I am an adjunct college professor and teach Chemistry and Biology at several local community colleges. I have also taught sciences at high-school level. I hold a master of science degree in Biochemistry from University of Michigan, Ann Arbor and a master of arts in secondary science education from Wayne State University. I have about four years of tutoring experience and I have accumulated many worksheets and exercises during the years that I taught and I can bring them to my lessons. I can prepare you for the MCATS as well.
I am trained in the different subsections of ACT math including algebra, coordinate geometry, plane geometry trigonometry and logic. I have a pool of questions that I have from each subsections and I will work with my students to master each part.
There are three types of passages on the ACT science test: Data representation, research summary and conflicting view points. The questions address three different levels of reasoning namely understanding, analysis and generalization. I will work with my students on how to analyze the data given in each passage and eliminate the obviously wrong answers and chose the right answers.
I teach Biology with hands-on methods. I bring my microscope and set of slides to my lessons or bring the string simulation of chromosomes for my students to help them follow the movement of chromosomes through the different stages of mitosis and meiosis.
I have many worksheets or test questions that I have prepared for my classes and these are available to my students when I tutor them. I emphasize on understanding the concepts. For example I have one mole of Al and Zn and Fe and I bring my scale to my lessons and have my students determine the masses of one mole of these metals to understand the mole concept.
Farsi is my native language. I was born in Tehran and attended high-school through the age of 15 (tenth grade) there. I taught Farsi to my both sons in the Persian school in Ann Arbor and West Bloomfield. I have the book and all the materials to teach Farsi to English speaking students through fifth grade.
I have a Master of Science degree in Biochemistry and and teach Chemistry and Biology in several community colleges. I have worksheets that I have prepared for my classes on the subject of Mendelian genetics and beyond, meaning sex-linked inheritance, co-dominance, incomplete dominance, pleitropy, epistasis, polygenic inheritance. I also have several pedigree analysis problems that I offer my students to understand the genetic pattern in a family.
