My own life experience has made me an optimist that anybody can improve their skills in math, as long as you stick to it! I went from nearly flunking out of geometry in ninth grade (I had to go down to the lowest section in my grade) to excellent scores in math achievement and SAT tests, and survival while earning BS and MS degrees in geophysics at MIT. More recently, I tutored my son in college calculus, and was able to witness him going from low proficiency to an A in his final exam in the class. A good math tutor should be able to make even the most difficult concepts simple. Math should be (almost) fun! It's my goal to keep it simpl...

Reviews for Arlington math tutors

Recent success stories from people in the Arlington area.
Arjun J.
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!
