Regarding my educational level, I have a Master's degree in Physics from Western Michigan University, and now I am working toward earning my PhD in theoretical subatomic physics. Focusing on the theoretical branch of physics requires vast amount of mathematical knowledge or what we are used to call; mathematical tools.

I have a long experience conducting various physics labs. I also worked as a tutor in the Physics Help Room. My first tutoring experience ever was in free tutoring some relatives, friends and neighbors. I was glad to do that. Gradually developing a reputation as expected, later on I branched out.

Because of the large amount of information students receive in a short period of time, it is hard for students to create a genuine understanding and/or strategies to tackle new problems. That is why it is not unusual for students to seek extra help from a private tutor. My first aim as a tutor is to help the student to discern the line of reasoning behind all these information, and to see the mental building he/she is expected to see and to inhabitant. At this point, the student naturally will have the root confidence in answering any question and solving any problem, in principle. What is left is just a matter of exercising and practicing so the student moves up to the stem confidence.

From a practical point of view, my approach varies depending on the student’s needs. I start from topics the student is comfortable with and gradually move towards more complex areas.

Hopefully, I will be able to meet the exact needs of my student and build a close relationship based on mutual trust and respect. I am a highly qualified math and physics tutor. I love learning, and absolutely love to teach what I learn.

Subjects

Homeschool

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

Algebra 1 provides many helpful tools for finding solutions to everyday problems. I believe it is a key fundamental subject in the study of mathematics and other branches of science.
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

Algebra 2 provides many helpful tools for finding solutions to everyday problems. I believe it is a key fundamental subject in the study of mathematics and other branches of science.
Calculus,

Calculus

Calculus was originally invented as a way of solving physics problems. I will be glad helping students master the concepts and formulas of calculus. I have tutored calculus at the high school and college levels.
Geometry,

Geometry

Geometry is a visual type of math and some students are visual and feel comfortable with geometry while others are numeric and feel more comfortable with algebra. I try to bridge the gap between Algebra and Geometry and combine the two. It is not going to be that hard if you have the right teacher.
Physics,

Physics

Physics includes many topics like mechanics, electricity & magnetism, thermodynamics, and many other topics in modern physics. I have a master degree in physics from WMU. I have experience teaching physics at high school and college levels.
Prealgebra,

Prealgebra

If a student truly understands and masters Pre-Algebra, then all future math classes such as Algebra 1 and Algebra 2 will be much easier to conquer. Mastering the concept of negative numbers, variables, and expressions are central to learning how to solve equations in Algebra 1 and 2. The skills that are taught in Pre-Algebra build the foundation of the Math skills needed to do well in the future Math classes. I love Algebra and I enjoy teaching it.

Knowledgeable tutor

My son was able to understand some concepts in algebra 2 Which he had some difficulties with. Ali was patient and took the time to explain things well in a good place too

Maged, 2 lessons with Ali

Great tutor!

We went over calculus problems dealing with definite and indefinite integrals. Ali did a great job tutoring and was a friendly and patient person to work with. Thanks, Ali!

Casey, 1 lesson with Ali

Ali is a very patient and knowledgeable tutor

Ali. D has been tutoring my son in Physics and is patient and provides challenging examples and ensures that my son is engaging in the session. Would recommend this tutor.

Ali is an amazing tutor. Ali tutoring style allowed me to understand complex calculus concepts and really learn the material. Ali knowledge, clear communication, and patience is the perfect mix for a tutor. Thank you, Ali.

Deborah, 3 lessons with Ali

Awesome tutor

Ali did a great job explaining how to solve the problems in an easier perspective with great detail! Much more confident with what I knew before compared to what I know now. Would like to be tutored with him again! Thanks!

Ehtsham, 2 lessons with Ali

Knowledgeable, patient and reliable tutor

Ali is tutoring my son in Algebra 1. My son's grade went from a C+ to an A+ in a month. My husband and I will definitely recommend Ali to anyone who is looking for someone who is knowledgeable, professional and reliable to tutor their kid.

Nancy , 6 lessons with Ali

Ali was really helpful and explained the problems and how to solve them

Ali was able to show me how to solve the solutions in a clear way. He was also kind enough to scan the scratch work so I can review it on my own. I will reach out to Ali again when I need Calculus help!

Rahul, 1 lesson with Ali
