Dear Students and Parents,

My name is Omid, and I am a graduate of the University of California, Irvine, with a major in Biological Sciences. Throughout the past five years, I have tutored many students through Wyzant's platform and many more privately, for about 2600 hours in different subjects. I specialize in tutoring Physics, Chemistry, Bio, and Math (all in University and High school levels).

It's noteworthy to mention that I scored in the 99th percentile for the Chemistry/Physics portion of the MCAT (Medical College Admission Test), and 90th percentile for Biology/Biochemistry.

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 (18-24), and all age groups have been great experiences for me. I believe in 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 my sophomore year of high school math always looked complicated for me. However, after thinking and analyzing the problems and questions, the math actually started to make sense. I learned to understand what the questions are asking, and I love helping other students reach the same understanding. That's when I learned math and noticed that I can help other students with the secret of truly learning math.

As for the sciences (physics, chemistry, bio, etc), I try to deliver the material in a way that students only memorize minimal info, and learn the rest. I do not believe in pure memorization, and try to connect the subject matter with everyday experience, so the students can have a better understanding.

I also spend a lot of time understanding computers and in the years 2010 and 2011, I was ranked number 1 in nationwide computer sciences Olympiads, so

AP Physics

Excellent tutor. He was very good and explained everything in a way that made a lot of sense , using understandable examples. He also made sure to check in a few times to see if his teaching style was fitting with how I learned. Overall, I feel like the session with Omid helped a lot and improved my understanding on the concepts we covered.

Nadia, 1 lesson with Omid

Great teacher!

Over a very short period of time Omid has helped my son go from a low B in Chemistry to an A. My son is taking pride in his considerable progress. I've noticed he is less stressed with chemistry and that this is carrying over to his semester in general. Omid is a very effective and skilled tutor and I highly recommend him!

Susan, 29 lessons with Omid

Patient and knowledgeable

Omid worked with my daughter to help her prepare for a physics test. She really enjoyed working with him. He was great at explaining the concepts and making sure she had a good understanding of the material! I highly recommend him!

Natalie , 1 lesson with Omid

Great tutor!

Omid helped my daughter review her SAT Math II test. She was doubting her self but after session with Omid Amerys feel confident and she got a really good advice from Omid. She came away inspired and happy. Great work and Thank you!

Irina, 1 lesson with Omid

Knowledgeable, patient and helpful

My high school aged son worked with Omid for one semester on Geometry and Chemistry. My son gained confidence in his work and was able to raise his overall grade in each course from a C to a B. My son looks forward to continuing to work with Omid on Algebra II.

Pam, 59 lessons with Omid
