I'm a graduate of Shiraz University, and I grew up in Shiraz, Iran. I came to the USA in 2009 and I am trying to transfer to dental school. While I tutor a variety of subjects, math is easily my favorite. I love basic math, algebra, calculus and everything in between, and it shows in my work. My mom was a teacher, and she helped me to pick up my first problem solving position in high school. Since then, I've worked with students from ninth grade to adults returning to the classroom, students struggling to pass to students wanting to attend (or get into!) a special high school or college. I am a math and science tutor at Austin Community College as well as a DAT (Dental Admission Test) instructor for Kaplan Test Preparation. Most students come to me for math, but I've also worked with standardized test preparation, chemistry, biology, physics, statistics, and time management. Math and science classes are really just elaborate puzzles to solve, and most of my students learn to enjoy the process of figuring out what to do once I help them develop the confidence and skill set they need to be successful. Not everyone loves science courses, especially math but I do, and it's contagious. In my free time, I like to explore Austin with my friends: from coffee shops to parks to museums. This is a really fun city! I also enjoy listening to all kinds of music, swimming and reading a good book.
