I am a retired teacher with 27 years of experience. I have taught all subjects areas at the third, fifth, sixth, seventh, and eighth grade levels. Also, I have several years of experience teaching adult education (GED). It's my true belief that there is a genius who resides within each individual and I am an expert in helping my students identify their genius and use it to its fullest potential. My high success rate can be attributed to a strong knowledge of the subject matter, excellent teaching strategies, and total commitment to helping an individual achieve success.
I am extremely skilled at communicating with students, and this skill has always resulted in an improvement of the students' self-concept. Identifying an individual’s learning style and employing effective teacher strategies is my recipe for improvement.
Amazing Tutor - Very Experienced tutor with a broad knowledge base
An exceptional, 5 Star Tutor! After researching over 16 tutors to assist my daughter in preparing for her GED test, Atif was by far, the best choice. Atif has a professionalism which can only come from a man who is passionate about education. Atif was very quick to assess what needed to get done, and set a game plan in action. Atif will assign session goals, set homework, and provide feedback on the tutoring session to the parent/student. Hannah felt very comfortable taking instruction from Atif. His coaching style gave Hannah confidence in her ability to successfully complete the GED exam. I will be sure to retain Atif's tutoring services post GED exam, and into Hannah's college career, to ensure Hannah's success in school. Thank you Atif!Hannah, 6 lessons with Atif

Very happy to have Atif as our tutor.
My son has struggled in school particularly in subjects like math and science. Unfortunately, he has had to struggle with ADD. As much as I would like to use his ADD as an excuse I know that is not the case, for I too is ADD. 30 years ago there was no such thing as ADD, and God help me if I brought home any grade lower than a C, and even a C warranted improvement. So I worked very hard all throughout school, and learned the lesson of hard work and the rewards from it. The problem with my son is that he is extremely lazy. Anything that requires any effort beyond his comfort zone he either does half-way or quits. Atif has been very patient with Danny. He has been very helpful to me by providing me with suggestions to help him improve. He has called him out on his lack of effort which only supports what I have been telling him for years. Now is the right time for a tutor to demand effort from him as he is now a Junior in high school. I truly believe Atif genuinely cares about my son and his future. With Atif's help my son promises the second semester will be different. I have heard this before, but I know with Atif he has a better chance at keeping that promise.Leren, 3 lessons with Atif
