EducationI graduated from the University of Michigan with a Bachelor of Science in Honors Evolutionary Anthropology. Presently, I am attending the University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine. I am primarily offering online tutoring sessions for Michigan students. Many of my students prefer this mode of tutoring because it allows for a lot of flexibility in time and location for the sessions.

ExperienceI am very passionate about teaching and instilling a love for the sciences in my students. I really enjoy guiding students to academic success. I believe that everyone can succeed in any subject with enough work and dedication. Science can be the hardest subject, but the most gratifying when you finally understand the concepts.
I have 9 Years of tutoring experience, I have been a UM Science Learning Center Study Group Facilitator (and Course Leader for Organic Chemistry) for several years, and was an Undergraduate Teaching Assistant for BIO 172 during the fall 2013 semester.
I am willing and able to teach each concept in several different ways. This is very helpful for students, especially when it is difficult to understand a concept based on the way it is being taught in class. I have taken several classes in each of the subjects I tutor for, which has given me exposure to many different approaches to explaining concepts.

I am very outgoing and enjoy communicating different learning styles catered to every kind of student.
I really cherish the opportunity to work with students of all ages and all levels.

Ali has great insight into many subjects that helped me quickly understand the material I was struggling with for chemistry. The online tutoring experience via Skype was great, it was so helpful to have flexible time and location where we could continue my learning together. Ali always makes time for you, is patient, and a joy to work with. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a great tutor!
Ali was an awesome tutor to work with! She is super knowledgable, accessible and has a ton of great resources. She made me feel comfortable asking questions, and helped me to succeed in my course. I would highly recommend working with her!!
I was seeking assistance for my son who is in high school taking an Organic Chemistry IB. My son had 1 tutorial session with Ali via Skype which was not the preferred method for my son. My son thought Ali was helpful and knowledgeable. My only issue was the way she handled payment. I would use her again but it would need to be face to face.
Ali was super helpful as I made my way through organic chemistry. I appreciated her willingness to help me beyond what is expected of a run-of-the mill tutor. For example, she provided me with a framework for how to approach a problem rather than simply reviewing answers from the course pack, which in the end was much more important for my success. She also had tons of helpful advice about the medical school admissions process. Definitely recommended!
Ali helped me increase my grade in organic chemistry almost two full letter grades from one test to the next. She is extremely patient, and figures out the best way for you to learn. She even made me some study materials beforehand, based on what I told her I needed help with. Would totally recommend her, she rocks!!
Ali was very well prepared and used all of our time very effectively. She broke all the information down to basics and organized it in an accessible and very understandable way. The best thing about Ali was her patience. She took the time to explain a concept to me in a few different ways until I understood it fully. This gave me the confidence I needed to perform successfully.
