Nothing can be more rewarding than seeing a student improve and knowing that you have made a difference in his/her life, making learning a joy not a responsibility.

I have been tutoring college and high school students for chemistry, biology and math for more than five years. I have a B.S. from UCI in Neurobiology and will start medical school in UCSD in the fall of 2018.

Nothing can be more rewarding than seeing a student improve and knowing that you have made a difference in his/her life, making learning a joy not a responsibility.

I have been tutoring college and high school students for chemistry, biology and math for more than five years. I have a B.S. from UCI in Neurobiology and will start medical school in UCSD in the fall of 2018.

During my education, I have had great professors who made me feel the subjects, not memorize them; and I am doing my best to do the same for my students. As a tutor, I use different methods to teach each student, as every one is unique and using the same method for every one is not effective. For most of the lessons I would try to help my students visualize and understand the material rather than memorizing them; therefor, my students usually remember what they have learned for a relatively long time.

I believe in each and every one of my students' success, and so far, they have shown me that I have not been wrong.

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

I have tutored Algebra both as a private tutor and the district's tutor at Irvine Valley College. Working at the college helped me gain valuable experiences in finding the most effective ways of explaining the concepts to the students, such that they can apply the ideas to any question no matter how it is presented.
Biology,

Biology

Biology is my major and what I have truly the passion for. From basics of the biological theories to the deepest concepts of genetics and human biology, I can help the students to gain a deep understanding, not just for a course, but for a life time.
Chemistry,

Chemistry

I have tutored students in high school and college level for more than 4 years now. For me, chemistry is all about concepts not memorization, and that is what I believe I should show my students, too. This method has worked so well for me, I could help a student who had a D for more than half a semester, end up with a high B.

Knowledgeable, patient and thorough

Katayoun was extremely effective at teaching the material. Looking forward to working with her again. She has a patient demeanor, capable of explaining complicated concepts from a basic level up until thoroughly understood.

Outstanding Tutor

Miss Katayoun is very patient and has amazing knowledge of math. We had many math tutors (high school math teacher, college math teacher) before her. No one was as qualified as Miss Katayoun! She is very trustworthy and always on time. My sons enjoy her tutoring and have improved their grade.

Great tutor! Extremely committed!

Wonderful tutor! Always on time! Katayoun will do everything possible to help my daughter understand AP Chem! She is very good at tutoring and helping with concepts. She allows my daughter to text her with any questions she may have and responds promptly. Highly recommend this tutor!

Thank you Kayla for your kind words! Your daughter is a wonderful, talented girl and I am glad to have the opportunity to be a small part in her journey toward a successful future, which she truly deserves!

Knowledgeable, patient, kind, responsive to email

Katayoun met my daughter and secured a quiet study area where she patiently and thoroughly reviewed material for her Algebra 2 quiz. She responds quickly to emails and I would recommend Katayoun as a math tutor. The score on my daughter's math quiz was 100 percent correct!
