I am an experienced engineering professional with a BSEE degree (Bachelor's of Science in Electronics Engineering) who tutors math, computer, and many other subjects in the evenings and on weekends. My experience in the technical field spans over 35 years. I have two daughters, 24 and 28 years old. The older one, Stephanie, graduated from UCLA with honors and a Psychobiology degree. She graduated from University of San Antonio, Texas and is currently a resident intern of surgery in urology at a Medical Center in Southern California. The younger one, Natalie, graduated from Ayala High School in Chino Hills with a 4.6 GPA with all AP courses and from UCI with a Civil Engineering degree. She is currently working as a Civil Engineer for one of the top ten engineering / construction companies in the world in Southern California. I enjoy working with students and helping them achieve their highest potential. Patience and perseverance are my two most significant virtues.

I started my teaching work when I was attending college as a teacher's aide at Los Angeles public schools and taught math and English to foreign students. At that time I expanded my teaching to fellow classmates and other students of less senior rank in college. This trend continued after I graduated and entered the workforce. As part of my duties in my jobs at companies such as Hewlett Packard, etc., I taught highly sophisticated state of the art and technical courses to our clients' personnel.

Of course, it goes without saying that I helped my own two daughters achieve the level of success they are currently enjoying.

If you are looking for a tutor who can put the most complex concepts in the simplest terms and help you grasp the subject matter please contact me.

Microsoft Excel

Microsoft Excel

For decades, I have had to use Excel at my work. This usage progressively increased as I moved up the corporate ladder and assumed higher management and directorate positions in High-Tech companies. Since using Excel has become second nature to me I can easily and effectively teach it to whomever needs to become proficient at it including developing complex formulas and logical expressions in Excel calculation.

Elementary Education

Reading

Reading

As a student of English as a second language, I had to put much more effort into learning how to read in English and improve my vocabulary than an American native would. As such, I can provide a reading student a much richer insight into reading and comprehension than a native can. Throughout my career I have had to hone my reading skills as I continually read news publications and technical journals.

English

English

I learned English as a second language. As such, my insight into the structure and nature of this language has been very different from an American native. As a person who was interested in learning this language and lived to master it so that there would be no trace of an accent in his speech and no trouble writing the most complex essays, be it literature or technical, I gave it my all. Subsequently, as I took on high level technical and managerial positions in my engineering field I was able to use my garnered skills in giving technical lectures, and executive presentations without anyone detecting that this was a second language for me. As a result, my view and understanding of the English grammar are much more acute and succinct than those of a native. Because of this, I am able to teach it much better because I know exactly what the student is experiencing since I did it myself.

Homeschool

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

My major area of concentration, starting early on in high school, was mathematics. I excelled in it and enjoyed it. It was a major determinant in my choice of college major and ultimately building a career in Electrical / Electronics Engineering. As such, Algebra 1 ranks among the easiest math subjects to teach for me since it is one of the basic building blocks that you build other subjects on such as Geometry, trigonometry, calculus and differential equations.

Calculus,

Calculus

Majoring in Electrical / Electronics Engineering requires the most intensive and rigorous Calculus there is. As a graduate with a Bachelors of Science in Electrical Engineering (BSEE) I had to master this subject. Starting in high school and later in college I tutored other students in Calculus. I continued tutoring it after graduation and helped many college students of all levels to learn it and significantly improve their grades. In fact, in 2011, as a WyzAnt tutor I tutored a college student who was attending Mount San Antonio College in Southern California and helped her not only ace her tests but also, as a result, to qualify for a $10,000.00 grant that helped fund the remainder of her education. Her family was so pleased with this that they insisted on my attending her graduation ceremony which I gladly attended. I enjoy teaching Calculus because it is challenging for most students and seeing them learn it and excel in college is very gratifying for me. I had the honor of helping my own two daughters with Calculus. You can see the details in my WyzAnt profile.

Geometry,

Geometry

As another building block of higher math and engineering learning, I enjoyed Geometry and excelled in both Plane (two-dimensional) and Spatial (three-dimensional) Geometry. This helped me tremendously in mastering Calculus since it is used so extensively there. Since I always had a strong inclination to logic and structure I really enjoyed learning how to prove theorems and develop proofs. If anyone is struggling with these concepts I can remove any obstacle from their path and teach them these principals.
Prealgebra,

Prealgebra

Looking at my qualifications in other math subjects, it would be easy to see why teaching Prealgebra is so second nature for me. After all, without becoming an expert at this I could not have progressed to Algebra, Linear Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry, and Calculus. Please see the narrative of my qualifications for these subjects to see why I would consider myself as an expert at Prealgebra.
Precalculus,

Precalculus

Precalculus is one of my favorite subjects to teach high school and college students. In a way, it is a mixture of brushing up on Algebra, Trigonometry, and Geometry at the same time. I enjoy taking my students on that journey and preparing them for the full fledged Calculus. Throughout my tenure with Wyzant, I have taught many Precalculus students who were able to earn A grades in that subject. The ratings you see in my profile come mostly from Precalculus and Calculus teaching.

Language

Farsi

Farsi

As I was originally born and raised in Iran, Farsi is my native language. Since I came to the US after I had already attended college in Iran my mastery of the language was already at the graduate level. As such, not only can I read, write, and speak Farsi, I can teach it effectively to whomever would be interested in taking it as far as they desire including Farsi penmanship and literature at which I excelled.

I continued tutoring it after graduation and helped many college students of all levels to learn it and significantly improve their grades. Differential Equations, as a next step past Calculus, was very appealing to me. Throughout my engineering career, I held positions where I had to use differential equations in designing computer based automatic control systems and developing algorithms that I programmed into microprocessors embedded into circuit boards that were installed in Industrial factory automation systems and plan process control systems. I had the honor of serving as technical course instructor teaching this subject in combination with the principals of automatic control systems to our clients' engineering staff at several companies where I was employed over the years.

Trigonometry

Trigonometry was always intriguing and interesting to me. I excelled in it because I enjoyed it. I revel in teaching it and help students overcome the mental block they may have and the phobia they experience when they encounter heavy formulas. I have taught numerous Trig courses and had many WyzAnt students in this subject. I can help practically any student overcome his/her difficulty in grasping the concepts in Trig.

Excellent tutor. Knowledgable, patient, personable.

Sean helped me with some Calculus II concepts. He was eager to help and determined that I properly understood the concepts. Will definitely schedule another lesson with Sean.

Ryan, 3 lessons with Sean

The best tutor ever!

Sean is by far the best teacher/tutor I have ever had! He is so patient with me, even when I get embarrassed for not catching on as quick, he calms me down and reassures me. He goes over things as many times as needed in order for me to get it. He is the best!

Tiffanei, 7 lessons with Sean

Amazing tutor

Very knowledgable and provides very clear explanations for anyone to understand. Would recommend for any engineering student!

Ricky, 1 lesson with Sean

Sean went over each question I had, and also showed me different methods of saving the equations. Now I have a better understanding of the material. Thank you, Sean the way you explain and show step by step was helpful.

Ernesto, 2 lessons with Sean

Very knowledgeable

My daughter was tutored by Sean in Calculus. He was very nice, knowledgeable and explained everything as difficult as it was. He was able to make my daughter understand the problems. Thank you Sean for your excellent service!

Sophie, 1 lesson with Sean

Very good

My son enjoyed this one on one lesson , first cyber one on one and he loved it .. we are looking forward to more tutoring sessions. We are looking forward to other problem areas to be worked on .

Diane, 75 lessons with Sean

knowledgeable, accommodating, and very pleasant

My high schooler needed a tutor for her honors Integrated Math II and we were having difficulty finding someone who was knowledgeable and able to teach the concepts well. Sean contacted me and I was very impressed by his resume and the reviews and I'll agree with them all. He was very accommodating, making himself available for a last minute online session before her test. My daughter really liked his demeanor and his patience, making sure she understood everything. He never rushed her and you can truly sense how much he cares about his students, even before meeting them. We have since scheduled several in person sessions before her final and he has been incredibly accommodating. We look forward to a long tutoring relationship.

Excellent Tutor

Thank you for working with my daughter, this will not be the last time and I do recommend you to any parent. Have a great evening.

Ronit(Emmy) , 1 lesson with Sean

Very knowledgeable & experienced tutor!

Sean’s warm demeanor has a calming effect on any parent looking to find tutorial help for their son or daughter. His quick assessment of the problem area comes from experience. He brings to the sessions knowledge and patience and shares an infectious appreciation for math. We’ve already seen great improvement after only a couple sessions!
