About Mahfoud


Bio

Hi! I'm Mahfoud, but most call me Moof, and I have over 10 years of math and science teaching and tutoring experience. In 2013, I graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Biology from University of California, Riverside, where I spent 3 years as a Supplemental Instruction (SI) Leader and Mentor, helping students succeed in a multitude of subjects, including precalculus, trigonometry, calculus, general chemistry, biology, organic chemistry, and biochemistry. Since graduating, I've been tutoring...

Hi! I'm Mahfoud, but most call me Moof, and I have over 10 years of math and science teaching and tutoring experience. In 2013, I graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Biology from University of California, Riverside, where I spent 3 years as a Supplemental Instruction (SI) Leader and Mentor, helping students succeed in a multitude of subjects, including precalculus, trigonometry, calculus, general chemistry, biology, organic chemistry, and biochemistry. Since graduating, I've been tutoring students of all ages in all sorts of math and science courses - from elementary arithmetic and algebra to college- and graduate-level biochemistry. I have also helped many pre-health professional students (including pre-medical, pre-dental, and pre-pharmacy students) succeed on standardized exams like the MCAT, DAT, PCAT, and more!

The most common feedback I receive from my students is that I have a knack for communicating seemingly complex concepts very quickly and very simply, saving them tons of study time. The reason I feel I have had so much success with this is that my teaching method is very unassuming. I start by asking the right questions to quickly assess a student's knowledge and understanding. Afterwards, I begin to fill in any knowledge/understanding gaps in a laser-focused manner, and I address any uncertainties or confusions as soon as they appear. This saves a ton of time, which is an all too precious resource when it comes to completing schoolwork and preparing for exams. Additionally, my approach is focused on achieving an in-depth understanding rather than a surface-level familiarity. Coupling the quick filling of learning gaps and the focus on deep understanding is what students seem to value most, which is why they are my priorities when tutoring!

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask! I would be happy to answer. Cheers!

Test Preparation

MCAT

MCAT

I scored a 518 (96th percentile) overall on the MCAT, with the following sub-section scores: Chemistry/Physics: 130 (97th percentile) Critical Analysis and Reasoning Skills: 129 (95th percentile) Biology/Biochemistry: 131 (99th percentile) Psychology/Sociology: 128 (80th percentile) I have thousands of hours of tutoring experience, with a large portion of those hours focused on helping students with the MCAT, especially the science sections, with MCAT biochemistry being a particular specialty of mine. Many of my MCAT students see significant score increases (in the range of 8-12 points), and many have scored in the 80th+ and 90th+ percentiles. If you are looking to work on increasing your scores on the science sections of the MCAT, chances are I will be of great value to you.

Best chemistry tutor!

Mahoud was one of the most helpful tutors I have worked with! We met once or twice a week to review chemistry (I'm in graduate school). He reviewed all of the information before every session and was incredibly knowledgeable, kind, patient, and prepared. I definitely got good grades because I worked with him & cannot recommend him enough!

Tutor responded:

Thank you so much for the kind words, Emily! You were a model student - always coming to sessions prepared with very specific questions that allowed me to target and tailor my answers to your exact needs. Thank you for being so great to work with, and best of luck to you with your future academic and professional endeavors!

Great teacher even better guy!!

Mahfoud helped me figure out some technical difficulties with the files I was trying to send him and took time out of his day to help me with them for free. During our lesson he gave me exactly what I was looking for even though it was very last minute. He was very patient and explained everything clearly and in a way that got me to understand. I would highly recommend anyone who has any issues with biochemistry to book a lesson with him you won’t regret it.
