Certified Algebra Tutor in San Mateo, CA

My entire educational background was spent in science and math classes, often it wasn't easy for me, so I understand what it's like to struggle with something and feel like you will never understand. But if you work the problems enough times and never quit you'll get through it. And asking for help is never a bad thing, no one has ever gotten through all of this without help.... Understanding what it is you're doing is always the goal, but in the meantime get through the problem, and then do it 10 more times. You might feel like you're just memorizing it, but you'll be surprised how easy it is to understand something after doing this.

...school kids or Competition Math. I think the value in me as a tutor is teaching students how to solve problems on their own, instead of just relying on me to give them the answers. I can teach students the importance of not giving up, ease the pressure they get from academics, and help them to comprehend the learning material more easily. I am able to put myself in their shoes and help them guide...

...I focus on assisting students by patiently asking questions to help guide their thinking and using manipulatives and/or technology where appropriate rather than telling them step by step what to do. I also recognize that each student is unique and has his/her own learning style, so I try to modify what and how I teach to best suit the student's learning style. Outside of the education realm, I enjoy hiking, cooking, reading, playing badminton, and...
