About Kalif

I enjoy the Legend of Zelda, which is a video game series that forces the player to pay attention to patterns and to figure out puzzles given small hints. In my opinion, Mathematics is similar-although a student may practice a group of problems, he or she finds that all of them share the same concepts and patterns.

I am currently a senior pursuing a Bachelor's Degree in Civil Engineering at the City College of New York. Here, I have strengthened my skills in Mathematics, as I have taken courses ranging from Calculus 1 to Numerical Methods. Although these courses are highly advanced math courses, they all rely on concepts from preliminary courses such as Algebra and Geometry, which is why I was able to tutor a myriad of math courses when working as a member of the City Tutors.


Whenever someone is struggling with a difficult problem or topic in mathematics, there is a good chance that he or she is not being taught properly. To resolve this, I break down the material and create simple examples. With these simple examples, the student and I work our way back to the "difficult" problem. So many concepts and topics in various math courses can be learned in this way; from my experience, this process works for many students.

It's no problem for me to help someone with a math course, so please don't hesitate to contact me.

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

As an engineering student at the City College of New York, I use algebra everyday in my classes, so I have an abundance of experience with mathematics. This is why I am confident that I can prepare you for your upcoming exam.

Algebra 2

I scored a 93% on the Algebra 2 regents and I also use trig in my engineering classes at City College so I am still very fond of the course material. With all this in mind, I can help you improve your understanding of the course.

Calculus

As an engineering student at City College, I have become an expert in math courses such as Calculus 1 and 2 and frequently use the concepts from those classes for my engineering core. Thus, I am very fond of the material and would be glad to help you out.

Geometry

I scored a 90% on the geometry regents exam, and I also use geometry in my engineering classes at the City College of New York, so I am still very fond of the course material. With all of this in mind, I can help you prepare for any algebra or geometry test that you may have.

Precalculus

Precalculus is simply Algebra 2 with a few added concepts. As an engineering student, I use those concepts for my studies and have great practice with them. I am also preparing for the GRE, which I believe can be beneficial in helping you with your ACT math prep.
