About Safia

I am a highly competent and accomplished engineer with twenty years of experience. I chose engineering as a career due to my love of math. Algebra, geometry, and general computer skills have been a fundamental part of my everyday life throughout my career. I am now looking for opportunities to share my knowledge with the newer generations coming through the ranks. I have five years of experience as an instructor at the university level, teaching students about engineering and orthopedics. I also have spent time tutoring friends and family members in math and computer skills.

My approach to tutoring involves breaking problems down into a set of simple standard steps that can be used over and over for many problems. Then the key is to practice, practice, practice, until the steps become second nature to the student. I am a very patient person and will work diligently with students until they have mastered the concepts.

I look forward to the opportunity to help you or your student. I can either meet online or in a public place such as a library for tutoring sessions.

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 have two degrees and over 20 years of experience in engineering, a math intensive field. Algebra is a fundamental subject for me that I use every day. I have tutored many friends, family members, and former classmates in it.

Algebra 2

Algebra 2, which is similar to Pre-calc, is a fundamental subject for me that I have been using throughout my career. It is second nature to me, and I have tutored many friends, family members, and former classmates in it.

General Computer

Computer skills are essential for all. I have significant experience using both Windows and Mac operating systems, as well as many of the Microsoft Office programs. They are all fairly intuitive to use, and I can easily help you learn them.

Geometry

Geometry is a fun subject. I use it regularly in my career to calculate forces on the human body. I know the subject well and have tutored many friends, family members, and former classmates in it.

Microsoft Excel

I have two degrees and over 20 years of experience in engineering. Excel is a fundamental tool that I have been using for decades to analyze complex scientific data, ranging from performing basic calculations to generating three dimensional graphs. I have tutored many friends, family members, and former classmates in it.

Very knowledgable

Safia started tutoring my son James in April, as he was struggling in Algebra. They met once a week for an hour at my library. I found Safia to be very knowledgeable on the subject matter and was very patient with my son. She was very flexible with our meeting times and was always willing to extend our session. In addition to reviewing his homework, Safia also went over past tests to explain where
