Pationate teacher and PhD graduate offering university level Molecular Biology, Biochemistry, Cellular Biology, Genomics and Bioinformatics lessons

Methodology

I have taught the curriculum a few times as a TA, and I believe each student learns in their own way. Whatever the reason you find yourself needing a tutor, I will focus on what YOU need. I first prepare you by giving a clear and concise overview of the subject. I then narrow down to the key concepts you need most. I break up the topic into small parts, explaining each one separately, and then combining them again into the big picture.

The knowledge out there is unlimited, and I want you to be independent, so I try to teach you how to learn, and not just what to learn. I will attempt to answer any questions you have, and will let you know if I simply do not know.

Experience

I love teaching! I have been a teaching assistant since I was a BSc student in Bonn, Germany, throughout my Master's in Dundee, Scotland, and during my PhD in Lausanne, Switzerland. My students are always fasinated by their ability to understand once I help them grasp a few key concepts. I teach them how to continue on their own, while being there for them in case things start getting messy again!

Perfect! My lessons with Saif were great. He explained all the concepts to me very well. I finally understood things I couldn’t figure out on my own. He is a great tutor! I will definitely contact him again if I need help.

Tom

Perfect! Very good clear explanations!

Saif's response

Tom is flexible, clear on what he needs, and asks questions when something is unclear. Is a pleasure tutoring him.

Hessa

Perfect! I am a 2nd year undergraduate genetics student and I have managed to finish more than 3 online lessons with Dr. Saif before my resit (first lesson was free). I contacted Dr. Saif before 3 weeks of my exam and it was his vacation time although he contacted me on time and was flexible with timing (I am based in Dubai). He explained to me complicated and intense topics efficiently during his vacation to Egypt it’s really noble. He respected the time difference and extended the lesson time in order for me to understand well. Dr. Saif explained to me protein expression and purification, side-directed mutagenesis and saturation mutagenesis in details and genetics engineering topics including golden gate assembly, primer designing using restriction enzymes and Gibson assembly. Dr. Saif was really calm and provided with basics and more information regarding each topic that I was struggling with in a short period of time. I didn’t have any technological issues with safe, I sent all of my large materials to saif via wetransfer, had the lessons via zoom, he explained to me the topics using drawing (sketch)and sent me extra videos and related studying materials via email. After each lesson Saif motivatied me to go over everything and study well. I had me Resit exam before a week and it went really good and I have answered the questions with high confidence. I am considering Dr. Saif for my 3rd year and I recommend him for any university student that struggles with Biology and genetics topics in specific to contact him. Wish you the Best Saif

Perfect! Saif was an amazing tutor! i wish i had him from before hand. I only had a few lessons with him before my exam and he helped me understand everything so clearly. He gave the most perfect level of detail and from not understanding a single concept to understanding almost everything in such a small space of time would not have been possible without him!

A
Abra

Perfect! I had few lessons with Saif. He helped me with molecular biology module in my masters course. Even though I asked him for help in short time before my exam, he did his best to find time for me to help me understanding different lectures. He is patient and able to explain complicated subjects in a simple way. Based on my great experience with him, I would recommend Saif as a tutor.

Saif's response

I really enjoyed my lessons with Abrar. She is clear in what she understands and what she needs help with, and her questions challenge me to provide better explanations for unclear topics. I look forward to continuing lessons with her in the future.

I have worked with Saif for several years both in a UK research institute and in a private health company in Switzerland. Saif has a very good knowledge of the fundamentals of Molecular Biology and I have always been very impressed by the seminars he was giving. He manages to explain theory and experimental concepts in simple terms also to a non-expert audience. I have also gotten to know him as a very patient person that takes his time to teach other people and makes sure that one understands. I would therefore highly recommend him as a tutor.

Hi, I am an old friend of Saif's. We used to study Pharmaceutical Siences and Biotechnology at university together for our bachelor's degree. I had hard times studying courses like physiology and physical chemistry.
He is good at explaining, making hard concepts simpler to understand, and organizing data making it easy to memorize.

C
Caterina

Saif was already an experienced PhD student, when I started working in the same laboratory.
I was blessed to have Saif walking me through molecular biology and biochemistry techniques, while teaching me a shortcut or two.
Furthermore, he is thoughtful, caring and makes conscious efforts to build meaningful relationships.
Saif can explain concepts slowly and clearly, maintaining a constant positive approach.
He is also talented at creating attractive presentations, which help him conveying his message.
I would strongly recommend Saif to any student seeking to excel in the field of molecular biology.

S
Sherin

I got to know Saif during our bachelor studies. He already stuck out by challenging the professors with his questions.
Myself, having no background in physics Saif offered me physics tutorials in between our classes. I accepted the offer straight away, a few months later I managed to score half a point higher than him on a physics quiz.
The reason I would recommend Saif to other Superprof members, is his ability to set aside any prejudgment about someone's knowledge in any area. He has a gift in quickly grasping where you're at, and starts from there.

I know Saif from an academic environment where he excelled doing research that merited him a very high-profile PhD from EPFL. During his PhD years, he used to teach several molecular and cell biology courses. Saif's methods of teaching and explaining things are unorthodox and very innovative. His industry in preparation pays off with the great satisfaction his students show during and after class. Saif is skilled in creating figures, and animations and all what it takes to break down difficult concept into something easy to digest. Besides, Saif is cool, calm, and collected and has a unique humbleness. Conclusively, I would recommend Saif as a tutor in a heartbeat not only for his immense knowledge in his subjects, but also for his charming personality.

Nadine

I used to teach Biochemistry classes to Bachelor students together with Saif and I think he is a great teacher. He has a lot of patience and talent to explain complicated topics to students. His way of teaching is very interactive, and he uses powerpoint slides or the blackboard in a creative way, making you understand even the most challenging topics!

Anas

I'm an accountant and I understood some complicated subjects on molecular biology, it may seem impossible, but thanks to Saif explanations, he made it very easy to do. He will find always the best way to transmit the idea, with a lot of drawings and sketch.
I met doctor Saif when he was doing his PhD in Switzerland.
