PhD student of sociology with background in electrical engineering

As the son of two dedicated and passionate teachers (chemistry and literature), learning has been always my passion. And as much as I enjoy learning, I get a deep sense of gratification by helping others learn. You have probably heard the proverb: "Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man how to catch fish and you feed him for a lifetime". To me, learning is a life-long endeavor and it requires persistence and attention to detail. My attention to detail in studying how thin... [more]


Algebra 1


American History


Calculus

Calculus was always one of my favorite subjects in school and that was one of the reasons that I chose to study electrical engineering in college. I have tutored calculus at different grades.


Vocabulary


Grammar

Grammar may not sound like a fun subject, but proper and clear communication is the key to success in professional as well as everyday life. As the son of a teacher who excelled in teaching grammar, I started honing my grammatical skills from an early age. I helped classmates and friends learn grammar and while tutoring different languages to non-native speakers, emphasizing proper grammar was an integral part of my job.


European History


General Computer

I have grown up with computers since the time they were developed for personal use in the 80s, and all along the way, I have helped people learn how to use them. I have tutored and taught classes on general computer usage, operating systems and software.

Precalculus


Reading

I started reading books at the age of 5 and newspapers at the age of 7 and reading has been always my most favorite hobby, for pleasure of enjoying literature to the necessity of learning about new ideas and thoughts. Critical thinking and contemplating what is behind the words is the most important part of reading and that is what I help my students practice.


Writing


Geography


English


ESL/ESOL

I learned English as a second language (as well as some other languages) and hence, I understand the challenges of learning a foreign language. The key to success in communication in any foreign language is thinking in that language, instead of memorizing words and trying to translate one's thoughts into the target language. That means acquiring mastery of vocabulary and grammar through reading original texts to understand how native speakers use phrases and sentences.

World History


Spelling


Elementary Math

Math was always one of my favorite subjects in school and that was one of the reasons that I chose to study electrical engineering in college. I have tutored math at different grades.


Elementary Science

I was fascinated with how things work since I was a little kid (and that explains why I ended up studying electrical engineering and working as an engineer). My approach to science was always to get to the bottom of physical concepts and to try to explain physical phenomena through scientific methods. I try to instill the same in my students learning science.


Networking (Computer)

While I was an undergraduate student of electrical engineering, I worked and taught in our computer lab. I have also tutored basics of computers, programming languages (BASICS, SigSys and MatLab), software and networking. I have tutored networking after graduation as well. I have also obtained certificates in networking.


Anthropology

I am a PhD student of sociology and I have got my Master's degree in sociology from the University of Toledo.

Farsi

Farsi (Persian) is my native language and I am very good in Persian literature. I helped non-native speakers learn Farsi and also helped my classmates in school with Persian literature and grammar.


Macintosh

While I was an undergraduate student of electrical engineering, I worked and taught in our computer lab. I was versatile with both PC and Mac and troubleshooting Mac computers in the lab was part of my responsibilities. I have tutored Mac OS in and outside university
