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!

Patient and knowledgeable

Laleh is really helping my daughter with her math. She picked up on where the deficits are and has tailored a study program to overcome them. My daughter enjoys her sessions and is motivated to learn.

Excellent, Patient, Great tutor for My daughter' Math

My daughter is AAP student; She is good at reading and writing; However, she didn't like the math subject. Every time, she took the math test, she was nervous. Her math score was always in the average. I am a very strict mother. I hope her math score can be like her reading, writing, or social studies score are always on the top of the class. After Laleh trained her ; She starts to love math. she feels confidence about the math. She loves to talk about the math. During the weekend, she wants to practice math problems by herself. It is all because of Laleh. My daughter math score is increasing a lot this year after she got trained by Laleh. I want to say thank you very much. Laleh. Because of you, My daughter starts to like the math. You are the best math teacher in the world. Thank you again! Annie

Great teacher and comfortable to work with

We sent three kids to Laleh for tutoring. All 3 are in sixth grade and at different levels of math skills. Laleh identified their skill levels and grouped them into 2, which was first big step to make sure to provide the appropriate teaching they needed. She did a great job on that. Kids were very happy to work with Laleh and prompt in doing their home works. I saw an increased interest in math after starting classes. Over the period of 6 months into classes with Laleh, we saw a very good improvements in math skills from the level where they started. Based on my kids feedback about the classes, I can say that Laleh is good in simplifying math concepts in way that kids can understand and work on. As a parent, it was easy to work with Laleh. After starting classes, we needed to make changes to our schedules couple of times due to changes with kids other activities. It was very easy and comfortable to work with Laleh to make these changes. She is very understandable and easy to work with. I will definitely recommend Laleh to my friends if they need to have their kid sent to math tutoring.

Patient Miracle Worker

Both I and my husband have degrees in math and physics, so naturally we assumed that we can help our son with any math problem. And we tried doing it, from first grade to fifth grade- without any success. He would learn how to solve a problem, and a week later he would look at the same problem like he is seeing it for the first time in his life. It was extremely frustrating, year after year, scandal after scandal. We gave up by the end of the 5th grade, and started tutoring with Laleh. And now, several months later, I am amazed with the progress. Somehow Laleh figured out a way to patiently explain how to think and solve problems, and also how for the knowledge to stay long term in his brain. My son likes math now, he would proudly announce: "Mom, I am doing problems for 8th grade!" (He is in 6th grade now). I can see a sudden interest for math, and that is a huge change compared to several months ago. I am very impressed with his progress. Laleh succeeded where we, parents, tried and failed.

Wonderful Results

I have been very happy with my daughter's progress since working with Laleh. She was having difficulty with the fast pace used in the advanced academic program. She didn't have enough time to catch on to basic addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division facts. After weekly sessions with Laleh, my daughter has become more comfortable with the basic skills. I was very happy to hear that my daughter only got one wrong on the 3rd grade SOL! Laleh is very professional and encouraging. It is worth it to see my daughter have confidence in math that she never had before. Thank you, Laleh!

Great math tutor for kids with special needs!

Clear, kind, but still appropriately challenging! Calm and gentle. She also gently corrects and remains consistent. Just a great teacher!

Cy, 47 lessons with Laleh

Great Improvement!

Since working with Laleh, our daughter has improved her Math grade from a B- to an A. Laleh is patient and has a great way of getting students to understand how to accomplish goals. I would highly recommend Laleh to anyone.

Great Tutor!

I have had about 3 lessons with Laleh so far and I have been progressing after each visit. I'm tutoring with her for the math section of the TEAS test. She knows her math very well and does an excellent job for you to learn it in the simplest ways. I like her tutoring room set up because she has a huge dry erase board for her to show you the problems and your able to work them out together. She also has great worksheets and objects to use to show you what she is explaining with math. I like her style of teaching and we have continued to progress through things I'm weak in. Shes a great tutor and has made me feel a lot more confident in the areas I'm weak in.

Very patient and well-organized!

I have been taking my 5th grade daughter to see Laleh for tutoring in elementary mathematics. Laleh is very patient in working with younger students. Her office is well organized and she gives students homework to work on between tutoring sessions. She is also collecting old SOL tests and planning to use them in her curriculum. Although my daughter has only gone to see Laleh twice she is already feeling more confident about math. I am glad we found her and plan to keep having weekly tutoring sessions.
