About Huey-Ming

I hold a single subject teaching credential in math. I have tutored students from elementary to high school math subjects. I aim to know my students, set practical goals, engage the students during instruction, have students practice in problem solving, and gauge student learning with assessments. Most students can achieve the goal they set if they truly put their minds to it. I will try to help you arrive at those goals if you will work with me regularly, spend time doing practice work and be focused on the goals you set for yourself.

I worked as a database application support specialist for years and before that a computer application programmer. My enthusiasm for math came from my teachers in secondary schools and college despite the fact that I studied computer science as my major in college. I achieved my goals for college and the goal of becoming a certificated teacher in math. What are your academic goals? I will try to help you achieve those goals by improving your leaning in math.

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

I have taught and tutored high school students as well as middle students in algebra 1. For students to learn to solve real life problems using linear equations and graphs is interesting and challenging. Comprehension of the concepts are essential to success in subsequent subjects, namely, geometry and algebra 2.

Algebra 2

I assisted and guest taught Algebra 2 for the entire year at a south bay high school. Besides topics such as Matrices and Logarithm, graphing of polynomials and functions, solving for real and complex zeroes call for a tremendous amount of analysis. I can help the student master these skills with careful examination of the clues and signs.

Chinese

Mandarin is my first language. I have been bilingual since college and am fluent in both English and Mandarin in speaking, reading and writing. I have taught adult ESL classes in a couple of Chinese churches and children's Bible classes to children of all ages with some of them speaking only Mandarin. Setting some practical language learning goals and achieving them while having fun can be exciting for both children and adults.

Elementary Math

I have tutored many students at the elementary level, both boys and girls. Students enjoy seeing pictures and drawing pictures while solving word problems and using manipulatives, charts, wrap-ups to build basic math skills.

Geometry

I have taught Geometry to students with different learning styles and needs. I would like to identify the student's learning style and use different learning strategies to generate a dialogue. Re-working the school lesson and finding the point of confusion allow the student to understand the concepts correctly and solve problems with simple guidance.

Prealgebra

Learning Prealgebra is like the learning of the roles, functions, and rules of the game pieces of the game of Algebra. I would teach Prealgebra to make it fun and rewarding. The skills learned well in Prealgebra makes playing the Algebra game easier and a lot more interesting.

Very thorough and patient — My kids liked Huey-Ming because she was very calm and thorough and patient. We're going to continue with her because she knows the material and has taught Algebra and seems to explain things in a manner they can understand. ...
