About Ka

I am Ka. I graduated from the University of Illinois with a Mathematics major, with minors in Education and teaching English as a Second Language. I have tutored throughout high school and college. After graduating from college, I worked at Mathnasium and I am currently a high school teacher in Illinois. I enjoy teaching and tutoring because I love to see others feeling confident about something that they were unsure of.

I am currently teaching Algebra 1 and Geometry at a high school. Outside of teaching in the classroom, I also hold after school sessions when students can come for individualized help. I have also tutored students who are home bound and needed extra help from other classes. Before I became a teacher, I tutored at Mathnasium, which gave me experience tutoring K-12 students in a one to one setting.

My goal for tutoring is not only improve students' knowledge in the content area, I would love to help students feel confident and have the believe that they can be successful in the future. If you have any questions or if you would like to schedule lessons, please feel free to contact me at any time.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.

Knowledgeable, patient and really nice tutor!

Ka is extremely clear in her teaching style and will show alternate solutions or ways of getting the solution with every problem. She is patient when her student doesn't get something and is then able to explain the concepts really clearly. Overall, Ka is excellent :-)
