I am a high school math teacher. I teach Algebra, Geometry, Trig, and Calculus to 9th-12th graders. My hands on experience with children will be useful in relating to your child in one-on-one tutoring.
ACT test prep is a specialty of mine. I have had countless success in preparing juniors for their ACT test. Energetically, I debate the finer points of English, Reading, Math, and Science to help students get an inherent understanding of the questions. To do this, I assist students in specific strategies that really do work to increase scores. I promise that their anxiety will be replaced by a higher test score.
Through a website such as this one, I think being a little personal in building a relationship is very important. So, let me introduce myself. My name is Saman, in Persian meaning "settled-down". It's been a journey coming this far in my life, but I'm finally where I want to be in my profession as a full-time math teacher. My experience as an educator has taught me to engage students by positive encouragement and to share my knowledge/ideas by experimenting intellectually with my students. I do what it takes to motivate them by listening and patiently changing my ways of teaching to fit their needs.
WHAT A JOURNEY...
I've always found math to be invigorating. Early on, I started peer mentoring in high school. As I went on to college, I majored in Mathematics, at Indiana University of Bloomington, and assisted professors proctor exams, grade homework/quizzes, and tutored students in a professional setting.
Recently, I went on and finished my masters in Education. During which, I worked closely with Evanston Township High School students in a program called AVID. Following this, I went on to teach full time in CPS. Each, I facilitate students and modeled critical inquiry, higher level thinking, and collaborative problem solving methods with the goal of developing skills for college and career readiness.
HobbiesCurrently volunteering at the YMCA one weekend a month, teach classes about good study tips. Facilitated with ACT test taking center. Also, I have tutored MBA students and students majoring in Finance and Accounting. In addition, I have tutored students in Middle School and High School. My qualifications exceed my services; however, I appreciate my offerings because it keeps me on top of the best strategies to teach students. I am highly passionate about teaching and it stems from my talent in tutoring students.
