I have tutored in Los Angeles area for the past ten years in math and physics at all levels. I am UCLA graduate with a B.S. in physics. I am planning to get my PhD in mathematics with emphasis on finance. My specialty is one-to-one tutoring.
I like to start the session by completing the lecture which was given in the class to make sure that the student has a full grasp of the subject; then, I solve a sample problem for the student, and design a similar one for her, so she can get involved in the problem solving procedure. As the session continues, I design harder problems for the student, and finally, we will target the homework problems.
Communication is very significant in tutoring. Each person can master the subject matter, but has to be taught slightly differently. As a result, I use different tactics with different students. I have worked with clients from many different mathematical backgrounds from elementary all the way to advanced. As far as the test prep goes, I make a sample test for the student from the homework problems covered in the test, and I give him a certain amount of time to do the test; then, we'll go over her mistakes together. I always make sure that the student can reason out the steps to get to the final solution. The key is for my client to become independent of me, and rely on herself, and be able to use logical reasoning.

Sina was a great tutor for me. I had difficulties with Calculus I & II and he helped me learn many methods that class did not teach me to solve problems. He listened very well and was able to solve even the most difficult problems. He was very good at diagnosing my weak spots and helping me while staying supportive when I made my errors.
The hardest part of my class was understanding trig proofs using limits. He was able to take them apart and make them less complex for the sake of my understanding.
Sina is an excellent tutor with a broad range of knowledge. He's patient and knows everything there is to know about the upper level sciences! He's been tutoring my brother with AP Chemistry for a while now and it has made a great improvement in his grades at school. Thank you, Sina!
Sina has been a great asset for our son's knowledge. He is very patient, detailed and we have seen great results based on his tutoring skills for SAT exams for our son.
I have referred to two other friends just recently as finding a great tutor with both knowledge and patience and care is a true challenge for a caring parent.
Sina is also very prompt with his communication and scheduling of the times.
Thank you Sina!!!
When my son started having trouble in Calculus, I hired Sina to tutor him. So glad that I did!!
Sina explained everything in depth, was patient and answered all of his questions.
Sina is a true professional. He is patient, understanding, prompt, and knows his subject. The help I needed him for was college, not high school level physics. He was able to help me study for tests and with my homework, that is, figure it out and help explain it, not do it for me. I am certain that his professionalism would be the same for students younger that I am. I highly recommend him.
Sina has tutored both of my children in math (Geometry and Algebra II) and science (Chemistry and Physics) for about one year. Thanks to Sina's help, both of my children have received high grades in these subjects. Sina always puts in extra effort to make sure they understand the concepts, but above and beyond this, helps them with their science projects. My son is taking Applied Physics this year, and has had to build a ping pong ball launcher and two musical instruments. Not only did Sina help him with the mathematics involved in designing these projects, he also helped my son actually BUILD the projects. As a single mother with minimal mechanical ability, I was extremely grateful that Sina was willing to roll up his sleeves and help with the construction of these projects. I highly recommend Sina as both a science and mathematics tutor.
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.
I have a B.S. in Physics from UCLA and 10 years of tutoring experience.
Differential equations was a required subject for me to complete my degree in theoretical Physics at UCLA. As a physicist, I have encountered many forms of differential equations in my subject area. Many problems in Physics involve solving complex differential equations. I am very competent in solving them. I have tutored some students in differential equations, and have had great results.
I have taken finite math at UCLA during my undergrad studies. I have done extensive linear programming using the simplex method taught in the finite math class to do research in vortex and turbulence fluid mechanics in soft condensed matter physics. I have used concepts from other topics such as matrices which are covered in finite math class in my quantum mechanics classes as well. I have also used the logic chapter of finite math to design logic circuits. Overall, I am very proficient in the material covered in the finite math class.
Since I have studied Physics at UCLA, Geometry is one of those subjects that I have constantly been exposed to. I have worked with many people in Geometry. The key is to make the subject understandable for the student, so They can get a sense of visualizing the geometrical objects.
I prepared for the GMAT exam when I was planning to get into an MBA program. I have reviewed all sections in details through prep books. The math covered in GMAT is basic since I graduated in sciences.
I have taken Linear Algebra back in college as it is a requirement for students who want to study Physics. At UCLA where I studied Physics, we used many concepts such as linear combinations, groups, and vector spaces to attack problems in Physics. I have tutored some of my students in Linear Algebra, and I am very familiar with the concepts.
My degree is in theoretical Physics from UCLA. As a result, I have taken many courses in Quantum Mechanics, Electromagnetism, and Classical Mechanics. I have tutored in these areas to numerous students. Physics is my specialty.
I had taken Prealgebra back in middle school. I studied elementary equations and how to handle them.
I took precalculus in high school as a prerequisite of my calculus class. We studied basic functions and their behavior in that class. I have extensive experience working with functions and their analysis.
I have tutored SAT math to many clients, and prepared them for the exam. I have graduated from UCLA with a B.S. in Physics. I have studied advanced mathematics, and my students have had great results in SAT math.
Sina Z. passed a background check on 4/20/14. The check was ordered by Sina through First Advantage. For more information, please review the background check information page.
After sending a message to Sina, you will be able to order a new background check for $7.99. As part of your tutor selection process, we encourage you to run updated background checks. Please also review the safety tips for hiring tutors.
