Bio

Hello,

We can do it together!

When I was a student, I loved math. It is my favorite subject. I learned it from books, teachers and professors. I also worked and tried many activities and figured out many problems. All that mix gave me the opportunity to see the beauty of math and enjoy the elegance in advanced and abstract parts of math.

I have a master degree in math.

When I work with student, I guide. I ask questions. I am looking for the “Aha!” moment. It is when the student gets it...

Hello,

We can do it together!

When I was a student, I loved math. It is my favorite subject. I learned it from books, teachers and professors. I also worked and tried many activities and figured out many problems. All that mix gave me the opportunity to see the beauty of math and enjoy the elegance in advanced and abstract parts of math.

I have a master degree in math.

When I work with student, I guide. I ask questions. I am looking for the “Aha!” moment. It is when the student gets it and makes the discovery. The student answers help to see what is missing and I help student to learn what is missing. I help fix misconceptions. I also help student identify weaknesses and fix them.

I help student learn geometry. We work on identifying objects, understanding definitions and using them to relate properties of geometric figures. We can use visual approach, observation and hands on to figure out what the answer should be. I guide students to find answers and write proofs. I help also with deriving and using formulas for perimeter, area and volume. By creating connection between formulas, we create a visual image for student to remember and retrieve necessary information.

I enjoy solving problems and helping students that are interested in math. I like to draw a picture of a problem, make a diagram or act the problem. We can draw a table or make a graph.

"I do, we do, you do" is one way I can help you learn. You learn to ask yourself the important questions and decode the problem. I can help you become independent learner.

We can do it together! This is your chance to start working better and become an excellent student.

Thank you for your time.
See you soon online or in person.

Elementary Math

Elementary Math

Big part of elementary math is understanding numbers, operations and working with fractions. I worked with students from lower grades and help them grasp concepts and clear misunderstanding. One example is prime numbers. I had this student who mistakenly taught that the prime number needs to be shown as a sum of other numbers. It is different, a prime number must have only one prime factor - itself.

Algebra 1

I taught Algebra 1 in high school and middle school settings for several years. I use real life examples to help understanding of algebra. We will connect what math is with your experience to help remembering and using math. Visual approach and hand on are other tools we may use so you can gain confidence solving problems. We also use pen and pencil to aid the advancement and connecting concepts.

Calculus

I taught calculus 1 to a local college two years ago. I had 9 students and 6 of them passed the class successfully. My undergraduate degree includes electrical engineering class, which uses complex numbers math. I have also some classes in my graduate math degree in calculus.
Geometry,

Geometry

I taught 7 years high school geometry. This is the subject that excites me the most. Proofs, classic tools construction and calculations are well understood. We can use construction tools to help understanding and connecting geometry with you already know. I can help you also with two column and paragraph proofs.

Precalculus

Precalculus

I have studied and taught all of the topics of precalculus. This include functions, linear functions, graphing functions, graphing polynomial functions, and zeros of polynomials. Part of the class is rate of change and slope of a line. I also taught rational and irrational numbers and I have excellent understanding of them.

Linear Algebra,

Linear Algebra

I have a master's degree in math. One of the graduate classes was Linear Algebra 535. The textbook used for that class is Matrix analysis and applied Linear Algebra by Carl Meyer. Also, I used methods from Linear algebra in some other of my advanced classes. One example is Regression Analysis 563.

Trigonometry

Trigonometry

There are trigonometry of right triangle and trigonometry of real numbers. Both work the same way. We can work on trigonometric equations, trigonometric identities or use sine and cosine theorems to find length of side in a triangle.
