About Jae Ki

I have thought all secondary mathematics subjects from Basic algebra to calculus topics. I also earned Educational Doctoral degree (Ed.D) from Teachers College, Columbia University. While I was tutoring students with mathematics subjects, I realized that the ordinary approach is not motivating our students. So, I use a bit different approach. For example, I usually provide an opportunity for students to explain and discuss a topic with me. In order to do so, students and I need to study and research topics, and when to meet each other, students and I discuss about topics. I really believe if students have a chance to explore mathematics topics, they can understand the mathematical contents. This activity accumulates students mathematical content knowledge, and they can also connect between two or more than other mathematics subjects with current subject.
Now, I am an Assistant Professor at the mathematics department at Borough of Manhattan Community College, and have various chances to explore my approach in the classroom. Based on my experience, I observed that students enhance their mathematical skills, and get interested in studying mathematics.
Believe or not, all students have a potential to be good at mathematics. If your children struggle to study mathematics, please give me a chance to motivate your child instead.
