About Asif

I am a mathematics professor at Mesa College and received my PhD from UCSD in 2011. I believe that math is more than just crunching numbers and solving equations: it is a way of thinking and problem solving that extends to many other academic pursuits. I have taught math classes from basic algebra to differential equations for over 10 years and have worked with students of all levels and comfort with math. One of the biggest obstacles that I have seen students encounter is having confidence to apply ideas they learned to new problems. I found that if I can help the students overcome this first barrier and really understand the concepts they gain confidence in themselves and produce great results!

I am very patient and flexible with my students. My goal is for my students to truly understand rather than just memorize a formula or sequence of steps to pass. I am a strong believer in building solid foundations and filling in any gaps because mathematics is very much a subject that builds on itself.

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.

Differential Equations

I am a math professor at Mesa College. I received a PhD in mathematics from UCSD and am teaching Differential Equations at college level. My research also touched on differential equations.

Electrical Engineering

I have a Master's in Electrical Engineering, and worked in the industry as well. I have taught as a teaching assistant while in graduate school many of the Electrical Engineering courses. These include Electromagnetism, Circuits, Systems, and others. My industry job involved designing digital circuits, signal processing and systems engineering.

Linear Algebra

I was a TA at UCSD and have been involved with teaching courses including those with linear algebra as a basic prerequisite. It is also used in my research. This research is well beyond undergraduate level. I can teach algebra as an abstract subject and at applied level.
