Helping a Student

Passion for teaching

Teaching has been my passion since my school days. I would teach English and Math to kids requiring extra help. Driven by my continued desire to help students work through their challenges and do better at school, I offer personalized tutoring to students from kindergarten through high school. My goal is not only to advance my students in their core school curriculum but also to evolve and excel in their ability to learn and retain the information so they can independently solve problems and seek answers.

Over the course of years, I have helped many students achieve their target scores in SAT and ACT math sections. I am cognizant that the high school students have to juggle their time between studying to get better grades at school, memorizing for the AP tests, preparing for the SAT/ACT tests, working the community service hours, and participating in extracurricular activities. I have done my best to write a book that will enable students, in the least possible time, to learn and remember how to solve questions that appear on the SAT math sections. 


Love for gardening

Summer is exciting here on the east coast in USA. I can finally put on a hat, pick up a shovel, and dig some holes here and there. My vegetable garden consists of different types of tomatoes and herbs. I love to plant a variety of annuals in different colors in pots and in my mini-gardens all around the house. My favorites are periwinkles, marigolds, and begonias. And, I do spend a lot of time watering them.

By the end of June, my mini gardens are about ready for me to enjoy with a book and some iced tea.


Always for traveling

I could say that I inherited the traveling genes from my mother and passed them on to my children. For the last decade and a half, we been packing our bags whenever we get a chance. Traveling around the world has given us a new perspective on our existence in the society and on culture.

I hope that some day I can assimilate our experiences and, of course, pics and videos, and put together a blog!

In case you are wondering where the above pic was taken, it is at Falkland islands with Rockhopper penguins on a blustery day.
