Michelle's Math Tutoring Services
I currently own a company called The Math Cheat Code where we help students with their Math learning needs. I graduated with a 4.0 for my B.S. in Exercise Science (Health and Human Performance, and Sports Performance emphasis) with minors in Introduction to Nutritional Science, Japanese, and Psychology back in April 2019. I've also graduated (Dec 2021) with my M.S. in Strength and Conditioning Studies. With my degrees, I'm proficient in Math and English as I have to be in order to provide the best service to my clients. I've also been tutoring Math and English, along with other various subjects, for about 9 years. I've played tennis for at least 18 years and still going strong, and I'm very passionate in teaching people the sport. I've coached tennis for about 10 years. Through my travels around the world for tennis, I have picked many languages such as Malay and Japanese. I am fluent in English and Malay, and semi-fluent in Japanese, Mandarin and Hokkien. I am also a strength and conditioning/ sports performance coach (CSCS certification throught the NSCA).
I enjoy watching people grow and become better at the things they have uptaken for themselves to do. It brings me great joy to see them be able to master the things that they were once not so proficient or good at. It is great to be able to communicate and interact with people who are interested in bettering themselves.

My base rate is $60/hr for a single student. However, I am looking to work and negotiate the price with you if needed. Group classes are dependent on the number of students in the group and the duration of the lesson. If you have any other questions about my pricing, feel free to contact me :)

Find someone who fits your needs and can work with you. Like any human interaction, it takes a "click" for things to really start rolling.
What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?
What do you want to work on? What are your strengths? How do you think you can improve? What do you think works best for you? What do you understand about this topic/concept? What are you confused about this topic/concept?
