Mehran P. is a very conscientious and patient tutor---the very best I have ever had! I was extremely fortunate to have located him via Wyzant. He is very down-to-earth and approachable. Having earned a Ph.D. and having years of hands-on research experience, has honed his scientific talents into a well-rounded subject-matter expert in molecular biology, biochemistry, biotechnology, etc. His scientific knowledge is so vast, but yet he is very humble---it is remarkable! He is a true genius!!
Tutoring content and tests are focusing on my son's current chapters. Waiting for my son's next real test results to see end results from tutoring.
Mehran keeps me motivated in school. He offers clear explanations, prompt responses and is willing to help as much as he can. I highly recommend him as a tutor and am so glad I found him through WyzAnt!
Mehran is too patient, nice and knowledgeable. He covers topics thoroughly and makes sure you get the concepts. Without him there is no way I can get an A. I would highly recommend him as he is very well qualified. He is the best tutor I have ever had!
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.
