##### About Pek Hwa

I have a passion for Mathematics and for this reason I made the decision over 10 years ago to help others who struggle in this area. I am a college graduate with a BS in Medical Technology and a MA in Teaching. It is my past education in teaching that became the springboard to my tutoring business. Since that time I have tutored students from Middle School through High School in all levels of math. I have tutored hundreds of students in Pre-Algebra, Algebra, Geometry, Algebra 2, Trigonometry, Pre-Calculus and Calculus. I have three children of my own who are all college graduates now. I am very familiar with the local curricula and the core of my students are local. Also, as a parent I understand how important communication is so that all are informed as to the students progress. I not only want to see grades improve but also an increase in confidence. I believe confidence is more than half the battle to becoming a successful math student!

As a private tutor, it is important to me to understand the type of student I am working with and to determine which techniques work best for them. In my current experience, I believe working one on one gives me that ability. My goal is to see students succeed and become more confident. The one on one teaching that I do allows the student to work in a more stress free environment and also provides opportunity for questions with immediate answers. I also feel it is important to introduce different ways to find solutions to problems and allow the student to choose which one they find works best for them. Another goal extremely important to me, is that I want to equip each student with the necessary tools to be able to discern how to solve problems and why they work. I spend the time necessary to explain why certain steps are taken and why they are important. This method then offers the student the ability to recall the information which in turn will help them in subsequent math classes

I currently tutor out of my home as it gives a more comfortable space to work in and allows me to use all the resources I need that are necessary for the different levels. I am fairly flexible with time and do allow makeup sessions, when available, in the event one has to cancel. I have worked with many students whose schedules need to be flexible, especially those involved in school sports, as well as, any other after school activities and obligations.

I believe I am a good math tutor because I am patient, kind and very structured. I encourage all successes as it is the key to confidence. I have been a successful tutor at all levels and I believe it is because of my disposition. Students are comfortable with me.

I look forward to working with you. I will work around any scheduling issues you may have. Thank you for the opportunity!
