Look no further, I can help!

Hello, my name is Laleh. Growing up in Northern Virginia, I always excelled in math and constantly shared my expertise with other students that were not quite as adept in the subject. Throughout my undergraduate degree and subsequent Masters degree at GMU, I continued to tutor my peers in science as well as math and found that I truly had a penchant for explaining difficult concepts in a way that people could understand. With many of the students that I helped, math quickly became not only their best subject, but their favorite one as well.

Although I can and have tutored students all the way through advanced subjects, including Organic Chemistry and Calculus, I firmly believe that a thorough understanding of advanced mathematics and scientific concepts begins with a mastery of the basics. Therefore, my focus is on teaching Mental Math techniques (including Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication, and Division), Pre-algebra, Algebra 1, and more. Teaching children how to perform basic math mentally negates the need for calculators and allows for better comprehension of advanced concepts. I tutor in my home in Burke, VA. I offer 1-on-1 sessions with group sessions available. Each student receives an assessment in the first session. Make an appointment today!

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

My focus is on helping K-8th grade students in math. I have experience tutoring elementary level subjects especially in Math and English. I can help your child improve and potentially become the best student in his/her class. I have taught at various math camps in the northern Virginia area, as well. I tutor in my home in Burke, VA. Feel free to contact me! I look forward to hearing from you! Thanks!

Study Skills

I have an undergraduate degree and Masters degree from GMU. I can help students build strong study habits from scheduling, time management, memory techniques, note-taking, reading, and setting up a good studying environment. I can teach them to utilize their textbooks and outside resources effectively and efficiently. I tutor in my home in Burke, VA. Feel free to contact me! I look forward to hearing from you! Thanks!
