Fatima

Bio

Born in NYC and raised in Los Angeles, Fatimatou (Fatima) embodies a little bit of both cities and you would be hard pressed to make her choose one. Fatima attended Columbia University where she was pre-med and studied Chemistry and Hispanic Studies. She was the 2015 Baccalaureate Speaker and the recipient of the QuestBridge Scholarship. After Columbia, she joined Infosys Ltd. as an analyst in their Life Sciences Practice. She is now a brand ambassador at Everlane in Soho and is planning to attend medical school in the near future.

Fatima has been teaching ever since she started helping her little brother with his schoolwork at a young age. She formally started tutoring while she was at Columbia helping students from elementary school to high school succeed. She has worked with students on Elementary Math, Algebra, Geometry, Chemistry and much more. Additionally, she has experience helping students prepare for the ISEE. Fatima loves working with students and is passionate about tailoring her approach to the needs of every student. The most rewarding aspect about teaching for her is taking a difficult subject matter and making it approachable for a student. 

For fun she loves to bake, curl up in bed with a good book, go for long walks in Central Park and explore new restaurant in the city with friends! Her guilty pleasure is the Whole Foods Tres Leches cake that she loves way too much for her own good.
