I am the father of three children and live in McLean, VA. I have a Bachelor's degree in Computer Science and a PhD in Applied Mathematics. I have published a number of research papers about computer science, mathematics and the teaching of children in the highly ranked international journals, such as Discrete Math, Applied Math, etc. I was selected one of the top 200 tutors in the U.S.A in 2011. I worked as a committee member and chairman of several international conferences, such as IEEE.

I have more than 17 years of experience with teaching mathematics in the United States, Japan and China. I have a unique teaching philosophy for mathematics. I enjoy teaching and helping students understand math in depth.

If you have any questions for me, I will be happy to answer them. If you think you might be interested, please contact me, so that we can plan a session. I look forward to hearing from you!

Talifu is an excellent tutor for my son who is taking Multi-variable Calculus. Talifu does a great job explaining information. We highly recommend him.

Michele, thank you so much for the feedback. It is very helpful for my business, I really appreciate it.

Mr. Talifu tutored my son in Honors Algebra 2 for almost a year. Not only is he very knowledgeable in math, he has a special talent for making tough topics easy to understand. My son improved rapidly and consistently over the 7 months he tutored him, raising his grade from a B- to an A, and more importantly, gaining self confidence in how to tackle algebra problems and do well on tests. Talifu is very positive and encouraging of the student's efforts, but at the same time he sets the bar high and prods them to reach for it. I feel fortunate to have found him in my son's first year of high school and I intend to call on him for future math courses as needed. I tell all of my son's friends about him as I truly believe he is quite an asset to his students. Highly, highly recommended.

I needed a calculus tutor for the summer, since I had done terribly in class. Talifu managed to teach me a whole semester of Calculus in a month. He's very patient, and makes the subject easy to understand. 5/5!

Dr. Talip is a talented mathematics teacher. He has a PhD in mathematics and no wonder he is a champion in mathematics. Dr. Talip has a wonderful rapport with students of all ages. His ability to connect with the students and his talent at teaching simple mathematical concepts, as well as more advanced topics such as Algebra, Trigonometry, and Calculus are truly superior. He is extremely organized and reliable. He is very patient and describes complex concepts in a simple way with good examples. This enables any student who is frustrated with math to have a wonderful learning experience. My son’s understanding of math and his grade has improved drastically since he started working with Dr. Talip. Most importantly, my son’s confidence level and test taking skills have also improved noticeably. We are fortunate to have found Dr. Talip as my son’s math tutor and we will continue to take lessons from him throughout high school.

Father of a Tenth grade student.

Talifu A. Is the best high school higher mathematics tutor our daughter has ever had. His dedication and qualified approach to the subject is unsurpassed. My daughter has maintained an A in her class and is confident in her understanding of the fast paced curriculum. Talifu puts my daughter at ease but at the same time challenges her constantly. We as a family feel his high success rate with his students is well earned.

Dr. Talifu is an excellent and patient tutor. He displayed a deep interest in our daughter’s success. He is also a very experienced tutor, even my daughter tends to be quiet, he knows how to engage her in discussions, taking the time to learn her strengths and weaknesses, and tutored her on ways to overcome her flaws. He never misses the chance to encourage and challenge her to put forth her best effort in her endeavors. Being very knowledgeable, he can take any question that my daughter has to present the way that my daughter can quickly and fully understand. He has everything you look for as an excellent tutor. My daughter has 5 classes with him so far and will continue to have him to be her math tutor. Yes, he is highly recommended.

Hi Talifu, just wanted to let you know I passed my Praxis II math exam. I increased my score by 15 points. Thanks for all the help and pointers!

Talifu is a very good tutor. He has a very clear understanding of the concepts of math, and his ability to convey and teach ideas of math are very good. His ability to express the concepts of math makes him an effective tutor and a helpful teacher. Our son's grades in math at school (as well as his math scores on standardized tests) have improved substantially while being tutored by Talifu over the better part of this past year.

I just found out this morning that I passed the Praxis test! Thanks so much for all your help.

Our son who is in the eighth grade taking Algebra I intensified, has been tutored by Talifu A. since September 2010. Talifu has been prompt every single Sunday morning at 11:45 without fail. He is reliable, trust worthy and extremely dependable. We have been honored to have such an amazing knowledgeable tutor for our son. Our son has excelled in his coursework throughout the year. He has earned high A's for the past three quarters. Talifu, reviews the past weeks work or exam, and then prepares our son for the upcoming lessons. He has a vast knowledge of mathematics. He is superior in his ability to convey methods and techniques to enable problem solving. He one of the most polite people I have ever encountered in my life. I highly recommend Talifu without any reservation. Thank you

Mr. Talifu is extremely good at what he does. He has truly transformed how I view mathematics. In previous years, I used to struggle through math, yet under Mr. Talifu’s tutoring, I have become the top student in my class. He is very involved throughout the lesson, and genuinely wants you to succeed. There has never been a moment where Mr. Talifu was not able to teach the material in a clearer and more effective way than what I learned in school. He has the ability to take a seemingly complex problem or formula, and explain it in such a way that it becomes second nature to you. In summary, Mr. Talifu is an extremely first-class tutor!

Even though Talifu is light years beyond Algebra 2 in his math skills, he tutors it like that is what he does all day. He is very soft spoken, polite and is willing to adjust his schedule on short notice. He speaks with a heavy accent so some English words are tough for him to say but overall I understand him. He is an excellent tutor.

My son has struggled in mathematics for the past three years. He has had great difficulty in seeing the big picture and applying concepts. He was always grumpy and basically hated mathematics until we selected Talifu to tutor him. My son is a changed person. His grades in math have begun to improve dramatically. He converses about mathematics and has begun to smile when we discuss math. I could never truly express in words what Talifu has meant to my son. He truly has changed my son's life. We are so incredibly grateful! Talifu takes the time to explain material, provide examples, and encourage the practice of problems. He not only explains the basic concepts but explains the importance of learning a concept or formula. He is incredibly patient and always has a kind word to say to my son. My son actually looks forward to the tutoring sessions. Talifu is the best.
