Hello, I'm Omar!
I graduated summa cum laude with a 3.99 GPA from Stony Brook University. I have degrees in Pharmacology and Physics, as well as specialty in Chemistry. I have a year before I will be starting an MD PhD program in neuroscience. I have found and truly appreciated my passion for teaching throughout my college years. I have been a Ta for classes such as: General Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, Biochemistry, Physics, Biology, and Calculus 1&2. I have also been an instructor for General and Organic Chemistry.
Throughout college, I noticed that while professors implemented various strategies to facilitate learning, the most neglected factor was the student’s self motivation. In my opinion, the hard part of learning science and math is not the material itself, it is the individual's desire to learn the material; which is a trait that I heavily focus on during my tutoring lessons.
During my sessions, I do everything in my power to make learning a pleasant experience. Being that I am a recent graduate, I can relate to all of the struggles students go through. I understand how myriads of factors cause learning to be frustrating and agonizing, but I take pride in being able to navigate through those difficulties and making learning a fun process. After the lessons are complete, I always assign practice questions to allow students to practice the material on their own.
As a tutor, my most important goal is to be as beneficial as I can possibly be. I come with an open mind and a strategy of my own, but I am also welcome to all recommendations and will implement them as they need be. I come with 4 years of experience teaching STEM classes and 3 year’s experience as a tutor. I conduct both one on one and group tutoring sessions at a discounted rate. One perk that comes along with my tutoring is that I make myself available at any time of the day to answer questions free of charge. I am easy to reach and will always respond in a timely manner. Feel free to contact me with any additional questions and I look forward to speaking with you!
