About Mehdi

I have obtained my teaching knowledge during my Ph.D as well as my postdoctoral fellowship where I worked with scientists in chemistry and engineering schools at the University of Akron. To me, teaching provides an opportunity for continuing the learning process that would certainly help me in my own research work too where I need a deep knowledge of physics, chemistry, and mathematics.
I performed chemistry related research during my Ph.D and postdoc at the University of Akron. I studied the photo-catalytic properties of metal oxide semiconductors that are important materials for conversion of sun light to electricity. In my research work I used chemistry, physics, and mathematics as fundamental tools to design complex systems and experiments to explore new materials. My ability to communicate with the students on a hands-on fashion makes me a great tutor and will provide the students a learning style that can help them attack science problems based on their critical thinking and independent learning.


Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Calculus, Differential Equations, Geometry, Trigonometry, Physics (all subjects), Chemistry, AP Courses.
Chemical Engineering subjects: Stoichiometry, Fluid dynamics, Reaction Engineering, Process Design, Process Economics, Heat Transfer, Chemistry I and II.

I enjoy encouraging my students to think about the problems in a passionate fashion and try to learn based on their own talents and develop or create new ways to understand the scientific challenges while proposing methods for solving them. I believe in “systematic thinking” in which the problems break down into simple pieces but “not simpler” where there is not enough information to process.
My goal is to provide a learning style for students so that they can leave the tutoring session with pure understanding of the theoretical and experimental aspects. I have a unique teaching style that is essential for getting good grades and for learning the core topics. Students! Don't miss out this opportunity!

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.

Calculus

Math specially Calculus is my strongest science background. Because it is the tool I have to be a master in to be successfully in analyzing complex engineering problems.

Chemical Engineering

I have obtained my teaching knowledge in chemical engineering during my Ph.D as well as my postdoctoral fellowship where I worked with scientists in chemistry and engineering schools at the University of Akron and California state university fullerton. To me, teaching provides an opportunity for continuing the learning process that would certainly help me in my own work too where I need a deep knowledge of physics, chemistry, and mathematics.
I performed chemistry and chemical engineering research during my Ph.D and postdoc at the University of Akron.
I studied the photo-catalytic reactions and properties of semiconductors that are important materials for conversion of sun light to electricity.
I have published several research articles in top-ranked chemical engineering journals that puts a spot-light on my capabilities to teach chemical engineering topics such as process design, reaction engineering, stoichiometry, and transport phenomena.

Chemistry

I am a chemical engineer Ph.D. who used his drive and passion in chemistry, physics, and math in everyday life as an energy researcher.

Physics

I use physics and chemistry every day as I work in an energy research lab.

Good tutor. — From the moment we sat together, we felt comfortable. He is easy to talk to and he knows his material very well. He has easy ways to deliver a complete message. After one time of being with him, I scored a B on my calculus test. That was a big deal for me. He is patient and he has passion for what he is doing. I do recommend Mehdi for anyone who needs tutoring. ...
