I graduated from University of California Riverside with the degree of Bachelor of Science in math. I am a credentialed math teacher. I did my teaching internship at Eagle Rock High School and taught Algebra Two, Geometry and Honor Pre-Calculus.

I am a math teacher at Premier Academy and a full-time private tutor as well. I have tutored many students in math over six years in Calculus, Pre-Calculus, Geometry, and Algebra Two. The passion motivates me to help students in multiple approaches according to their individual talent. Different needs of students inspire me to develop various teaching strategies. A good teacher should possess concrete content knowledge, abilities to evaluate individual performance, and good communication skills in order to help students reach their maximal learning potential.

Through teaching various students in different subjects I realize that students need more enhancement in conceptual clarification to build up a solid foundation. I don't only guide students through their questions in current subjects but I also provide students with additional practice addressing blind spots in their conceptual understandings.

Now I work at a test-prep institution as a math teacher in SAT I math, Algebra Two, and Geometry. I design curriculum, prepare daily lesson plans, and evaluate students' performance in various ways.

Algebra 1

Most of students have conceptual proficiency but do not have procedural one. I measure students' calculation ability and how much conceptual reasoning they can make. I teach students’ tips of calculation to faster their process. I provide personalized practice as enhancement for procedural proficiency of students according to individual needs. I taught high school students in Algebra One for five years as a private tutor. I have a a Bachelor of Science Degree in Mathematics, and I also have Single Subject Teaching Credential in math.

Algebra 2

I taught high school students in Algebra Two for five years as a private tutor. I have a a Bachelor of Science Degree in Mathematics, and I also have Single Subject Teaching Credential in math. Most of students have conceptual proficiency but do not have procedural one. I measure students' calculation ability and how much conceptual reasoning they can make. I teach students’ tips of calculation to faster their process. I provide personalized practice as enhancement for procedural proficiency of students according to individual needs.

Calculus

I have a Bachelor of Science Degree in Mathematics in math, and I also have Single Subject Teaching Credential in math. I taught high school and college students in Calculus for five years as a private tutor. Many students have misconceptions of how to apply theorems and difficult interpretation of questions in Calculus. I focus on students' blind spots and explain how the concepts are applied to questions with my own tips. I provide students with supplementary material.

Chinese

I am a native Chinese speaker and fluent in writing and speaking. I have experience in tutoring students who learned Chinese as a second language.

Geometry

Geometry requires students have the skill of conceptual reasoning and organization of composing proofs. I guide students to build up the skills of conceptual reasoning and analytic abilities such as interpretation of theorems and application to questions. I provide students with supplementary material. I taught high school students in Geometry for five years as a private tutor. I have a a Bachelor of Science Degree in Mathematics, and I also have Single Subject Teaching Credential in math.

Physics

The key to achieve a good grade in Physics is knowing how to apply theorems to word problems. I help students convert words in questions into calculation. I teach students how to collect clues and develop logical deduction.

Precalculus

I taught high school students in Pre-Calculus for five years as a private tutor. I have a bachelor degree in math, and I also have Single Subject Teaching Credential in math. In the part of trigonometry, I teach students to implement the systematic ways such as graphing by table and using key points that students do not learn from school teachers. I provide personalized practice as enhancement for procedural proficiency of students.

SAT Math

SAT math covers concepts which students have learned in Algebra One, Geometry, and Algebra Two before. The first step for students is to review the concepts categorized by different topics such as arithmetic/geometric concepts, word problem, function, exponent, and probability.

I guide students through these topics and help students develop particular strategies and skills for taking SAT math. Then students will have to work on categorized and mixed questions for procedural enhancement.

Trigonometry

Students often need to use graph to understand the concepts in Trigonometry. I don't encourage students to merely learn characteristics of Trig functions by rote. I help students relate Trig functions to the corresponding graphs and explain how each Trig functions make changes in graphs.
