Class Time(s):

Option A: Thursday, 4:00 - 4:30 PM PT

Option B: Monday, 4:00 - 4:30 PM PT

Grades: 1 to 8

Program Leader: Angelo Valencia

Program Description: Math can sometimes seem easy and boring, but oftentimes, that's just the school curriculum. In YAPA Kids Math, we'll be tackling a unique curriculum and a new type of problem for the more advanced students: AMC 8 competition math problems. These are fun, interesting, and most of all, out-of-the-box questions that will significantly improve the students' logical abilities, applicable to all fields of STEM. Logical reasoning skills, when trained from an early age, can give students an edge in high school and in life for any problem solving. We will start of with the easier questions that anyone in grades 4-7 can solve, and gradually move up to more challenging questions as students become better equipped and skilled at creating solutions. Other than these problems, each class has their own quiz-style curriculum that aims to help students practice their math fundamentals. We aim towards providing weekly practice that can help many improve and polish their math skills.

Tinu Tope Awofeko

Are monsters good at math? Not unless you Count Dracula (ba dum tss).
Good day, I'm Tinu, I live in Canada and I am a senior in high school! I am currently taking AP Calculus BC because I like challenges and all-nighters. I've always felt that math is all about creative logic; being able to understand a basic concept and apply it in anyway you are asked. I have tutored younger kids for international math contests in the past so don't fret if you don't get a concept right away, you're not alone! Math kind of has a bad rep in schools so I promise that I will try my best to make learning this subject fun and easy!

Nikhil Jagota

Hello! I'm Nikhil Jagota, and I'm currently a rising junior attending Fremont High School. At my school, I am taking the class Pre-Calculus Honors, having completed all those before it. Recently, I've competed in math competitions like AMC. I love learning math because of how logical math is, and I'm really excited to teach you all about it!

Princess Santillan

Hi everyone! My name is Princess Hannah Santillan, and I am a current junior at Mark Keppel High School. I am currently taking AP Statistics and have taken Algebra 2/Geometry and Accelerated Math 3. Although I may not have as much experience or awards, my goal is to still be able to provide the younger students a fundamental basis in mathematics to help benefit them in the future. With this, I hope that we are able to enjoy learning from one another.

Ramya Palani

Hi everyone! My name is Ramya Palani and I'm a rising junior at Cupertino High School! Math is one of my favorite subjects at school as I love to explore its vast applications and challenge myself with difficult problems. Currently this year I am a tutor for an Algebra 1 class at my school, so I have lots of experience tutoring students in math and can't wait to work with all of you!

Nont Kaewtrakulpong

Hey guys! I'm Nont. I'm currently a junior in Homestead High School and currently taking AP Calculus BC. I have experience teaching Math to students at school afterclass, and I also have experience teaching K-8 kids before. Hope we can get along and have fun together!

Audreena Javid

Hello everybody! My name is Audreena Javid and I am currently a rising junior attending Cupertino High School with years of tutoring experience. Working with kids myself for a while, I have seen a lot of progress. Although I am currently in Algebra II (having taken geometry and algebra I), I am still motivated to spread my knowledge to younger kids in an effective and exciting way!
