I love living with a purpose and I believe that helping others achieve their academic success is a rewarding opportunity. My teaching belief is composed of two things: the importance of individualized attention and goal accomplishment. With my education in Psychology I learned that no one person is the same. That means every individuals learn differently and require teaching style that is catered to how each students think. So that is how I strive to teach. I want to teach you the way you want to be taught. Second, setting goals is an important part of our relationship. This is because goals help you understand what you need to do to achieve them. If getting an A in your algebra class is your goal, perfect, we can set a weekly, achievable goals that helps you get that A by the end of the semester.

What is your teaching philosophy?
Catering to individual needs are my main priority when teaching, as I believe that every student has a preferred learning style that is unique to him/herself.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
The first session establishes personality compatibility, and thus I would like to spend few minutes to get to know you. I also like to set up goals throughout the school year for you to stay on track. I want you to get the most out of my sessions!
How can you help a student become an independent learner?
Independent learning takes practice. Through trial and error we can find you a learning style and habit that is perfect for you, together. :) And slowly, you can learn to motivate yourself.
