About Asia

Hello,

My name is Asia and I have a M.S in Applied Economics from Johns Hopkins University. I have always had a passion for teaching and tutoring, from helping my little brother pass 2nd grade math to teaching piano to students of varying ages. I have taught and tutored various subjects [6 years teaching Piano, 3 years of tutoring Japanese, 4 years of Tutoring math (Pre-algebra, Algebra, SAT Math Prep), 2 years of tutoring high school AP Economics, 2 years of being a running coach, 6 years of elementary tutoring (math, science, reading, study skills)]. I offer tutoring in my favorite subjects so that students and parents are provided with a positive learning experience. One example being I took six years of math in my four years of high school because I enjoyed the subject that much.

I enjoy working with all ages to accomplish academic goals as well as personal development goals. I work with my students to identify their learning style and customize a tutoring program for each individual aimed to making the subject matter interesting and approachable. Learning is made to be fun and a fundamental part of each students perspective.

Let's work together to build a strong academic foundation for your success.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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

With my M.S in economics, I have a thorough background in mathematics. In high school I took extra math courses to accumulate six years of math during those four years. The courses I took were: pre-algebra, algebra, geometry, algebra II, pre-calculus and trigonometry, and advanced placement statistics. In college I took statistics II, calculus A, and calculus B. I have over six years of experience tutoring math from elementary math through to the high school level.

Algebra 2

With my M.S in economics, I have a thorough background in mathematics. I accumulated six years math in high school through by taking additional courses during the summer sessions for fun. The courses I took were: pre-algebra, algebra, geometry, algebra II, pre-calculus and trigonometry, and advanced placement statistics. In college I took statistics II, calculus A, and calculus B. I have over six years of experience tutoring math from elementary math through to the high school level. I work with students to make sure that they not only know how to solve problems, but also understand the process to ensure strong test scores.

Economics

I have a Masters of Science degree in Applied Economics from Johns Hopkins University. I tutored introductory and intermediate macro & microeconomics to both college and high school students for two years.

Elementary Math

I have over 6 years of experience tutoring math from Elementary math through to the high school level. I can work with students to create a solid foundation in elementary math so that high levels of math are more approachable.

Geometry

I have over six years of experience tutoring math from elementary math through to the high school level. Geometry can be especially challenging when a student has a hard time with visualizing the work they are doing. I work with students to ensure they have a solid foundation in geometry basics so that the more advanced problems will be approachable.

Japanese

I studied Japanese (reading, writing, and speaking) for 3.5 years during my college career. I tutored beginner-level students in the program at my school for two years. I also was a teacher assistant at a high school Japanese class for one year. I still actively practice reading, writing, and speaking Japanese with my former classmates, and tutor online.

Piano

I started learning piano at the age of 10 years old, and started teaching at the age of 11 when my teacher decided I was ready to teach others. I taught over 15 students, with ages ranging from 5 to 18. I teach students how to read music, and transfer that ability to the piano, building on fundamentals like sight reading and finger & hand coordination. From beginners piano up through Classical piece by the great composers, I work with students to make piano fun and engaging. Overall I have six years of experience teaching piano.

Prealgebra

Building a strong foundation in Prealgebra will enable students to continue to find success in their math classes afterwards as well. I work with each student's individual learning styles to make sure that they understand the concepts and are confident in their ability to test through the subject.

With my MS in Economics, I have a thorough background in mathematics. In high school I took extra math courses to accumulate 6 years of math during those 4 years. The courses I took were: Pre-Algebra, Algebra, Geometry, Algebra II, Pre-Calculus and Trigonometry, and Advanced Placement Statistics. In college I took Statistics II, Calculus A, and Calculus B.

I have tutored math from Elementary math through to the high school level.

Study Skills

I have over eight years of experience working with students to develop well honed study skills. I first spent time with each student to identify how they learn best and what types of motivation appeal to them. I then spend time developing and presenting a plan to the parents and student. The student and I then work as a team, involving the parents in the process, to practice the study skills that work the individuals learning style. The process is about making learning and studying fun and rewarding so that it is not a chore.

Track & Field

I ran on my high school track team for all four years. I even made varsity my freshman year. I still actively run five miles a day at least four times a week. I have knowledge and experience running the following races: 100m, 200m, 400m, 800m, 4x100m relay , & 4x400m relay. I have two years of experience coaching short to mid-distance runners, and preparing individuals for 5K, 10K and half marathon runs.
