Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ACT Math

My background is in Engineering & enjoy problem solving.
I can help your student with numerous problem solving approaches, as necessary for him/her to thoroughly understand how to approach math problems.

Algebra 1

I earned both Bachelor's and Master's of Science degrees in Chemical Engineering from the Illinois Institute of Technology, Chicago. Engineering solutions require mastering fundamental Algebra and other advanced mathematics. In other applications, I have taught Algebra to high school and Adult students. I help students according to their level of understanding the subject and progress accordingly. Building confidence into my students has proved to be an effective strategy I use to ensure successful learning.

Arabic

I am fluent in the Arabic language (reading, writing & speaking). It's my second language next to English. Since 7 years old, I learned to read & write Arabic from weekend school that taught the Arabic language. I took more advanced Arabic courses (Arabic 1 & 2) at a community college. I have materials and other Arabic language resources so I can assist students with beginner's level Arabic and/ or advanced: reading & conversational. I have completed a number of Elementary Education Courses and I have tutoring experience for several age levels.

Chemical Engineering

I have earned a Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering from the Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago, Illinois. I have taken specialized Chemical Engineering courses in Process Control, Material & Energy Balances, Unit Operations I & II, Chemical Reaction Engineering, Process Design. My tutoring methods include, but are not limited to: Understanding the basic theory, organizing & setting up equations for problem solving (often through sketching diagrams for visualization) with use of various numerical techniques and or utilizing specialized math solvers (similar to MATLAB, COMSOL, Excel, etc. Currently, I am due to graduate in December 2015 with my Master's Degree in Food Process Engineering (a specialization in Chemical and Biological Engineering) from the Institute for Food Safety and Health, also belonging to the Illinois Institute of Technology. Specialized courses I take there include Food Analysis, Fundamentals of Food Science, Food Process Control, Advanced Food Process Control, Food Packaging, Food Microbiology & Food Microbiology Lab.

Chemistry

I have taken General Chemistry courses and advanced course in Physical Chemistry, Analytical Chem., Inorganic & Organic Chem., related applied courses in Food Microbiology, Food Analysis, etc.

Cooking

I learned to cook at a very young age, where I assisted my mother cooking for a large extended family. In addition, I am familiar with cooking from various cultures and often add my own touches to a variety of cuisines. I can quickly compliment meals with various side dishes. I am clean, organized, and plan out my meals ahead of time, preferably with the most fresh ingredients available. I have worked in family restaurant businesses for over 10 years. I can plan the simplest of meals all the way to planning for large events of 100+ people. I have taught hands-on cooking lessons in my home and elsewhere. I have taught simple cooking classes with simpler ingredients for children ages 8+. I have taken several Food Safety related courses and teach my student's the do's and dont's of cooking processes and proper food storage.

Precalculus

I have taken extensive math coursework: College level pre-calculus, Calculus I & II, Differential Equations and other complex math.
