I have tutored many types of students - those seek more in-depth and more advanced topics on the subjects, and those who seek extra help so that they can restore their confidence in the subjects. My experience shows employing entirely different tutoring strategies work most effectively for different needs. For those needing to regain their confidence levels, I tend to find out what exactly weaknesses are first, And then help students fully understand both the concepts and techniques required by mental visualization so that they can catch up and achieve their goals in the least amount of time possible.

Adobe InDesign

For last 14 years, I have been using Adobe InDesign to put together marketing booklets, wedding albums, books, and ebooks. I am very knowledgeable, proficient in InDesign, and I use the current version CS6 in my workflow weekly.

Adobe Photoshop

I have an in-depth knowledge on all versions of Photoshop.

Algebra 1

Algebra is a fascinating math topic that came to us from the Arabic word. Many students of mine love the way I am teaching Algebra. I will teach you all the simple logic behind the topic and get you up to speed on Algebra very quickly.

Chinese

As a native Chinese, I received my first bachelor's degree in Chinese Literature at a Chinese nationally accredited university. I can teach speaking, reading and writing Mandarin Chinese.

Elementary Math

I not only teach the required math and arithmetic techniques, but also the math concept and logic behind those techniques to build a solid math foundation for future math studies. My own data have shown my approach shortens the required tutoring time almost by 30% to 50%. As the result, my students demonstrate complete confidence in elementary math.

Geometry

Different from most other teachers and tutors, I not only teach the required math techniques, but also the concept and logic behind those techniques by helping students to master Geometry using their own visualization process. My own data have shown my approach shortens the required tutoring time almost by 30% to 50%. As the result, my students gain complete confidence in Geometry and excel in standardized exams, such as SAT, GMAT and GRE.

Photography

I have been a freelance professional photographer since 2000, and only recently retired from the career. Over the years, I have been shooting almost all genres, including portraiture, advertising, products, macros, events, weddings, and fine arts. My images have been used all over the world in advertising, print publications, billboards, and web sites. I feel I am very competent in all general areas of photography, including in-depth knowledge on using strobes and other artificial lighting tools.

Prealgebra

In addition to learning rules and formulas, I teach my students to develop a solid understanding of basic algebra. My students are taught how to apply algebraic functions to create mathematical models of real-world scenarios. The students see their grades improved in less than 8 weeks.
