About Shahrez

I am currently an undergrad at Monmouth University. I am part of the Monmouth - Drexel 8 year medical scholars program, which guarantees admission to the Drexel University College of Medicine so long as certain GPA requirements are maintained and a certain MCAT score is achieved. Admission to this program is very competitive: you basically need a great SAT score, high school GPA, and quality extracurricular and medical experiences.

In addition to excelling academically, I am also very skilled in explaining tough concepts to students, which is why I am a great tutor! My teaching experience at Monmouth includes being a supplemental instructor for General Physics with Calculus I and II as well as being a peer chemistry tutor. In order to qualify for both, one needs to not only excel in the classroom but also in explaining concepts to other students (professors recommend students for both jobs). My two preferred specialties are AP Chemistry and the SAT. I did great in AP Chemistry in high school and scored a 5 on the exam. Monmouth didn't accept my full credit due to the fact that I was a medical scholar, so I was still required to take general chemistry II. I aced the class anyway. The point is that I've taken a lot of chemistry continuously for many years, which is why I chose to specialize in it as a tutor.

I also did great on the SAT. My score was a 2300. I attended a very rigorous SAT prep institution called Yale Academy - now Y2 Academy. Because of this, I have a very good mastery of content and know all the tricks of the trade in approaching the test. I would have scored higher but neglected to drill the vocabulary words into my head before taking the test. Therefore, my score on the reading section was not up to par. However, vocabulary mastering is up to the student. I can help with the tough questions from the reading passages, which is where most students have the most trouble. In other words - Y2 Academy is $3000-$4000 to attend. If you want the same instruction at a lower price and less rigor, I'm your guy.

In addition to chemistry and SAT, I teach a variety of subjects, including English, algebra, SAT subject test tutoring. Contact me if you would like to see credentials in anything not specifically mentioned in my profile.

I'm not a qualified teacher. So, I come cheap. Honestly, the main strength behind hiring me is that I'm only a couple of years older than the students, speak their language, and I'm fresh out of the AP and college admission process so I can offer quality insight from the student perspective instead of the cookie-cutter perspective of an instructor. Additionally, I offer the perspective of a student who did well!

I charge $30 an hour for face-face sessions and $25 an hour for online sessions. However, PRICES ARE NEGOTIABLE. Contact me for more info!

Awesome Online Tutor

Excellent tutor. Well worth the money. Explains concepts quickly and efficiently. Makes very good use of time. Had an online lesson with him that went very well. Was very proficient at using WyZant's online tutoring features. If he didn't know something right away, he would sit for a minute and then figure it out. Always got the right answer. Needed him for a quiz I had on Monday and I got a 100 o
