Only one tutoring session will make you feel different about yourself. As a certified high school math and Mandarin teacher, I am proficient in all middle school and high school math subjects. I'm helping students prepare for standardized tests, such as Regents, SAT, ACT and AP. Some of the students I tutored got perfect scores in these tests.
I have taught full-time in public schools for 7 years and am currently teaching an SAT math course in Westchester Community College on Sunday. Many of my past students were delighted by my teachings because "Ms. Y can make difficult math concepts easy to understand."

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.

ACT Math

Understanding concepts is extremely important for students to do standardized test, where lots of questions in ACT are related to more than 1 concept. My teaching focus is making students understand concepts in a lucid manner.

I can help students improve ACT scores with my conceptual and systematic approach or ongoing problem oriented assistance.

Algebra 1

Understanding concepts is extremely important for students to learn well. My goal is to review Algebra 1 concepts such as: number systems, variables, expressions vs equations, polynomials and factoring, linear equations and inequalities, system/quadratic/radical/rational equations, functions and graphing analysis, trigonometric ratios, probability, and statistics.

The above seemingly independent subtopics have many intrinsic relationships. With my many years of experience, I know exactly where typical difficulties are and have developed ways to help student connect missing dots and master all the subtopics.

I can help students with my conceptual and systematic approach and with ongoing problem-oriented assistance. The tutoring sessions can be conducted online or offline. Please let me know your preference.

Algebra 2

Understanding concepts is extremely important for students to learn well. Although Algebra2 & Trigonometry is a heavily packed course with about 80 subtopics, these seemingly independent subtopics have many intrinsic relationships. With my many years of experience, I know exactly where typical difficulties are and have developed ways to help student connect missing dots and master all the subtopics.

The Algebra2 & Trigonometry includes:
• Equations and Inequalities
• Function identification, transformation and variation
• Quadratic functions and equations (with complex numbers as roots)
• Methods of solving quadratic equations: factoring, complete square, quadratic formula
• Quadratic/Absolute value inequalities
• Polynomial functions and equations solving
• Radical functions and rational exponents
• Exponential and logarithmic functions
• Rational expressions and equations
• Sequence and Series
• Conic sections
Probability and statistics
• Trigonometric functions and graph analysis
• Trigonometric identities and equation solving

I can help students with my conceptual and systematic approach and with ongoing problem-oriented assistance. The tutoring sessions can be conducted online or offline. Please let me know your preference.

Chinese

Mandarin Chinese is my mother language. I have taught Chinese in the public school system for 3 years and am holding the New York State certificate. This course was well received and was enjoyed by my students since it was offered in school.

I speak non-regional, accent-free Chinese (like you hear on TV). I like to develop lessons in fun and practical ways that helps students to gain interest and master toning and pronunciation.

I can teach this subject in all levels. The tutoring sessions can be conducted online or offline. Please let me know your preference.

Geometry

I had a very strong training of Geometry when I was a kid and have strong passion in proving. Besides understanding geometric basic theorems, proving is the key to build students' logical thinking skills, which needs a lot of practice.

I can help students to reach this goal by providing a systematic approach and with ongoing problem-oriented assistance. The tutoring sessions can be conducted online or offline. Please let me know your preference.

Prealgebra

Understanding basic concepts of math is extremely important for students to learn advanced math topics in school. With my many years of experience to teach high level math courses in high school, I know exactly where the typical difficulties encountered by the students.

I can help students with my conceptual and systematic approach and with ongoing problem-oriented assistance. The tutoring sessions can be conducted online or offline. Please let me know your preference.

Precalculus

Understanding concepts is extremely important for students to learn well. Precalculus is a subject based on Algebra2 and Trigonometry with broader and deeper investigation on topics of:

Functions and graph analysis
• Polynomial and rational functions and graphs
• Exponential and logarithmic functions and graphs
• Trigonometric functions, graphs
• Analytic Trigonometry and vectors
• Linear systems and matrices
• Sequences, Series and Probability
• Conic sections and polar coordinates
• Limits and introduction of calculus

I can help students with my conceptual and systematic approach and with ongoing problem-oriented assistance. The tutoring sessions can be conducted online or offline. Please let me know your preference.

SAT Math

Understanding concepts is extremely important for students to do standardized test. Lots of questions in SAT are related to more than 1 concept or targeting common misunderstanding. With my 7 year full time teaching experience, I know exactly where the mistakes students usually make and have developed ways/tricks to build up their number sense.

I'm currently teaching a SAT course in a local school. One of the students I taught got perfect score in SAT II subject test.

Trigonometry

Understanding concepts is extremely important for students to learn well. With my many years of experience, I know exactly where typical difficulties are and have developed ways to help student connect missing dots and master all the subtopics.

The Trigonometry includes:
• Unit circle and angle measurements
• Trigonometric ratios, functions and graph of any angles
• Trigonometric equation and inverse trigonometry functions
• Analytic trigonometric formulas
Law of sine/cosine
• Vectors
• Complex number using trigonometric form

I can help students with my conceptual and systematic approach and with ongoing problem-oriented assistance. The tutoring sessions can be conducted online or offline. Please let me know your preference.
