UC Irvine B.S. in Mathematics 2008 UCLA M.Ed 2010
I am a young professional educator, who strive to help students gain conceptual understanding, build a set of solid study skills and procedural fluency, apply their knowledge to the real world, and have fun while learning. I am currently serving as a math teacher at Duarte High School in Duarte. I am teaching and developing the Integrated Math 1 and Integrated Math 2 Common Core curriculum while teaching SAT II Chinese on Saturdays. It is a long story how I got to where I am today and where I shall go from here with a mathematics degree. For the past five years, I have been teaching Chinese as I needed to make ends meet. I enjoyed teaching Mandarin to non-native speakers; however, when it comes to teaching math my heartbeats double. I have also previously served as a mathematics and SAT instructor at American Cambridge Institute (ACI Institute), an institute that aim to educate young individuals to succeed in all areas of life. I have taught Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2, Math Analysis/Pre-Calc, Calculus, SAT 1 Math, and SAT 2 Chinese. If you would like more information on ACI, please take a look at the following website: http://www.aciprep.com/ Furthermore, I had the opportunity to work with community college students who are transitioning from high school to college or coming back to college in the following courses: Statistics (Math 110) and College Algebra (Math 71X) at Mount San Antonio College in Walnut, CA.
