About Maher


Bio

In less than 3 years of study, I graduated with honors from UC Berkeley in 2012. My coursework focused mainly on Psychology and the Pre-Medical Sciences and Mathematics. My favorite classes were Chemistry, Biology, Physics, Statistics, and Calculus. Over the past 6 years, I have been working as a one-on-one tutor throughout the South Bay, both privately and with several top tutoring companies.

In less than 3 years of study, I graduated with honors from UC Berkeley in 2012. My coursework focused mainly on Psychology and the Pre-Medical Sciences and Mathematics. My favorite classes were Chemistry, Biology, Physics, Statistics, and Calculus. Over the past 6 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. In 2012, I was inducted into Psi Chi, The International Psychology Honors Society. 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

a true "go-to- guy" for tutoring

Maher has been my son's tutor in high school in various subjects since my son was in tenth grade. He has tutored my son in chemistry AP, statistics AP, precalculus H, calculus BC (AP) and physics C (AP). My son has gotten A's in the classes and scored a 4 or 5 on the AP tests in all of the classes that Maher has tutored him in. Maher has been instrumental in helping my son do well in these classes. Maher is very accommodating, available, and without a doubt, knows the subjects extremely well. It goes without saying that he has excellent communication skills which makes him an effective tutor. Because Maher has helped my son excel academically, this helped my son get accepted to his dream school, Northeastern University. I highly recommend Maher for tutoring in various disciplines.

Amazing tutor, very patient.

Maher is an amazing tutor. Math is not my specialty, so taking a summer course is a difficult task for me. Maher has made it so much easier, he is patient with me and really makes sure I understand the material. Best math tutor I’ve ever had.

Jonathan , 4 lessons with Maher

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

I have been working with Maher for a few weeks now. He is a great tutor. He is very knowledgeable and is very patient. He is great to work with. I would recommend Maher as a tutor. He has been incredibly helpful!

Marisa, 62 lessons with Maher

Great R tutor

Maher is very easy to follow and understand. My college level stats 100 course required us to use R, but did not teach us how to use it. I was completely new to R (& R-Studio) and coding, but I was able to learn so much during my first 90 minute session with Maher. I was able to finish my entire assignment during our session as well. I would highly recommend Maher to anyone who needs helping learning how to use R!

Mairead, 9 lessons with Maher

Knowledgeable, nice, and available short notice!

Maher is a fantastic tutor. He is very knowledgeable in chemistry and helped me get an A in my chemistry class at UCLA. He was always available to help even at short notice and the online sessions are great! I highly recommend him for chemistry tutoring!

Kellie, 4 lessons with Maher

Very helpful

Thank you for helping my daughter who told me way too late that she was struggling in her statistics class. She is feeling confident to go to class this week and understand the lesson. I am sure that with your help she will be able to pass the class this semester.

Review about SAT Bio class

Maher is teaching SAT Bio. This is the first time I am taking a class with him. I like his classes. He is very knowledgeable and very passionate about teaching. Looking forward to more lessons with him!

Rajeswari, 5 lessons with Maher

Extremely knowledgeable

Maher was very patient and knowledgeable with sample size calculations. He was a huge help in reviewing data from a project I am working on and challenged me on my position. I thoroughly appreciate that. I look forward to working with him in the future.

James, 1 lesson with Maher

outstanding instruction.

Maher knows it all. He is patient, and makes sure you understand the core issues and subtleties. Maher makes you think while he explains complex concepts. It is a real privilege to be tutored by Maher.
