About Sina


Bio

I am a 4th-year medical student and I am currently in my research year. I have been tutoring various subjects since high school and have found it most rewarding to see my student realize their true potentials and succeed in their studies. I have continued my teaching career through college, as a teaching assistant and supplemental instructor, as well as in medical school. I develop a strong relationship with my students and, over time, act as their mentors and study guides. I am patient and...

I am a 4th-year medical student and I am currently in my research year. I have been tutoring various subjects since high school and have found it most rewarding to see my student realize their true potentials and succeed in their studies. I have continued my teaching career through college, as a teaching assistant and supplemental instructor, as well as in medical school. I develop a strong relationship with my students and, over time, act as their mentors and study guides. I am patient and ensure my students gain a deep understanding of the important materials that we discuss, so that they can apply them in difficult questions and real-life situations.

My native language is Farsi and I greatly enjoy teaching it to those who are looking to learn this beautiful, poetic language, be it to speak, write, or read it. I also teach English to ESL students and prepare applicants for their TOEFL exam, in which I received a score of 108. I provide proofreading assistance, time management, planning, and organization for students who need additional support to succeed. I also teach Mathematics, from pre-algebra to pre-calculus.

Over the past decade I have received constructive feedback from many students that I have mentored and have been able to fine-tune my teaching method. More importantly, however, I have learned the importance of personalizing teaching strategies so that my students benefit the most from their time with me and learn what works best for them.

I have a passion for academia and student support and look forward to helping those who put their trust in me as their mentor and tutor. A good tutor helps you cross a bridge, but a mentor shows you the way to success.

AMAZING!

Really adjusted to my exact needs. It was very personable. We will be continuing every week - I appreciated how much time we took to learn my family members too

Gaby, 2 lessons with Sina

awesome tutor!

Sina has been awesome! he is very knowledgable in different topics in medicine and has been very helpful in teaching high-yield concepts and going through clinical case reasonings during my med school clerkships. he is very patient and explains concepts not only in an easy to understand and memorable manner, but expands on the concepts where I feel I have a much better handle on the material and makes sure I understand the "whys" and clinical reasoning, which have been extremely helpful during med school.

Today he tutored me with high yield sections of USMLE for cardiology. He knows his materials and takes time to explain it. Also he asked me questions to make sure that I understood all the concept.
