About Moujtaba

Hi, I'm Moujtaba! I graduated college summa cum laude with a BS in Biochemistry and a BS in Mathematics. I've always enjoyed teaching others ever since I would tutor my friends in Calculus back in high school. My top priority is making sure you understand and appreciate the material you're learning. I've found that many students only have trouble because ideas aren't explained in a way that makes sense to their learning style. I hope I can explain things in a way that clicks for you and allow you to actually enjoy what you're learning.

While I was in college, I became a grader and tutor for a year in my university's math department. They liked my work so much that they offered me a two-year position as a teaching assistant (TA) for Calculus I and II during my junior and senior years. As a TA, I was in charge of teaching my own quiz section class, making and grading quizzes for it, and grading homework and exams. I spent a lot of time helping my students during office hours in a one-on-one setting as well as in the classroom. I've also studied a lot of biology, chemistry, and biochemistry, and I'm a voracious reader, so I'm more than ready to help students with those subjects too.

I know that problems can come up at any time, so I try to respond as soon as possible when you send me any questions. A quick response makes sure you get the answer you need before you lose your train of thought. Feel free to get in touch with me if you have any questions or want to schedule a lesson!

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

While in college, I majored in Mathematics and obtained a BS summa cum laude. I was hired as a tutor by the math department for one year. During that time, I helped students with algebra 2. The department liked my work so much they offered me a two-year position as a teaching assistant for Calculus I and II classes. I often had students come into my office hours and ask for help not with calculus, but with the algebra underlying it. That's why I think learning algebra 2 well is extremely important and I hope to help students build a solid foundation in it.

Calculus

While in high school, I tutored my friends while we were taking calculus together. When I entered college, I majored in mathematics. The department hired me as a calculus tutor for one year, but the faculty liked my work so much they offered me a two-year teaching assistant position. During that time, I taught quiz and study sections of Calculus I and II. In addition to teaching for two hours a week, I also made and graded quizzes, held office hours, and graded homework and exams.

Chemistry

In addition to taking two years of high school chemistry, I was on my high school Science Olympiad team for three years and won multiple medals at the regional level in the Chemistry Lab event. I went on to obtain a BS in Biochemistry summa cum laude as well as a BS in Mathematics summa cum laude. While in college, I worked as an organic chemistry researcher for two years and had a paper published in a journal focused on education and chemistry. During my senior year, I obtained the highest overall score in my graduating class on the university's chemistry exit exams. I also gained extensive teaching experience in college thanks to one year of tutoring mathematics, two years of being a teaching assistant for calculus courses, and two years of volunteering to help underprivileged children improve their reading skills.

Precalculus

While in college, I was hired as a math tutor for one year by the math department. Most of the students I tutored needed help with pre-calculus, and I used a combination of explanations, graphs, and analogies to make the topics easy to understand. The department faculty received good reviews of me from students, and they liked my work so much they hired me to be a calculus teaching assistant for two years after that. Even while I taught calculus classes, I had to help my students with precalculus, as they sometimes had missing gaps in their knowledge base. This review work helped them better understand calculus and other subjects such as differential equations.

Reading

I've previously worked as a volunteer to help disadvantaged elementary school students improve their reading skills. After working with two kids for a year, they had not only caught up with their classmates but actually surpassed them in terms of reading comprehension. More importantly, I made sure to help my students learn to love reading and books, something which will help them for the rest of their lives.
