I am also a VIPKID tutor in which I tutor children overseas one on one in English. I truly enjoy teaching and tutoring.

I am proficient in getting students to master basic math skills, computation, and number recognition. I have been recognized for getting elementary students to perform at optimal levels on district math assessments. I use various tools to help children succeed such as computer games, hand games, manipulative, math stories, and basic workbooks. I would first assess your child to see what level they are currently working at so that I can know what point to work at.
