I am an experienced Math tutor (5 recent years, 100+ students), college instructor and software engineer. I have helped students succeed from the most difficult to the most elementary Math courses. I have an unmatched Math (with technical) background and know many issues of learning Math in general and any particular class. I was admitted to UCB Math PhD program (but chose Purdue PhD for some reason). Some of my students eventually go to top colleges (UCB (>2), Davis, UOP). Others did learn the basic Math they needed in their jobs and lives. My rates are very reasonable given what I could do to help. Please read on for more detail.

I have tutored and helped college students since the 80s and substantially in the last 5 years, on all HS Math classes (many Honors). I have a Math PhD (and MS in EE, CS) from Purdue and taught various courses before and after graduation, and regularly at San Jose State U (Calculus III for Fall 2012) and junior colleges.

Calculus: I have many Calculus students (AP and non-AP) and taught Calculus II, III at SJSU. I know many issues of learning Calculus and have effective solutions. I also wrote 5 sections for a free Calculus textbook. On top of 4 standard Calculus courses, I have taken several graduate level Analysis courses (real and complex variables, topology, measure theory).

Honors class and Math competition: I have helped many Honors class students with extra practices and drills I set myself. One of my student also got first in MathCounts in his city.

Basic: I have taught students (many of them adults) the basics of Math (4 operations, fraction, decimal) systematically so they gained valuable skills in their jobs and lives.

I can help in these areas: pre-Algebra, (Honors) Algebra I & II, Geometry (with proofs), pre-Calculus, (AP, College, 3-D) Calculus, Linear Algebra, Probability, (lower class) Physics*, and Java*.

*I have very intensive training in mechanics including kinematics, Newton's Laws (with friction) and statics. I also have taken graduate courses in electromagnetism and optics. I worked on applications research and system software (e.g. Open Source) to support applications including the Java (and J2ME) and Bluetooth communication stacks.

Algebra 1

I have recent Hon. Algebra I students in the Pleasanton school district. I could explain the main points precisely and concisely (Algebra is my PhD area). I also provide extra practice and drill problems. My students show clear improvement in understanding and technical Algebraic skills.

Algebra 2

I have 5+ recent Hon. Algebra II students in Pleasanton and Danville school district. I could explain the main points precisely and concisely (Algebra is my PhD area). All have improved in their understanding and in various degree their grades. I provide extra practice and drill problems.


I have substantial experience tutoring Calculus (including AP, AB/BC) and Multivariate Calculus. I have taught Calculus II
at San Jose St. U and wrote a few sections for a Calculus textbook. I myself have several advanced graduate analysis course on top of 4 Calculus courses, including Real and Complex variables, Measure Theory, Differential Geometry.

Discrete Math

I have taught Discrete Math (Math 42) during Fall 2008 at San Jose State U. Also, I have a Ph.D. in Math and my research area/Master Thesis is closely related to Discrete Math.


I have several recent Geometry students (HS or middle school) using the Holt, Glencoe or Jurgensen textbook. I can help with the basic problems thru drills whether it is proof-intensive or
Geometry with Coordinate Geometry. I will also emphasize the technique of concentrating on special parts of diagrams (one part at a time).


I have many recent and present pre-Calculus students and review with them for tests and homework. I have a PhD in Math (from US) and have taught Calculus and other Math classes at San Jose St. U and other colleges.
