PhD Student offering math, statistics, and economics courses in Honolulu and via Zoom, with over 7 years of experience

Methodology

I work as a supplemental instructor to an existing course. In a typical lesson, we will review the concepts from that week in school, and go over them again as necessary. I believe that the best way to learn is by doing! I like having students work through problems and explain their thought process so we can adjust as needed.

Background

I have been tutoring since 2009 with a goal to make "hard" or "scary" subjects seem fun! I believe everyone can do math, they just need to find how they learn it best. I come from a diverse background of subjects, and so can offer a variety of perspectives. I truly love teaching and want to see every student succeed.

Rates

Rate for online lessons : $20/h

Details

The rates increase with the level of difficulty of the subject. My rates for upper college and graduate level courses is $30/hour. I specialize in advanced mathematics (Calculus and beyond), plus statistics/econometrics and economics.
