About this tutor

I am currently working as a full-time freelance tutor at Sky Tutoring Services. I began working for my start-up tutoring business as a teaching consultant in January 2010. I am a motivated and energetic USC alumnus (Graduate studies in Biomedical Engineering) and UCBerkeley graduate (B.S. '04 in Engineering Physics) with over 17 years of tutoring experience to middle school, high school, and undergraduate students in a variety of topics. I have extensive experience in applying many of the topics I tutor through hands-on research experience in world-class research institutions such as Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, IBM Almaden Research Center, California Institute of Technology, University of California at Berkeley, University of Rochester, and Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich, Switzerland.

    Sepehr is an excellent tutor. He is very dedicated to his students and goes above and beyond to help them succeed. His knowledge of physics and chemistry is excellent and is very good at explaining key concepts it a concise manner that makes a very complex subject like physics much more manageable. I contacted Sepehr after receiving my first midterm grade and with 1.5 months of hard work and tutoring, I was able to drastically improve my grade in both subjects. Thank you Sepehr for your teaching and dedication.

    I would like to recommend Sepehr as an Algebra, Geometry and Chemistry tutor. He has tutored my daughter in these 3 subjects during the past 7 months and her understanding of the subject matter and her grades have improved significantly. His knowledge of the subject matter is outstanding. He has the ability and communication skills to take complex and complicated materials and make them easy to understand. My daughter looks forward to her tutor sessions with him. He has taken 3 very hard and boring subjects and made them exciting and fun to learn. I whole heartedly would recommend him for anyone who needs assistance with Algebra, Geometry or Chemistry. He truly is a professional. If you are looking for a tutor in any of these subjects, both my daughter and I agree, he is the "Best".

  • Gabrielle Butler

    Very willing to accommodate requests about what content I needed to go over for my class, and super informative about any questions I had about physics. I got an A in physics, and in a large part it’s because of Sky Tutoring services!

    I remember being so lost and so confused when I first started out in the CS field in college. It was hard getting by class and understanding what was actually going on. One of the biggest reasons was that I never had a CS background back in high school. With the already fast pace of the class, the lack of a CS background made things exponentially harder to the point where I just felt like I was falling back behind the other students. Understanding my situation, I went through several tutors to try to catch up, but none of which really showed me how to go about completing a project. Instead, they just told me the answers, so I ended up learning nothing. They helped me survive school, but I wanted to excel in it. This "show not tell" style of teaching, the most effective in my opinion, is a skill that Sky Tutoring has mastered. My tutor understood my situation from the very beginning of our sessions and even developed a personal plan for me to learn as much as possible. He knew right away, which fundamental concepts I lacked and which concepts I was already strong in. Many tutors before were able to get me the grades I wanted, but Sky Tutoring gave me the fundamentals and more. Learning and understanding is the number one priority of Sky Tutoring; thanks to my tutor, I felt at ease whenever I had an upcoming cs project. For grades, you can go to any tutor. But for gaining a refined set of skills that can last you a lifetime, I highly recommend Sky Tutoring.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

During our first session I assess the students understanding of the subject and identify which areas we need to focus on. I will then devise a personalized learning plan for my student and start taking immediate steps in helping my student understand the subject matter better and therefore enjoy the learning process.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I am currently working as a full-time freelance tutor at Sky Tutoring Services. I began working for my start-up tutoring business as a teaching consultant in January 2010. I am a motivated and energetic USC alumnus (Graduate studies in Biomedical Engineering) and UCBerkeley graduate (B.S.

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

My sessions are all 2 hours long and the rate is $60 per hour so it will be $120 for the 2-hour session.


What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with students from various age groups and subject levels from elementary school to graduate school.


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Do your homework and don't hire someone because they charge a cheaper rate. Carefully examine the teacher's background, qualifications, and experience in teaching.


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

The students should communicate as well as they can what they feel like is missing in their education and why they feel like seeing a private tutor can be a good solution. If a student is really committed to learning, it makes the whole learning process easier and more fun.
