About Irene

I am Irene, a licensed math teacher, and an experienced math teacher from California. I was a middle school math teacher at the School of the Epiphany for seven years. I taught 6th grade math, 7th grade Pre-Algebra, and 8th grade Algebra 1. I was the Math coordinator for the Math Decathlon and proud to say that our school had won consistently in Math in the said competition. I was the middle school math teacher of Saint Elizabeth Catholic School, Las Vegas, NV from November 2012-June 2013. I love children and I have the passion of teaching math to my students.

I have a flexible working schedule. I can assure my students that they will benefit greatly from their tutorial lessons with me.
