About Talifu

Dear Students and Parents:

I have more than 20 years of experience teaching mathematics at the colleges and universities of the United States, Japan and China. I am proud to be selected as one of the top 200 tutors by the nationwide tutoring company WyzAnt. As a college professor with a Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics, I am patient and adept at identifying areas in which students may need extra help, taking apart complicated problems, and breaking them down into easy-to-explain, simple parts. My priority is motivating and confidence building. I enjoy teaching and helping students understand math in depth.

I am happy to tutor in Multivariable Calculus, AP Calculus AB/BC, Pre-Calculus, Trigonometry, Geometry, Algebra 1&2, Prealgebra, ..., as well as standard math tests, such as AP Calculus AB/BC, SAT, Subject SAT, ACT, PSAT, PRAXIS, and TJ Prep.

I have two tutoring classrooms one is located near Dunn Loring Metro station in Merrifield, Va. in Fairfax County and another one is located in Potomac Station Leesburg Va. in Loudoun County.

I have different hourly rates for each service as shown below:
1. Face to face, virtual white board (Skype, or WizIQ) Tutoring, $40/h (one hour trial is available).
2. One-On-One Tutoring, $45/h, for classes held in my tutoring office.
3. One-On-One Tutoring, $65/h, if I drive to your location, (90 minutes minimum).

NOTE:
1. Consultation is free!
2. You will not be charged if you aren't satisfied!
3. Up to 20% discount is possible!
