...My B.S. and M.S. are in mathematics. I took a year of graduate level linear algebra. I was a full-time math teacher for three years.

...Therefore, I see myself as a language teacher, and as a language teacher I make sure my students not only know how to get the answer, but also why the answer is correct and why each step was required. I have done exactly this with my 4th-7th graders in the duration of 3 years I have worked as a tutor for Raya and Pace Academy. The approach I take is that of a surgeon.

...Algebra is tricky for students because your numbers suddenly turned into letters, and many teachers charge forward with rules that don't make sense to you. I equip students to understand what variables are, why equations work the way they do, and how those equations turn into graphs. I use object lessons like a mystery box for variables and balancing scales for equations.

...I also have had extensive experience with MATLAB which forces me to use Linear algebra extensively. Subsequent classes at Berkeley also required me to apply my skills in linear algebra and extend my knowledge of it. At UC Berkeley every incoming engineer is required to take a class in MATLAB.

...As a teacher, I like try to emphasize helping the student *understand* the important concepts, rather than just memorize a lot of seemingly unconnected facts or blindly calculate. If math's not your thing, I understand--there are lots of bad teachers out there. I want to show you that it can be fun... Really!
