I earned my Bachelor of Science degree in math from the University of California Riverside to enrich my content knowledge in math. I received California Teaching Credential to enhance my teaching skills. I worked in a public school for few years and later I decided to become a full-time private tutor helping people in Arcadia, San Marino, and Pasadena. I have tutored many students in math over 12 years in middle/high school math and science including AP Calculus/Physics/Chemistry and SAT/ISEE preparation.
I help students clarify each concept by showing them how to do questions and then having them show me how to do questions. My class is discussion-based and I always want to hear students' ideas about questions. I provide extra practices focusing on students' weaknesses after each lesson.
For AP exams, SAT, and ISEE preparation, I design preparation plans based on students' diagnostic tests. I guide students through their questions in current progress, but I also provide students with progressive practices addressing their misconceptions.
Communication with parents is very important. I periodically show parents how their children are doing, and I also provide some feedbacks on how they can motivate and encourage their children.
