About Chia

I've had experience teaching and tutoring math as a grad student in math, and currently work as a math tutor at the community college. It's been very gratifying to take students who are struggling with math to the point where they are crying and get them to feel better about their progress. I try hard to prepare students not just for the class they're currently taking, but also give them a good background for future math classes.

One of the stumbling blocks for some students is simple lack of confidence in their skills. I had a case like that once with calculus student. It was costing the student time on his exam, and therefore his grades. We worked a couple hours a week for few months as he prepared for his IB exams (International Baccalaureate, like AP). Having that consistent feedback and practice eventually helped him earn good passing grades in the class, as well as on his IB exam. I was delighted to hear he'd earned acceptance at University in Scotland. Having that kind of positive influence in a person's life is very satisfying. I see that at the community college as well, and when you see them over the course of a few semesters, they learn to trust your guidance.

I usually tutor in a public location such as a public library or coffee shop. That has worked out well as we've been able to make use of resources at the library.
