Teacher Chan graduated from UCLA with a Bachelor's degree in Statistics. His extensive experience as a math instructor has taught him that each student is different in the way the material is understood. His pedagogy has been to adapt to the needs of each student and in doing so, make an effort to connect with each individual, be relatable, and foster a positive learning environment where the material is presented in a manner easy to digest. Chan sincerely wishes that every student he teaches slowly becomes to love math and purely enjoy the learning experience with him!

For Teacher Kate, there is nothing more exciting than learning (though teaching is a close second!). She had the opportunity to do both while studying at English and Biology as an undergraduate at Stanford University and then through graduate English at Georgetown University, where she was a Writing Center Fellow and taught creative non-fiction courses. Intricacies of grammar, tools of rhetoric, well-crafted language, and the pure joy of literature fascinate and inspire her. Kate finds few things more satisfying than helping students discover deep truths in books and their own voices on the page, and she absolutely insists on having fun while doing so. She's also a lifelong learner across a range of disciplines, from history to sociology to physics to philosophy, and is always excited to explore those and many other topics with her students.
