I have a degree of MA in mathematics and a degree of MS in computer science. I have earned both degrees from the University of Texas at Arlington.
For my teaching background and experience, I have been teaching at various colleges (i.e., Mt Sac and PCC) and universities (i.e., ULV and DeVry University) for many years. Currently, I am teaching at Mt Sac College. For the subject matter of math, I have taught algebra, geometry, trig, pre-calculus, and calculus. For computer science, I have taught several programming languages (i.e., C, C++, C#), operating systems (i.e., Windows and Linux), database systems (i.e., Oracle and MS Access).
Furthermore, I have taught a SAT Prep class at Bonito High School in La Verne in 2012 and will teach the same class at Garry High school in Pomona this year. Both SAT Prep Classes were sponsored by DeVry University, and I was honored being chosen by DeVry to teach these high schools.
I have been teaching a class at Mt. Sac College, and the class is about to teach a tutor how to teach math to high school and college students. Therefore, I have experience and knowledge of successfully tutoring my students and providing my students with an exceptional and excellent learning experience.
In term of my tutoring approach, I would guide my students following the several approaches listed below:
1. Explain the concept and approaches for solving a math problem.
2. Show my students how to use various tools and techniques to solve math problems.
3. Ask students show me how to following my instructions to solve math problems so that I can evaluate their level of understanding.
4. Continue to challenge my students by raising the bar so they can handle more difficult problems.
5. Give the compliments they deserve and encourage them to overcome any difficulties.
With encouragement and guidance, many of my students made a significant improvement of their math skills and understanding. Consequently, they achieved a higher score of their tests. I image that I can help many more students in the future by using my unique techniques of teaching and tutoring.
