I am a retired high school math teacher who started teaching math and physics when I was 19 years old. I love teaching and I consider moving a student from C level to A level to be a success for me first. I succeed to create math short cut almost for every math concept. The problem in math is to find a clean spot to let the student look through it so they can see the concept clearly and easily. Teaching is an art and not just anyone can be successful math teacher.

When I was studying for my graduate degree, I was the top TA among 43 math TAs at Michigan. I have a very high success rate in class and in 1-1 tutoring. I usually give the student 2 hours (1 hour is free) to see my teaching style and decide. So far, I never started with student without signing a long term contract.

Thanks God: I finish my BA in Math through College Scholarship. And I finished my MA and PhD in Math/Michigan through US Fullbright Scholarship. I finished a 2 year associate degree in math education. I am also a certified math teacher in VA and formal Fairfax Public School Math teacher. I got prefect score in the GRE (Math part).

I just joined WyzAnt and my price is fair, compared with the rate I see around this area. Please feel free to contact me for math or statistics help at the HS or college level. Thanks.
