Experience

Aroob was training for three years to be a math and chemistry high school teacher before she decided she wanted to do research first and joined the PhD program at CU Boulder. During those three years, she had to attend pedagogical seminars monthly (at least) to teach her how to teach science and math to those that struggled with it, and how to make abstract concepts more universally understood. She also was part of the EFE (Early Field Experience) program that placed her in a high school chemistry class, and a middle school Algebra class, each for 1 semester. In those semesters, she observed some of the best teachers in the Fresno Unified School District teach, and she herself was responsible in teaching at least one lesson in each semester, with feedback from her students. Aroob was also a TA for GenChem 1 in Fall 2014/Spring 2015/Summer2015, as well as Gen Chem 2 Summer 2015/Fall 2015 and she was a head TA for Gen Chem 2 ins Spring 2016.  She enjoyed having her own classes for a semester and helping them succeed. She has won the Teaching Excellence Award in the Chemistry department both years she has taught.
<p>Aroob has informally tutored many of her friends in almost every STEM subject she has taken, as she did pretty well in those subjects, earning A's (in some cases, the top score or second best- she is competitive). She has also formally tutored a student for 6 years in Arabic and Math, following her from middle school to high school. Besides that, she was a Sunday School teacher for 6 years, she has helped lead programs to introduce math and science to thousands of elementary and middle school kids in the San Joaquin Valley via programs called Circuit Science and Stellar Science, and she overall loves to teach, and enjoys it very much when people learn, and will do everything in her power to get the student that far.

Course: Gen Chem 1 Satisfactory Performance

Aroob is amazing. She is beyond patient and will work through a problem as many times as it takes for you to understand it.

Course: General Chemistry 1 (CHEM 1113) Satisfactory Performance

Aroob is a great tutor to have, she was available every time I had to rearrange my busy schedule. She gave extra practice problems to support the sections one needs the most help on. Her patients with teaching difficult topics is phenomenal because she takes the stress and frustration away when it doesn't quite "click" yet.

Course: High School Algebra Satisfactory Performance

On a scale of 0 to 10, she is solid a 9.5 or 10. She was flexible with her meeting times, very polite and easy going. She knew how to approach the work so I could easily understand the subject. She was patient and easy to work with. She was punctual and charged a reasonable rate. She was more helpful to work with because she could work one on one with me and observe the mistakes I made.

An extremely intelligent Chemistry tutor!

Course: General Chemistry 1 (CHEM 1113) Satisfactory Performance

Aroob is an amazing tutor. She cares about my success. I used her for Chem I and again for Chem II. After a few sessions with her I recommended her to all of my friends who used her as well. She is always prepared, provides explanations that make more sense to me, and offers extra practice problems to work on between sessions to make sure we are successful. I will continue to use Aroob for any other classes she tutors in the future!

Aroob is amazing. She makes learning Chemistry so fun because she is hilarious and very enthusiastic. She always makes sure her students understand the material and she will explain the material in multiple ways until you understand it. I will recommend her to all of my friends. She is an awesome person and a great tutor! Very impressed.

I love Akoob! She is a very intelligent, kind, and supportive tutor. She always has your best interest at heart and wants you to succeed in whatever chemistry course you need help with. All of my friends and I get tutored from her and we wouldn't want anyone else.

Aroob is extremely easy going and she makes tutoring fun. She is easy to talk to and makes you feel less stressed. She makes concepts easier to understand and she will try multiple ways explaining things until you fully understand it. I would recommend her to anyone!

Aroob could be the epitome of tutoring. I'm not particularly experienced with tutors, but she is everything you'd need. Extremely proficient in knowledge and she is good at helping you understand the concepts. Awesome personality and provides some grade A Banter. Her time is worth more than $20 and I'll certainly contact her if I'm in need of help again.

Course: General Chemistry 1 (CHEM 1113) Satisfactory Performance

I recommend her because I never walk out of a session without knowing how to do the problems I came in asking her about! She brings up multiple ways to show me how to do problems which makes my understanding much better and they are ways that I can apply on tests! Since I began using her as a tutor my test grades have improved. After the first two Chemistry tests I didn't think I would be able to pass the class but now I have and I would not have been able to without Aroob!
