About Shakir

I'm currently a college student aspiring to be a pharmacist. I first began tutoring by volunteering for the National Honor Society in my school my junior year, and have been tutoring ever since.

In high school, I took many AP classes as well as college course classes. I had a 4.0+ GPA, and was a member of my school's top 20.

I help students by ensuring they understand concepts rather than complicated algorithms they don't truly understand. I plan lessons based on what topics are needed help with. During the session, I make sure the student learns the concept fully by testing him or her with different problems or applications.

I currently tutor Math, Science, and English. For math, I currently teach up to Algebra 2. I can tutor biology, chemistry, and anatomy for science. Finally, for English, I specialize in helping students to think and write critically.

I am generally available from about 10 A.M. to 10 P.M, but require a notice in advance to clear any potential commitments. I may have college classes, have to study, or complete other errands, so an advance is much appreciated.

In high school, I took all honors math courses other than Algebra 1. I took Honors Geometry, Honors Pre-Calculus, and AP Calculus. I was also part of my school's math league.

When I started high school, I knew I wanted to go into the science field. I had a special interest in medical science. I ended up taking two medical science classes as well as one anatomy class. I also took Honors Biology, Honors Chemistry, and AP Biology, so I am well versed in those subjects as well. I consistently had A's in all of these classes so I believe I'm well versed enough to teach everyone up to the high school level.

English was always one of my specialties. I took honors classes throughout my high school career including a college level comp class as well as AP English. I consistently received A's in these classes as well. I'm currently taking an Honors Writing course in college. On the SAT, my specialty was always writing, particularly the essay.

Please contact me if you have any questions about any of the subjects I have listed. I look forward to helping you understand your subjects better.

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.

Algebra 1

I tutored students Algebra 1 and 2 at my high school for volunteering, and students from other schools for compensation during my high school career. I have finished Calculus AB, so Algebra is pretty straightforward to me.

Algebra 2

I took pre-calculus and calculus which utilize algebra in nearly every operation so I've grown to be quite adept at it. I've also tutored algebra 2 before for volunteering.

American History

I took 3 years of history and 1 year of government in high school. I took Honors US 1, as well as AP History, and did well in both classes.

Anatomy

In high school, almost all of my electives were science. I took 2 Medical Science courses and one course of anatomy. These courses are closely related. I consistently performed well in all of these classes.

English

I've taken advanced English classes throughout my life. I received college credit for composition 1 and 2 in high school, and scored well on the AP exam.

Reading

I took honors English courses as well as AP English during my high school years. English has always been one of my specialties.

Writing

I completed Composition and Writing 1 and 2 in my junior year of high school, and received college credit for it. I also received college credit for performing well on the AP English exam. Writing has always been one of my strengths when it comes to English and literature.
