Having consistently scored well on standardized tests, I know the effective ways to tackle them in an efficient manner. I scored 2330 out of 2400 (percentile 99) on the SAT and 750 out of 800 (percentile 98) on the GMAT. The score breakdowns are as follows: SAT math 800, writing 780, verbal 750; GMAT 49, verbal 42, and writing 6.

I work full-time in Annapolis and am pursuing a Master of Science in Finance degree at Georgetown's McDonough School of Business part-time. I am also a Chartered Financial Analyst® (CFA) candidate. I am very much aware of the needs of students and young professionals like myself who are thinking about college or graduate school. Additionally, I can tutor Chinese as a native speaker who is proficient in both speaking and writing.

My tutoring style is focused on stimulating the students themselves to think critically how to best approach a certain type of problems. Rather than simply solving specific problems, I emphasize the importance of detecting patterns and effectively tackling problems of similar sorts. These skills are critically important for anyone who wishes to excel on a standardized test, as these exams do not test specific sets of knowledge in a field but rather a way to think.

At the George Washington University where I obtained my Bachelor's degree, I tutored individual students on a range of subjects including statistics and calculus. I also served as a professor's writing preceptor and helped students draft their academic papers. I taught Chinese as a volunteer instructor with the Global Languages Network. For my classes I independently devised curricula, syllabi, classroom materials, and homework. Although I no longer speak the language on a daily basis here in DC, I spent the first 18 years of my life living in China and maintain constant contact with the people and evolving culture there, in addition to physically visiting the country on a regular basis.

I can meet students in Annapolis on weeknights as well as in DC on weeknights and weekends. We could also meet virtually via Skype or Google Hangout if the student prefers.
