Comments on Group Tutorials Led by Math Coordinator Yoosef Khadem
Yoosef is the greatest! Don't let him leave!
Yoosef is the best! Extraordinary and dedicated to helping UB students succeed.
Yoosef, I just wanted to say thanks. I have never gotten a 110 on any exam in my life...couldn't have done it without your help!
Love Yoosef, he is very patient. I encouraged many other students to utilize the service.
He was great. I had confidence in him. (He taught me another class, so I knew tutoring would be worth it.)
I would not have made it through without Dr. Khadem. He was great.
Please thank Yoosef; I hope he is available for my other OPRE classes.
He was one of the best ever, very supportive, caring & knowledgeable.
I received a B+ in Statistics! Thank you again for all you did for me and the class. I would not have gotten thru this class with out your help.
He has taught me that math can be challenging, but not impossible to comprehend. All of his hard work has instilled confidence in my ability to pass math classes. Whenever I had an exam in Algebra and OPRE, he would encourage me to do my best and just try to concentrate on everything that I have learned. I felt good that I was able to let him know that I did well on my exams. Yoosef is an excellent tutor and makes learning math a joy instead of distress.
Yoosef Khadem is one of the best teachers I've had. He will answers any question and give his full attention when needed. It was enjoyable. If I did not pass the course I would have had no one to blame but myself.
I really appreciated the pre-course tutoring. It made the online course go very smoothly. When I hit a "bump in the road" I was able to schedule a private tutoring session and it straightened me out completely. I was able to continue the course with confidence. Thank you for this wonderful service.
I know that the Saturday group tutorials would have also helped but with my crazy work schedule, I could never make it. I saw Dr. Khadem individually which helped a lot, but I think if there was something available during the week, and not just on Saturdays, it would help a lot more.
Dr. Khadem was great. His tutorial sessions were handled just like a lecture. Also he provided great handout to help us during regular class lectures.
I am very thankful that he was there. He is a spectacular tutor. I wouldn't have done so well in the class without his guidance.
Dr. Khadem saved this class for me. I could tell that he actually enjoyed the subject and that he truly wanted us to learn the material. Thank you!
Yoosef's enthusiasm about the topic and his dedication to the tutoring group was amazing. He conducted around 8 weeks of group tutoring and it was not even for a class he was responsible for. I am sincerely grateful for Yoosef time and commitment.
Going to these tutorials is the only thing that helped me and a lot of other students pass this class. The handouts were great!
I just want to let you know that your tutoring is helping me a lot. I understood from your tutoring a lot. If I didn't took your class, I don't know what can I know, but since I took your class, I got the "A."
Very, very helpful due to the effort of the instructor.
Yoosef should be commended for his exceptional tutoring services during spring 2008 semester. In my opinion, Yoosef went above and beyond. . . He met with a large group of students consistently the entire semester on Saturday mornings. He assisted a number of students who were willing to work hard to achieve a firm understanding of a difficult subject. Yoosef overcame communication challenges with the professor and was able to continue his tutorial sessions. Yoosef was a pleasure to work with and exceeded my expectations from a tutoring point of view. You can tell he cares about his students and wants them to succeed.
I am grateful for Yoosef's willingness to help students excel academically in math. He is truly an asset to the Academic Resource Center. Yoosef unselfishly devotes so much of his time in assisting students reach math goals that they never thought they could attain. I am so thankful for all of his help throughout my short time at UB. I would highly recommend Yoosef to any student at UB that needs assistance in math courses.
Yoosef Khadem was initially referred to me by a co-worker who graduated from UB a few years and had him as a math tutor. The Algebra class was very intense so I took advantage of the opportunity of attending weekly individual tutor sessions as well as the group sessions that Yoosef formed for my Algebra class. After successfully passing the Algebra class, I enrolled in the next course and was a little hesitant because I heard so many students say that the class was very difficult to pass. I informed Yoosef of my concern about the next course and he assured me that with tutoring and studying hard that I would be fine. He simplified problems that we went over in class so that it was more understandable. He has tremendously helped me to build my confidence in taking math courses because math has been difficult for me in the past. I am happy to say that weekly tutorial sessions and independent studying at home has enabled me to receive a B+!
I found the tutoring sessions invaluable!
Yoosef was excellent, I would recommend him to all individuals who are having trouble with statistics or research method courses.
Yoosef was consistent in his approach and was ready on weekdays or weekends to help me in any way he could. He also made studying interesting.
Yoosef was kind and patient with all of us. He actually made statistics enjoyable!
Professor Khadem was always available to provide tutoring to us. Business statistics was a very challenging course for me. With Prof. Khadem's patience I was able to earn an "A" in a class which I did not think possible early in the semester. Prof. Khadem instilled confidence in us that we could learn and succeed in this class. Myself and others owe our good grades to Prof. Khadem.
