Hello! My name is Omar, and I am a tutor for physics and mathematics through the collegiate level. There is nothing I enjoy more than sharing the scientific beauty of the world around us, and the math that underlies it, with my students. I help students to grasp insightful and intuitive ways of understanding physical and mathematical concepts, helping them do better in school and become better scientists. For many students, STEM can seem daunting; I hope to show them that, with the right guidance, anyone can tackle and enjoy even the most complicated science and mathematics.

There is no greater joy than helping a student reach their goals in STEM. I understand the feeling of being discouraged by difficult concepts, but I've discovered that under the right tutelage, nothing is impossible to understand. I love providing students with that guidance and watching them grow to their full potential.

When working with students, I develop a rough curriculum and gather/write problems for them based on their goals. During the sessions, I provide instruction and verify the student's understanding by asking them conceptual questions. If they haven't yet grasped the concept, I walk them through the thought process with guiding questions so that they can experience what it's like to think how a physicist or mathematician might think.

About Omar S.

I'm a third-year majoring in Physics and Mathematics at the University of Chicago with >3.9 GPA. I have 1.5 years of experience with experimental work with the EGP project at Fermilab, and I'm currently working on theoretical research in relativity under Professor David Reid. I have 2 years of experience tutoring with Onclass tutoring and teaching music with Notelove in the San Francisco Bay Area. Most importantly, I have 21 years of a passionate love for all things STEM!

In my free time, I enjoy reading, playing and writing music, exercise, and spending time with interesting people. I also enjoy watching a whole host of educational physics and math YouTube channels (such as PBS Space Time, Veritasium, 3Blue1Brown) which will almost certainly be recommended as supplemental material for our lessons. I cannot wait to get to know you and to help you reach your goals.
