About Kasra

I completed much of my primary education in Iran. After having received a diploma from National Organization for Development of Exceptional Talents (NODET), I moved to the United States to complete my junior and senior years at James B. Conant High School in Hoffman Estates, IL. I attended the University of Chicago, where I obtained my BS in biological chemistry and my BA in chemistry. Additionally, I spent about three years doing research in a quantum mechanics lab at James Franck Institute, University of Chicago. I will be attending University of California, San Diego (UCSD) for MS/PhD in biomedical engineering.

I have been tutoring for over six years, and I am honored to have helped bright students achieve their maximum potentials. I was extremely fortunate to have some exceptionally talented and caring teachers in my academic career, and I do my best to bring the same experience to my students. I strive to help my student understand the concept; once you understand the concept and feel an authority over the material, joy and voluntary extra practice will follow naturally. My favorite subjects to tutor are mathematics, physics, and chemistry. I find solace in science, math, and research. However, I also take great pleasure in playing soccer, exercising, painting, drawing, calligraphy, and reading on politics, history, and philosophy. I hold numerous first place awards in watercolor, charcoal, and colored pencil paintings.

I have taken numerous higher level courses in college, necessary for quantum mechanics and theoretical physics.
