I know math is a major source of anxiety for many. I am here as a guide: to help students transition from worrying into confidence. I have a bachelor's degree in mathematics from the University of Washington and I tutor grades 7-College.
My tutoring style is adaptive: I am interested in both theoretical and applied approaches to math.
Instead of a one-sided lecture, my lesson plans are more interactive: a discussion between the student and I.
Every session begins with a set of flexible goals to alleviate anxiety the student might have.
I help the student become familiar with the material by setting examples and practice problems. We would also discuss the key details in these problems while providing the intuition of 'why'.
An important fact of life to iterate is that one’s age or background is no impediment to one’s success in education. I worked with high schoolers and adults that took time off school to help with their families. One of my students had a learning disability. His UCLA program’s accommodations paired me with him. His major had an introductory abstract math series that his associate's degree didn’t prepare him for and he was struggling. We rehearsed the basics, bit into the intuition and rigor of real analysis and proofing, and to his excitement: his D- improved into an A. I worked with him throughout the 2020 academic school year. His continual gratitude and elation over his overt progress are one of the most treasured tutoring memories of mine.
