About Omar

Dear prospective student:

I am patient and enjoy tutoring. When encountering a new student I implement various learning processes to find the most effective way of helping them learn a new topic. What makes me unique as a tutor is that I understand that every student will learn differently and will require a different method of learning and I am always willing to take time out of my own schedule to make sure that my lectures are tailored to a student's specific needs and way of learning. I take pleasure in designing a specific tutoring style which will meet a student's learning goals.

I gain personal gratification from knowing that I'm making a difference in a student's life. Witnessing noticeable improvement in a student's performance, due to my tutoring services, is more important to me than any monetary gains. The ability to establish a creative connection with a student is an inherent ability which has been thoroughly refined through my tutoring experiences. Consequently, I believe that I possess the characteristics, passion, strong work ethic, and winning attitude to help any student conquer their academic hardships.

In the past five years, I have sharpened my instructional and tutoring abilities through my academic studies, numerous extracurricular activities, and as a tutor in Mathematics, Science, English, and Writing for the NYC Department of Education. As a tutor I prepared comprehensive lectures, modified to the unique learning style of each student and I created innovative methods of instructing.

I believe that my passion for teaching, my tutoring experiences and aptitude in the topics I am qualified to tutor make me a top choice as your tutor. I have experience in helping with writing assignments. This is in addition to the deep interest and knowledge I've acquired for mathematics and science through extensive tutoring experience and formal education. Whether you're taking the course now or plan on taking any of the courses I'm qualified to tutor, 1-on-1 learning is the best way to gain the competitive advantage that will benefit you through your academic career and beyond. I look forward to discussing my expertise and assisting you in your academic endeavors.

I graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Chemical Engineering with a minor in Physics from the City College of New York in May of 2013. I am now employed as a Business Transformation Consultant for Information Business Machines (IBM).

Thank you for your consideration.

Sincerely,
Omar D.
