About Katayoun

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 three years. I am currently a junior at UCI in Neurobiology, Pre-med, and also a member of Campuswide Honors Program there.

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.

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 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 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

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.
