Hi there,

I am a graduate student pursuing a Ph.D. in sciences. I have extensive experience in tutoring students from primary school to college. In college and graduate school, I have been a teaching assistant on engineering economy and other scientific subjects.

Since moving to California, I have served as a private tutor for high school students. I am very familiar with the school curriculum, SAT and GRE requirements. One of my tutees, Michelle, was once struggling with sciences. After a few weeks of classes, she managed to get As for her tests in both maths and sciences.

My teaching philosophy is centered around patient guidance and encouragement for my students. I always work with my students to find the best way to teach. I understand that learning new materials could be intimidating. As a patient and experienced tutor, I will help students to deepen their understanding of the concepts. More importantly, I will help them develop useful study skills that will serve them well into the future. For example, great skills to have are getting organised and prepared for classes and revise concepts regularly.

I am here to help students to become more confident and capable learners in their academic pursuits. Looking forward to work with you in the future!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Chinese

Born and grown up in China, I am a native speaker of Chinese. I could teach writing, reading, and speaking Chinese to both beginners and advanced learners. From past teaching experience, I have accumulated many useful teaching materials such as hand-outs and homework sheets for my students.

Computer Programming

I have extensive experience in computer programming in languages such as C, C++, MATLAB, PYTHON, IDL etc. Since college, I have been working on research projects that involve intensive programming. Learning computer programming is an extremely fulfilling experience for me. I hope to share this joy with everyone.

Differential Equations

I hold a degree in Systems Engineering and am experienced in solving differential equations from school level to graduate school level. I am familiar with solving equations both analytically and numerically. With Matlab and other computing tools, I know how to set up the problem and solve it.

MATLAB

I have been using MATLAB in college and graduate school.
I am proficient in all the important features of MATLAB, such as reading data and plotting them out.
In addition, I have been plotting graphs with MATLAB for preparing scientific publications.

Python

I have been using python for my research for more than one year. I have extensive experience in writing python codes to solve scientific and engineering problems. In addition, I am experienced in using python for plotting publication-quality figures. Besides that, I have used it for combining codes written in Fortran, C, IDL. It is an extremely useful language to learn and would be very helpful for everyone's career development in research.
