I am an experienced math tutor who has worked at George Mason University Math Learning Center for about three years, where I tutored students in variety of math courses such as algebra, probability, and calculus. I have a strong passion for teaching and more importantly I have been highly successful in transferring my knowledge to my students. I believe clarity and patience are two important traits that each tutor must possess in order to help their students in the most effective way. Also it is very important to encourage the student by letting them know how much they know instead of pointing out their weaknesses.

I have helped, on more than one occasion, students who were struggling badly in their math courses but in the end they got a very well deserved grade. It is my hope to be able to help more students achieve high grades in their math courses. I have a bachelor and masters degree in engineering, and scored 740 (out of 800) on the GRE quantitative. I took AP calculus in high school and got a score of 5 (maximum) on the AP exam.

Homeschool

Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

I have a lot of tutoring experience in algebra. I think algebra 2 is the most fun and yet important of all math courses as it is the base of higher level courses (e.g precalculus and calculus). I have a lot of experience tutoring algebra at George Mason University, as well as helping students in one on one settings, and helping them pass their algebra course or the math placement test (a test which contains mostly algebra questions and by passing that one would receive credit for algebra without having to take it) with high grades/scores.
Calculus,

Calculus

The highlight of my math tutoring experience is in tutoring Calculus. I helped a student who had failed two quizzes early in the semester and had lost confidence, to master the material and do very well on his quizzes and exams, and get an A in his course. I also met another student near the end of his semester who had solid D in his class and was hoping for a C to pass. I helped him out and he did so well on his final exam that he got a B as his final grade. It is important to note that the later student had never taken a course in algebra prior to taking Calculus and yet he managed to do very well with my help and of course a lot of effort of his own.

Farsi

I was born in Iran and I speak Farsi fluently as my first language. I attended elementary, middle and high school in Iran. I have been exposed to Persian literature and have read and enjoyed the epic poem of Shahnameh by the great Persian poet Ferdowsi, Gulistan of Sa'adi, as well as the work of other great Persian poets like Hafiz and Rumi.

Electrical Engineering,

Electrical Engineering

I have a BS degree in Electrical Engineering from George Mason University. I have passed a lot of courses in electronics and signals and systems. I have tutored students in signals and systems (e.g. finding the transfer function, unit step response, etc) and fundamentals of electric circuits (finding the Thevinin and Norton equivalent circuit, solving first and second order linear circuits, etc).
Finite Math,

Finite Math

I am familiar with most topics covered in finite math such as sets, functions and graph, inequalities, probability and statistics. I have a lot of experience tutoring these topics at the college level in various math courses such as algebra and statistics. I have helped students do very well in these subjects and obtain decent grades.
Linear Algebra,

Linear Algebra

I took a course in linear algebra in my undergraduate and got an A. while working at a university's Math Learning Center, I helped students with variety of math courses including linear algebra. I have applied some linear algebra topics such as "matrices" in other engineering courses such as control and systems.
MATLAB,

Seems to know it all!

My daughter had excellent things to say about Seyed, He could quickly pick up on all questions, was able to explain querky aspects of some her teacher's unique math approaches, very efficient in his teaching style.

David, 2 lessons with Seyed Kaveh

Knowledgeable and Supportive

Seyed is an extremely knowledgeable and supportive of the students he is tutoring. He is able to explain complex problems with my sons in high school and middle school Math. I recommend Seyed for any level of Math.

Monique, 34 lessons with Seyed Kaveh

Very patient and knowledgeable

Introducing me to Statistics and how we use it. We went over 10 problems and different Statistical definitions. The amount of time spent on each problem was sufficient enough for me to understand.

Azaria , 11 lessons with Seyed Kaveh

Very knowledgeable and hard working

Seyed was very helpful in tutoring my daughter in trig for her PreCalc class. He is most competent and really wants his student to learn and understand the material. I think he does an excellent job.

Ada, 3 lessons with Seyed Kaveh

enthusiastic and patient

We went over reviews of pre-calculus. He was patient and determined to make sure I understood the material, using many ways to show me how to solve problems. He was very enthusiastic about the subject which made me interested and motivated to feel the same way about calculus.

Annie, 3 lessons with Seyed Kaveh

Great Math tutor at affordable price

After going through a couple math tutors on Wyzant, my friend and I came to the conclusion that we probably wouldn't be able to find any good tutors on an online platform like this one. Luckily, Seyed proved us wrong in just one hour of tutoring that really helped our understanding of not only calculus but also how to bring geometry and other classes into problem solving

Harry, 1 lesson with Seyed Kaveh

Extremely knowledgeable!

He was extremely knowledgeable in calculus and understood subject inside and out and made it very easy for my son to understand how calculus works

Kathleen, 6 lessons with Seyed Kaveh

Seyed is magic!

Before I started tutoring with Seyed I was barely passing calculus 1 and I had two very disappointing test scores which were killing my GPA. I was half way through the semester and I decided I needed professional help. I did three sessions with Seyed for my last test which I made a 98% on. His ability to break down the information into easier concepts was amazing for me. I used the techniques and skills he taught me and applied it to the final. I finished the Calculus 1 with a 90.85%. Thanks to Seyed I was able to save my GPA from ruin. He is a great tutor!

Jesus, 3 lessons with Seyed Kaveh

great tutor

Seyed is extremely knowledgeable and was able to explain topics in a matter that my daughter could clearly understand. I highly recommend him and would definitely use him again
