Passionate about Teaching
For as long as I can remember I have always wanted to go into academia, specifically to become a teacher. My passion for learning was initiated by my uncle who was a professor of chemistry at San Diego State University and University of California San Diego. I developed a desire to learn and understand the world around me at an early age and have incorporated that curiosity into the way I study and analyze material. That is why when I tutor others I try to spark that same level of curiosity...
For as long as I can remember I have always wanted to go into academia, specifically to become a teacher. My passion for learning was initiated by my uncle who was a professor of chemistry at San Diego State University and University of California San Diego. I developed a desire to learn and understand the world around me at an early age and have incorporated that curiosity into the way I study and analyze material. That is why when I tutor others I try to spark that same level of curiosity in them so that they may ask the right questions and as a result understand the material on a deeper and more intuitive level. I want my students to walk away not just memorizing material that they will soon forget but to adopt a new approach to studying and learning that they can carry into every other class and into their everyday lives.
I try to make the subject matter relatable and likable so that my students will enjoy reading learning what ever it is that they are studying. My goal is to teach my students how to properly study and build a work ethic so that they will eventually become self sustaining and not as dependent on tutoring. We can accomplish this by setting goals together as well as keeping track of our lessons to chart progress to assure your success.
I specialize in Chemistry, both organic and in organic, and non-calculus based physics. I also teach art, because we all need to maintain a balance with our creative selves.
I have been tutoring the sciences since my second year in college. I take a more hands on intuitive approach to studying and try my best to implement the same level of understanding onto those that I tutor. I studied Biology and Anthropology at UCLA graduating in the top 1 percent of my class. Learning is my passion and I want to share my passion with you.
I have been painting for the last 12 years. I have done a myriad of murals for restaurants, schools and private homes. I also run a small customizing business that hand paints various objects ranging from shoes, headphones, to guitars. Contact me for more information and photo example of me work. Art is my second passion and is something I truly believe everyone should have an opportunity to delve in.
I am available everyday from 7am-7pm, and I can travel or tutor on line.
I am excited to work together to get the grades you want and help you become the kind of academic you know you can be.
A great, knowledgable, and patient tutor!
Ali is an amazing tutor. He is probably one of the best tutors I have ever had. He helped me with my General Chemistry class at UCSD and did a really good job preparing me for my final. We revied concepts like stoichiometry, the gas laws, and thermodynamics, and I can honestly say that he teaches the material better than even my instructor. As a student, I really appreciate his patient style of teaching and his effort to help guide my thought process through problems so that I am able to figure them out on my own later. I would highly recommend Ali for anyone looking for General Chemistry tutoring. He is the best!!Essmaiil, 1 lesson with Ali Reza
Excellent Tutor--very prepared, knowledgeable, patient, and fun!
I hired Ali-Reza to tutor my 15-year-old brother in Chemistry. This is what my brother had to say about him--"Amazing tutor! He was extremely prepared and professional. He had created a detailed lesson plan prior to meeting with me so that he could maximize the tutoring session. He was accommodating, patient, and knew exactly what he was doing. He was also very knowledgeable and taught chemistry in a way that I could understand it. Moreover, he made the lesson very enjoyable and was very friendly and easy to talk to. I look forward to more lessons with him and I definitely recommend him to anyone who needs help in chemistry."Kymia, 2 lessons with Ali Reza
