About Amir

I am currently an undergraduate Computer Science student at UCSD. I am working part-time as a tutor for the Computer Science and Engineer department. I help students in programming languages such as Java, C++, C, and other software tools and technologies such as git, Valgrind, GDB etc. In the past, I have tutored at Moorpark Community College as a student employee where I also taught math and programming.

Being in school gives me a unique ability to connect with other students and understand where they might be struggling and what the best path is to help. I am here to help you become a successful student. I worked very hard to understand how I can learn and once I did I became very efficient at learning the material and reaching my academic goals.

My experience as a tutor for the past four years has allowed me to meet with different students on a daily basis. Because students come from different backgrounds, each of them learns differently. For this reason, I create a customized, unique teaching approach for every student to ensure that I explain the subject in a manner that they can understand. It is an amazing feeling when my students tell me about their success. I would like to help you reach your academic goals and experience the pleasure of being a successful student as well.

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

During my time at community college I was a math tutor for courses such as Algebra 1, 2 and Calculus courses. After transferring to UCSD I became a programming tutor for the engineering department. As a computer science major you never stop taking math classes. I have been an active tutor during my entire college academic career. I feel that as a fellow student I am able to connect more with everyone I tutor since I have had to go through the same process as they are going through right now.

C

I am currently a student at UCSD and I am majoring in Computer Science. I have been tutoring at UCSD for 5 quarters now for subjects such as C. C was the second language that I learned after C++. The class that I currently tutor for rotates the assignments between C, C++, & java. Currently I am taking operating systems class which is also in C.

C++

I am currently a student at UCSD and I am majoring in Computer Science. Before transferring to this university I attended Moorpark Community College, where I took 3 courses in C++. I was also a tutor for our math center where I tutored math and C++. I also have done C++ workshops for the community college. The workshops ranged from 1-3 hours and had between 20-26 students attend. For these workshops I desined the lesson plan and came up with strategies on how to conduct them, since I was the first student at Moorpark College to do workshops for C++.

Computer Programming

I am currently a student at UCSD and I am majoring in Computer Science. I have been tutoring at UCSD for 5 quarters now for subjects such as C, C++, Java, Python. C was the second language that I learned after C++. The class that I currently tutor for rotates the assignments between C, C++, & java. Currently, I am taking operating systems class which is also in C.

Java

I am currently a fourth year computer science student at UC San Diego. I have been tutoring programming for three years now. For the past five quarters I have been tutoring for a data structures course which includes Java C and C++.

Python

I am currently a student at UCSD and I am majoring in Computer Science. I have been tutoring at UCSD for 5 quarters now for subjects such as Python. I have recently completed a course in Python and have been tutoring for it for the past 2 quarters.

Great tutor

Amir tutored my daughter in algebra/trig. He was very knowledgeable and helpful. He was also punctual. I would definitely request him again!
