Hi! I'm Shervin, your potential tutor! Nice to meet you!
Let me tell you a bit about myself.
I was born in Rhode Island. I live in San Francisco. I've traveled to most states in between and many countries outside. Those that know me best would say that I am in love with learning - more on that later. I'm a graduate student working towards a Masters in Physics
, aiming to research theoretical physics on a doctoral level. When I'm not knee-deep in textbooks, you'll find me cycling, rock-climbing, playing guitar
, wiring up electronics, studying chess
, and planning my next adventure.
Why do I tutor?
Well, I love learning! There is a lot to enjoy about this world, and for me, a lot of that enjoyment comes from our human curiosity. We all learn to speak languages, play sports, enjoy music
, study worldly phenomena, explore cultures, and - yes - to teach! In my years as a tutor and teacher, I've found it absolutely nourishing to work with students and to play a role in expanding their frontiers.
I'm passionate about what I do, and I try to convey this spirit when working with students. It's tough to get excited about the SAT
- I know! Or perhaps that essay
on East of Eden just isn't your cup of hot chocolate - I understand. The goal of tutoring is to first get you excited and next get you working.
My role is that of a coach and a team mate. I strive to keep it down to earth while providing a structured framework for success.

Let me describe my tutoring experience.
I started tutoring independently in 2013 and have worked with many happy students and families ever since. As a private tutor, hired teacher, graduate student, and small business
owner, I pride myself on my dedication to education. The following is a sample of my teaching experience.
Starting in 2010, I worked with Revolution Prep, a big name test prep company, for three years, tutoring students primarily in the SF Bay area. I taught in both classroom settings and in private tutoring sessions, arming students against the SAT, ACT
, SAT2, and AP exams, as well preparing them for their high school courses. I worked both in-person and online.
While I now independently tutor, I also work for several groups around the city. My work at these centers consists of SAT tutoring in math
, and writing
, alongside specific subject tutoring for individual students.
This Fall, I will be working at a renown French
American school in San Francisco as a part-time math teacher and SAT class instructor.
Finally, please let me describe my education.
I am currently enrolled in graduate school as a Masters of Physics student with a 4.0 GPA. For my undergrad, I attended University of Rhode Island, triple majored and graduated Magna Cum Laude with a 3.56 GPA. I hold the following degrees: B.S. Supply Chain & Logistical Management; B.S. Entrepreneurial Management; B.A. Psychology
. I also earned a Professional Certificate in Computing Systems from UC Berkeley with a 4.0 GPA.
