About Midori

My love for mathematics comes from learning calculus with my brother over summer break, just before he left for college. After that summer, my relationship with the subject has changed dramatically. I started to actively help my calculus teacher to help other students achieve deeper understanding of the subject. Ever since, I've been aspiring to teach High school level mathematics.

I truly believe that the learning process ought to be fun and interactive, since that's how I learned my love for math. In my lessons I will not only make sure the student could achieve a level of mastery with the subject, but also make sure the they could enjoy the process.

I am pursuing a degree in Mathematics, received an 800 on the SAT math subject test and 5's on both AP Calculus AB/BC tests. I was born and raised for 13 years in Japan. I am a fluent speaker of both English and Japanese.

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or if I could be of assistance in achieving mastery in mathematics or Japanese.

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.

Elementary Math

I've taught math at all levels up to Calculus for many students in the past 4 years. In addition, I am good at getting to know children and finding the best way for each of them to learn math effectively. Making the lessons engaging and enjoyable is my top priority so that learning math will not become a chore.

I grew up in Japan until I came to the United States in 2009. I was raised by a Japanese father and an American mother, making me fluent in both English and Japanese. I am familiar with contemporary and formal Japanese as well as classic and casual Japanese.
