"I have substantial know-how in working with students with greatly varying ages and abilities due to my extensive tutoring experience and have tutored a variety of math topics ranging from simple geometry to college algebra and pre-calculus. Aside from math, I have also taught 8 sessions of after school English to a class of about 10 students back in my hometown of Hong Kong.

I believe strongly in allowing students to solve problems on their own, offering help only when necessary to enhance their critical thinking skills. I see all students as individuals with extremely high potential who can shape the world and contribute to the community at large if they are guided and nurtured well. This firm belief in a child’s potential is extremely important from my point of view as it has been proven in psychological studies that such belief will on average become a self-fulfilling prophecy.

Tutoring is a fond interest of mine due to the fact that I love seeing people improve and perhaps even grow to be fond of a subject that they once disliked.

I have an excellent grasp of nearly all subject matter up to high school calculus. I possessed a string of 100% test scores for individual areas of math all throughout middle school and received full marks in the math section of the SAT. I have Multiple Gold certificates in the junior and intermediate Australian Mathematical Challenge. My strengths lie in visualizing shapes so areas of mathematics such geometry is a breeze for me.

Good attributes that define me include being personable and fun-loving. Some hobbies of mine include running, camping and freediving- just putting that out there so you know I am not a math hermit." less...
