Hi there, students and parents! If you are looking for a passionate, ivy-league educated, and patient math tutor, then you have come to the right place. I have been intrigued by mathematics for as long as I can remember, from the simple equation of x + 1 = 2 to modular arithmetic in real analysis. Math was always my favorite subject in school (Yes! To me, it is even better than gym), and I already decided to major in mathematics ever since my freshmen year in high school. I first started tutoring my peers in middle school and never stopped since, because I love to see the “light bulb effect,” when a tutee finally understands a concept.
Now that you know about my crazy passion for math, let's talk about my past experience and my qualification. Aside from tutoring my peers whenever possible, I also worked as a math tutor/counselor for various summer programs during every summer break. In addition to tutoring the students in math during specific times, I also lived in the same dorm as the students being their residential adviser and mentor. I started my graduate study of mathematics education in Teachers College right after I graduated from Hamilton College. I also taught in a New York City public middle school for a year.
For my paper works, I have a bachelor's degree in mathematics from Hamilton College and master of arts in mathematics education from Teachers College, Columbia University. I also have mathematics 7-12 initial certificate (license to teach 7-12 grades in New York).
I tutored Algebra 1 for 2 years and student taught 1 semester of it. I also have mathematics 7-12 initial certificate (license to teach 7-12 grades in New York) and taught 1 year in NYC middle school.
As a Mathematics Major, I worked as a math tutor during my college years and I have tutored numerous students in Discrete Math in an entrance level college course. I was advised by my adviser not to take this course because the topics in this class were too easy and would be covered in my other more advanced math courses anyway. Thus, I would be able to tutor in this subject up to an entrance level college course.
