About Siu

Greetings,

My name is Ms. Siu L. and I have been working with students in the Northern NJ area for the past few years. Previously, I lived in NYC and worked with students from all 5 boroughs. I've had the pleasure of impacting a range of children's lives, including a variety of ages, English fluency, family background, home language, interest in math, and grade point averages. In order to teach in NYC and NJ, I have been fingerprinted with a clean background check.

My favorite subjects to teach are high school math and SAT prep. I also offer group workshops for the redesigned SAT.

I work with students to review challenging concepts, practice skills, engage in critical thinking, and to prepare them to enjoy and excel in college. I take into consideration students' time commitments and extra-curricular activities.

Classes take place in my dining room, equipped with school supplies, a photocopier, and the innovative use of a large tv as a whiteboard. I keep this space clean, quiet, comfortable, and free from distractions, so that the student can focus on our studies together. I review copies of students' quizzes and tests, so that I can assess their needs and strengths in order to prepare my lesson ahead of our session. And always, I keep the parents in the loop and answer emails or phone calls within 24 hours.

I look forward to speaking with you and learning how we can work together to empower your child!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Algebra 2

I have tutored students in Algebra II Level 3 College Prep, Level 4 Honors, and Level 5 Advanced Honors in the South Orange-Maplewood School District.

SAT Math

We can work together so your child can confidently answer Math questions including grid-ins, Algebra, and Geometry.

I have experience tutoring in SAT Math through test taking strategies and more importantly the Algebra I and Algebra II course material that is on the test.

I taught at a leading test preparation company for several years. My students started with subject scores ranging from the 400s to 600s. Most students gained 50-70 points after participating in class and completing their homework.

SAT Reading

When I lived in NYC, I worked for a leading test prep company.
Most students who participated in class and completed their homework gained 50-70 points in the Verbal section, which consists of questions on sentence completions and reading comprehension.

SAT Writing

In my past experience as a SAT instructor, my students have gained 50-70 points and their confidence in answering Writing and Grammar questions on error identifications, improving sentences, improving paragraphs and writing a cohesive essay no matter the prompt.
