I was a college teacher 20 years ago. Then I was a research engineer in a hospital, and now a researcher in a university. Now I am also a part time tutor.

I was very well trained in math up to graduate school level. I can instantly picture the best solutions to almost all questions of the math part of standardized tests, like SAT, ACT, GRE, etc. Being a PhD. in Electrical and Computer Engineering, I am also proficient in physics, electrical circuit analysis, control theory, medical image processing, etc.

I am patient and detail-oriented. I believe all students are different. They all have their strength and weakness. It's the tutor's responsibility to identify the students' weakness and to make the weak links strong. On the other hand, we have to realize that achievement takes practice and time. So we have to be patient when progress is in process. I believe details make the difference. A small mistake in the solution process can lead to a totally different answer, especially in standardized tests, where you don't get partial credits. Hence it's important to pay attention to every small detail and make sure each step is correct.

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

Mandarin is my native language.
I got a high score on Chinese language on the national college entrance exam.

Computer Science

I took 10 graduate college level computer science courses and I got a GPA of 4.0/4.0. I didn't apply for a computer science master's degree because I was working on a computer engineering Ph.D. degree, which I have now.

Discrete Math

I taught discrete math in college.

Electrical Engineering

I have a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from the University of Iowa, majoring in medical image processing.

Linear Algebra

I took several linear algebra courses in college and graduate college. This was my best subject back in college. In addition, I was a college teacher and linear algebra was one of the subjects that I taught.
