I am currently a high school math teacher with over 15 years of classroom experience. I have also tutored students for over 25 years. I received my BA in pure mathematics from U.C. Berkeley and completed my credential from what used to be called CSU Hayward - now East Bay. I have taught and tutored all levels of high school mathematics from algebra to pre-calculus. In addition, I have tutored in additional areas such as calculus, probability, and linear algebra.
My methodology is to be a coach and allow the student to achieve mastery through guidance rather than supplying all the answers. Many students that have been deprived of a meaningful mathematics education generally experience math injury. My goal is to heal these mental wounds by instilling confidence through motivation and guidance.
The key to math success is not simply drill and check, but understanding each concept through a variety of methods. The student needs to be able to approach the solution from several angles to appreciate the concept. This will give her/him the ability to approach future problems with greater confidence and ease.
I can also coach the student for standardized tests such as SAT or ACT.
Aside from tutoring students in Calculus, Differential Equations and Linear Algebra while in college, as a high school teacher I teach the AP Calculus course which is equivalent to a first semester college course.
I have complete mastery in both Mac and PC computers using MS Word, Excel, and Access as well as AppleWork and Pages. In addition, I I am familiar with linux-based Xfig and java-based jFig drawing programs as well as LaTeX for mathematical typesetting in linux, Windows or Mac.
I am a native speaker/writer of Persian. In addition to studying Classical Persian Prose and Poetry at U.C. Berkeley, I have also taught basic Farsi to elementary level children. In addition, I am credentialed teacher in Mathematics.
I am a professional math teacher with over 15 years of experience in teaching, tutoring and coaching students in geometry, honors geometry and remedial geometry. With just a few sessions, you will gain confidence and understanding of the material.
As a math major, I have taken both the basic course as well as the advanced course in linear algebra. In addition, I have taken 2 semesters of numerical analysis which involves large amounts of linear algebra theory and application.
Besides being a teacher of Geometry, my area of specialization for my undergraduate pure mathematics degree was logic and set theory. I am able to teach and tutor the basic concepts in both logic and set theory, prepositional logic, and axiomatic set theory.
I am a Mac user and as such regularly install and upgrade my system. I can write simple scripts and use the terminal if necessary.
I have complete mastery in AppleWork and some Pages. In addition, I I am familiar with java-based jFig drawing programs as well as LaTeX for mathematical typesetting on the Mac.
In addition to having completed courses in C, C++, Java, Unix Administration Shell Programming, I also studied Pascal, MATLAB, and r on my own before taking an actual Pascal class. I have a sizable library of code in Pascal.
Experience teaching and tutoring math analysis and precalculus at the honors and regular level. Knowledgeable of both necessary material for the course as well as sufficient preparation for the AP calculus class. My goal is to help the student understand the concepts rather than memorize formulas in order to achieve success far beyond the tutoring sessions.
