About Asif


Bio

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...

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.

Patient and Knowledgeable!

My son met with Asif and thought he was great and will meet with him regularly to help him get through college calculus. Asif knew the subject well and explained it in a way my son could clearly understand.
