Hi. My name is Amyro.

I was invited to join the National Honor Society (NHS) during tenth grade. In NHS, I had tutored other students at my high school, three hours each week for two whole school years. I recently graduated from Community College of Philadelphia back in May 2014, and I have transferred to Temple University with a major in finance. In addition, I am currently a math tutor at a college in Center City Philadelphia; the subjects I tutor are developmental mathematics, basic mathematics, and Algebra 1 & 2.

My tutoring method is simple: UNDERSTAND, not know. If you know a subject, you are only memorizing the necessary information needed to pass a test, but if you UNDERSTAND a subject, you are grasping the full concept of the subject and you are retaining it in your long-term memory.

Fun fact: Did you know that most of your memory are short-term memory? Your brain only retains the information it deems necessary, and it throws the rest out. Your short-term memory only lasts about six seconds. Crazy right?

Well, if you let me tutor you, I will work with you to retain all - if not most - of the information you are learning. My tutoring style is making a dull subject more fun by comparing it to other fun things or subjects and repeating it multiple times in different ways so you can get it.

I can tutor you in the following subjects: Basic Math, Algebra 1 & 2, Geometry, ESL/ESOL, Microsoft (Word, Excel, and PowerPoint), Pre-Algebra, SAT Math, and Spelling.

Did I mention that I am bilingual? English is my native language, but I can speak Vietnamese too; I can only read and write a little Vietnamese.

I hope you're interested in me and my tutoring skills! Please feel free to contact me.

Best,
Amyro
