About Khoa

I tutor mainly on algebras, pre-calculus, calculus AB and BC.

It is an easy job to give the correct answers directly to students. I prefer something better than that. I guide them to find the correct answers by themselves. So when they are in the test or exam, they can solve any problems. I explain to them the concepts and knowledge requirements behind each of the exercises. What they are all about. How we should tackle the problems. How we are going to break down the big problem into some pieces and apply which techniques to solve them. Calculus is all about making plans and ready to use appropriate techniques and correct formulas. For example, to solve integration problems, we should know which types of the problems are. Is it trigonometry or algebra or rational functions? If it is a trigonometric function, what do we know about it? Do we know sin^2(x) + cos^2(x) = 1? It is too basic to apply directly to the problem. Then we need to know how to change or convert the basic formulas to something like cos2x = 2cos^2(x) - 1 or 2cos^2(x) = cos(2x) + 1. Then we could integrate it directly or integrate by parts.

I got the AMATYC award (American Mathematical Association of Two-Year Colleges). Tutoring calculus is one of my hobbies so I tutor students with passion.

Hope to see you soon!
Great Day!

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.

Great tutor — Khoa is very knowledgeable, patient, and hard working. He taught AP Calculus for my daughter. Actually I found him at the end of the school year, just a few of days before the exams; I wish I could have worked with him from the beginning of the school year so that she would have had enough time to practice the math lessons while also managing the other subjects. Though it was a last minute idea, m ...
