I love teaching. I can be helpful to any willing student in physics, algebra, pre-calculus, trigonometry, ACT and SAT preparation at all levels, middle school, high school and college.

Sel’s subjects

ACT Math

I practiced ACT Math with my three sons and with some of their friends. I enjoyed the challenge. I collected over the years ACT tests and sample questions from ACT web site. I used to solve them just for fun with my sons. I am sure that I have the experience and willingness to help my students in how to think and reason to succeed in ACT Math tests.

Algebra 1

I can teach any subject in Algebra at middle school, high school and college levels. I can be helpful in homework assignments and solving problems. But I emphasize understanding the subjects. For that purpose, I lead my students to thinking and reasoning while I am teaching.

I can not promise that I would solve every problems a student might have, but I promise that she/he will learn how to approach a problem, how to think logically and methodically to solve it.

My students' success is my responsibility. My responsibility will not be suspended at the end of a tutoring session. I will be available for further followup by any means of communications.

Algebra 2

I have been teaching physics and math at college level for more than 24 years. I can teach at middle school and high school levels also. My three sons and friends' children have been my students over the years. I can help my students with homework assignments. But I emphasize understanding the subjects. I lead my students to think and reason logically while I teach so that they can solve problems by themselves during a test, for instance.

I can not promise that I would solve every problems a student might have, but I promise that she/he will learn how to approach a problem and how to think methodically to solve it.

My student's success is my success. My teaching will not be limited to tutoring sessions. I will be available for my students at any time by any means of communications.

Physics

I have a PhD in physics, and I have been teaching it at the college level for 24 years. I did teach at middle and high school levels to my sons and children of friends.

I can be helpful in homework problems and explaining subjects. But I emphasize that my students learn and practice how to think and solve problems by logical and methodical reasoning.

I cannot promise that I will solve every single problem a student might have, but I promise that she/he will learn and acquire confidence by learning the subjects.

Prealgebra

I can teach any subject in algebra and at any level, middle school, high school or college. I can be helpful in homework assignments and solving problems. But I emphasize understanding the subjects. For that purpose, I lead my students to think and to reason while I teach.

I can not promise that I would solve every problems a student might have, but I promise that she/he will learn how to approach a problem, how to think logically and methodically to solve it.

I care about my students' success. My teaching duty will not end at the end of a tutoring session. I will be available for followup help by any means of communication.

Precalculus

I teach math and physics at a college in a Western suburb. I have my PhD in physics but since math is the language of science, I learned and practiced (and taught)it throughout of my career.

While I teach, I emphasize understanding and grasping the subjects along with solving problems. I challenge my students to think and reason. This way they become problem solver themselves.

I am also willing to be available for further help if necessary outside the tutoring periods.

SAT Math

I enjoyed the challenge of SAT when I practiced it with my three sons and with some of their friends. I have a collection of SAT tests. I used to solve the "question of the day" on the SAT web site just for fun. I am sure that I will be helpful to my students in how to "think outside the box" to succeed in SAT.

Trigonometry

For more than 24 years, I have been teaching physics and math at college level. Four of those years have been specifically for trigonometry. I can teach at middle school and high school levels also, as I have done so for my three sons and friends' children. I emphasize understanding the subjects while helping with homework assignments or any problems. For that purpose, I lead my students to thinking and reasoning while I am teaching.

I cannot promise that I will solve every problem a student might have, but I promise that she/he will learn how to approach a problem and how to think logically and methodically to solve it.

I do my best for my students to succeed. I will be available for my students any time by any means of communication for follow-ups.
