Hi everyone,

My name is Matt, and I recently graduated from UCLA with a master of science in civil engineering. My undergraduate study was also at UCLA, and I received a bachelor's degree in electrical engineering, minoring in mathematics. I have been doing private in-home tutoring in all areas of mathematics and physics for the past six years. I possess excellent knowledge of providing customized tutoring services to students. My ability to work with students and parents in order to find out their weakest points and the aspiration to work towards providing strengthening services has been commended many times. Moreover, I possess a positive attitude and a passion to assist struggling learners. I enjoy tutoring students and helping them build confidence in their ability to achieve, both academically and socially. As a highly motivated and experienced tutor with a strong background in providing professional tutoring services to students with diverse backgrounds, I have the ability to exceed your expectations. I am confident that my strong desire to help students achieve their goals will go a long way in providing quality services. During the past several years of my tutoring profession, I have developed effective techniques to aid students understand difficult concepts. All my students have expressed an increase in their confidence and understanding of the subjects immediately after our first session. I would guarantee the same result for you right after our first lesson. I just got admitted to the PhD program and that has left me a lot of free time. Therefore, I have decided to take on more students. My regular hourly rate that I charge most of my students is $60/hour, but I have decided to offer a special rate to attract more students. If you book a session with me at this rate, you will be benefiting from this special rate throughout the rest of our future sessions.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

ACT Math

I have taught the Mathematics portion of the ACT numerous times in the past, to groups and individuals. I go over the content and the math needed to understand. Throughout, I discuss solving strategies with the student, so that they understand what to expect and how to approach the questions.

Algebra 1

Algebra 1 provides the basic building blocks for all of the higher high school math classes. I help students master these basic principles: variable equations, inequalities, absolute value, slope, slope-intercept form, polynomials, quadratic equations, exponents and radicals. Plus the dreaded word problems. Learning these basic principles well from the beginning will give students a strong foundation for the rest of their high school careers.

Algebra 2

For some students, algebra 2 marks the end of their high school career; for others, it's just a stepping stone to other higher Math classes; and for a third group, it's a refresher class at college. But no matter the reason, the objective is clear... to pass the class. I help students navigate through factoring, the Quadratic Formula, complex roots, imaginary numbers, matrices, exponents, logarithms, radicals, series & sequences, and conic sections (hyperbolas, ellipses, and circles).

Calculus

Calculus is the building block for all the engineering classes and upper division math classes. If you major in engineering you will see that everything you have learned so far in your algebra or other math classes were taught to you so you can apply them in calculus. Calculus may look very scary to those who have problems with the basic concepts of derivative and integral. But I employ some tutoring methods that will make calculus a fun subject for you.

Civil Engineering

I have a bachelor of science in electrical engineering from UCLA. But my master's study was in civil engineering. And I received a master of science in civil engineering (structural engineering) from UCLA. I was an honor student throughout my entire graduate as well as undergraduate study and I am sure that my background in civil engineering would qualify me to be a tutor in this subject.

Electrical Engineering

I have a bachelor of science in electrical engineering from UCLA. My master's degree is in civil engineering but I have recently started a PHD program in electrical engineering at UCLA again. I was an honor student throughout my entire undergraduate study and I am sure that my background in electrical engineering would qualify me to be a tutor in this subject.

Geometry

Geometry is a very different subject compared to other branches in mathematics and can often make even the brightest math students stumble. I have a lot of experience teaching this subject and I will make Geometry very easy for you, whether it is with angles, lines and triangles in first semester or surface areas, volumes, and circles in second semester.

Physics

Physics is the application of all the math subjects that we study at school in real life. Sometimes students suffer in their physics classes because they don't know how to approach the problems. The way I tutor physics has made concepts very easy for my students. All that has to be done to solve a problem is as follows: write down all the formulas from the summery of each chapter on a piece of paper. Make sure you understand what all the variables and constants represent and understand the units. From then on it will just be plugging in numbers into equations. Of course finding the write equation to use is very essential. But after solving a few problems for a given chapter, it will become an easy task. You will be amazed how some concepts that you never thought you would understand, would become so easy and clear after having a few sessions.

Prealgebra

I help students develop their skills and strong foundation in Math that they will need during their high school years and beyond. I cover the introduction to variables, factoring, inequalities, graphing, and absolute values.

Precalculus

I help precalculus students develop the strong fundamentals of Math that they are going to need in Calculus. I review the six Trigonometric functions and their graphs, logarithms. I also cover complex numbers and polar coordinates. Finally, I preview limits and derivatives that will form the basis of Calculus.

Probability

Probability is one of those subjects that are black and white. Some students seem to have no sense of the concepts in probability. I was always one of those students who found this subject fun. I can break down the concepts for you to very simple parts and once it is all put together you will appreciate the beauty of probability and its broad application in real life. Once you get good at this subject not only your grades would improve, but you will also be applying it to many situations in your personal life, and it will definitely help your decision makings as well.

SAT Math

I have taught the Mathematics portion of the SAT numerous times in the past, to groups and individuals. I go over the content and the math needed to understand. Throughout, I discuss solving strategies with the student, so that they understand what to expect and how to approach the questions.

Trigonometry

With Trigonometry, it is common that students feel lost, because they haven't understand the basics of trigonometry, that is what the six trigonometric functions Sin, Cos, Tan, Sec, Csc, and Cot mean. Once that is fully understood, rather than just memorizing the values of these functions for different angles, the rest would be surprisingly easy. I also cover graphing functions of the form y=A func [B(x+c)] + D and how to interpret the graph. In addition, I review Law of Sines, Law of Cosine, half angle and double angle formulas, and Pythagorean Identities. I find it amazing how some of my past students who hated trigonometry now find it as one of their favorite subjects in math.

Absolutely the best tutor ever! — I had a tutoring session with Maham for the AP and Honors classes. I felt he was very knowledgeable and explained everything very thoroughly allowing me to see what I needed to work on. Maham's understanding of difficult subjects is amazing in itself. Even more amazing is his ability to help others understand difficult subjects with it, making every lesson fun and interesting!!! ...
