“A hundred years from now it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in, or the kind of car I drove... but the world may be different because I was important in the life of a child.”


Forest E. Witcraft 



My name is Kay. I wanted to share the story of how it all began!

As a student in elementary school, I was never fond of math. I constantly dreaded going to class not realizing what was causing the dislike towards mathematics, let alone knowing how to overcome it. This continued to happen until I met my 6th grade math teacher, Mr. Appa. He showed us a fun way to learn math. This completely changed my perspective about mathematics. It made a huge impact on my career path.


I developed a lifelong love for mathematics and successfully graduated from California State University with a Master’s Degree in Electrical Engineering with a GPA 3.9. This was possible because of the passion for math that was cultivated early on. I have been an educator for students in elementary school all the way up to college.

I am very passionate about teaching math. It gives me immense pleasure to see the spark when a student understands a concept and is energized to learn the next level! Understanding a concept and feeling confident about the achievement gets my students ready to move mountains!

Much like there are many ways to solve a math problem, there are many ways to teach a student. I have made it my goal to identify the way students learn and make education more enjoyable. After learning with Happy Bug Academy, your student will bring home better test scores and see a bright future ahead. Boost their confidence as they are getting ready to embark on an exciting journey of college applications and career path!
