Arjun J. says, "Mr. Ghassemi is a very great tutor. In fact, I would say that he is better than my teacher at school. The main reason behind this is because he goes in depth with the lessons and gives numerous practice problems, both MCQ and FRQ for me [student] to understand. He also gives detailed solutions to each one and works with the student had they got it wrong or simply do not understand. When a student simply does not understand, he is extremely patient and listens to their ideas and provides an explanation if their ideas are correct, if they are wrong he makes sure to delve deeper into the concepts that are required for the optimal understanding of that problem. He also makes sure you understand the concptual reasoning behind each question. Mr. Ghassemi is definitely highly qualified in both Maths and Physics. He spends a lot of time on his own apart from the one on one student session to work each problem out before hand and sometimes even provides multiple approaches or solutions regarding how to solve the questions. He helps with both preparing for the AP Exams as well as preparing for unit tests and homework given by the school. I would definitely recommend Mr. Ghassemi to anyone requiring a high quality tutor that gives high quality services!" Read more

Many people are good at Statistics,Probability, and coding but few are good at teaching it. You may be experiencing that in a class right now - the teacher knows a lot about the subject, but isn't skilled at conveying that knowledge to you. I pride my self on working hard to empathesize with you, the student, and the challenges and struggles you are having at mastering the materials.I work hard to understand where you are now, where you want to get to, and then I use my experience with dozens of other students to map out a study plan to get you from where you are to where you want to be.
