Mathematical Sciences (M.Sc) Graduate with University Teaching Experience for high school and 1st year Bachelor students

Methodology

I believe the best way to learn is through practice. My idea is to explain complicated concepts through examples. I teach based on the student's educational needs and demands. I teach mathematical theories using practical industry examples from the real world so that students can appreciate what they are learning. I am comfortable teaching algebra, calculus, statistics, differential equations, trigonometry.

Background

I pursued my Bachelor's degree in Mathematical Scienced specializing in Abstract Algebra. Mathematical derivations and deductions are areas I am very comfortable with. So, I decided to take my passion a level further and pursued a Master degree in Mathematical Sciences specializing in Statistics. I was employed by Laurier as an Instructional Assistant tutoring 1st year and 2nd-year undergraduate students. The job entailed me explaining them the theories, helping with their in-class assignments and grading those assignments. I also have experience in tutoring middle school and high school students.

Perfect! Amazing. I think she’s one of my favourite math tutors I’ve had so far. Super friendly and really good at explaining the main ideas and giving tips for a better understanding of the subject.

Perfect! Fatima is an extremely detailed, patient and very easy to understand tutor. She was always available, punctual and very approachable. When I started taking tutoring session with her, statistics was the fear of my life. By the end of my semester, I was understanding what I was learning and actually now since I understand statistics so much better thanks to Fatima I am beginning to like the subject (which is weird, right??:)). I strongly recommend Fatima, since not too many people actually can explain statistics and never scared of a challenge. Fatima you are the best!!! Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart!!!

Perfect! Fatima brings to the table a wealth of knowledge in statistics with an exceptional skill in teaching her knowledge in a format that any level student can comprehend. She has a lovely personality and with an abundance of patience to help ensure her student comprehends their learnings and always open to spending extra time in any area of the course to ensure full comprehension. She is absolutely wonderful in every way and I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a remarkable tutor!

Rochelle

Perfect! Fatima is amazing. Our son was struggling with grade 9 math and was very anxious about his final exam. Fatima helped him work through concepts he was having difficulty with. She was extremely patient and encouraging. He even admitted himself how helpful she was. The online/skype format was great too. They could screen share and our son was in a comfortable environment - which helped him get over the whole 'needing a tutor' embarrassment (when you are in grade nine everything is embarrassing). Fatima reached out after every lesson to see how it went, and to follow up with homework she would give. Fatima went over and above what we would have expected. She found areas that needed extra support and always went at a pace that was comfortable for our son. We LOVED her. We have recommended her to our friends.

Perfect! Review
Fatima is an incredibly patient and friendly person. She creates an environment where you feel comfortable to learn, which I think is very important. She went above and beyond to help me, given the limited time I had to grasp stats. She ensures that you understand concepts wholly and are able to internalize them and think for yourself. With her help I am much more confident in my skills in stats and to my surprise I actually enjoy a subject I once hated.

Aashka

Perfect! Fatima is very knowledgable in the field of Calculus. She has a great way of explaining concepts and ensuring that I understand. My math skills have greatly improved because of her and I certainly recommend her to new students!

Fatima's response

Fatima is a great teacher. I had a great experience with her. Her notes were very helpful to review before the exams. The best thing about Fatima is she provides all the notes, so I didn't have to listen and write at the same time. I was able to focus listening to her. Would definitely work with her again in my next semester

M
Montaseer

I was lucky to come across Fatima when I needed advanced math tutoring for university. She is very intelligent, patient and nice as a teacher. It's true what they say that not every good student is a good teacher - but Fatima's ability to teach complex topics so well really proves her level of knowledge and comfort with advanced math. Definitely recommend!

S
Syed Hasan

Her background in Mathematics is phenomenal and her credentials speaks for itself. She loves teaching mathematics from a very long time and she explains mathematical concepts beautifully and with comfort

S
Samanjar

Fatima is the most patient tutor I’ve ever had. She would go above and beyond to help me understand a concept behind a problem. I’ve never been more confident of math before. I highly recommend her.

P
Penny

Fatima is very patient, and her sole focus is for you to internalize the concepts and have a deeper understanding of mathematics and problem solving. She also flips the problem statement to allow you to see it from a different perspective, which is a very important skill.

Fatima has a lot of teaching experience in her field. She has extended experience teaching university students. She breaks down complicated concept for easy understanding, and makes great notes for her students.

Fatima's interview

QUESTION 01 | 05
When and why did you develop an interest in your chosen field?
Fatima — As a child, I have always struggled with Maths not because I didn't know how to solve but because no one around me was able to address my curiosity. The answers I got from teachers were never satisfactory to my inquisitive mind. At a certain age, I came to the realization that I had to find answers for my own questions: the whats, whys and hows were becoming burden on others. Thus began the journey and the dive to this art of logic, before I knew it I had gone as far as getting a Masters. I am still exploring and learning just like my students, this passion is never ending and will remain embedded till the rest of my life.
QUESTION 02 | 05
What makes you passionate about your subject?
Fatima — I love the challenges that come with Maths, both literally and figuratively. There is a constant gnawing in my head if I am unable to solve a problem. It is this friendly paranoia that keeps me on my toes and lets me dig deeper. Although, my ultimate goal remains in sharing my curiosity. I have never and still don't like studying for grades, the crave should always be to learn more and everythinh shall fall into place.
QUESTION 03 | 05
What do you like about tutoring? What makes you a "Superprof"?
Fatima — I have parents coming to me blaming themselves for not being able to help their children, or deeming that their children aren't performing satisfactorily because their kids aren't good at Maths by heredity. The fact that I can bring about changes to their thinking makes me more drawn towards tutoring. I love seeing their faces when I have explained a topic and they have come to understand it and are able to solve every question related to it. I love addressing their curiosity and bringing light to their faces, that's my achievement and that's what makes me a Superprof.
QUESTION 04 | 05
Do you have any role models; a teacher that inspired you?
Fatima — Absolutely, a professor back from Malaysia during my Undergrad years inspires me to this day. She has dedicated her whole life to Maths, a true Mathematician by nature. I have never come back from her empty-handed, always addressed my curiosity and motivated me to learn more. I am and will always be indebted to her.
QUESTION 05 | 05
What are your keys to success?
Fatima — In my opinion there is only one rule of thumb, continue with your hunger for knowledge and everything will fall into place. Keep practicing, even when you fail to get to the bottom of the problem. There are plenty of things you will explore while failing and when you finally make it, the joy of achievement will be worth it. Patience and practice is the only key to be successful.
