Hi, my name is Ayaz Malik and I am currently a senior at CSUF. I’m majoring in Business Administration with an emphasis in accounting. After I graduate, I want to pursue my Master’s in Accounting and eventually get my CPA license. I transferred from IVC last year after spending a year there. I love sports, especially basketball. Also, I’ve seen pretty much every TV show there is on Netflix. I have taken ISDS 361A and 361B with Professor Newby at the Irvine Center, and I did well in both classes. Hopefully, I can be of help for students that are having trouble understanding the subject.

Hi, my name is Alena and I'm a graduate student at CSUF majoring in Statistics. I got my Bachelor's degree in Risk Management in Russia.

My name is Samantha Jenny. I graduated at Oregon State University in spring 2018 with my Bachelors in Mathematics and minor in Actuarial Sciences. I am currently enrolled in the CSUF Mathematics (Teaching Option) Graduate program. Some of my favorite math subjects include algebra, trigonometry, and combinatorics. I tutor most lower division mathematics courses, like algebra, precalculus, and calculus. Fun facts about me: I am a huge animal lover. I have two rescue dogs, an Akita Inu and a Rhodesian Ridgeback mix. I also like to make wheel thrown pottery when I am not busy. I am looking forward to working on math problems with you!
