About Hossein

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.

Approved subjects

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.

ACT Math

Will cover in depth Pre-Algebra, Elementary and Intermediate Algebra, Coordinate Geometry, Plane Geometry and Trigonometry. We will use sample test questions and practice tests to improve timing and scores.

Algebra 1

I have a degree in mathematics and a master's in education. I currently teach eighth graders Algebra 1 in NYC and have tutored many students successfully for the NY Regents. I make sure students have a solid foundation and help them improve their problem solving techniques.

Algebra 2

I have a degree in mathematics and a master's in education. I have tutored many students successfully for the NY Regents. I make sure students have a solid foundation and help them improve their problem solving techniques.

Geometry

Macintosh

I have been using Macintosh computers since finding and fixing a discarded Mac Plus in 1987!

I am extremely familiar with Mac OS and can set up peripherals and networks.

I have done graphic design work on the Mac, using Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop and Pages. I also work with Office for Mac and have designed many Filemaker databases.

I can help with transition from Windows to Macintosh and also help with choosing which computer or device to purchase.

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 afte ...
