About Mahen


Bio

Hey,

I'm Mahen and I've been working with youth and adults by organizing programs since 2003.

I graduated from NCSSM and then from NCSU with degrees in Aerospace Engineering and Mechanical Engineering, and a minor in Psychology. I took other courses per my interests (i.e., accounting, athletic training, British literature, undergraduate research [EcoCAR: The NeXt Challenge*], etc.). *My team optimized the electronic cooling system design (i.e., programmed the ECU via Simulink and designed...

Hey,

I'm Mahen and I've been working with youth and adults by organizing programs since 2003.

I graduated from NCSSM and then from NCSU with degrees in Aerospace Engineering and Mechanical Engineering, and a minor in Psychology. I took other courses per my interests (i.e., accounting, athletic training, British literature, undergraduate research [EcoCAR: The NeXt Challenge*], etc.). *My team optimized the electronic cooling system design (i.e., programmed the ECU via Simulink and designed related hardware) for a modified diesel-battery hybrid vehicle.

I received tutor certification through NTA.

My leadership training includes: LeaderShape, Advance Leaders Program, CSLEPS Visionary Leadership Certificate workshops, and Shelton Leadership Forum. I have certifications in psychological first aid, mental health first aid, disaster caplaincy, and others.

I have a Masters of Education (M.Ed., in Advanced Teaching).

My practice uses inclusive curriculum design to develop independent learners.

In the past, I started and oversaw a free community tutoring program.

In business, I've done B2B (wholesale/distribution) and B2C (FBA, FBM, malls, etc.), with private-labelling and reselling, with training from mentors, Amazing Selling Machine, and other programs designed for branding, marketing strategies, and scaling.

I am an Elite Trainer (ISSA), with four certifications: Fitness Trainer, Nutritionist, Transformation Specialist, and Genetics-Based Program Designer.

I am a certified coach with focus in: life, academic, transformation, health, fitness, nutrition, wellness, relationship, emotional balance, confidence, business, and life purpose.

Time is our most valuable asset and we exchange bits of it for things. I invest my time into facilitating opportunities of personal and professional growth for all. I enjoy sports and working with people. In my "free time", I am with family and friends, learning about something, or reflecting. As a Muslim, this lifestyle brings much contentment.

How may I help?

Fortran,

Fortran

As part of my Aerospace Engineering degree, I had to take a Fortran course in the beginning. I used Fortran for programs relating to the degree, given its simple organization and functionality. Often, we used Fortran for projects involving fluid flows and others applications requiring iterations, though, later, we also used MATLAB.
MATLAB,

MATLAB

I double-majored in Aerospace Engineering and Mechanical Engineering, and minored in Psychology. As part of my majors, MATLAB was a must. We used MATLAB for labs, projects, and our senior design projects. For one of my majors, we used MATLAB to design a model R/C aircraft, including for wing design and structural analysis. I am a tutor certified through the National Tutoring Association (NTA).

Study Skills

Over the years, I have attended several workshops, seminars, conferences, retreats, and classes (courses) through which I have learned effective studying strategies. The strategies include a focus on structure, chronology/order of topics, duration and frequency of study, and relevant resource access and utility. My tutees, at the tutoring program I started and oversee and others, have found these strategies effective, as did/do I during my own study sessions.

I am a Muslim and I have studied Arabic for several years, including under a graduate (PhD) of Al-Azhar in Cairo, Egypt. I have a special requirement to continue its ongoing study, and this drives my language enhancement. In addition, I have taught the language to many students at various learning levels.

Math

Differential Equations,

Differential Equations

I took a differential equations course in high school (NCSSM) and one at NCSU for my engineering majors. We used differential equations in courses for both engineering degrees (aerodynamics I and II, fluid dynamics, boundary layer theory, mechanical vibrations, heat and mass transfer, and so on). At NCSU, I also tutored differential equations (as a private tutor).

In December 2012, I graduated with a double major in Aerospace Engineering and Mechanical Engineering. I took most of the undergraduate classes offered in the MAE (Mechanical-Aerospace-Engineering) department. In addition, I was part of a special topics class (one-semester duration) wherein my team had to re-design/re-program the cooling system for a hybrid SUV (NCSU's EcoCAR).

First Lesson Better Than Expected!

Excellent and Very Patient! Mahen gave my son's organizational tidbits as well as additional study skills. He is also tutoring in Chemistry, Math 2 and Math 3.

Tracy, 22 lessons with Mahen

Great tutor!!!

I reached out to Mahen when I realized that I would need help with online Statistics. Math, of any sort, has never been a strong point for me. Mahen is very patient and able to present the information in a way that I can understand it. If I don't understand one approach, he's fast to respond with another. He is enthusiastic during sessions and shows a genuine interest in helping. He is also professional and responds appropriately. My grades and overall confidence for this class have improved significantly since we began our sessions.

Lynn, 7 lessons with Mahen

Highly Recommend, Great Math Tutor!

Mahen has been great with tutoring both of my sons this school year! He has been very patient and well prepared for each session. Tutoring 6/7 compacted math and common core 3 with my sons. He even last minute was able to come work with my older son that night to prepare him for a quiz the next day. I would highly recommend him.

Heather, 298 lessons with Mahen

We Love Mahen!

We all love Mahen, he is good about multi-tasking between my two children and keeps them on point. If they tell him there's nothing they need help with he reviews their notes and discusses the topics so they can understand. Thanks Mahen for all you do!

Carla, 35 lessons with Mahen

Great Tutor

Mahen came well prepared with notes and went over all the required materials and then covered all questions my student had. She has a good understanding of the materials and feels confident for her test. Thank you, Mahen.

Deb, 3 lessons with Mahen

Very Patient

Mahen is very professional and organized. He has a lot of patience and will teach a topic over and over until you can grasp it.

Kathryn, 1 lesson with Mahen

Very thorough, organized and effective.

1/14 We still have mid-terms to get through but it looks like we may be getting an A!!! I have no doubt that my son could not have pulled this off without Mahen's help. He is so supportive, patient and helpful. 12/13 My son has gone from a weak D to a strong B in calculus thanks to Mahen's help. He speaks my son's language - which is a tremendous feat and we are grateful. 10/13 Mahen was easy to reach by phone, very available and very thorough & organized. He was particularly 'business-like' and seemed to explain the material thoroughly. We appreciated his deep knowledge of Calculus and ability to explain it in an understandable way for a 15 year old.

Amy, 22 lessons with Mahen

Great tutor, responds always on time

Mahen is a great tutor. He always comes prepared with material for the tutoring session. He is well mannered, and gives very helpful tips to my son so he can succeed. He responds quickly when I contact him for the next session. I am very glad I found the right tutor for my son. Thanks Mahen!
