"Hello there!
My name is Hakim, and I am a personable, patient, and passionate Math educator with plenty of experience in the field. Having been a student for most of my life, I am very aware that there are many bad Math teachers out there, which has contributed to a widespread fear, discomfort, and even hatred for Mathematics. My goal is to correct this issue with effective teaching methods and problem solving techniques, designed to show ANY student that mathematical understanding is always within their grasp.
I am willing and able to tutor you in just about any Math subject, ranging from Algebra I to all Calculus classes, Linear Algebra, and more advanced college mathematics courses such as Real Analysis. You can come to me for anything from general homework help to test preparation, including standardized tests such as the SAT, ACT, GRE, GMAT, Praxis, etc. Additionally, I worked as an Admissions Counselor at MIT for two years, so I can also help with more generalized college preparation advice.
I graduated with a B.A. in Mathematics from Boston University, and I recently earned a Ph.D in Mathematics at The George Washington University, where I won a universitywide teaching award. Currently, I am a Preceptor of Mathematics at Harvard University. I've been tutoring/teaching Math over the past 11 years, including charter schools, summer college preparatory programs, college/university students, and private oneonone tutoring. So I have plenty of educational experience!
I live in Cambridge, close to Central Square, and students are welcome to receive tutoring where I live, but I can go just about anywhere that is near a T stop. I can also do tutoring over the phone or via Skype (although I think inperson tutoring is the most effective, especially in Math).
My best availability is on the weekends (Saturday and Sunday), as I am free almost all day. However, I also have some limited time during the week, which we can discuss. Most importantly, I'm willing to work around your schedule.
