About Mirah

I have taught Math for 19 years for students of different schools that use various curriculum such as International Baccalaureate, Cambridge and Indonesia national curriculum as well. I was a math teacher for middle school students in a well known Catholic school in my home country. I love tutoring Math because I can see the difference that I can make by teaching my students personally, from the subject that they first dislike at the beginning and can bring confidence to them on the subject. I am so happy to be the one who is able to see their smiles when they finally can master the topics, have better understanding and improve their scores too. It makes me really proud to know how my students have become confident enough to teach their friends that have Math difficulty at school in turn.

I specialize in tutoring Math, SAT Math preparation, ACT Math Preparation and Indonesian language from sixth grade up to college. I cover all math topics up to calculus.

One of my goals from each session is to make the students gain better understanding of solving new and more difficult problems to stimulate their Math problem-solving experiences to prepare them in facing various problems that they might have on their tests. I use some approaches using real life examples and some hands-on objects that relate to the topics being learned to help the students understand better if I see they have difficulties to get the idea because it is too abstract for them.

Indonesian is my mother tongue and I am able to teach bilingual for students who are Indonesian or Malay. I have 7 on my IELTS (International English Language Testing System) overall score so I do not have difficulties to teach in English either.

I look forward to hearing from you to help you achieve more with your Math!
