Over 15 years tutoring experience
Online and in-person lessons
Dallas – Plano – Frisco – Mckinney
My name is Bahram, I have a Ph.D. in Electronics Engineering from University of Technology Sydney, Australia. I have been teaching and tutoring for more than 15 years in person-to-person, online, and classroom sessions from elementary level to college level.
As a matter of fact, teaching has always been my dream job because of its challenging nature. Firstly, learning is always included since learning and teaching are inseparable companions; furthermore, there is no unique way of teaching. It varies from student to student, content to content, and even teacher to teacher. It is the art of a teacher to use his/her experience and knowledge to make learning enjoyable, student curious, and at the same time be specific, concise, and progressive.
Math is important!
Algebra, Trigonometry, and Calculus are the fundamentals of mathematics. They are involved in many real-world situations and careers such as engineering, construction, and architecture. Thus, understanding of both areas is necessary for success in any endeavor which requires a mathematical background. Algebra is the study of math with rules, equations, and variables. It teaches sets, commutative properties, and associative properties. Trigonometry deals with triangles and their measurements; and uses sine, cosine, and tangent to solve equations. Both Algebra and Trigonometry are important to learn and a strong knowledge of them is needed prior to entering into any calculus courses. Calculus, on the other hand, is the branch of mathematics that deals with the finding and properties of derivatives and integrals of functions.
Learning Math is fun!
Based on years of teaching experience and be familiar with both student-centered and teacher-centered teaching methods, I believe that learning happens much better and faster in a smooth and friendly environment, and through fun activities. Math could be fun if students and teachers cooperate in a conceptual learning procedure.
However, as a tutor point of view I believe the general tutoring procedure should be as follows:
- Pinpoint student problems, make an appropriate plan and solve the problems.
- Teach the concept through examples and problem-solving approach.
- Solve various types of examples from simple to complex in order to improve the student’s critical thinking and problem-solving skills.
- Evaluate students through assignments.
If you are looking for a skilled and enthusiastic individual with extensive experience supporting students in meeting academic challenges and preparing for examinations in the area of mathematics, it is my pleasure to be of assistance.
