About Omid

Dear Students and Parents,

My name is Omid, and I'm a Junior year Human Biology student at University of California, Irvine. In past three years, I have tutored 12 students through Wyzant and 14 students privately, for about 500 hours in different subjects, mainly math (Elementary math, Pre-algebra, Algebra 1 & 2, Pre-calculus) and Chemistry.
Since I am a student as well, I know the points that teachers and professors emphasize on and ask questions of. I have the experience of tutoring kids and teenagers (9-18) and also college level students (18-22), and all age groups groups have been great experiences for me. I believe in a two-way communication between students and tutors, and I think that tutors need to understand how their students learn, and how they can be helped. In order to improve my tutoring skills, I always ask for feedback from my current students, and try to deliver an excellent service that they deserve.
Until sophomore year of high school math always looked complicated for me. However, after thinking and analyzing the problems and questions, math actually started to make sense. That's when I learned math and noticed that I can help other students with the secret of truly learning math.

I also spend a lot of time understanding computers and in years 2010 and 2011, I was ranked number 1 in nationwide computer sciences Olympiads, so I feel comfortable teaching Windows too (I don't teach programming yet).

If you have any questions, feel free to ask me.
I hope you have a great day and good luck.

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 2

I have tutored more than ten other students for algebra 2.

Farsi

I speak Farsi at home, and have previously lived in Iran for 16 years. I also have been to school in Iran for 10 years and have passed Farsi Literature classes with an A. Here in Orange County I have been involved with organizing Persian culture events, and also work as a translator for Persian/Farsi speakers.

My nephew loved him!

Omid has a warm and personable way about him that really sets students at ease. My nephew called me up and raved about him. He is looking forward to his next session with Omid.
