I enjoy teaching. My love of teaching is a crucial factor in my choice of becoming a high school teacher, right after I received my BS degree about 25 years ago. I am a PhD scientist. I have taught many science and math courses at both high school and college levels. I believe that understanding basic concepts is a key to success in math and science, instead of simply memorizing them. Over the past two decades, I have had the pleasure of helping numerous students realize the importance of understanding basic concepts and shortly see their test scores and grades improve. It gets results!

I specialize on ACT, SAT, GRE, and GMAT math exams and in tutoring algebra, geometry, trigonometry, precalculus, statistics, biology, and environmental science for success in school. No matter what I work on, algebra or biology, I encourage students to develop critical thinking skills through asking them questions. Math and science, in general, are a process in which learning at a certain level rests on having learned all preceding levels. I help students review concepts at preceding levels and catch up on what they've missed.

I am also a part-time Chinese language teacher in the School District of Palm Beach County and have taught and tutored Mandarin Chinese in south Florida for years.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve success in your studies.

ACT Math

My methodology is that I first help students learn the essentials of what they need to improve grades and scores. I also foster an attitude of self-reliance and curiosity to pursue any goal they choose, and impart tools necessary to find their own answers.

Algebra 1

A grasp of algebra is the basis for higher-level math and science courses in high school, which can open doors later in life for a better future. My algebra tutoring strategy is to help students grasp each concept and build the confidence to solve problems independently.

Algebra 2

I first understand how students learn and then plan my tutoring sessions to their specific algebra needs. I also offer flexible scheduling options to meet students’ needs.

Biology

Biology is an interesting subject, but bio can be completely overwhelming—even for high school students or first-year undergrads. I have taught bio at both high school and college levels for years. I can help you with anything your bio teachers assign: homework questions, science projects, labs and lab reports, test prep, or reviewing tough concepts or entire chapters. When you're stuck on something like that, I am here for you.

Chinese

My first language is Chinese. I am currently a part-time Chinese teacher in the Palm Beach County School District. I have studied and worked in the United States for 15 years. I am a good communicator, and speak English fluently. I have effectively taught and tutored American people to learn Chinese/ Mandarin for years.

Geometry

My tutoring methods vary based on a student’s performance and skills. I usually break down problems with students, step by step, while I ask them questions about why I do it that way, to guide students toward discovering and truly understanding concepts, which helps with retention and effective problem-solving.

Precalculus

Precalculus includes algebra, coordinate geometry, trigonometry, and most of all, functions---the general concept as well as specific functions. Students come to this course familiar with basic algebra and geometry. A precalculus course builds on all of their previous mathematical knowledge and experience to understand calculus that is essential to succeed in a college. I have had great success teaching those concepts and functions.

SAT Math

My methodology is that I first help students learn the essentials of what they need to improve grades and scores. I also foster an attitude of self-reliance and curiosity to pursue any goal they choose, and impart tools necessary to find their own answers.

Statistics

Knowing statistical content is not enough to be a good statistics tutor. Statistical ideas and rules often are abstract and complex to understand. It is difficult to motivate students to engage in the hard work of learning statistics. Therefore, I believe that tutors not only need a good understanding of statistics, but they also need to have practical ways and skills to help students understand statistics and solve problems.

My approach is to pay attention to the role of using data and emphasizing concepts rather than computations, focusing more on applications and less on theory, and incorporating technology and active learning with data analysis. Technology includes statistical software to graph and analyze data to illustrate abstract ideas. I have more than 20 years of experience in applying statistics to hypothesis tests, sampling and experimental design, data analysis, and result presentation in many ecological research studies.

Trigonometry

Trigonometry is built on the principles of algebra and geometry. Mastery of trigonometry is essential for success in college-level courses such as calculus and physics. My tutoring goal is to help students understand trigonometry content and master core concepts like trigonometric functions and triangle theorems. I will provide personalized tutoring strategies for students to meet their specific needs.
