University of Maryland (MBA)
I am an MBA graduate from the Robert H. Smith School of Business, University of Maryland with a concentration in Finance. With over three years experience in Operations Research at United Parcel Service (UPS) along with my experience at Smith, I believe I am a strong candidate to tutoring.
During my academic years at Smith, I enrolled in financial management courses to advance my skills in Finance and Mathematics. These courses increased my expertise to complete in-depth company and industry evaluations, analyze the data and draw financial and strategic conclusions. I have also developed a comprehensive foundation in financial principles, valuation techniques, and quantitative analysis.

Shirin is an excellent tutor! Extremely patient, provides clear explanations, and really devoted to helping her students learn the material. I've really enjoyed working with her, and even though my course was not listed on her profile, she has been a godsend with helping get through it.
Shirin was a great find!!! My daughter worked hard but struggled with Algebra. Shirin has a great personality, is polite, engaging, easy to get along with, and took her position very seriously. My daughter loved her!! She said Shirin explained concepts more clearly than her teacher. If Shirin felt as if, over time, your child needed more hours to better understand a concept or to prepare for an exam, she will suggest it. She availed herself to my daughter by phone if she struggled with homework. My daughter is in 9th grade and had taken Honors Algebra. You will not find a more qualified, knowledgeable, and dedicated tutor!! We highly recommend Shirin and look forward to working with her late summer to prepare for the fall school year. You will not go wrong with Shirin!!
Shirin has been my tutor now for two semesters and she is fantastic. Very welcoming, patient and knows exactly what she is doing in regards to advanced math, finance and statistics homework. Thank you Shirin for you assistance, patience and willingness to help me advance in my educational endeavors.
Shirin has a wonderful and jovial personality that embraces persons of various backgrounds to teach and build upon the knowledge the client offers. She has the ability to positively encourage the client to keep going. She says "we can do it" so you know your not alone. I never saw her become frustrated or unprofessional. Shirin will dedicate all the time she can to ensure you are successful. Today was my last time with her after a journey that was harder than I imagined and I felt like I was leaving a dear friend. I will miss her.
We interviewed several candidates for our son's Algebra I tutor and we chose Shirin. She and our 13 year old son connected and since she has been tutoring our son (since mid-September) he has not received less than an 89 on any test. She is patient, happy, thoughtful, and takes time to make sure our son is understanding the material. She also has been flexible with time changes and is able to work around our schedule if need be once in a while.
I would whole heartedly recommend this tutor to anyone. She is TERRIFIC!
Shirin is an excellent tutor. She is very professional knowledgeable and accessible. She is pleasant to work with and her teaching style promotes learning.
12/01/2011: Shirin, once again, has proven to be everything a great tutor for an adult learner should be. She coached me through some very difficult Statistic problems, methodology, and data analysis to achieve great results and an enhanced my understanding of the subject matter. Much appreciation Shirin! I am very lucky that I connected with you.
Shirin gave my daughter the confidence to tackle the hardest math classes. She got a 5 on the AP Calculus exam. She gave just the right amount of support and was incredibly kind and helpful. She's a treasure!
Shirin is an excellent tutor. She is very patient with my son. She makes sure he understands the material.
Shirin helped me pass a Managerial Finance class that was taken online. Had I not found out about WyzAnt and Shirin I wouldn't have passed the class. She was able to explain finance concepts to me and show me examples on how to do the homework assignments. I would definitely recommend her. She helped me receive a B in my class.
Shirin was amazingly knowledgeable in my graduate level statistic course. She was very hands on and willing to go the extra mile. She helped me to obtain a terrific grade and I would use her again as well as recommend her to others.
Shirin is one the most caring tutors I have ever worked with. She genuinely cares about her students success in the subjects they encounter difficulties in. She helped me with Managerial Accounting. I probably would not have completed the course successfully had I not had her help through the course. I also had her help me with Advanced Economics. Her expertise in the Finance, Accounting and Economic subject matters is clearly obvious. I would recommend her to any of my friends should they need assistance in the respective areas described. You will not regret having her as a tutor because of her patient demeanor in helping her students.
I cannot thank Shirin enough for the help she has given my daughter. My daughter has missed a lot of school but has managed to stay on top of her lessons because of Shirin's help. She is so patient and kind.
Shirin was my tutor for a graduate course in the fundamental concepts of financial accounting and economics, including opportunity cost, the time value of money, and financial analysis. I have been very impressed with her knowledge of decision-making tools (such as break-even analysis, activity-based costing procedures, linear programming, and discounted cash flow techniques). I have learned a great deal from her and received an A as my final grade.
Shirin M. has far surpassed our expectations in a tutor. She is working with our 17-year old daughter in the very challenging subject of Calculus. Shirin had a tough assignment as a tutor because our daughter, who was taking an self-taught, online Calculus course through her high school, found out right before winter break that she had fallen close to two months behind in her class. This put her in the difficult position of catching up on more than what could be called a considerable amount of work before she would be allowed to re-enroll for the second semester. How fortunate we were that Shirin was available this very busy week of the year to offer our daughter 20 hours of individual tutoring (not to mention emotional support) for this daunting challenge! Shirin even took on this assignment while on her vacation week from her own full-time day job...wow! Shirin has been prompt to our sessions, professional, encouraging, patient, flexible with scheduling, and thorough in her tutoring. She knows not just how to do the problems herself, but how to teach our daughter to understand and solve the work on her own - this is a skill that not every tutor/teacher has. We are confident that between our daughter's determination to succeed and Shirin's tutoring, our daughter will achieve the goal of re-enrollment for her second semester.
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.
