Dr. Atajan has been working with my son, who is now a first year at UVA, since he was in high school. In addition to being an excellent tutor, I cannot say enough about how kind, responsive, and flexible he has been. When my son decided he could use a little extra help in preparing for his calculus final this semester, I knew I could count on Dr. Aajan to make time for us. As a result, my son feels much more confident and prepared. Working with Dr. Atajan over these last few years has been a truly wonderful experience. I cannot recommend him highly enough!

Dr. Atajan tutored my daughter in calculus BC, multivariable calculus, and linear algebra in high school. Now my daughter is attending a top university. Dr. Atajan is currently tutoring my son in pre-calculus in high school. According to my kids, Dr. Atajan is very knowledgeable and patient. He is very good at explaining difficult concepts thoroughly and identifying where/what my kids are misunderstanding and confused about. He is wonderful at guiding them through problems they have trouble solving and showing them step-by-step problem solving strategies. Dr. Atajan has also always been very flexible with scheduling sessions: there are times my son requests last minute sessions before big tests, and he always makes it happen. I really appreciate that. Again, I would give Dr. Atajan and MyU Academy my highest recommendation.

Dr. Atajiang tutored both of my sons in calculus in high school, and I would honestly give him my highest recommendation. My sons told me that Dr. Atajiang is fantastic at explaining difficult concepts and exhibits a lot of patience. My younger son actually continued to take lessons from Dr. Atajiang during his freshman year of college via skype which helped him earn great grades in his math courses. My son thought that the lessons via skype (online) were just as helpful as the in-person lessons that he took during high school. In fact, he preferred online classes due to ease. Finally, I appreciate that Dr. Atajiang has always been very flexible with scheduling sessions. Again, I would give Dr. Atajiang my highest recommendation.

Dr. Atajan has tutored two of my kids in high school math over the last four years. While we initially signed up for tutoring just to get through a difficult unit, both wanted to continue because they felt they were learning so much from him. He has helped them with pre-calculus through calculus BC, including some SAT prep. My kids were doing Skype tutoring sessions with Dr. Atajan long before everyone was forced to move online in 2020 - he is very adept at the technology and communicates well in an online tutoring format. We highly recommend MyU Academy!

Dr. Atajian is an excellent teacher, he made my son interested in math which none of the other tutors we had previously was able to do. Highly recommend.

Amazing experience, especially given the current pandemic. MyU Tutoring is the reason I was able to pass my Calc 2 exams. The super personalized sessions and being able to do it online with a virtual whiteboard (think of Khan Academy but you can interact with it!) helped me out a ton in this stressful time. The home works and in-class lessons made sure that my weakest areas were improved without over-complicating the subject matter. Example driven, simple, and straight to the point. I highly recommend it here.

Dr. Atajiang provided excellent assistance to my son who was struggling in Algebra 2. Within a week, my son's test scores and most importantly, the understanding of the techniques have drastically improved for the better. Our son's confidence in math is also a biproduct of his outstanding work. We are more than satisfied with Dr. Atajiang's work and are forever great full for his work.

Kim R.

HIGHLY recommended! Explains concepts expertly. Excellent with our son.

I am profoundly grateful for the work Mr. Talifu Atajiang is doing with my kids. My son, currently a junior in high school, started tutoring with Mr. Atajiang last year for his Pre-Calculus class, he helped my son not only understanding better the concepts taught in school but also boosted his confidence, my son improved from a C in the first quarter to A for the year in his Math class. This year my son is taking AP Calculus and with the help of Mr. Atajiang I am certain he will succeed. Mr. Atajiang’s patience and excellent teaching abilities have also helped my 6th grader daughter in advancing her Math skills preparing her for Honors Math in 7th grade.

Excellent tutor. Very good at explaining with clear logic and diagrams.

Ken J.

My son, who is in 11th grade, is in his second semester working with Talifu. Talifu is both a talented teacher and tutor. What I mean by this is that Talifu can impart concepts to my son that he did not understand when his teacher taught the concept and then comes up with practice exercises to make sure that my son has mastered the concept. Talifu is a patient and positive tutor, who gives constructive feedback well. My son is a A student in virtually all his classes but he lost confidence in math. Talifu helped give my son back that confidence (he has an A in Precalc this quarter).

Life Changing
By: Bryan from Laurel, MD  
My son has struggled in mathematics for the past three years. He has had great difficulty in seeing the big picture and applying concepts. He was always grumpy and basically hated mathematics until we selected Talifu to tutor him. My son is a changed person. His grades in math have begun to improve dramatically. He converses about mathematics and has begun to smile when we discuss math. I could never truly express in words what Talifu has meant to my son. He truly has changed my son’s life. We are so incredibly grateful! Talifu takes the time to explain material, provide examples, and encourage the practice of problems. He not only explains the basic concepts but explains the importance of learning a concept or formula. He is incredibly patient and always has a kind word to say to my son. My son actually looks forward to the tutoring sessions. Talifu is the best.

Outstanding Tutor
By: Carla from Arlington, VA 
Our son who is in the eighth grade taking Algebra I intensified, has been tutored by Talifu A. since September 2010. Talifu has been prompt every single Sunday morning at 11:45 without fail. He is reliable, trustworthy and extremely dependable. We have been honored to have such an amazing knowledgeable tutor for our son. Our son has excelled in his coursework throughout the year. He has earned high A’s for the past three quarters. Talifu, reviews the past weeks work or exam, and then prepares our son for the upcoming lessons. He has a vast knowledge of mathematics. He is superior in his ability to convey methods and techniques to enable problem solving. He one of the most polite people I have ever encountered in my life. I highly recommend Talifu without any reservation. Thank you.

Excellent, Patient and Skilled
By: Himali from Fairfax, VA  
Mr Talip is an excellent tutor, patient and skilled in explaining concepts simply. My son started learning with him in middle school and enjoyed the sessions. This made learning easy and also boosted his confidence in math. Mr Talip is flexible about teaching in person or online and that was a huge benefit to me. My son has benefited a great deal over the past two years and I plan to continue his lessons in high school.

Great tutor!
By: Michele K. Oakton, VA   
Talifu is an excellent tutor for my son who is taking Multi-variable Calculus. Talifu does a great job explaining information. We highly recommend him.

Great Tutor
By: Peggy from Vienna, VA  
Hi Talifu, just wanted to let you know I passed my Praxis II math exam. I increased my score by 15 points. Thanks for all the help and pointers!

Very knowledgeable

Ijust found out this morning that I passed the Praxis test! Thanks so much for all your help.

Talifu is a wonderful tutor!
By: Jenny Goldsmith from Washington, DC  
He knows calculus inside out, he can explain how to solve problems and he involves the student in learning. He is also very encouraging. I am so pleased to come across this excellent teacher.

Outstanding and very positive attitude
By: Eman S. Dunn Loring, VA 
Outstanding math tutor with a very positive attitude. 
Mr. Talifu tutored my son in Honors Algebra 2 for almost a year. Not only is he very knowledgeable in math, he has a special talent for making tough topics easy to understand. My son improved rapidly and consistently over the 7 months he tutored him, raising his grade from a B- to an A, and more importantly, gaining self confidence in how to tackle algebra problems and do well on tests. Talifu is very positive and encouraging of the student’s efforts, but at the same time he sets the bar high and prods them to reach for it. I feel fortunate to have found him in my son’s first year of high school and I intend to call on him for future math courses as needed. I tell all of my son’s friends about him as I truly believe he is quite an asset to his students. Highly, highly recommended.

Excellent Math Tutor
By: Renee from Vienna, VA   
Dr. Talifu is an excellent and patient tutor. He displayed a deep interest in our daughter’s success. He is also a very experienced tutor, even my daughter tends to be quiet, he knows how to engage her in discussions, taking the time to learn her strengths and weaknesses, and tutored her on ways to overcome her flaws. He never misses the chance to encourage and challenge her to put forth her best effort in her endeavors. Being very knowledgeable, he can take any question that my daughter has to present the way that my daughter can quickly and fully understand. He has everything you look for as an excellent tutor. My daughter has 5 classes with him so far and will continue to have him to be her math tutor. Yes, he is highly recommended.

By far the best qualified and thorough tutor!
By: Debbie from Reston, VA  
Talifu A. Is the best high school higher mathematics tutor our daughter has ever had. His dedication and qualified approach to the subject is unsurpassed. My daughter has maintained an A in her class and is confident in her understanding of the fast paced curriculum. Talifu puts my daughter at ease but at the same time challenges her constantly. We as a family feel his high success rate with his students is well earned.

Knowledgeable and understanding teacher!
By: Josh C. from Vienna, VA  
Dr. Talip Atajan has been a wonderful teacher to me for the past year. From the first class, he made a wonderful impression on me as a knowledgeable and understanding person willing to take the time to explain difficult topics to me step by step. From the time I started tutoring, I have seen my grades improve and my understanding of the calculus increase. I would recommend Dr. Talip to anyone without reservation.

Excellent and has lots of patience.
By: Rama from Ashburn, VA      

Mr Talifu is an excellent tutor and has lots of patience. My son had classes with Mr Talifu for Algebra 2/trig, Precalc and got good grades. Mr Talifu taught him math concepts in a way where my son is solving math problems by himself now. Mr Talifu is an excellent tutor and has lots of patience. I am very thankful to Mr Talifu.

Effective, leading to improved results!
By: Chao-hui from Mc Lean, VA 
Effective math tutoring, leading to improved results!   
Talifu is a very good tutor. He has a very clear understanding of the concepts of math, and his ability to convey and teach ideas of math are very good. His ability to express the concepts of math makes him an effective tutor and a helpful teacher. Our son’s grades in math at school (as well as his math scores on standardized tests) have improved substantially while being tutored by Talifu over the better part of this past year.

My son improved from a C in the first quarter to A

Knowledgeable, straight to the point, and clear with his explanations

By: Marcie and Bill Coomer Manassas VA
MyU Academy helped our Son succeed in Trig and Calculus A/B during his high school sophomore and junior years. Dr. Atajiang's online tutoring session via Skype has proven to be easier and just as effective as in-person tutoring.
During the Skype tutoring sessions, our son and Dr. Atajiang can easily exchange problems, concepts, and solutions. Skype, and it's supporting tools, efficiently facilitates sharing and discussions. 
Dr. Atajiang is knowledgeable, straight to the point, and clear with his explanations. His method of teaching and one-on-one engagement has helped our son comprehend and retain the more difficult math concepts of the curriculum.
Our Son's academic success over the past two years, coupled with the ease and flexibility of the virtual tutoring sessions, is proof of the efficacy of the MyU Tutoring program. My son looks forward to working with Dr. Atajiang this year for support during Calculus B/C.
