Originally from Tanzania in East Africa, I spent my elementary, middle, and high school years at an International Baccalaureate (IB) school, taking my advanced courses in mathematics, physics, and chemistry. I graduated second of my class and got accepted into the engineering school at Columbia University. There I studied civil engineering, taking more classes in physics and mathematics. I also took a few finance and business courses on the side for technical electives. I graduated from the school of engineering in the summer of 2014.

I have tutored since middle school, helping out the other students in my grade. I continued tutoring students during recess and after school, often helping out students in my own classes. When I moved to New York, I joined a tutoring group, which helped out young children in the neighborhood of Inwood in upper Manhattan. There I worked with elementary students and pre-K children and learned the necessary skills associated with working with young children.

I love tutoring and love seeing students learn new topics and grasp concepts. I am very devoted to my work, and really want to make sure students understand the core concepts of what they're learning, rather than just being able to plug and chug numbers. My goal is to make students interested in what they're learning and give them the skills and tools they need to succeed.
Please feel free to contact me for any tutoring needs. Although I have areas that I am personally stronger in (the natural sciences), I am more than willing to help students learn whatever they need. I am adept at grasping new concepts very fast, so even if I have not seen the material before in my academic life, a few days of preparation will be all I need to help students excel in that area. In short, all ages and all topics are welcome.

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

I have tutored students on the fundamental concepts within algebra, including the idea of a function and what exactly a function is. I feel that it is very important that students should understand what exactly the fundamentals of mathematics are saying. Simply saying that y = x draws a diagonal line across the paper does not tell the student what that line means, and what x and y represent. I believe it is vital for students to have a strong foundation to build upon.
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

Algebra 2 delves deeper into the important concepts of functions and expressions. In middle and high school I saw several students fail to grasp the important concepts presented by algebra 2 such as quadratic equations, sequences and series, and probability because the teacher merely chugged out numbers rather than explain what those numbers mean. I tutor students to understand the importance of expressions and other concepts within algebra 2.
Calculus,

Calculus

I have tutored students in many different topics of calculus from differentiation from first principles to differential equations. Calculus is a very broad topic and the experience varies greatly depending on the area of calculus. I have taken courses all the way up to differential equations and calculus on 3-d objects. I have tutored every course of calculus I have taken, and am still continuing to learn more about the incredibly vast topic. I am more than happy to help students on their road through this incredible branch of mathematics.
Chemistry,

Chemistry

I took an advanced course of chemistry in high school in which I tutored most of the class to help them both understand the concepts being given and to improve their grades. I have continued my interest in chemistry from different academic sources, and I feel its important for students to understand the important concepts that chemistry introduces such as the relationship between the electron and the atomic core. I encourage students to explore the vast concepts in chemistry, and to tackle it with an open mind.

Great Tutor!

Hussayn really keeps my son engaged in his at home learning! Hussayn is prepared and is a great at making Social Studies interesting to my 6th grade child. I couldn't recommend him enough.

On time and prompt

Using Wyzant for the first time, Hussayn made our first session very comfortable and was helpful in preparing a strategy to not only help my son prep for the sat exam but also with daily school work!

Mersiha, 1 lesson with Hussayn

Hussayn was very patient, understanding and knowledgeable of the subject.

Hussayn shared strategies with me on how to find solutions to some civil engineering mechanics problems. He is outstanding and a pleasure to work with. He was efficient and reliable and I would highly recommend him.

Great Tutor

Hussayn has a lot of energy and patience in teaching even the most difficult subjects. He has a good way of breaking complex topics into simpler, easier to grasp, sections. He clearly was knowledgeable on the subject and came in with a good strategy in mind.
