# About Us

Hi, I’m Mike Estela. I am a secondary math teacher and undeniably, I LOVE Math. As an educator, I am passionate about creating free math tutorials and lessons to assist students with their math studies. The purpose of this website is to cover introductory, intermediate, and advanced algebra topics.

I teach math by exposing students to multiple types of problems based on the same topic or skill that have varying levels of difficulty. Whenever necessary, I include step-by-step instructions, diagrams, and illustrations. Each lesson is intended to be practical or informal in nature, making it more conversational, which makes it less intimidating for students or adults. It is my hope that you will find this math website helpful in your math journey. If you find any typos or errors, please let me know so I can correct them as soon as possible. Please feel free to contact me by email at contact(at)www.chilimath.com. Thanks a lot!

For teachers and homeschoolers, I have an online math store offering elementary and secondary math teaching resources. My goal is to help my fellow teachers save time by creating teaching resources so that they can focus on what they do best – that is teaching, guiding, mentoring, and inspiring children. To contact me about my online store, please email tpt(at)www.chilimath.com.
