About Azadeh

Hi, my name is Azadeh M. and I cannot wait to start working with all of you and helping you reach your full potential. I have been teaching and tutoring since I was in high school; I loved that feeling of knowing I had helped my classmates understand something they thought was impossible to get. It's wonderful to be able to help people, and that's why I love to teach/tutor and have continued to do so for nearly ten years. I believe my approach is unique because I never lose sight of the fact that I was a student, too: I make sure you enjoy the learning experience and I try not to push you beyond your reasonable limits for retention and comprehension on any given day (we all get tired at some point and I am conscious of that -- you won't learn if I push you beyond your comfort level and I respect that). I also learned from working with my younger brother that sometimes a little humor and relating school work to real life interests one may have go a long way in ensuring you understand and retain information. Overall, my style is effective because I tailor a very simple approach -- if you can laugh while you learn, you will learn more -- to every single student's needs and abilities. I look forward to working with you!

I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology, with minors in Math and English/Writing, from American University and a Juris Doctorate from George Mason University's School of Law. I've been fortunate enough to work with all different age groups and grade levels, from elementary school through college, in a variety of subjects. I teach and tutor in all levels (grammar school through college) of Spanish, English, Math, Psychology, public speaking, and Writing. I taught high school Spanish at my old high school, Bishop O'Connell, and I've worked as a tutor for Mathnasium in Vienna, NovaStar Prep, and Tutoring for Success (the last one is a current employer, too), where students from elementary school through college came to ask for help in the subjects noted. I tutored my classmates while at American University in Psychology, different styles of Writing, and Advanced Math, and I currently teach Legal Writing at Mason Law. I also won several mock court competitions while in law school so I am very well qualified to help with public speaking difficulties.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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 English

I did not take the ACT, as no college to which I applied required it, but I took both the old SAT and the new version (both of which I did well on), and I therefore feel very confident in my ability to prepare any student for the English section of any standardized test. Additionally, I minored in English/Writing Mechanics at American University, currently teach Legal Writing at George Mason University's School of Law, have been published in several scholarly and otherwise academic publications, and have tutored in English previously.

ACT Math

My colleges of choice did not require the ACT to be taken, but I did very well on both the old version of the SAT (without the essay portion) and the new version. I took both in order to experience both formats and I ended up submitting both when I applied to college because I had succeeded on both exams. Math has always been a strong subject for me, so I feel confident that I can prepare any student for the math section of any standardized test. Furthermore, I minored in Mathematics at American University and ultimately took classes in everything from Advanced Calculus to Linear Algebra and Number Theory. I volunteered as a tutor in the university's Math Center and have tutored in Math for different tutoring companies I've worked for, as well as a Math-specific center, Mathnasium, in Vienna.

Algebra 1

I minored in Mathematics at American University, taking various classes from Calculus III to Linear Algebra to even Number Theory, so I am very well-versed in ever possible aspect of academic Mathematics. I've tutored math before, too: I volunteered at the University's Math Center while a student, I worked at the Mathnasium Tutoring Center in Vienna, VA, and I tutored Math while working for other tutoring companies.

Algebra 2

I minored in Mathematics at American University, particularly taking several Advanced Algebra and Algebra-adjacent courses, like Linear Algebra and two levels of Advanced Calculus. I've tutored in Algebra 2 specifically before and continue to do so. I also volunteered to tutor students struggling in Algebra, Trigonometry, and Calculus in high school as well as during college, the latter at the University's Math Center.

American History

I excelled in history throughout high school, taking Early Modern History, Ancient Egyptian and Greek/Roman Studies, Survey of the Dark and Middle Ages, and American History. I always enjoyed history so I continued taking classes for fun throughout college, including Shakespearean, Renaissance and Reformation, and Western Legal Tradition classes. I feel very comfortable tutoring in any area of history, and I continue to study history generally and improve my knowledge of the world in my free time.

Bar Exam

I am a graduate of George Mason University School of Law. I sat for the February 2016 bar exam and recently found out that I passed. I developed my own test-taking and study methods, with which I am very happy and which have always helped me. I understand people have different styles of learning and I think my methods provide a very unique approach to combat those variations.

Elementary Math

I always did well in Math and it was a subject that I could understand quickly, but I could also understand it in a way to teach others. I always helped my friends in elementary school and through college when they had trouble with Math. I also minored in Math at American University and volunteered in the Math Center to help tutor students who struggled. I worked for a math tutoring company, Mathnasium, in Vienna, VA, where I worked almost exclusively with elementary school-aged children. I also have siblings I've helped with elementary math. Ultimately, I'm very well-versed in elementary math and, more importantly, how to teach it.

English

I minored in English and Writing Mechanics at American University, but I also polished my writing skills considerably by majoring in Psychology and writing several term papers for the courses. I have written for school publications since high school and was recently published in my school's International Law journal. I have tutored in English and Writing Mechanics before, as well as tutored for the ACT before.

Geometry

Geometry was my first high school Math class. I did very well in that class and my success in it encouraged me to continue with Honors classes throughout high school. I then decided to pursue a Math minor at American University, where one of my classes was Advanced Trigonometry, a close relative of basic geometrical studies. I've tutored in Math for various companies, including a math-centered one called Mathnasium in Vienna, VA.

Grammar

I always excelled in Grammar studies through college and ended up minoring in Writing Mechanics. I am a stickler for grammar as practiced in both the spoken and written word. I've been published in scholarly journals and I currently teach Legal Writing.

Law

I am a George Mason University School of Law graduate. I have now been working for two years post-law school, one year served as a Writing Instructor at my alma mater and one year in a family law firm. I was successful in my classes as well as my extracurricular activities, having been Editor-in-Chief of my law school journal as well as the top public speaker in my graduating class. I have also recently passed the Bar Exam and will be licensed to practice soon.

Literature

I always enjoyed Lit studies in school, through college, and ended up minoring in Literature Studies and Writing Mechanics. I have tutored in Literature Analysis as well as the art of writing a Lit Paper or Essay. I also have specialized expertise in different areas of Literature, like Shakespearean works.

Prealgebra

I minored in Mathematics at American University and ultimately took classes in everything from Advanced Calculus to Linear Algebra and Number Theory. I volunteered as a tutor in the university's Math Center and have tutored in Math for different tutoring companies I've worked for, as well as a Math-specific center, Mathnasium, in Vienna.

Precalculus

I started taking Calculus at the Precalculus level in high school, in which I did very well, and then continued through college all the way up to and including Calculus III. I ended up minoring in Mathematics at American University, adding to my Advanced Calculus courses Linear Algebra and Number Theory. I have tutored in various levels of math, from Elementary Math to Advanced Calculus, for over 10 years. I even volunteered at my university's Math Center. I also worked at a math-specific tutoring center in Vienna, VA, Mathnasium.

Public Speaking

I developed an interest in public speaking after participating in debate club in high school. I later participated in two intramural competitions during my time in law school, the First Year Competition mandatory for all first-year students and the optional Upper Class Competition. I excelled in both competitions, taking home top prizes. I also participated in two extramural competitions, back-to-back appearances at the most prestigious moot court competition in the world, the Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition. At the Jessup Competition, I was voted a Top 35 Oralist, out of 300 competitors, and my submitted brief won the Best Brief Award. My team also made it to the quarter-finals in 2014. I've also been called upon to coach several moot court competitors who were in their first or second year of law school and were looking to excel in other national competitions. I also have competed in intramural trial advocacy competitions and successfully represented my school in several mock trials. I continue to be a source of training for many of my classmates and new students at Mason because of my style of instruction and my knowledge of public speaking techniques in many different arenas.

Religion

I attended Catholic high school, where I became well-versed in the Catholic faith and the Christian religion at large. While in high school, I took a World Religions course and it sparked my interest in world religions. As a result, I studied world religions independently throughout college while taking two Eastern Religions courses as well. I have tutored classmates in various religion studies and courses throughout high school as well as throughout college. My brother attends my old high school so I have helped him with his studies as well. I am well-versed and qualified to tutor in Christianity, Islam, Judaism, Hinduism, Buddhism, Zoroastrianism, Taoism, and Native American tribal religions.

SAT Math

I always did very well in Math throughout high school and ultimately ended up doing very well on the Math sections of both the old and the new versions of the SATs (I had to take both as my graduating year was the first year the new one was offered and most colleges "preferred" to see both scores). I minored in Mathematics at American University and ultimately took classes in everything from Advanced Calculus to Linear Algebra and Number Theory. I volunteered as a tutor in the university's Math Center and have tutored in Math for different tutoring companies I've worked for, as well as a Math-specific center, Mathnasium, in Vienna.

Spanish

I started learning Spanish in first grade and have been studying it and speaking it ever since. I believe it was better for me to learn in an academic environment because it gave me a complete and comprehensive understanding of the language such that when I was in a class with native Spanish speakers, I always had the highest grade and I was technically a non-native speaker. I've taken AP Spanish language and literature and excelled at both exams. Lastly, I taught at my old high school and prepared students for their final exams in four different levels of Spanish.

World History

I always did well in history throughout high school. I took a variety of classes, like Early Modern European History, Ancient Egyptian and Greek/Roman Studies, World Religions, World Governments, and American History. Because I always enjoyed history, I continued taking classes throughout college. Many of those classes, like Shakespearean studies, also contributed to my English/Writing minor. I also took, however, classes that were not offered in high school, like Renaissance and Reformation, Western Legal Tradition, and Early Eastern History. I feel very comfortable tutoring in any area of history as a result.

Writing

I did well in writing in each English class I took from junior high through college, and I always enjoyed writing as an activity. It gradually became a passion of mine and I minored in English/Writing Mechanics at American University. I served as a Legal Writing Teacher's Assistant at George Mason University School of Law, while a student there myself, and I am now a part-time Legal Writing Instructor at my alma mater. I have been published in academic and otherwise scholarly publications and feel very comfortable teaching any style of writing.
