Behind the 4.0 GPA on my Master’s Degree transcript, you would have never thought that I had been a C student from middle school to 11th grade, then my whole studying attitude drastically changed.

So what happened...?  It was all because of ONE new Math teacher in Grade 12. Somehow he took interest in me, and often offered me challenges to answer difficult questions in front of all my classmates. Being put under the spotlight, no joke...he really made me think hard! I will never forget that moment of feeling of how a correct answer to a question matters. After receiving compliments for a couple of times after I had the correct answers, I felt an irresistible drive in me. I told myself - not only that I could not let myself down, also I could not let my teacher down, as he had vested his confidence in me. From that day onwards, I aimed for nothing less than straight As, and never looked back. This was how I was being brought to be the me I am today.  

My teacher may not have known how much he had impacted my life, but I thankfully do! He has helped me realize dreams that I may not even dare to dream before.

I left home (Hong Kong) to Canada for my Undergraduate studies, and came to Atlanta for my Master’s. I have been tutoring for over 25 years, for students at different grades from middle school to Kennesaw State University level.

I understand that each student is unique, and each comes with different learning experiences from previous math teachers - some may be good, while others could be bad. My mission as a teacher is to take interest in each of them, fuel them with confidence and passion in the subject, and equip them with all they need to excel further. I would not be there feeding answers to help students finish their homework assignments - which many students may eagerly hope, and which some teachers are being liked for. That would be too easy a task for me and them. Instead, I will help them build strong foundations and fundamentals, such that they could feel the pleasure and reinforcement when they are able to attain the correct answers themselves. This is the inner drive in them which I target to help them develop in my tutoring. Yes, you may say...this requires a lot of patience. But, this is where my area of forte is. I have the patience and track record of teaching both able students as well as students with Special Needs. It is just beyond imagination on how proud and satisfying it is for me to visualize my students reaching and surpassing increasingly challenging yardsticks I set for them from time to time.

Trust that you would find our partnership equally fruitful and worthwhile as it has been for me.

Tutoring subjects:

I have tutored all math levels, from elementary school to university level- algebra, geometry, trigonometry, precalculus, linear algebra, statistics, probability, SAT/ACT math.

Ages I’ve worked with:

I have worked with students of all ages, from 11 year old’s to adults; one on one private in person/online tutoring to classroom setting with 30+ students.

Success story:

I am the mother of Sean, who is in grade 9 at South Forsyth High School.  

I have been searching for a good Math tutor for Sean for a couple of years, as I had a couple of really bad experiences on the quality of tutors that my son learned from.  Not only that money and time was wasted, Sean’s confidence of his Math ability was also affected with repeated failures. And this is what worried me the most.

I was being recommended to Caleb by the mother of my son’s classmate, who shared with me how much her son has improved in the subject. With the introduction, Sean started having lessons with Caleb since 2018.

In our first meeting, Caleb asked me some questions about Sean, which no tutors had ever done so before. I didn’t know why he did that at first. But not long, I realized how important that was. Caleb is very thorough, and has good planning in teaching.  When I shared with him some of the learning habits of Sean, Caleb analyzed and customized his teaching approach for him. He also reviews with me on Sean’s progress periodically.  

I am surprisingly pleased to see how Sean has regained confidence in Math.  Math now even becomes his most favorite subject which I had never imagined before.  He used to hate it. I know the person I need to thank is Caleb, he brought interest back to Sean in the subject. What I gathered from other Moms, Caleb is very effective with his students and in his teaching. Now being one of the happy moms myself, I could be one of the voters for Caleb!
