About Arvin

Hi there everybody, my name is Arvin, and I live in Glendale, California. I am 31 years old, and I have studied biology. I received my Bachelor of Sciences degree in Cell and Molecular Biology from Tehran University, which is the best public university in Iran, and I received my Master of Sciences education in Medical Genetics from the same university. I was ranked #2 in the entrance exam for the master's course among 3000 attendants, so I pretty much know the stuff about Biology. What I can do for you, is teaching "General Biology", "Genetics", "Biochemistry", "Chemistry", "Physiology", and other related subjects.

I have had 7 years of teaching and tutoring experience at homes and in institutes. I have had a Teachers Training Course (TTC), which concerns different teaching theories and methods. I have written 3 books on Biology, which contain Testing material (Multiple Choice Questions) and Summary. I can teach High School students as well as College students.

My classes are very friendly, and I hear it from my students all the time that they consider me more of a friend than a tutor. My teaching methods are based on hyperactive learning, which means I check the material with my student every single minute of our class, and therefore I keep my students alert all the time. I will teach you Biology and Chemistry, as long as you WANT to learn Biology and Chemistry!

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.

Basketball

I have been a member of several basketball teams in Iran, including Ararat, I.A.M.M, Charmahal, Assyrian Setare Ashur, and my 2 universities: Tehran University and Tehran University of Medical Sciences. I have had several championships, and I have coaching and training experience to minors and adults as well. I have read a lot of books on coaching, and I have watched some DVDs on individual basketball skills. I can observe a player's positive and negative points fairly easily and can work more on parts which need more work. I also have good knowledge about specific fitness exercises for basketball including vertical jump specialized 4-month programs.

Chemistry

I am a Collegeboard-certified AP Chemistry teacher at a private high school. I have great success rate with my students and tutoring clients alike. I have access to great supplementary material which can aid score higher on the AP test as well as the course.

ESL/ESOL

I have been teaching English as a Second Language (ESL) courses for almost 7 years, either in institutes or at homes. I took a TOEFL test myself and my score was 108 out of 120 (I can demonstrate my report card upon request). I can teach various levels of ESL, from beginners to advanced. I use a lot of extra material to teach English, including story books, cartoons, TV shows, and movies.

Genetics

My major in master of sciences was medical genetics, therefore I know the concepts of genetics very well. I have written 2 books on genetics, which are test preparation multiple choice books covering both the Mendelian Genetics, and the Molecular Genetics. I have had genetics students ranging from high school to post graduate levels, and I can help my students learn how to solve genetic problems, evaluate pedigrees, understand the basic principles of inheritance, details of molecular genetics, various methods used in genetics, and so on.

Organic Chemistry

In my Bachelor's level, I studied a lot of Organic Chemistry courses, so I have good knowledge about Organic Chemistry, various organic materials, their nomenclature, and their reaction mechanisms. In my Organic Chemistry classes I use a lot of models and animations to demonstrate organic molecules,so as to assure that my students grasp the subject well enough.
