I hold a B.A. in molecular and cell biology from University of California at Berkeley and a B.S. in health Science from University of the Sciences in Philadelphia. I love teaching and enjoy working with students of all ages. I served as a teacher's assistant in my math, English and Chinese classes since I excelled in those classes during middle and high school. I have taught my younger sister piano and my friends' kids Mandarin and math. For the past several years of working as a professional tutor, I have tutored students of all ages and backgrounds in elementary math, algebra, geometry, statistics/biostatistics, and Mandarin. One of my recent assignments was tutoring a 14-year-old girl Mandarin. I reviewed previously-learned words with her and also introduced Chinese grammar, basic sentence structures and new words. I created easy-to-read handouts, systematic charts, fun exercises and challenging quizzes to help her learn. It was a very fun and rewarding experience. Growing up in Taiwan, I speak and write fluent Mandarin Chinese. My strengths also include statistics/biostatistics, middle school and high school math. I am dedicated to helping students improve their school performance and achieve their academic goals.
Since my objective is to help students succeed, I strive to be not only a homework helper but a great teacher/leader/mentor transforming students' academic lives. I believe there is so much I can learn from each student how to make a significant difference in their learning process, and I aspire to uncover students' hidden potential and help them eventually become independent thinkers. Please let me know if I have the chance to get to know you and bring out the best of you!
