I've been a math teacher and tutor for 7 years and have had great results. I enjoy working with all kinds of students and understand many different approaches based on their needs.
I have spent years abroad studying and working in China and studied from High School through College at Hamilton College. I attended ACC (Associated Colleges in China), a completely immersive year long course of study where I did not speak English once. I tested at OPI level 8 and later served as a translator at both the International Space University and as an English teacher at Google Systems in Beijing, China.
Over the past few years, though I am not a teacher myself, I have taught Praxis prep to about 8 separate students. Each of my students passed the exam after a few sessions. I am familiar with the exam itself, and the content.
