About Cau Duong

Masters Degree in Math from UCLA
BS in Math from UCI with minor in Computer Science
GPA: 3.928 Magna Cum Laude
Honors in Mathematics

I am a National Master of Chess with USCF Rating 2230. I specialize in endgame, tactics, and knight vs bishop situations.

I am Adjunct Faculty at Glendale Community College as well as a Software Integration Engineer at a software company.

I have 8 years of tutoring/teaching experience. Some comments from my students include:
"...the best math professor I've ever had..."
"I can't think of anything to change. He's that good!"

I'm usually very goofy and clumsy. Students are never afraid of asking me questions.
I know how to teach to students who love math and how to make it simple for students who hate math.

For students who need extra practice, I can write a custom program that will auto-generate practice problems and solutions. (Limited to Geometry, Algebra 1 & 2, and Calculus). Includes conceptual understanding questions and Common Core Standards type questions.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Algebra 1

I have taught beginning and intermediate algebra at the community college level and have extensive (over 10 yrs) tutoring experience in algebra.

Algebra 2

Taught beginning and intermediate algebra at Glendale community college. I have over ten years of tutoring experience in algebra.

ASP.NET

I am a professional developer in ASP.net. I am responsible for training a new hire at work.

C++

I have been a TA at UCLA in C++. I hold a minor in computer science from UCI. My undergraduate courses were in C++. My own programming interests are written in C++.

Calculus

MA in Math from UCLA. 10+ years of tutoring experience.

Chess

I am a National Master of Chess with a 2215 USCF rating and have been playing in tournaments for 8 years now.

My expertise is middle game and endgame. I also know the classic chess games of Capablanca and Fischer well.

I have several unique training methods aimed at beginners, which I will share.

Computer Programming

I am a programmer at a company. I regularly solve programming exercises on Project Euler for fun. I have experience with c, c++, java, vb.net, objective-C, python, matlab, xml, html, css, php, javascript. I hold a minor in computer science from UCI.

Computer Science

I have been a TA at UCLA in beginning computer science classes, including data structures. I regularly use object oriented programming concepts while designing solutions at work as a professional developer.

Linear Algebra

I have a masters degree from UCLA. Among the core requirements on the master's exam is linear algebra. My area of specialization was actually abstract algebra, and I wrote a survey on Coxeter groups for my honors thesis, which is a topic at the intersection of linear algebra, representation of groups, and classical geometry. I have tutored linear algebra at UCI as a tutor for their tutoring center.

Visual Basic

This is the language I use daily at work as a developer. There is a difference between someone who is merely familiar with a language versus someone who uses it daily. Due to work restrictions, I cannot disclose what I do. It involves databases and opening bank accounts.
