About Maher


Bio

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.

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, multiple monitors, and a 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!

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.

Friendly and Smart

Maher helped me review an entire chapters worth of Statistics material I had been struggling with. He not only showed me how to do it but assisted me in feeling confident to complete the problems on my own.

Thank you Maher

Maher has been very helpful and I see a lot of improvement in my son's approach and strategy, and his understanding of the statistics has increased. Highly recommended!

Dusan, 1 lesson with Maher

Amazing Tutor

Maher goes above and beyond to make sure I understand my Math material. I wouldn’t chose any other tutor! He really cares about his clients and asks me how the test went. One time, I thought I did horrible on one exam and it turns out I got an 83, which put the biggest smile on his face. Shows that he cares about his clients!!

Valentina, 48 lessons with Maher

great chemistry tutor!

Wonderful lesson, worth every penny! Maher is patient and extremely knowledgeable. We look forward to continuing to work with him.

Jessica, 12 lessons with Maher

Extreme Patient & Bright!!

He is able to work very well with my 12 year old son on all subjects, math, science and Spanish. It is so wonderful to have such a nice and smart young man work so well with my son.

Joy, 25 lessons with Maher

Best tutor

I've been taking lessons for college Economics with Maher and it's been so helpful! He's rly nice, and went from knowing nothing to feeling very prepared for my final tomorrow. Literally helped me through the whole course, now I completely understand everything. Very good with explaining all the concepts and will help you until you understand.

Nanda, 21 lessons with Maher

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.

M, 146 lessons with Maher

great tutor

Maher has been just what was needed to help with some gaps in learning, provide study tips and give my son more confidence in himself. The only problem was not starting working with maher sooner in the year. He will be a valuable resource for next year for sure.
