A professional statistician trained at Beijing University and University of Waterloo, has a long history with math coaching
and math competition. Her first TA assignment while pursuing her PH.D in Statistics was tutoring undergraduate students for Putnam
competition. Later, she rediscovered her love for teaching mathematics and solving math problems when her own kids showed great
interests in math and problem solving. She has been coaching math students since 2009 for Mathcounts, AMC, AIME and USA(J)MO competitions.
She was the founding coach of the IL/IN Area team for 2013 HMMT(Feb). The team achieved overall 14th in their first year
and then 8th place overall the year after. When she was in high school, she also participated actively in math competitions in China.

Ms. Sarah Selke

Sarah has devoted the past 20 years in meeting the demands of her two gifted children. She homeschooled
her children in mathematics since elementary school to better serve their needs. Working on challenging
math problems with her children and their friends alongside with their math coaches
were the happiest times in her life. After her children left home for college
(one sophomore in CS at CMU and the other Ph.D. student in Math at Stanford),
she becomes a private math coach training gifted K12 students for math competitions.
Sarah holds a Ph.D. from Electrical and Computer Engineering at Purdue University.
She was trained in Applied Mathematics in Tsinghua University in Beijing. She competed in many math
competitions in her younger days and she was the firstprize winner in high school in Hubei Province in 1984.
Sarah is one of the best lecturers in the Statistics Department at Purdue University. Her students say
