Method of Teaching:
Working for many years with students with diverse intellectual abilities and points of weakness or strength, I learned how to formulate the appropriate plan for each individual. I believe that the following factors have made the most contribution to the attractiveness and efficiency of my classes:
Explaining each topic based on the students’ abilities
Using real-life examples to simplify mathematical concepts
Assuring the students’ understanding of one topic before moving to the next one
Solving numerous examples
Encouraging students’ questioning to clarify their doubts and to express their opinions
Assigning inclusive homework problems
HobbiesPlaying soccer and volleyball, vocalizing classical music, and studying economics and current events.

I really enjoy working with Dr. M. He is very patient and kind and really makes sure I understand the material so that I can advance in my studies. He also has been very flexible with meeting and always is available to answer some of my questions! I really enjoy working with him and have advanced highly in my studies and grades this year with his aid.
Dr. M not only made learning Calculus easier, but he made it fun. Math is by far my weakest and worst subject and Dr. M was the reason I made it through the class with a great grade. I could go on and on about how much he helped me but my words do not do his service and tutoring justice. Without him, I would not have done as well as I did in the class, let alone learn the subject. He was always on time and always responded to my e-mails and texts in a prompt and professional manner. I would HIGHLY recommend him for anything, and am so grateful for all his help. Dr. M is the one to call and rely on, he won't let you down.
Dr. M was terrific to work with. He eased my daughter's concerns and addressed her weaknesses. He was quickly able to meet her needs specific to the pending test she was concerned with. He also was responsive to inquiries and accommodated our scheduling needs. I give him highest praise and strongly recommend him for your math tutoring needs.
Dr. M was awesome! I haven't taken a math class in 7 years and only had about one week to prepare for the math section of the GRE. Dr. M explained all of the different concepts very well. Overall I am very pleased with my score and I highly recommend Dr. M to anyone who needs to relearn math all over again!
Dr. M tutored me for the GRE and I found his instruction very helpful. He has a real passion for teaching and is able to explain different concepts in a simple manner as well as being very encouraging and positive. In addition, he is very flexible with his schedule and locations.
Dr. M was extremely knowledgeable in the field of Structural Dynamics. He was very accomodating to my schedule, and proved to be an invaluable resource during the semester. I would highly recommend him to anyone.
Dr. M has been awesome! I hired him to help me with statistics. He was extremely responsive in contacting me and quickly set up a time to come tutor me. He was patient and was able to put the material into plain English, which is hard to do! I would highly recommend him to anyone andI will continue to use him during my doctoral work.
DR. M was tremendous in providing the assistance I needed to understand Managerial Statistics. He helped me with the concepts and the homework. Without DR. M, I wouldn't have done as well in the class as I did. I would definitely recommend DR. M.
We contacted Dr. M 2 weeks ago for help getting ready for the SAT subject test Math II and Physics for my son Robert. Robert is enjoying the sessions and says he doesn't even realize the time has passed. Dr M is methodical in that he goes through the test material and carefully notes the areas of weakness for more review and he organizes the study time before the testing day to include practice tests. We feel like we have a new friend and someone who is on our side during this otherwise stressful time of test taking and college applications. We feel very fortunate to have found Dr, M and recommend him with 5 stars! Nancy
Dr. M's hourly cost and meeting locations just didn't work for us. However, he seemed very knowledgeable and quite capable of tutoring.
Working with Dr. M was the best decision I made during my Trig course this summer, I wish I contacted him much sooner. Not only is he incredibly talented and smart, he has the ability to teach and explain the criteria perfectly. I only had about 2 weeks until my final and I was really struggling. Regardless of what level you are in your study he can have an impact on your knowledge & understanding resulting in greater confidence & better grades.
Dr. M was wonderful. I contacted him at the last minute to help my son in his Calculus 2 class. He was barely hanging on with a 70 average with just 2 tests left in the course and just 4 days between the test. Dr. M agreed to see him immediately and worked with him twice in 3 days. We can't believe it but my son just saw his final grade and he finished the class with a "B". Thank you so much Dr. M. I'm so lucky to have found such a great tutor.
If you ever need any tutoring, Dr. M is the best choice. He is always available and can answer even the most complex questions; his education and work experience are obviously the contributing factors to his in-depth level of understanding. He helped me understand how to break down those larger, confusing numbers and equations into their simpler form. He also makes up hard problems from scratch and then shows you how to do them. Dr. M is definitely one of the smartest people I know and it is an honor just to say he helped me.
I was very worried about finding a statistics tutor who would be able to help me understand because I was so far behind in my class. However, Mofid was the absolute best tutor and I felt so fortunate. In fact, I had spoken to several different tutors and made arrangements to meet with different ones to see which one fit my needs best. After meeting Mofid, I knew I needed to look no further. For example, he had a way of explaining and bringing me into the conversation in a way that gave me confidence and understanding of any objective I was needing to work on. Further, I was very impressed with his in depth knowledge and desire to help me meet my educational goals. I would highly recommend Mofid as a tutor for any level of mathematics because he is professional, personable, and highly skilled in both mathematics and communication dialogue that can be understood and applied. In fact, I tell everyone I know of with kids or going back to school how impressed I was with his professionalism, demeanor, knowledge, and ability to communicate the objectives in a way that I understood. He will be first on my list to ever call again, without a doubt, should I need a tutor in the future!
This is the best tutor we have ever utilized. He is intelligent, thorough, patient, organized and articulate. My son loved working with him and remarked several times that were Dr. M. his teacher, he wouldn't need a tutor. He is accessible and sincerely cares about the classroom success of the students he tutors. He very successfully tailors his tutelage to the student and the academeic goals being sought. I unequivocally reccomend him to anyone seeking a tutor who produces results in a professional and respectful fashion.
