EducationMS Computer Science at Rutgers University, NJ, USA. Degree obtained in 2007 with 3.8 GPA.
Completed PhD coursework at Rutgers in 2010.
ExperienceI tutor students from high school to graduate level in various subjects including Math, General Science, Statistics, Physics and Computer Science, and have helped students prepare for their SATs.
Coming from a theoretical CS discipline, I have a strong mathematical background. During my graduate studies, I taught a mathematics course given to students who needed additional academic assistance before starting their first year at the university. I revised and taught the topics to orient and prepare them for their first calculus class. I was also employed as a teaching assistant for sophomore and junior level computer science courses. Most recently, I taught 2 computer science courses to 2nd and 3rd year CEGEP students at John Abbott College in Montreal.
Having been a student with very good academic standing, as well as being resourceful, sociable and known for enjoying to teach, I have been approached regularly by my friends and colleagues, not to mention family, for help in understanding basic as well as advanced concepts.
HobbiesI love to arrange outings and trips with friends and family and I love to travel. I have lived in Pakistan, Russia, Nigeria, USA, Canada and visited several countries including Italy, France, India, Nepal, China, Uzbekistan, etc. I am fluent in Urdu/Hindi and English. I am trying to learn French.

Arzoo is a life saver! She has a gift for being able to explain statistics in plain English, and she was very patient and helpful even when I struggled with some of the concepts. About 20 minutes into our first meeting, I was surprised to find that the pieces were starting to fall into place and I started to understand. She was also very professional in all of our dealings. I would recommend her to any statistics student who needs extra help.
Best tutor I've ever had! Syeda is a very smart and knowledgable women and can help you with anything you need. She's also avery nice and sociable which is a plus!
I had an argent task to take care of. She was really helpful with alot of things. Explain to me how to take care of this task from beginning to finish. It was really pleasant experience to learn from her :)!!
Fantastic tutor. Fairly straight forward and forgiving when you don't understand. Challenges students so you and great at explaining concepts!
Arzoo has proven to be a very valuable asset in my education, especially in first year physics at U of T. She not only understands all of the subject material very well, she is also able to communicate it in ways that make sense, and targets areas she can tell you might be struggling most with. Very skilled, very helpful, and highly recommended.
Very insightful, and helpful. Arzoo takes the time to prepare for the tutoring session, getting me to send material beforehand. She will go over problems in a concise and well thought out manner that really helps you to understand the fundamentals of the material.
Arzoo is wonderful, she has been super helpful. She prepares herself before our classes and puts the effort to find a learning strategy suitable for her students. Arzoo is very committed and is also very knowledgable. She has helped me tons with CSC104 at UOFT.
She was an excellent tutor. Was skillful, had patience and the best thing I liked with her was the follow up. She was very sincere and helpful.
So far, Syeda A. has been one of the best investments i think i have made in a long time. She has really helped me with my statistics class and is very, very helpful with explaining things in a way so that you can understand them. I would highly recomend her if you need help. Not only does she help you work the formulas but she shows you what the concepts are and what they mean. Thus far i only have good things to say about her. I will continue working with her until my class is finished. And she is very pleasant and kind as well.
A fantastic teacher and communicator. She called me right away after I contacted her and talked to me for 20 minutes discussing what my needs were. She really helped me prepare for my exam by being able to teach me difficult concepts in a simplistic manner. What I appreciated most about Syeda is that she is very genuine and sincerely cared about my success. She was kind enough to ask how I did on my exam eventhough I am no longer a student of hers. To me, that is a true teacher.
Syeda helped me understand my physics class better. She is able to find different ways to explain theories which were difficult for me to grasp. I ended up passing my physics class, I wouldn't have been able to do it without her help.
