My younger brother succeeded in his college math exams thanks to Nema Taghavi's tutoring. He provided my younger brother with great strategies to excel. His tutoring sessions provided my younger brother with confidence to succeed. My brother earned high marks at the end of his college math course. I highly recommend Nema Taghavi.Oct 28, 2018VerifiedNema Taghavi Math & Stat professor (Retired)'s reply
Thank you Karen for taking the time to write a review. It was a pleasure to help your brother with his college math course.
Nema really really helped me a lot. I ended up passing the course with the grade I wanted (B). He was able to identify my weakness (algebra) and we worked to improve it, he would give me problems related to my weakness so that I would do good on the main problems which were calc related. Nema was very patient with me, knowing that my mother tongue is not english, he would find easy ways to explain the word problems which were one of my main difficulties too. He also taught me shortcuts to solve some problems such as U substitution. He really knows how to teach/tutor and he cares about the student, Nema made sure I understood the topics during our sessions and if not he would give homework so I could practice more. His availability is 5 stars, he was available to help during texts and calls whenever he could. There would be breaks during our sessions which help me to get more focused, Nema has good sense of humor and knows how to keep a person calm and confident, I've got into many situations where I was very nervous or insecure about an exam/quiz and he got me very calm, secure and confident about myself in math. I don't know how to thank him about his help but if I need help in another math related course I'll definitely ask him for help.Aug 22, 2017VerifiedNema Taghavi Math & Stat professor (Retired)'s reply
Thank you Malua for taking the time to write this review. Your hard work paid off and I'm very fortunate to be a small part of it. Keep up the great work you are doing.

My daughter has come across many tutors, but non like Nema. Simply put – Nema is passionate about learning; an essential characteristic of any tutor. He empowers you to master the art of math in a way I have not seen before. I’ve observed his method of story-telling and repetition to help my daughter learn math concepts. In a matter of three visits, she has learned trigonometry and then some. What I also value is the reinforcement work that Nema leaves her with after each visit. I am utterly pleased with Nema’s performance and his price range, which many families can work with.Aug 30, 2017Verified
Nema is a very good tutor. He is very knowledgeable and knows how to incorporate mathematical strategies to help you reach your specific math goals.Jul 18, 2017VerifiedNema Taghavi Math & Stat professor (Retired)'s reply
Thank you Raheem. More sessions to come.
Nema was a kind and extremely knowledgeable tutor. He helped to break down complex concepts for my college-level trigonometry/pre-calculus courses and was able to make the lessons easier to understand. He also has a unique ability to connect nebulous theories to real-world scenarios, which really helps for someone who is a hands-on learner, like myself. After working with him, I received high marks in the class, and went on to complete a degree in international affairs and global health. I now work in international development finance. More than 4 years later, I still remember his humor, skill, humility, patience and mentorship. I would highly recommend him to anyone at any level looking to develop a better understanding and appreciation for math and statistics.May 19, 2017
