I have always had a natural inclination for mathematics, and enjoyed the experience of helping others to understand the concepts involved. As a UCLA student studying electrical engineering, I tutored fellow students for free and for pocket cash sometimes. In high school, I used to be in charge of a classroom afterschool teaching algebra to younger high school students.
My preferred approach is to go over the topics, giving the student problems until they perfect a given problem style and feels that they get it completely. For me, one of the most rewarding aspects of tutoring is seeing the moment when things just click; when a student has that “aha” moment and you can see that lightbulb go off in their head. This is particularly rewarding when a student has been struggling and I have found a way to explain the targeted concept in a way they understand.
As for my qualifications, in highschool, I obtained 7/7 in the higher level of IB Mathematics. In addition, I obtained 780/800 in math in SAT reasoning test and 800/800 for math level 2 subject test. In highschool, I was very interested in math olympiads and solving mathematical puzzles. I was part of the Saudi olympiad team where we had to finish school early in the year and be trained extensively in topics including number theory, geometry, algebra and combinatorics. I obtained a silver medal in the Gulf Mathematics Olympiad (GMO) and was an Asian Pacific Mathematics Olympiad (APMO) qualifier. In college, I took lower division and upper division math classes including single variable and multivariable calculus, linear algebra, differential equations, complex analysis, probability and statistics and performed well in them.
