Hello to all my future students and parents! I am a graduate of the University of Texas at Austin with a Bachelor's degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering. I have over 10 years specializing in math courses between 6th to 12th grades and college courses up until calculus (Geometry, Pre Algebra, Algebra 1&2, Pre-Calculus, Calculus). I also have expertise in Physics 1.
Additionally, I do preparation for SAT and ACT (Math and Science subjects)

i specialize in crisis tutoring. meaning when your student is severely behind or struggling, I set up a plan to get them back on track and focus on the main concepts to help them recover.

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!

AMAZING PATIENT WONDEFUL.

really helped me out for my math class. I wishhh I found her earlier. She is patient fast worker and teacher. She is super knowledgeable and kind. I love her and I will continue to choose her for my next math class.

Pr, 7 lessons with Zakiyyah

knowledgeable and patient tutor

My son is learning and retaining the skills Zakiyyah is teaching. She is patient and kind and wants my son to be successful. Scheduling lessons is easy and she responds to requests in a timely manner. We are happy to have found her.

Malaika, 5 lessons with Zakiyyah

Excellent Math Tutor!!

Ms. Zakiyyah is exceptional as a tutor. By the end of the first session, my son's confidence in math was on the way back up. Ms. Zakiyyah quickly figured out what my son did or did not know, and started on problems that would give him a boost of confidence as he figured out how to solve. Ms. Zakiyyah knew when to ask questions that would lead my son to the correct answer, and he was fantastic about how encouraging she was in a very sincere way. I listened to the first sessions and am amazed at how Ms. Zakiyyah was able to simplified math problems so smoothly! My son said, "Finally, I found a tutor who understands me." Planning more sessions, she's a keeper!

Roland, 28 lessons with Zakiyyah

Extremely Helpful

Zakiyyah did a great job of connecting with my daughter and establishing a connection while getting to know her and understand my daughters understanding of learning style. After two sessions, my daughter is already seeing improvement on homework and her first test. She is excited and on time for the sessions with Zakiyyah (that says it all).!
