About Shiraz


Bio

I am trained as an electrical engineer and was fortunate enough to spend a rewarding career in that field. I recently decided to change careers in order to teach science and math in high school. I have completed my teaching license program at UMass Boston and earned my M.Ed degree and a MA license to teach Physics and Math.

My involvement in education has been prevalent throughout my engineering career through volunteering at local, regional and state level science fairs as a judge.

I am trained as an electrical engineer and was fortunate enough to spend a rewarding career in that field. I recently decided to change careers in order to teach science and math in high school. I have completed my teaching license program at UMass Boston and earned my M.Ed degree and a MA license to teach Physics and Math.

My involvement in education has been prevalent throughout my engineering career through volunteering at local, regional and state level science fairs as a judge.

My teaching style closely resembles a coaching relationship with my students. It is intended to teach them enough facts and application techniques in order for them to not only be able to figure out the solution to an assigned problem but also to be able to see how that knowledge and ability applies in some real-life situations.

My personal goal as a teacher is to help students see the benefits and challenge in science and engineering careers so that some of them will consider that as a potential vocation later in their lives. This was my primary reason for making a career change.

I have recently moved to Brandon, VT and still getting to know the area.

SAS

I have reviewed SAS (Side, Angle, Side) tests and problems, and the material covered is use of Geometry and Algebra and Trigonometry. I am quite comfortable with all those math subjects in even more detail than used in SAS and do not see any problem coaching anyone in this area of math.

Great Calculus Help

Shiraz is so knowledgeable. His teaching experience was obvious and he explained things to my son clearly. He shows concern and understanding of his students and inspires confidence.

Gives it his all and then some!

Shiraz was instrumental in helping my son prepare for his college freshman year in mechanical engineering. My son decided to pursue this major at the end of his junior year and was quite behind in both calculus and physics. Shiraz patiently tutored my son throughout the summer in both calculus and physics, and my son successully completed college calculas with a B, and is now taking physics and enjoying it. Shiraz does give it his all to make sure the student understands the subject. I highly recommend this professional.
