Hello!

My name is Shahab Zareyan.

And I offer online tutoring for math & calculus courses.

I strive to create a non-judgmental, safe environment where students feel comfortable asking questions and exploring their confusion. There are no stupid questions! We can take as much time as you need to explore a problem.

Rate: $65 for 55 minutes

Please note that I do not help with writing of exams.

## Exam Prep. Strategy

I usually use the following recipe when preparing students for an exam:

#### Theory Review

I will summarize the course material for the student and go over some of the 'theory' basics they need to know for the exam.

#### Categorization

Exam questions come from premeditated "question categories." I will identify & provide the student with a list of these.

#### Practice

I will guide the student through several practice exams to make sure they are used to answering questions under time pressure.

Categorization is the most important step. Once a student understands how to approach each "type" of question, they are likely to be able to answer any question on any exam, even if they have not encountered any of the specific questions before, even if they have a poor understanding of the theory, and even if they have not done any of the practice exams. Thus, my main focus will be on Categorization.
