Hello,

My name is Pejman. I have a Master's degree in Literature, along with additional certificates in both Specialized Reading and Composition. I currently teach English courses at Ohlone Community College. I have had a variety of experiences, with students of different levels and particular purposes.

Although I work quite a bit, I'm looking to get addition work tutoring--writing specifically. If you need help perfecting your essay or written work, please contact me.

I look forward to working together.

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.

CBEST

I received my MA in English Literature. I also have graduate certificates in post-secondary reading and teaching composition--each requiring 12 additional units over the master's degree itself. I took and passed the CBEST last summer. I have tutored in reading comprehension and technical writing for a number of years.

SAT Writing

I received my MA in English Literature from SFSU, along with an accredited certificate in teaching composition. I have tutored technical writing in a variety of disciplines within the humanities, and I am very familiar with the form of SAT exam. I have previously guided tutees toward successfully passing this portion of the SAT.

Sociology

I tutored upper division sociology courses for eight academic semesters, while receiving my own MA. Over the daily exposure to essay topics and departmental assigned readings, I became very familiar with the issues and concepts sociology students must comprehend. I tutored a variety of courses within the discipline, interacting with the professors of specific topics, i.e. sociology of sexuality, class categories, economic systems. I still read sociology books for my own education, and I am familiar with the central theoreticians and models within the history of sociology.
