I am a New York City teacher with a bachelor's degree in mathematics and a master's in education and certified in adolescent math. I am a New York City teaching fellow as well as a fellow with the prestigious Math For America fellowship program for top math and science teachers.

Mathematics doesn't need to be scary or complicated. It should be exciting and relatable. Most people have a hard time learning new concepts because an earlier step was either skipped or not fully understood along the way. I like to break down subjects to their most basic elements, ensuring students have a deep understanding of the building blocks. Through problem solving, I help students relate concepts to the world around them and learn mathematics naturally. In this way even seemingly complicated subjects like calculus can be mastered.

As a father of three academically gifted daughters, I am very familiar with preparing students for college and university including SAT and ACT prep and the application process. Two of my daughters are at elite colleges while my youngest is a junior in high school and currently in the process of taking standardized tests and visiting schools. I have prepared many students for the SAT and ACT as well as Regents in Algebra 1, Geometry and Algebra 2.

Great Teaching Skills

My daughter's math tutor Hossein is very knowledgeable. He has great teaching style, and helped my daughters a lot in building up her problems solving skills.

Great Tutor

Really take the time to establish a trusting rapport with the student. Creates a more trusting and I believe higher learning atmosphere.

Great Tutor!!!

We love our tutor Mr. Hossein, as he is knowledgeable and highly motivated to help with all my son's needs. He has a very creative approach to education and learning. I highly recommend him to everyone. Thanks!!!

We Hit The Ground Running!!!

I was very impressed! Hossein quickly established an academic benchmark and got right to work. He gently pushed my student out of his comfort zone. Hossein's answers were thorough, enabling him to 'own' the information and immediately reapply it. The hard work was punctuated with an occasional laugh assuring me that a rapport had been found. My son continued to work for another two hours after Hossein left and is looking forward to the next session. Success! *** Two months later, I am still thrilled! Hossein is an amazing teacher, with a gift for connecting with kids and explaining complex topics in simple terms. He prepared my son for his Subject SAT, regents and finals. This summer he will be working with my son on the challenges of his upcoming Junior year. We plan on getting a jump on Stats AP and Calc AP as well as gearing up for the SATs. Thank you Hossein. I worry less, knowing that you have his back!

Awesome Tutor

If you are looking for an outstanding tutor look no further. Hossein is very organized dedicated and punctual. Hossein explains the math in a very simple and efficient way. He is very patient and shares his knowledge of the history of math and why expressions are set up in the specific order that they are written in. Hossein is truly a gifted and caring teacher.
