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!

To me, calculus is absolutely amazing and beautiful and is the greatest human invention of all time. Its theory has been applied and used in many other disciplines and changed our world today. I’ll be more than happy to help you unlock the mystery of early transcendentals and beyond.

Chinese

I am a native Mandarin Speaker. I came from Taiwan when I was 17 years old, and I still speak and write fluent Mandarin Chinese. I teach all levels of Chinese to people of all ages, and I can adjust my teaching speed and content according to your need and interest. I can teach the specific aspect of Chinese culture and language you want to learn.

Elementary Math

My teaching method is emphasized on conceptual learning rather than rote memorization. I would like to teach students how to think and how to be engaged in a fun mathematics world. My goal is to build a firm foundation for students' future learning.

Geometry

Geometry is an interesting branch of mathematics dealing with shapes and sizes of objects and their relative positions and properties. The rigorous science curriculum I have been through at Berkeley has sharpened my analytical and critical thinking skills. My in-depth knowledge and years of teaching experience have also equipped me with all the necessary skills to help students master this subject.

I have a lot of experience in test preparation. I'd love to continue helping students maximize their potentials and achieve high scores on their exams.

I have the most current practice tests and years of experience tutoring all levels of math. I am also very familiar with its content and structure which consists of two different sections: quantitative reasoning and mathematics achievement. I'd love to go through practice tests and share test-taking strategies with students to help them achieve high scores.

Pharmacology

I took many pharmacy-related courses and have solid and extensive knowledge in pharmacology. I have also successfully passed the pharmacy technician certification exam with top scores and obtained the certificate as evidence of certification. I worked as a board-certified pharmacy technician on a part-time basis for many years. I am confident of my ability to help anyone who wants to gain entry into this field.

My years of teaching experience has equipped me with the skills needed to help you improve your understanding in this subject and get you well-prepared for future studies.

Probability

Life is full of uncertainties and unpredictable events. Knowing the probability of occurrence of certain events can greatly enhance our ability to make logical decisions and dramatically improve the quality of our lives. I have a lot of experience tutoring this subject, and my well-developed teaching methods will help you delve into this interesting subject easily and tackle each problem with more confidence.
