## Knowledgeable and patient

Cau is very patient to teach the concepts of computer science. He makes it fun for the high school students. Learning from Cau students actually look forward for the class. I highly recommend Cau for teaching Computer Science IB for high school students.

## The best math teacher!

He helped my understand all the concepts i didn't understand in class, he made linear algebra so much easier to understand that i was able to ace my exam, which will also help me make it through my finals, I am a bit confident that my grade will be pushed from the B rang to A+. Such a great teacher, and very patient that he would keep repeating until you understand the concept.

## Cau is AWESOME

Cau worked with my daughter on multiple programming techniques. He was very patient and knowledgable and provided insight and tips on stradigies to make her programs more efficient. He was very dedicated to his work, and was able to work with my daughter even when he was in France visiting. I was very happy that I found such a great tutor and I keep telling my daughter to take more programming classes. Big thank you to Cau for all his help!
