Tahseen

Bio

Tahseen originally wanted to become a genetic engineer, spending his summers in high school splicing zebrafish genes in an attempt to better understand early kidney development (and of course, to watch them glow green). However, after taking an enthusiastically-taught calculus class his senior year, Tahseen decided to become a math major at the University of Virginia. That particular experience gave him a strong desire to eventually become a professor and help foster the next generation of mathematicians. 

While at the University of Virginia, Tahseen was selected as an Echols Scholar and nearly cleaned out the course catalog in the Mathematics department, graduating with high distinction in Spring 2015. He received several departmental and University grants to conduct research and has written two published papers. After working for a year as a software developer, Tahseen pursued a Master's Degree in Mathematics at NYU's Courant Institute of Mathematics. He is now a PhD Candidate in Computer Science at the University of Maryland. 

Given his comprehensive background and strong appreciation of teaching, Tahseen enjoys helping others with just about any mathematical subject. In addition to tutoring, Tahseen runs an NYU Math seminar and also works with the Julia Robinson Mathematics Festival to help set up non-competitive math events for underrepresented groups. For fun, he plays competitive soccer, tries cooking new recipes (with mixed results), dominates trivia nights, and makes photorealistic drawings.

    "I was out of school for a while and Tasheen was the reason I was able to keep up with my work. He worked with me and my teacher so that I would be up to date in class. Tasheen was not only great at explaining problems and teaching me how to work them out he was also pleasant to be around and was interested in my overall school experience. My mother and I have always had wonderful experiences with Cambridge. The staff has acted on quick notice for us when necessary and always managed to find great tutors for me and my siblings."
