EducationPhD of Organic Chemistry (Graduated in May 2015) @ University of Maryland College park
Master of Science in Polymer and Organic Chemistry
B.s. Pure Chemistry
ExperienceI've been studying Chemistry for more than 11 years and my specialty is organic chemistry. I have been teaching so many courses in general, biochem and organic chemistry over the last 9 years and have so much passion in teaching. In college park, I have been teaching assistant of many professors and I'm very well informed of their teaching styles and expectations. If you need any help with Chemistry don't hesitate to contact me. I have been awarded 3 times in my PhD program as the best teaching assistant and have been awarded 4 fellowships in teaching
Here are a list of few teaching awards:
-Certificate of teaching from the University Teaching and Learning Program, University of Maryland, College Park, MD.
- Distinguished Teaching Assistant Award-Carl L. Robinson Teaching Award, University of Maryland, College Park, 2011
- International teaching fellowship from College of Teaching and Excellence, University of Maryland, College Park, 2010.
Here are few of my student reviews:
I learned much of the material from the book and Soheila rather than lecture.
I learned most the content from lecture in discussion (by this TA).
Soheila is definitely an angel sent down to teach us organic chemistry. She's a beautiful human being and the probably the most helpful TA I've ever had.
Organized, very helpful
The TA helped us more than the actual lecture professor.
Excellent TA, incredibly helpful. Did an excellent job clarifying material and practicing problems.
The TA was AWESOME!!!
Very easy to learn from. Made everything very clear and simple and made sure to answer questions to the best of her abilities. Discussions were extremely beneficial to course because of the TA
she was great and helped as with pdf worksheets, but the professor still screwed us ya habibi
Best TA I've ever had
she was amazing, felt bad for her though as she was paired with this professor.
Love her teaching style, learned so much more in discussion than in lecture.
She's the only one who made any sense of the content when teaching it to us
Soheila was A LOT more helpful in communicating the course material than Professor. She made it a lot more easier to understand reactions. She also let us know what material we should be focusing on before exams which I think helped my exam performance a lot (even though my grades were still unsatisfactory).
She was such a huge help!
So helpful!! Awesome teacher.
Soheila is a really great teacher, and without her I don't think I would have known any of the material. She explained things very clearly and was always available to help with any problems that you may have had.
SOHELIA IS AMAZING. I would record her during discussion because I honestly found that 50 minute period more beneficial than the3 hours spent in lecture every week. She was very straightforward and explained the material in a way the students can actually learn. I learned more from Soheila than Dr......
Sohelia is a great TA she knows organic chemistry!! She was very helpful I thoroughly enjoyed having her as a TA
She single handedly taught the course and made up for a terrible professor. Soheila is one of THE best TA's I've ever had.
Soheila was an incredible effective TA! While Dr. ....focused on big picture concepts in lecture, Soheila did a great job of describing important mechanisms and synthesis problems in a straight forward, easy to understand method. The two together made a great duo. Soheila's choice of practice problems were also very helpful
Sohelia was half of the reason why I did well in this class. She's a fantastic TA and a really nice person, and I think averages would have been much higher if she taught the lecture too.
You are great and VERY pretty! You helped my grade out so much!!
Teaching style was excellent. Learned more from her than I did from the professor
Soheila is the only reason I am even passing this class. She is a genius when it comes to Organic Chemistry and she is very kind and responsive to student concerns. She is one of the best TA's I have had during my time here at Maryland
The only reason I was able to learn any of the material was because of how great of a TA Soheila was. She presented everything clearly and answered any questions people had. She made an effort to help students learn and really tried to prepare us for the exams.
Outstanding TA, one of the best I've had. I learned so much more in a 50 minute discussion than I did in lecture.
Soheila did a wonderful job of clarifying initially opaque concepts. Her discussion sections were helpful and I attended them of my own volition and desire to learn from her and not out of some sense of requirement.
Soheila was really helpful. I was completely confused and lost in lecture, but the discussion section with Soheila really clarified the material.
Soheila is an awesome ta, she was very effective and organized and taught content very well
the best TA i've had for a science class yet
Soheila was amazing; she was very responsive and really cared about the students. She took the extra step to make sure everyone was able to learn.
Sohelia was really good she would help me understand what was going on in the class. I think I learned more in discussion then I did in class.
Very Good TA
Many people, including myself, believe that Soheila was so helpful and taught material better and more clearly than the professor. She was also easier to approach for help and did a better job explaining things to people. She seemed really concerned about students' grades and their understanding and performance in the course.
Best TA I've ever had, she genuinely seems to care about how we perform on exams and goes the extra mile to help us out.
very considerate, taught me the class and course information better than the teacher did
HobbiesI enjoy watching movies and documentaries.
I love kayaking and rowing. I paint and read most of my time. I have passion in organic chemistry, biochemistry, genetics and structural biology.
Client Reviews (4)
Soheila is very nice and seems extremely knowledgeable. I really liked the effective summary that she provides. She is very responsive and easy to approach right before my exams.
Excellent! Very prepared, knowledgeable, on time. Very responsive to and clearly cared about me doing well. I often learned more from soheila than I did from university lecturers. She always bring Additional worksheets for practice A+.
I'm surprised that she is not an organic chemistry professor at UMD. She is incredibly knowledgeable in the field and relates to her students really well. She does all she can in 1 hour and makes it super effective. She helped me so much and without her help, I would have probably dropped the class. She was a great source of supplemental information and must compliment her for putting a significant amount of her effort into teaching. It shows she's a really compassionate, conscientious, and personable individual.
Soheila is a great tutor! She put a lot of time and thought into preparing for the session. She always bring me sample exams and problems and she's great at explaining the material and all around an awesome person!
