About Armen

I started to study chemistry in 2009 in University of Tehran. Seeing the powerful and colorful face of Science through chemistry made me sure that I am willing to become a chemist, one who has the power to turn substances to each other, synthesis new ones and flip them from color to color. Chemistry also induced a more logical and realistic way of thinking in my mind which helped me in making my decisions. I started to tutor chemistry and math to high school students and then freshmen and sophomores in my second year of study and realized that I have the ability to become a teacher or a professor in future. Gaining knowledge and then transferring it to the others made me feel like a valuable member of my society who is able to make a difference.I also learned (and I'm still learning) so much from my students. The exchange of knowledge,ideas and thoughts made tutoring a very enjoyable job for me and It made me tend to always bring my best as a tutor.

After being graduated as an applied chemist and after passing the national entrance exam I got accepted in University of Tehran's nano-chemistry graduate program but one year later I moved to U.S and pursued my a graduate degree in organic chemistry.

Now after teaching and tutoring chemistry in two different languages in two different continents for more than 6 years and helping tens and hundreds of students to get the grade they deserve and pursue their academic dreams I still enjoy my job and do it with even more passion and gusto and I am happy that I can teach and at the same time learn so much from my students.

I usually teach my students to find the simplest and the most logical way to approach and solve a problem. In tutoring, what works is the one-to-one relationship between the student and tutor. With only one person to focus on, tutors can try a variety of teaching techniques in order to work out the most effective way of helping the student understand a topic. My experience shows that using touchable and real examples usually helps students to relate to the concept in an easier way, in other words, examples work as a hub to transfer and imprint the knowledge from tutor's mind to student's mind.

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.

Chemistry

I have a B.Sc in applied chem and an M.S student of organic chem. I have taught General chemistry 1, general chemistry 2, organic chemistry 1, organic chemistry 2. With more than six years of tutoring and teaching experience in general and organic chemistry I have a full grasp on each and every concept, I know what parts to emphasize and most importantly I know how teach and transfer my knowledge to my students.
