Hi! My name is Farid, and I am a graduate from Cal State Fullerton with a bachelors degree in mathematics and a minor in business administration. I have extensive knowledge in a variety of math subjects, including Algebra II, Pre Calculus, Calculus I - IV, and AP Calculus, plus a myriad of college-level math courses including differential equations, multivariable calculus, linear algebra, and entry level probability and statistics. I have been a math tutor since August 2004 and have tutored every subject listed above, including general chemistry.

I find the most effective teaching methods are those in which the tutor makes every effort to relate to the student's thought processes. I actively listen to my students' needs and work efficiently with them to ensure they are understanding every aspect of a problem. I do not proceed forward with any material until the student has displayed a solid grasp of the problem at hand. This ensures a productive and positive learning environment, and permits the most efficient use of time.

I, myself, had some challenges with math as a high school student, particularly with algebra and calculus. But, thanks to some very patient teachers, I learned and mastered those concepts I had the most difficulty with, and am now able to give back to others through teaching. One of the most helpful approaches in tutoring that I have found is the ability to approach the explanation of a given problem through multiple examples, using different scenarios to help the student gain a better grasp of the subject.

These are the methods I have used throughout my years of tutoring, and they have proved very successful. I have watched my students excel in mathematics and go on to exceptional universities, such as Duke and UCLA. I am confident in the subjects I tutor, and I look forward to helping every student reach his or her fullest potential.

Very patient My son has had Farid for the past two months and I have seen improvement on his grade already. Farid is a very patient tutor and he is the kind that does not give the student the answers right away but, instead, he leads the student to think and guides him to resolve the problems. I think this a great quality to a tutor. Farid is also very flexible on our schedule, he always tries to accommodat ...
