About Ihab

Math, Science and Engineering can be fascinating subjects, but they can be difficult to learn. As a private tutor with years of teaching experience, I work with students one-on-one, or on a small group of 2 to 3 to try to make these subjects fun to learn and help them develop their basic understanding. We work on the assignments and homework together. I try to develop short quizzes to help in confidence building.

With over 30+ years of University teaching experience, I have instructed students in subjects like Math, Chemistry, Calculus, Differential Equations, Mass and Energy balances, Fluid Mechanics, Heat Transfer, Thermodynamics and Kinetics. I created class materials, teaching plans and short quizzes for these classes. Whenever possible, I try to bring related fun material from the Internet.

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.

Chemical Engineering

I have been a Faculty member in the Chemical Engineering Dept at the University of New Hampshire, Durham, NH from Sept. 1976 until I took early retirement in May 2013, a total of 37 years. I started as Assistant Professor, then Associate Professor then Full Professor. I taught all core courses plus some elective courses, including computer simulation and Optimization. I received my Doctorate degree in Chemical Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (M.I.T.), Cambridge, MA. While at M.I.T. I taught Chemical Engineering Computer Simulation as an instructor for 3 years.

Differential Equations

I was a Chemical Engineering faculty member for 37 years at University of New Hampshire (UNH). Prior to that I was an instructor of Chemical Engineering at M.I.T. I taught differential equations classes as Applied Mathematics for Chemical Engineering.

Discrete Math

I have been a Faculty member in the College of Engineering and Physical Sciences, Chemical Engineering Dept at the University of New Hampshire, Durham, NH from Sept. 1976 until I took early retirement in May 2013, a total of 37 years. I started as Assistant Professor, then Associate Professor then Full Professor. Prior to that, I taught at M.I.T. for three years. I taught common courses that cover Discrete Math and worked with high school and freshmen students on discrete math and the interplay of discrete math and robotics.

DOS

I have been a Faculty member in the College of Engineering and Physical Sciences, Chemical Engineering Dept at the University of New Hampshire, Durham, NH from Sept. 1976 until I took early retirement in May 2013, a total of 37 years. I have used the Disk operating System (DOS) for over 30 years. I started using it on the IBM PC’s during the 80’s, as it was the standard operating system. I still remember the IBM PC XT! The DOS was also called, MS-DOS, because it was developed by Microsoft. I developed many batch files to execute a number of commands. I still use DOS extensively as it has a lower overhead on the computer resources.

Fortran

I was a Chemical Engineering faculty member for 37 years at University of New Hampshire (UNH) before taking early retirement in 2013. Prior to that I was an instructor of Chemical Engineering at M.I.T. I introduced taught classes in computer simulation using Fortran (Formula Translation) language, both at M.I.T. and at UNH.

Logic

I have been a Faculty member in the College of Engineering and Physical Sciences, Chemical Engineering Dept at the University of New Hampshire, Durham, NH from Sept. 1976 until I took early retirement in May 2013, a total of 37 years. I started as Assistant Professor, then Associate Professor then Full Professor. I taught common courses that cover logic math and worked with high school and middle school students on logic math.

Mechanical Engineering

I have been a Faculty member in the College of Engineering, Chemical Engineering Dept at the University of New Hampshire, Durham, NH from Sept. 1976 until I took early retirement in May 2013, a total of 37 years. I started as Assistant Professor, then Associate Professor then Full Professor. I taught common courses of mechanical and chemical engineering, like balances, fluid mechanics, heat transfer, thermodynamics, etc. I received my Doctorate degree in Chemical Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (M.I.T.), Cambridge, MA. While at M.I.T. I taught Computer Simulation for Engineering students as an instructor for 3 years.
