About Steve

I am a recent graduate from the University of California - Los Angeles (UCLA) with a bachelor's degree in Applied Mathematics. I have been working toward becoming an actuary since my sophomore year in college. I have passed two SOA exams (Exam P – score 8 out of 10, and Exam FM – 8/10) by studying independently.

I have worked as a math tutor since high school. I have a proven record of being highly detail-oriented and patient; these qualities were recognized by many of my students. The tutoring experience has made me a better communicator. Specifically, I learned to tailor my message to my audience in the most effective way.

I was able to explain complicated and abstract mathematical concepts to my students in a context that they could understand. In addition to my tutoring experience, I have participated in a number of club functions and leadership programs during my time in college. I served as the External Vice President for the student residential hall and was selected as the director of UCLA’s Taiwanese Cultural Night. These extracurricular activities not only strengthened my interpersonal and leadership skills, but they taught me how to be successful in a team environment.

My specialization for my tutoring skill generally surrounds the mathematics subjects, especially algebra, calculus and SAT mathematics I and II. Most of my students have a significant improvement on their grade and score. To sums up my teaching philosophy, I do not only concern about the academic performance of my students (although it is still extremely important), but my ultimate goal is to help them to develop their own studying habit as well as helping them to truly understand the subject they are learning.

Very Knowledgeable

This is the first lesson with Steve and he seems like a very good fit for my child. The first impression I got was very positive and my child was really satisfied as well. He seems very knowledgeable and very interactive and gave us ideas as for the best course of action to achieve our goals.
