About this tutor

I am a senior in NYU who is majoring in math and economics. I have been teaching students for 5 years. 

I taught stuents in Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Pre-calculus, AP Calculus AB, AP Calculus BC, Linear Algebra, and Trigonometry classes. Since I am studying math myself at school, I know the importance of clear explanation.

I also helped students prepare for standardized tests like SAT Math Subject Test, SAT Reading and Math, ACT Reading and Math, SSAT, and TOEFL. I have been in private boarding school in the United States from the age 13, so I have gone through basically every standardized test that is used for admission in the United States. Testing so many standardized tests have helped me gain real skills. 

Lastly, students come from many different backgrounds. I had a student with attention disability. I had a student from weak English background. Working with these students have taught me that flexibility in teaching is key. 

I love being an adult in someone's life. When I was growing up, all the tutors who have come in and helped were my role models. When I teach my students, I want to be their role models, too.

I know there are many tutors out there with many years of experience, who are pro at teaching students knowledge and skills. That's not my area of expertise. I primarily want to be remembred as "that tutor who never gave up on explaining a concept." My patience is really high, and I LOVE explaining one thing forever. I believe that is the correct mindset an educator should have.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

If you need help in math, I first want to know if your goal is improving grades, just improving understanding, or test prep(for APs or SATs). I am A+ at improving understanding of a subject, because I am a student myself. I am A in improving test scores because I am basically a test machine (I took so many standardized tests so far in life). I have MANY questions for you to solve for each standardized tests. However, if your need is on improving school grade FAST, I want to meet with you in person. If my way of explaining doesn't fit your style, you should go look for another tutor.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I am majoring in math and economics in NYU. Math is obviously my area of expertise. However, I have taught SAT and ACT for 3 years. Although I don't have professional training in tutoring, there are many benefits that being a student offers me. First, because I am a student, I know how to explain things clearly. Also, all standardized tests are still fresh in my mind because it has not been long since I took them. 


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

I live in New York. My hourly price is $30 + cost of train ticket to your place. 


How did you get started teaching?

I volunteered at a local autism center for 6 years. After I decided to major in math, a parent asked me if I can tutor his son. That was my first tutoring job. I taught him algebra 2 for 6 months. I also helped him with application to secondary schools. He was fortunate enough to get in to his first choice. The joy of seeing him grow was so big. After that, I have done my best to help many students who have different needs. 


What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with students with disabilities, students with autism, students with weak English backgrounds. However, I should admit that most of my students have been smart high school students who want to go to a good college with enough financial aid. 


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

If you are taking a standardized tests, look for teachers who have MANY problem sets. You don't need to solve all the problems, but teachers with many problems sets usually have more knowledge about levels of the test. If you are struggling in math, hire a teacher who knows about the textbook you are using at school. 


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

You should CLEARLY know about your needs. If you struggle in tests, think about what forms of questions you struggle the most in. If you struggle with understanding, think about what chapter was beginning of your confusion. If you are a test taker, always have the test date in mind. Just preparing for a test in the future is not enough motivation. Register for a test, and ask your teacher how much they can help you.
