Hello to all my future students (and parents) seeking to excel in their math and physics classes, and ultimately in their careers! I am currently accepting students for online only tutoring. I am a graduate of the University of Texas at Austin with a Bachelor's degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering. I am currently working on my Masters in Computer Science!

Hello to all my future students (and parents) seeking to excel in their math and physics classes, and ultimately in their careers! I am currently accepting students for online only tutoring. I am a graduate of the University of Texas at Austin with a Bachelor's degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering. I am currently working on my Masters in Computer Science! I have over 10 years of tutoring experience in math and physics courses. I specialize in math courses taught between the 6th and 12th grades and all college courses up until calculus (Geometry, Pre Algebra, Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Pre-Calculus, Calculus, Statistics). I also have expertise in Physics 1. I can also tutor in linear algebra and discrete math if necessary.
I also do SAT and ACT preparation for Math and Writing.

My tutoring approach is unique. I pride myself in understanding the style of my students' learning first, then applying an individual teaching style to each student. I also specialize in relating math and physics concepts to the real world so that it is easier for my students to relate to their subjects. I have a 100% success rate in transforming a failing grade into a passing grade of B or above. I expect my students to apply themselves but I take responsibility in providing them the tools to do so.

Here is the kicker: I love math. I love to help students succeed. I love to get my students excited about their work and teach them confidence in these subjects that have otherwise turned into a burden for them. I believe that every person in this world can do math if they are taught correctly. I am the tutor that will think about my student on the day of their big exam and then get excited to see and email or get a phone call from them later on with a playback of how the test was!

Choose me as your tutor and experience a new found confidence for yourself or your child in the world of math and sciences. I look forward to working with you. Let's do math!

Very knowledgeable and patient

Physics. She made my daughter feel comfortable and she was able to understand the concepts well. At the end of the session my daughter felt more confident with a smile on her face

PEACHES, 1 lesson with Zakiyyah

She is very knowledgable and caring.

Zakiyyah worked with my daughter with pre algebra concepts for her 7th grade math class. She also helped her with going over her school work. She was very patient with my daughter and took the time to explain every concept to her. She was very professional. I am very grateful for all her help. Thank you so much Zakiyyah.

Samiya, 1 lesson with Zakiyyah

Excellent instructor

She is very patient and excellent at teaching my son. He feels more competent after session with her. Im thankful for finding her.

Rebecca, 4 lessons with Zakiyyah

Great instructor!

My son was really happy with his tutor, she did a great job covering what he needed help with and explained it in a way he understood. I would use her again! She is very patient and a good instructor.

Seeta, 2 lessons with Zakiyyah

Algebra 2 expert

Algebra 2 review with understanding of steps to obtain answer. Amazing knowledge base, teaching skills and patience. Boost in confidence after 1 session. Feeling more empowered and confident in applying concepts and understanding.

Rebecca, 4 lessons with Zakiyyah

Knowledgeable and Patient Tutor

Zakiyyah is great! She is skilled in recognizing weakness and re-building skills and confidence. She is patient and encouraging. My son actually looks forward to his sessions.

Tanisha, 13 lessons with Zakiyyah

Patient, personable, knowledgeable, and kind!

Zakiyyah has a deep understanding of physics and is great at breaking down complex concepts. Her patience and kindness make me feel comfortable to admit when and where I am lost. She's really helping me build my confidence back up! So happy I was able to find her!!!

Grace, 3 lessons with Zakiyyah

Zakiyyah is an excellent tutor and responds so quickly to her emails.

My son needed help tonight for his C-Sharp class and computer programming class and Zakiyyah did not hesitate to meet with him and explain to him what he needed to do on his homework. She worked so well with him and he totally understood what he needed to do before the 2 hour session was over. Thank you so much Zakiyyah for squeezing him in and helping him understand his assignment. He was so excited that he was able to understand what he needed to do, where as his professor did not clearly state what they needed to do. I will continue to have my son see Zakiyyah on a weekly basis to ensure he can grasp all of the concepts he needs to be successful in his programming classes. A Huge Thanks To You!!!

Diane, 23 lessons with Zakiyyah

Excellent Teacher

She makes me feel confident and I like Computer Science a lot more because of her tutoring. I look forward to her coaching sessions. Thank you Ms. Zakiyyah.
