concepts of the subject matter so I can build on what he/she already knows and adjust my way of explaining material to match the need and learning style of the student. I then focus on building confidence by encouraging and motivating students to think for themselves and be active learners, and follow that by challenging students to unleash their potential to turn what might be their least favorite subject into their most favorite one.

One of my strong tutoring techniques is the extensive use of technology and visual aids like drawing pictures or illustrative diagrams to make a concept clearer. And to make the tutoring experience even more exciting and stimulating, I frequently ask the students to give an example that is similar to a one just discussed. Also, when solving a problem, I require them to justify their answer and explain how and why they think it makes sense. In addition to that and at the end of each tutoring session, I usually leave the student with a question or two that test their understanding of the main concepts covered in that particular session and prepare them for the next session.

I have helped many students achieve their academic goals and I will have the pleasure to help you too. If you have a question, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Best Calc Tutor Ever!!!

I’ve had many tutors throughout college and he’s the best one I’ve had. He always makes sure you’re understanding the topic you are working on. If you don’t understand something, he will try to explain it in a different way and is very patient. He makes calculus seem like a piece of cake. All my tests and quizzes have been A+’s since I started working with him.

MK, 5 lessons with Aladdin

Hands down best tutor you will ever find

Aladdin is the absolute best tutor I have ever had (and I have had many throughout my years in school). He is very patient and explains things in great detail until you fully understand. His motivation and willingness to help is far beyond what I have ever experienced with any other tutor. He wants you to succeed and you can tell by talking to him. For example, I needed him to explain topics to me as I had to present on them the next day and he stayed up all night reading and figuring out ways to help me and he ended up helping me just in time. I currently use him for my undergrad biochemistry class and when the class is done, I will continue to use him as an MCAT tutor. You will not find a more willing, smart, kind, or patient tutor anywhere else. I know this because I meet with him almost every day online and I bragged about him to my university, and now they want to use him as a tutor for other students.

He should be my teacher!

First of all, I was in a crunch for a quiz tomorrow and an exam in two weeks. I've been going to the school's academic support centers for tutoring, but the info just still wasn't "clicking". So after researching private tutors in my area, I found Wyzant and a former classmate/friend said use them, they're the best and she's doing great in the class (different section). Anyhoo, he responded after I posted a message that I was looking and was able to meet me within 30 minutes. Super knowledgeable, friendly and funny. Great combination and went through both my study guides with me (lot of questions) but was patient when I didn't understand something. Looking forward to working with him again soon for the remainder of the class. Thanks, Aladdin!

Candice, 1 lesson with Aladdin

Excellent Tutor!!!

Aladdin was an exceptional teacher! He explained everything in details. He took his time and even made sure I could use the calculator properly. I walked in feeling totally lost and left feeling I could pass chemistry.

Stacey, 1 lesson with Aladdin

Great Physics Tutor

Aladdin helped my 12th grader understand her physics lesson for a big test. The class follows the French curriculum but Aladdin had no problem understanding the French and conveying the lesson to my daughter in English. Great tutor! We will use him again for sure! Also very easy to work with him in terms of scheduling and communication.

Corinne, 2 lessons with Aladdin

Patient and knowledgeable tutor with a hint of funny.

I've been out of school for quite some time, however Aladdin made me feel very confident and comfortable tutoring me on math. I look forward to scheduling upcoming sessions with him.

Simone, 2 lessons with Aladdin

Nice tutor!

As a tutor he is very knowledgeable and also knows how to teach. My daughter is getting help with Calculus and for the couple sessions she met with him to review for the finals he helped her a great deal. She feels more confident.

Josie, 4 lessons with Aladdin

incredibly knowledgeable and patient

I decided to use Aladdin as a resource for my upcoming Calculus final and he was able to explain everything in a much different way than my professor. I also got to learn a very unique method that is rarely used in America. Overall great experience!

David, 28 lessons with Aladdin
