About Maher

In less than 3 years of study, I graduated with honors from UC Berkeley in 2012 and was inducted into Psi Chi, The International Psychology Honors Society, in the same year. My coursework focused mainly on Psychology and the Pre-Medical Sciences and Mathematics. My favorite classes were Chemistry, Biology, Physics, and Statistics, though I'm also excellent in Calculus. Over the past 5 years, I have been working as a one-on-one tutor throughout the South Bay, both privately and with several top tutoring companies. During that time, I've tutored everything from elementary to college mathematics and sciences both in-person and using the online tutoring platform. However, I most enjoy and prefer tutoring High School and College students, as my expertise in difficult classes, such as AP and university courses, has proven extremely helpful to my previous and current students.

What makes me a great tutor is my genuine interest in my students' academic success and my individualized tutoring approach for different students and classes. First, I must assess the level of understanding the student currently has before we either start on the lesson or go back to master important material that is needed to move forward. Instead of giving students direct answers to their questions, I ask them several questions of my own designed to guide them to the correct thought processes. Soon enough, the students begin mastering the thought process and gain the confidence and ability to tackle any problems on their own.

I feel my best asset, besides a thorough understanding of the subject material, is my psychology background, which helps me maximize each student's potential. Furthermore, I am familiar with the curriculum of many high schools and universities in the South Bay and Los Angeles areas, and understand what teachers and professors like to test for. I thoroughly enjoy watching a student's face light up when they have mastered a difficult concept and are confident in their work. My favorite thing about tutoring is knowing I have left a lasting impact on a student's academic success. Many of my students enjoy my tutoring style so much that I often work with a student throughout their entire high school or college experience.

I also specialize in online tutoring. Wyzant has an excellent online tutoring platform complete with video chat, whiteboards, text editor, and code editor. Utilizing a stylus and touch screen computer, I quickly and easily write notes and calculations directly onto the screen, which can be saved at the end of the lesson for future reference. Many of my students find online lessons to be easier and more efficient than in-person lessons. I'm also available 24/7 for online lessons for emergency help!

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

I got my start in tutoring helping student's with Algebra 2. I have tutored Algebra 2 at both a high school and a college level.

Calculus

I received an A in Calculus at UC Berkeley.

Chemistry

UC Berkeley Chemistry Courses: 2 semesters of general chemistry, 2 semesters of organic chemistry, and 2 semesters of biochemistry.

Organic Chemistry

I completed 2 semesters worth of Organic Chemistry in UC Berkeley, and got a B in both semesters. Since graduating, I have tutored Organic Chemistry to several different students. However, one particular student I helped weekly throughout a whole semester, which greatly helped me refresh my knowledge and understanding in the class. Though I may not have all the answers on the top of my head, I am excellent at asking the right questions and working together with students to get the correct answer.

Physics

I received an A+ in University Physics at UC Berkeley

Precalculus

I earned an A in Calculus at UC Berkeley

Psychology

I have a BA in Psychology from UC Berkeley

R

In my university statistics courses, I used R extensively to analyze data sets. I am familiar with all of the statistical tests and analyses, and can help identify the situations in which each test is needed. Whether starting with a large data set or a summary of the data, I can help make testing for statistical significance quick and simple.

Statistics

I received an A+ in UC Berkeley Upper Level Statistics Course. I am very familiar with performing the calculations by hand, with a statistical calculator, and with a statistical computer program. I am also excellent at helping students analyze and interpret the results of their statistical tests.

Trigonometry

6 years of experience tutoring Trigonometry

Absolutely wonderful!

I'm a sophomore in college and have been working with Maher for a little under a year in subjects such as Calculus, Statistics, Chemistry, and Life Science Math. He has been beyond helpful and patient, and explains concepts in ways that make the material easier to understand and learn! With his help my grades have improved significantly.
