Sample feedback from students:
"Mr Khan was extremely helpful. He explained concepts I struggled to understand in class in a thorough and concise manner. As well, he maintained a friendly, patient atmosphere at all times. He offered advice on external sources I could use to help study for tests or to hekp understand future concepts... Mr. Khan has taught me more Calculus this year than I have learned in my Calculus class."
"He was extremely knowledgeable and provides very good motivation. He is among the best teachers I have ever had."
"Yaser was able to bring a perspective to the studied material that the Professor could not convey based [on] stuyle and the duration of lectures. He has been able to clarify difficult problems with clear examples and even offered additional information outside the scope of the course and alternative methods for proofs of fundamental concepts. I am very impressed that Yaser has been able to instantaneously respond to questions in an Advanced Quantum Mechanics course; he has been incalculably helpful."
"Many tutors usually just answer questions and would be reluctant to answer questions about university life or even ... ask you how your first year adjustment [at University] was going. Yaser tried to understand what other subjects I was taking and even helped me with time management and test taking skills."
Hobbies- Popularizing science: organized the successful Harry Potter and Science seminar series at the University of Toronto
- Interested in exploring ideas at the intersection of the physical sciences, psychology, behavioral economics and abstract algebraic modeling
- Languages: learning Mandarin, Arabic, and French
