About Syed

My name is Syed R. I have been a passionate learner of math, physics and other scientific fields for most of my life. While I was achieving excellent scores in all my classes in high school, I tutored several students with their Math and Science Regents after school to encourage them perform just like me at no cost. I still continue to help my brother with his education who is currently in Biomedical Engineering program.

I also participated in many Math competition when I was a member of Mathletes in high school. I passed my Math and Science regents with flying colors. I also had an opportunity to take AP Calculus, AP Physics, AP Biology, AP World History, AP US History, AP Government & Politics and AP Language & Composition in high school. I was a member of Math Honor Society in high school. I was even declared Student of the Month by Mathematics Department.

In college, I took Calculus, Differential Equations, Linear Algebra, One-Dimensional Dynamics, Numerical Analysis, Probability and Statistics for Mathematics minor. For Physics major, I received education in General Physics, Modern Physics, Theoretical Physics, Electric Circuits, Analytical Mechanics, Vector Mechanics, Electromagnetic Theory, Atomic Physics and Quantum Mechanics. I also took classes in General Biology, Chemistry and Computer Programming in college.

With the spirit of learning more in field of Mathematics and Physics, I decided to work in Weill Cornell Medical College as Research Assistant in field of Computational Neurosciences. I have published one scientific paper while I have another manuscript in progress. In addition, I have presented five additional posters in scientific conferences like Vision Science Society and Society of Neurosciences. I design experiments and test subjects for my study. I utilize Matlab and Microsoft Excel to analyze data from my subjects. I have produced my scientific posters on Adobe Illustrator.

I have advance knowledge in Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access, Outlook, Publisher, Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, and InDesign. I have great deal of professional understanding in many Computer Programming Languages like C++, Python, SQL, HTML, CSS, Javascript, Java, PHP, C# and Matlab.

In addition, I have experience in tutoring SAT and ACT exams. I have experience and knowledge to tutor for SAT Subject Exams like Math Level I, Math Level II, Physics, and Chemistry. I am also familiar with concepts that are included in College Level Examination Program or CLEP exam for subjects like Calculus, College Algebra, College Mathematics, Precalculus, Natural Sciences, and Chemistry.

Due to my work in the morning of weekdays, I am only available in evening during weekdays. However, I am available to tutor over the weekend for most hours. I can travel to students or meet them online. My base rate is $60/hour.

I look forward to hearing from you and providing you the help you need to achieve success in your studies!

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.
