I have over 12 years of experience teaching Math, Physics, Chemistry and standardized tests and have helped students from a wide range of ages—middle school through graduate school—as well as learning abilities and backgrounds.

I'm currently a senior data scientist at a biotech firm and continue to tutor on the side as I genuinely enjoy it!

As a teacher, my main goal is to get my students to think on their own, without my supervision. When given an open-ended or unfamiliar problem, they should be able to use what they learn in our tutoring session, amassing factual and procedural knowledge and engaging in higher-order critical thinking to resolve it into manageable subproblems. I want to be able to cultivate a stronger understanding of science, not only as a body of knowledge but as a way of thinking.

- UW Scientific Teaching Experience for Postdocs (UW STEP)
- Postdoctoral Researcher at the Institute for Systems Biology
- PhD in Physics and Biology in Medicine from David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA
- MS in Electrical Engineering from the George Washington University (GWU)
- BS in Biomedical Engineering (minor in Biophysics) from GWU
- Several hours of one-on-one private tutoring through Wyzant and other online tutoring platforms
- "Principles of Engineering Design" Instructor & Research Mentor for Johns Hopkins' Center for Talented Youth
- "General Chemistry" Graduate Teaching Assistant at UCLA

I am well qualified to tutor Arabic as it is my native language and I was born and raised in the United Arab Emirates. My experience with the Arabic language includes: (a) working as an Arabic Tour Director for State Department Arab delegates for 4 years, (b) being the president of the Arab Student Association for 2 years at the George Washington University, and (c) teaching State Dept personnel (in Washington, DC) and young adults (in Chicago, IL) speaking, reading, and writing (in Arabic).

Clear, focused, knowledgeable, kind tutor

Amal is terrific - reliable, easily understood, engaging, efficient. She helped my 9th grader with his geometry homework and with studying for a test. He felt very confident with the material after working with her. She is a very personable, professional tutor - I highly recommend her for any math needs!

Excellent

I didn't think I'd ever find someone that would have the ability and the patience to effectively help me understand Math again. Her kindness matches her intelligence. Which explains her choice of study. If there were a few more Amal's out there, I'm sure we would cure cancer, much much sooner.

So happy we found her!

I don't know where to begin... Amal goes above and beyond in her tutoring method. She is confident, kind, patient and also very good at identifying where my daughter is having issues with in the subject... And then she thoroughly tackles it until my daughter is confident enough in understanding it. We are so blessed to have her on our side. My daughter keeps showing improvement in understanding the materials more clearly. For that, we are so very thankful!! Her grade is going up!

One of the best tutors I have ever had!!

She always comes on time, and she is a friendly considerate person. She makes math easier for me. I really recommend anybody who has difficulty in math or in any subject to ask for tutor Amal. You won't regret it.

Great tutor!

I contacted Amal about two weeks before my GRE exam, as I was worried about my performance on the math sections. She replied to my email right away and was readily available to tutor me. Amal was very patient and understanding. She effectively taught me the methods and concepts I needed to know. I am happy to say that I passed my GRE exam on the first attempt, thanks greatly to Amal!
