About Ahmed

My background spans Mathematics to Philosophy to Law (B.A., M.S., J.D.), but I talk in a straightforward, down-to-earth manner. I believe most material can be communicated in everyday language and illustrated with real-life examples. This is especially true in math.

My teaching philosophy emphasizes the adage "teach a man to fish." One of the goals of each lesson is to show you how much you already know and how to build from there to mastery of the subject. I have taught English as a foreign language both in class and in the home, and tutored mathematics to high school students in Spanish. Recently, I tutored and mentored at a high school in Seattle, where I was amazed what students from disadvantaged neighborhoods can do with some respect and encouragement.

I approach mathematics like language, foreign language like music, and writing like sport, and I adapt to the student's personality and learning style. My ultimate goal is to help a student take charge of his or her own learning while being a mentor and coach along the way.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Arabic

I grew up speaking Egyptian dialect at home and have studied the language in grade school and in college. At the University of Wisconsin I took three advanced and intermediate courses, and currently I do research in politics in the Arabic language.

Chess

I have been the chess coach at Evergreen High School for the last two years. I have played tournament chess at a B level.

Discrete Math

Between January 2000 and December 2001, I taught a course called Contemporary Applications of Modern Mathematics for four semesters at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. The course covered Graph Theory, Voting Methods, Apportionment, The Traveling Salesman Problem, and Descriptive Statistics.

I planned, taught, and graded this class for two sections each semester, with around 25 students in each class.

Logic

My B.A. is in Mathematics and Philosophy, and I have an M.S. in Applied Mathematics. I took two logic classes as an undergraduate, Honors Introductory Logic and Advanced Logic. I received a grade of A on both.

Thank you Ahmed for helping me not only survive, but thrive in my economics courses — You would be amazed how difficult it is to find a great economics tutor. It is a subject that is, in my opinion, difficult to explain, and, since it is not an exact science, there are few out there who are consistently able to provide answers on a wide range of material. Fortunately, Ahmed had both mastery of the subject and was able to explain it in an easy to understand manner. I credit Ahmed wi ...
