About Tien

I am a visiting assistant professor at CU Boulder, with ten years teaching/tutoring experience. I can tutor both high school and college level math classes. I am available afternoons, evenings, and most weekends.

I have good communication skills as well as teaching skills by building up through my graduate program as a Research Assistant as well as Teaching Assistant - I got Teaching Excellent Award. I am willing to help high schools students as well as undergraduate students in some subjects, that I am experienced, including: American Math Competition (AMC), AIME, PROMYS, Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Calculus, Geometry, Analysis, Linear Algebra, Abstract Algebra.

My method is followed by the quote of Josef Albers "Good Teaching is more a giving of right questions than a giving of RIGHT answers."

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.

Linear Algebra

Linear algebra is the branch of mathematics concerning vector spaces and linear mappings between such spaces. Such an investigation is initially motivated by a system of linear equations containing unknowns. Such equations are naturally represented using the formalism of matrices and vectors. Linear algebra is central to both pure and applied mathematics. Being a third year math graduate student, a teaching assistant, and researching assistant, I am good at linear algebra. Moreover, I passed the written qualifying exam for PhD requirement two years ago, and linear algebra is one of topics of the exam.
