About Nazanin

Hello Parents and Students,

I have a PhD in Mathematical Physics. I have been teaching and tutoring Physics for about 16 years both at high school and college level and my students have always been successful in their Physics.
Physics and teaching are my passions and it's my job to make Physics fun and digestible to you.
Since my PhD is in Mathematical Physics (theoretical), I have been tutoring Algebra, Pre-Calculus, and Calculus and basically any level of Math since I was 18 years old starting undergrad.
I also teach MCAT Physical Science section as I had taken MCAT twice before and earned 14/15 on Physical sec. and so I am very familiar with the format of the Physical Science section of MCAT.

In my opinion, there is a distinct differences between a teacher and a tutor. While as a teacher in class, I try to fine tune the level of my teaching so that the average group in my class understand me, when it comes to tutoring, I always fine tune my method of teaching such that I can satisfy the needs of the student being tutored. As everyone probably agrees, not everyone is born with the same talent and students are different in terms of their ability to learn; some are more visual, some have fast pace, some a bit slower, some have problem focusing, etc. and it's the art of a skilled tutor to first diagnose the situation and then find a method that works the best for their individual students. My high ranking and positive feedback is a proof of how skilled I am when it comes to tutoring and I hope I can have a positive affect on my future students just as I have had for my past and current ones.

Best wishes,
Dr. Nazanin K

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.

MCAT

I have taken MCAT twice before and am very familiar with the format of the exam. I have also tutored a few students regarding their MCAT. I have a PhD in physics and took pre-requisite courses for medical school while I was a PhD student in order to get ready for the MCAT. Therefore, I feel very confident teaching this subject.

Physics

I have a PhD degree in Mathematical Physics, and teaching is my passion. I have been teaching physics and math for the past 13 years.

Excellent tutor! — Nazanin has been a wonderful physics tutor. I've had others in the New Orleans area - most good, one awful - Naz is in a league of her own. Her grasp of the subject is profound (she holds a PhD in physics). Her tutoring style is to encourage students to learn by doing, while providing lots of encouragement and practical insight. Through her extensive knowledge and teaching experience, Naz has show ...
