About Antoine Ata

I am a coach at heart and by trade. I have left a long and successful high tech career developing software for semiconductor capital equipment manufactures, where I worked on real time applications and robotics programming. I now try to follow my heart and passion for coaching, teaching and training others, to make a difference in people's lives, and creating more meaning in my own. I have a young child, and I participate in his education and upbringing very actively, by assisting in the co-op school that we have set up with other parents in Fremont.

When I was a student, I was asked by my math and English teachers to tutor my peers, and worked as a math tutor to earn extra money throughout college. During my graduate years, I worked as a teacher's assistant, and taught high school computer programming prep classes. Having been at the top of my classes all the way through high school, I appreciate the importance of hard work and a good education is the foundation to anyone's future. And while different people have different aptitudes, I believe that we all learn better when we connect with and appreciate our teachers. The hallmark of my work as a tutor is keeping things light and fun, being patient, respectful and compassionate for each student's pace and style of learning. I am a staunch believer in teamwork, and help bring home difficult topics by offering various perspectives and explanations.

I am happy to travel to your home, or nearby public places if that is more convenient.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

Algebra 2

Algebra is one of my favorite subjects for tutoring. I focus on underlying principles to make it easy to remember them.

Career Development

I am a certified CoActive coach through Coaches Training Institute. I am also certified by the International Coaching Federation. I am trained to work with individuals to clarify their priorities, get in touch with their life's purpose and passion, and explore their career options by accessing deeper values and principles. I am also trained as a psychotherapist, though not licensed by the State of CA.

Farsi

I was born in Iran, and completed my high school there from the best high school in the country, Alborz. I have spoken the language all my life, and read and write Farsi fluently.

While living abroad, I have kept close ties with the Persian community, and have been involved in cultural programs, taken educational courses that has been offered by educators, artists, musicians, and literature scholars. I have frequently presented workshops in Farsi for members of the Persian Center, located in Berkeley.

While I made a career in engineering and sciences, I have always loved poetry, and enjoy writing poems in Farsi. I own a large library of books written in Farsi, and have been involved in translating poetry and lyrics from Persian to English for a number of years. I have also aided in translating legal documents in the past.

I have a love for coaching, mentoring and teaching in general. I am currently teaching Farsi to my young child.
