Bio

Hi, I'm Miriam. I am double majoring in chemical engineering and mathematics (with concentrations in pure and computing) with a minor in classical piano at University of Massachusetts Amherst, Commonwealth Honors College. I have been receiving Chancellor's Scholarship as well as Dean's List Honors since first year. I lived in South Korea, Australia, Canada and I moved to America in 2012.

Hi, I'm Miriam. I am double majoring in chemical engineering and mathematics (with concentrations in pure and computing) with a minor in classical piano at University of Massachusetts Amherst, Commonwealth Honors College. I have been receiving Chancellor's Scholarship as well as Dean's List Honors since first year. I lived in South Korea, Australia, Canada and I moved to America in 2012. I can interact with students from various cultures. I am patient and open-minded.

One of the most powerful skills I have as a tutor is that I am able to explain the content in depth as well as teach the student the test strategies. I learned math from South Korea and America. In South Korea, speed and accuracy are two most significant skills for getting good grades in tests. In America, learning step by step but making sure to understand the concept deeply is the important thing. Therefore, I learned math deeply and always had extra time left in exams. I would like to share my math skills and strategies to students who are struggling with math and see their progresses.

I've been tutoring math (algebra 1 to calculus 1, 2 and SAT, ACT math) since March, 2014 and so far I have tutored over 45 students. They all have experienced a significant grade improvement: D to A-, B- to A+ and etc. I worked as a teaching assistant for Calculus 1 in Fall 2015 and for ChemEng120 Fundamentals in Spring 2016 at UMass, Amherst. I have been volunteering at a local high school (Amherst Regional High School) as a teaching assistant for precalculus honors and AP BC calculus since 2013.

I studied TOEFL for one month and got 109 out of 120. I got 770 in SAT Math and 780 in SAT Subject test Math II.
I am a black belt, 3rd degree in taekwondo. I specialize in poomse. I used to volunteer at the Amherst Martial Center teaching from little kids to adults.
I played piano for 18 years and I am minoring music at UMass, Amherst, studying under professor Gilles Vonsattel.
................................................................................
Currently, I am working at SABIC, a chemical company, as a technology intern assisting research and development in applications in consumer electronics.

Help with Algebra II

Miriam was patient and very knowledgeable of the subject she taught my daughter this week. She asked clear questions and provided constructive, concise answers to all of our daughter's needs and problems. She took the time to patiently review and work out any and all exercises until both were satisfied that the lessons were understood. She also had an upbeat personality and was very easy to communicate with. I would highly recommend her for Algebra II and any other math subjects she has expertise in.
