I graduated from California State University Northridge (CSUN) with a BS degree in electrical engineering. As an engineering student, I have a solid knowledge of mathematics, and my engineering experience has given me an insight into the way in which mathematics relates to real life applications. I have always been very passionate about teaching and my ultimate goal is to obtain my PhD and become a professor. I worked at CSUN as a math teacher for college algebra and also tutored numerous stu... [more]
I have been tutoring Algebra 1 since I finished my middle school. Over the course of about 14 years of tutoring Algebra 1, I have been able to develop effective techniques of simplifying math problems for students and teach them how to improve their speed in understanding and solving those problems.
I have tutored Algebra 2 to middle school and high school students for more than 10 years. Since I started my engineering program at California State University Northridge, I worked as a Supplemental Instruction Leader aka "SI Leader" for their college Algebra course which is in fact Algebra 1 and Algebra 2 combined. Throughout these years, my experience enabled me to help students understand their subjects better and quickly build the confidence they would need to succeed in their exams.
During my high school years I was more focused on my math and physics courses to prepare myself for Engineering school. I took Trigonometry in 9th grade right after Algebra. I started applying my Trig knowledge in Physics mechanics in 11th grade. At the same time, I started tutoring trig to other students. After starting my Electrical Engineering program I worked as math tutor for almost all lower division math courses at CSUN math tutoring center. I have also tutored students privately. With my experience I have been able to teach the concepts to my students and help them learn the subject rather than memorizing the formulas and identities.
As an Electrical Engineering major I have been utilizing Differential Equations and its applications heavily in my courses. My engineering experience has given me a deep insight and understanding of differential equations. I have also tutored differential equations at CSUN to students majored in either math and electrical engineering for three years.
Persian, also known as Farsi, is my first language. I was born and raised in Iran and thus I am very fluent both in writing and speaking Persian. During my school years I took numerous courses in either Persian literature and grammar. I have always enjoyed reading, researching and exploring Persian literature.
I have a bachelor's degree in electrical engineering. As an electrical engineering student I have worked as instructional assistant, tutor and grader for Electrical Circuits (ECE 240) and Linear Systems (ECE 350) for the Electrical Engineering department at CSUN.
