Sylvia Chen received her B.A. in Biochemistry in 1987 from Harvard College, completed her medical degree in 1991 from Columbia College of Physicians and Surgeons, and finished her pediatric residency in 1994 from Baylor. Subsequently, she practiced as a pediatrician for a few years before she and her husband decided to homeschool their children.  She enjoyed seeing and sharing God’s worldview whether it be in a drop of water or her favorite tearjerker, Charlotte’s Web. Her experience in teaching has varied widely having taught on the pediatric wards, led homeschool co-ops in science, math, and literature, served in Sunday school, and tutored SAT and math. Having appreciated the help of Wilson Hill Academy in teaching her youngest child, she considers it a privilege to serve in the math department. She currently lives in Queens, New York with her husband, children, in-laws, and an axolotl. She and her family attend and serve in Franklin Square OPC Church. Finally, Sylvia attributes her love for homeschooling to her mom, who nursed a 4th grade Sylvia, suffering with pneumonia at home, and taught her lessons she has never forgotten.
