About Amreen


Bio

I’m happy to admit that I’m the biggest Standardized Test Prep nerd you’ll ever meet. I’m so nerdy about Test Prep that I wrote a book on it. What began as a documentation of all the “ah-ha” moments I shared with my students, quickly evolved into a user-friendly tool for generating substantial test scores gains. What I provide to all my students is the opportunity to learn test prep in a very unique and novel way. It’s a proprietary approach that is offered nowhere else and I’m sure you’ll...

I’m happy to admit that I’m the biggest Standardized Test Prep nerd you’ll ever meet. I’m so nerdy about Test Prep that I wrote a book on it. What began as a documentation of all the “ah-ha” moments I shared with my students, quickly evolved into a user-friendly tool for generating substantial test scores gains. What I provide to all my students is the opportunity to learn test prep in a very unique and novel way. It’s a proprietary approach that is offered nowhere else and I’m sure you’ll love it. When not training students to crush their upcoming tests, I can be found in my garden, at the pool or in my office updating my strategy books with my latest “ah-ha” moments. In a nutshell, I’m the best-kept secret in Standardized Test Prep Strategy. The following details my Core Strategy…

The development of my Test Prep Strategy began in response to a growing need for a more effective approach to standardized test preparation. Designed from the ground up, my method focuses on mastering my Core Strategy, utilizing scientific method & the application of known fundamentals. With my test prep strategy students learn to recognize multiple pathways to successful question stem and passage analysis. By mastering my method students learn to solve problems in a way that best aligns with their unique abilities. This fluid approach produces amazing results for students just beginning their test prep journey as well as students who want to take their scores to the next level. My “don’t think too much!” approach provides a realistic pathway to test scores that truly reflect a students potential.

RESULTS TO EXPECT

1. You will not be reading entire passages or focusing on reading comprehension. Instead, you will learn how to cut through difficult and unfamiliar text and figures to focus only on what's necessary to answer the question. With my approach students eliminate that "lost feeling" when reading complex subject matter.

2. You will learn when and how to apply fundamentals, and you will not have to go beyond the

Organic Chemistry

Organic Chemistry

Organic Chemistry is one of my favorite subjects to tutor. After teaching Organic Chemistry at the collegiate level for several years I have come to believe that although this subject can be quite difficult, laying a proper foundation eliminates much of the intimidation that a lot of students face. This foundation is rooted in the complete understanding of carbon-based compounds and their reactions. With a solid foundation my students are able to visualize Organic systems and their reactions. Not only will this add to their success in subsequent Organic Chemistry courses but it also aids in other courses like Biochemistry, Biology and even General Chemistry. Organic Chemistry does not have to be the dreaded class of most students. Allow me the opportunity to dispel this myth and let’s make ORGO interesting, challenging but most importantly FUN!

The best MCAT tutor!!!

I have taken the MCAT several times before coming to Amreen for tutoring and I can definitely say that she has completely changed my perspective on this test. I always viewed the MCAT as this beast that was impossible to conquer. Amreen showed me that this is not the case. With the right strategies and scientific fundamentals you can conquer this test. By the end of our sessions together I was consistently scoring around 10 points higher than any of my previous scores. I would recommend her as a MCAT tutor to anyone who really wants to maximize their scores and demonstrate their hard-earned scientific knowledge to the best of their abilities!

Excellent tudor

Ameren has been an amazing strenghth to my son in both Chemistry and various math courses. She has an incredible knack for knowing how to explain the material at hand and he had been able to raise his grades from D's to Bs. He is now utilizing her services in college!

Tonya, 28 lessons with Amreen

Godsend!

Amreen, you are a godsend! I believe that you were the critical piece to all of this! Greg loves working with you and he has learned a lot and through your patience and guidance, I believe he will score well from what you have taught him. I can't thank you enough!

Productive lesson

My daughter's first session with Amreen was very productive and encouraging. In one session she felt she had more progress than in three semesters in class. She is looking forward to continuing work with Amreen more.

Rosalie, 5 lessons with Amreen

Excellent tutor

She worked very well with my student. Helped her in all areas of test and most importantly with gaining confidence in her skills We are expecting great results, she had many practice tests and reviewed all incorrect answers and went over corrections. I would recommend Amreen, she fit in with my student's schedule and timeframe.

Excellent Tutor

Amreen is very patient with me and encouraging. She challenges me and is also very generous with her time. I am continuing to gain confidence with her help.

Ariel, 10 lessons with Amreen

amazing!

I was hesitant about tutoring since working with someone can be quite intimidating, so I'm so glad I've found Amreen. She never makes me feel uncomfortable, and assures me that the information I'm learning in organic chem is indeed doable! I also wasn't sure about tutoring over Skype but I have found it to be extremely convenient and just as affective. She really is the best, I would recommend her to anyone!

Danielle , 16 lessons with Amreen

Great tutor for college students too!

My daughter needed some extra help in microbiology. Amreen met with her each week on campus at Illinois State University. The one on one help boosted her confidence and she successfully finished off the semester!
