I never had a science background and was struggling to choose between the SAT and ACT. My memorization skills would confuse me and I could not help but feel like I was not doing something correctly. After administering a number of 'mock-testing' sessions, Ushbah helped me figure that my main problem area was in organizing my study skills and learning concepts like a system, and not like news, HAHA! Using her “3 step approach”, Ushbah and I developed and implemented a learning strategy tailored to my learning style, helping me raise my score in such a small amount of time. My dreams don’t seem nearly as far now!
I am a pre-med student who once really struggled with General Chemistry. It was really stressing me out, and in the first semester of chemistry alone, I had scored a C+. I was worried about my prospects for graduate school and found the mathematical aspects of general chemistry absolutely horrifying. By tailoring a lesson plan to my needs, Ushbah was able to help me tackle even the trickiest of chemistry problems, by using and employing effective practice and repetition of key mathematical and chemical concepts involved in the subject. By the time I was halfway through with General Chemistry II, I did not even need help anymore and stood at an A in my class! Ushbah, in a way, saved my future as a medical student. Thank you so much!
I was really struggling with the ACT. After going to countless tutors and already taking the test twice, I had given up on my dream school. My spirits were low, especially because I had straight As in all my classes! That was before I came across Ushbah. English (reading comprehension) was particularly the trickiest for me, so together, we worked for a couple of hours to develop effective "test-cracking" strategies, which enhanced my reading abilities and allowed me to get through the ACT sections without boring myself out (OR running out of time)! I ended up investing more 'smart-work' into my practice than 'hard-work', getting the most possible output out of the now shorter time I was putting in. By the end of our 8 weeks together, I scored in the 99th percentile and secured admission into my dream school. I was so grateful! Ushbah is really the best.
I work with students from all kinds of backgrounds.
