HobbiesTeaching is a fun and challenging activity for me. I have lectured and tutored for 15 years! During these years, I have come to realize that the biggest hurdle students face is their own insecurities. It is very rewarding for me to observe my students grow, improve, and gain confidence in their abilities. Not only do I make sure that they are learning all of the relevant technical skills; I also like to impart effective studying methods and philosophies that have worked for me. I find my teaching method particularly very effective in a one-on-one setting. I pride myself on being able to create a comfortable and friendly atmosphere for the student. Please don't hesitate to contact me!

An excellent tutor! Hb tutored my 18-year-old in precalculus for several months. She was professional, knowledgeable, and my kid really liked her. But the best part was that my kid's math grade went from a C to an A in that time, and I'm convinced Hb helped her do it. Highest recommendation.
