Hi, my name is Faraz, and I would love to be your tutor! I grew up in Mississippi and attended high school there. Ever since I graduated from high school I wanted to come to Texas. When I was 19, I packed up and did. I worked in Texas for a while so that I could get my instate residency and then attended college at Texas Tech University. At Texas Tech, I majored in Chemistry with a minor in computer science. I took quite a few math courses as well as some engineering courses. After TTU, I... [more]
I have tutored Algebra I to many students all over Houston. I have helped many struggling students on the basics of algebra. A good algebra I foundation can make your next grade in Algebra II.
I have tutored this subject from high school all through college and even reviewed it in the study of calculus with many of my students. Algebra II is the basis for the advanced maths such as pre-cal and calculus. A little help now can go a long way!
Calculus is probably one of my most favorite subjects to tutor. I have helped many students in calculus I and calculus II. We begin with the study of limits and go into graphing, differentiation, and the many types of integration. Calculus I and II are used in many subjects including engineering, physics, and computation chemistry.
I have a degree in chemistry and have taught this subject to many students. I have reviewed basic chemistry as well as more advanced techniques.
Pre-Calculus is a math that mixes both algebra and trigonometry as well as some physics. I have tutored pre-cal to many students in Cy-Fair and Memorial. A strong pre-cal foundation can help you succeed in AP Calculus AB/BC. It is one of the more difficult subjects but can be taught in an easy way.
I am familiar with UNIX and Linux and have installed it on my computer. I am familiar with basic commands in Linux as well as UNIX. Linux is a graphic-based operating system, much like Windows except more powerful. I can help walk you through Linux as well as edit files, do some C++ programming, and help you compile programs in Linux.
I have worked for years with MS Windows including Windows 97, XP, 7, and 8. I can install the program and have had programming experience as well in various languages. I can show students the basics as well as advance features of Windows including installing hardware and software, removing applications, saving and deleting files.
I studied organic chemistry in college while majoring in chemistry. It has been a few years since I have done organic, however I have had to use the basic tools they teach in organic such as spectroscopy in my every day work as a chemist. The junior organic chemistry course is typically based upon the octet rule. It goes to nomenclature as well as learning basics about hydrocarbons. I am comfortable with explaining the basics in organic chemistry.
