I have more than four years of classroom experience in the Chicago area, as well as Mainland China. I specialize in teaching English as a Second Language (ESL), Algebra I, Algebra II, Geometry, as well as junior high and elementary school math.
In the high school setting, I have taught Geometry, Algebra I, and ESL. My teaching style for students of this age is to provide plenty of opportunity for in-class practice and feedback -- which came both from me and other students. Since students learn via a variety of styles (kinesthetic, visual, auditory), I always tried to incorporate all three elements in each example I introduced. My students would say that I am a good motivator, and always am patient when guiding them on problems.
I also have extensive tutoring experience, having created and run an after school tutoring program at two different schools. At an elementary school, I tutored kindergarten bilingual (Spanish) students in math, reading, and English. At the high school level, I tutored math of all levels, from Algebra I to Trigonometry. I also have worked as an ESL Reading Aide for K-6 students, where I taught phonics, reading, and writing to newly arrived ESL students.
