I have always had a passion for solving math problems and seeing the 'aha' moment from students when they understand a topic while I was tutoring math at University of Washington in Seattle and Highline College gave me a lot of satisfaction and happiness in what I did. Hence, I am looking to utilize my spare time productively while doing something that I love.

I tutored math of all levels and physics at Highline College in Des Moines, WA for two years. I even have an advanced level tutoring certificate! I also tutored math and computer science at University of Washington in Seattle where I earned my degree in computer engineering. My favorite subject is math and I feel comfortable tutoring all levels of math through college. My tutoring style is simple. When a student asks me to help solve a problem or exercise, I explain the concept and give a related example. The student will then do the next problem. This way, the student will learn and the concept will stick.

I am a Software Engineer at IBM and in my extra time, I read about new technologies and tools, I play soccer, watch sports TV, and hang out with friends.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

Help the student figure out the solution, not just give out the answer, by giving hints and showing related examples.

What might you do in a typical first session with a student?

Ask their grade level, assess what the student knows and what areas of the topic the student needs help with.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

Give related problems and ask him/her to solve the required homework or exercise.

How would you help a student stay motivated?

1. Lead by example. 2. Be confident and try to instill confidence in the student. 3. Relate with the student

If a student has difficulty learning a skill or concept, what would you do?

Try a different methodology, take a break, and encourage the student to see the problem not as difficult but as easy to grasp.
