About Leo

Being a recent high school IB graduate who has possessed many leadership and teaching roles in my time, I have substantial know-how in working with students with greatly varying ages and abilities. My tutoring experience includes 50+ hours of mathematics tutoring to the two sons (8 and 16 yrs old respectively) of a family friend as recently as the month of July this year. I am also currently tutoring a variety of math topics to 4 students ranging from simple geometry to Algebra II. Aside from math, I have also taught 8 sessions of after school English to a class of about 10 students back in my hometown of Hong Kong.

I believe strongly in allowing students to solve problems on their own, offering help only when necessary to enhance their critical thinking skills. I see all students as individuals with extremely high potential who can shape the world and contribute to the community at large if they are guided and nurtured well. This firm belief in a child’s potential is extremely important from my point of view as it has been proven in psychological studies that such belief will on average become a self-fulfilling prophecy.

Tutoring is a fond interest of mine due to the fact that I love seeing people improve and perhaps even grow to be fond of a subject that they once disliked.

I have an excellent grasp of nearly all subject matter up to high school calculus. I possessed a string of 100% test scores for individual areas of math all throughout middle school and received full marks in the math section of the SAT. I have Multiple Gold certificates in the junior and intermediate Australian Mathematical Challenge. My strengths lie in visualizing shapes so areas of mathematics such geometry is a breeze for me.

Good attributes that define me include being personable and fun-loving. Some hobbies of mine include running, camping and freediving- just putting that out there so you know I am not a math hermit.

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.

SAT Math

I received full marks for the math section of the old SAT.

Energetic, Knowledgeable, thorough, committed — Leo was great. He was great with helping my 13 year old daughter how to solve problems in a number of ways, all while teaching her the subject topic. He's fast, knowledgeable and great with kids. A great find. ...
