Bio

I have been a Math tutor since 1997 and I was a Math teacher in a well known Catholic school in my home country too from 2007 - 2011. I have experienced teaching with various curriculums such as International Baccalaureate, Cambridge and Indonesian national curriculum as well. I work with students on topics from Pre-algebra to Calculus 1, whether for a class or as part of test preparation such as ACT or SAT.

My goal as an effective tutor is to help my students personally, from the subject...

I have been a Math tutor since 1997 and I was a Math teacher in a well known Catholic school in my home country too from 2007 - 2011. I have experienced teaching with various curriculums such as International Baccalaureate, Cambridge and Indonesian national curriculum as well. I work with students on topics from Pre-algebra to Calculus 1, whether for a class or as part of test preparation such as ACT or SAT.

My goal as an effective tutor is to help my students personally, from the subject that they first dislike/struggle at the beginning into having a better understanding on the subject as they finish the tutoring session with me. It has been my personal achievement to witness my students’ smiles when they finally can master the topics and improve their scores.

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