I am a recent graduate of a master's program in public health concentrating in the biomedical sciences. I have a broad background in biology and chemistry based on coursework and research. I also have training and research experience in statistics, epidemiology, and geography. At a graduate level, I have conducted research both in a laboratory setting and outside of the laboratory, using statistical and geographical methods.

From my own education as well as my teaching experience, I am intimately familiar with the learning process and I know how to help students efficiently work towards their goals.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have worked extensively with children in this age group. For example, I tutored 5th graders in math and reading for one semester. I classroom-taught 2nd graders reading, geography, and math for one month during an internship abroad. I also worked as a camp counselor/instructor with k-6 children for one summer, teaching everything from arts and crafts, to canoeing, to writing.

Farsi

I am fluent in Persian, speaking, reading, and writing as a result of my Iranian heritage and frequent travels to Iran. In addition, I have studied Persian Literature. I was a student for one year at the Persian Language and Literature Institute of the University of Tehran.

Regents

I took the Regents as a public school student. In addition to continuing my studies to the graduate level in many of the regents subjects, I have tutored a high school sophomore in Regents algebra, geometry, and trigonometry.

Soccer

I played club and school soccer from 6 years of age through the end of high school, and have regularly played recreationally ever since.

Social Studies

I was a geography major in college, studying political geography, geography of various parts of the world, historical geography, and more. Currently, as a public health student, I have coursework in health policy. With these combined experiences, I am comfortable with the field of social studies.

Study Skills

I studied for the MCAT exam twice, once independently and once through Kaplan. I have applied study skills that I learned in that process to my graduate studies and now regularly score highest in the class on exams. In addition, I have developed strong study skills through 5 years of higher education in challenging subjects.

Excellent! My Daughters Loved Her. Mina is really terrific for math and science. She started out just tutoring freshman algebra but then she also took on biology. My daughter really enjoyed the sessions with her. A combination of discussion and explanation and then finally the inverse, my daughter explaining it back to her. My daughter's marks improved dramatically. Mina later also tutored my 6th grader in math. Perimeters and area ...
