About Amira

My major is Civil Engineering and my Masters is in Engineering Management. My favorite subject is math and I have great expertise in it. My engineering degree required me to take an extensive amount of math and I still use it in my career. Ever since I was in high school I tutored/helped other students in math and science subjects. In my sophomore year of high school, my friend was failing math and needed to pass the next exam in order to pass the course. We only had one week to prepare and I dedicated time to teach my friend all of sophomore year's math in one week with patience and practice she learned and passed the exam. I enjoy teaching and helping others understand a particular subject. With this experience, I realized the importance of practice when learning math or any other subject and therefore my approach for tutoring is to present students with opportunities to practice while being guided.

During college I worked for a program called Urban Scholars where I tutored high school students from ages 14-17 the subjects of math and physics. The program consisted of helping them after their class with homework and prepare them for state exams such as the NY State regents. The sessions took place in a class room of City College of New York. During college I also did some freelance tutoring to a middle school student who needed help in math and English. I took the approach of preparing practice math problems and practice reading and questions to make sure our sessions were efficient and effective. She developed very well in the subjects and passed the year with excellent grades.

If a person is struggling with any of the subjects I offer, please feel free to contact me. I am flexible with hours and can make the learning experience efficient and valuable.
