Information About Arman
This is how 2 referees rated Arman:
I am a PhD holder of Mathematics from UBC, and a full-time Math instructor in Columbia College, Vancouver, with a lot of one-to-one tutoring and in-class teaching experience. When I started my PhD program, I started working as a Math tutor at Math learning Centre in the Math department. In addition to that, I was the TA for different undergraduate courses, and I taught Calculus I and Calculus II as the instructor at UBC. I started working as a Math instructor in Columbia College since 2014. I have been teaching in this college as a full-time regular Math instructor since 2017. During this time, I have taught many 1st and 2nd year university-level Math courses and gained a lot of experience for teaching students with wide range of backgrounds, from very weak to very strong. I am willing to tutor all high school level and university level Math courses.
-As the instructor in college: Precalculus, Calculus I, II (both for Science/Engineering students and Economics/Business students), Calculus III (multivariable), Linear Algebra, Discrete Mathematics I, II, Probability and Statistics
-As the instructor at UBC: Math 100 (Differential Calculus), Math 101 (Integral Calculus).
-Head-TA of Math 180 at UBC
-TA at Math Leanring Centre at UBC
-Private Tutor of different high school level and university-level Math courses at Greater Vancouver since 2012.
My tutoring approach and more generally teaching approach is an active student based approach, not a one that one always speaks and one listens. After many years of teaching, I have the ability to figure out my student(s) level and background in Math in the first few minutes of teaching. Then, based on my estimation, I adjust the level of teaching and explanations for details. For example, if I have a student with a very weak background, I include every detail for every topic and problem, even the elementary algebra, and I also do a quick review for the related topics. This review can be a review from how one adds fractions in a Precalculus class, or can be a conceptual review of derivatives and its properties in one variable in a Calculus III (multivariable) class.
As stated by my students, one of the main features of my teaching style is that it is very "conceptual" and focused on the reasons and rationale of every step when I explain about a topic or problem, and at the same time explaining the general ideas behind it. Moreover, I normally teach more than one approach/solution for different topics/problems and I found my students very interested in this approach of mine as each approach/solution is more understandable for a particular group of students.
