Like most students, I have gone through the challenges of mathematics from basic education that got harder and harder (or harsher and harsher, if you may) as I got to graduate school. Even with my current work that uses some math, sometimes I still struggle with difficult math problems that confront me. But with diligence, I eventually surpass them. I consider myself as an average student and an eternal learner of mathematics. Hence, I am confident that I can relate with your difficulties (or your child's difficulties) in your (or his/her) journey with math.

When I was teaching secondary and basic college mathematics, I encountered a different level of challenge. Besides handling math difficulties, I had to contend with the greater concern of demotivated students - students with the mindset that math is difficult, not so useful, and just needs to be complied with. I think this student perception is true in most cases. I later took on various non-teaching jobs in the last decade and a half and those work experiences tell me that a good mathematics foundation and mindset is always handy to succeed in any profession. It is this attitude that I hope to foster in you (or your child), because once you achieve this, seeking to learn becomes second-nature and you may need a tutor no more.

I look forward to imparting my best to you.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Algebra 1

I have a Bachelor's Degree in Mathematics. I taught high school algebra for over two years. I also taught basic college Algebra for two semesters. Since I faced enormous challenges myself in going through college mathematics, my tutoring method caters to struggling students.

Algebra 2

I am qualified to tutor in this subject because I have a BS Mathematics degree where I took up Algebra from basic to advanced levels. I also taught 8th-10th grade High School Algebra and Basic College Algebra. As to my teaching preparation, I have over 12 units in Education.
