I am fortunate to have benefitted from being educated in both the Asian and the Western education systems. I have learned to develop mathematical knowledge through rigorous practice that requires conceptual understanding of the Asian approach in learning math. At the same time, I have learned the creative approach of learning mathematics that integrates different concepts and subject matters in the Western education system.
I will help students to -
Comprehend basic concepts and solidify their foundational knowledge.
Link previously-learned mathematical knowledge to new concepts.
Explore and describe natural laws, make predictions, form conjectures and reason logically.
Develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills.
Understand mathematical concepts by using manipulatives / hands-on learning tools, games and hands-on activities.
A deep conceptual understanding of Mathematics and its beauty is more important than rote memorization and computational speed. Besides achieving academic excellency, it is also my passion to help students develop a love of mathematics by understanding the many different facets of it. I will share my enthusiasm and knowledge with my students so that they can see that Mathematics can be interesting, beautiful, and useful.
