I will help you master the key concepts of math while building a solid math foundation step by step. During my many years helping students from middle schools, high schools and colleges, I have seen that the difficulties students have often arise in their early steps of learning math. My approach is to teach you the current subject along with whatever you might have missed in past studies. I am patient in explaining. I also ask simple questions to ensure your full understanding of a particular subject. After all, it is my duty and joy to know that you have gained confidence in math.

I have enjoyed using mathematics as an essential tool while working as a chemical engineer for industry and while conducting biophysical research at the University of California. As a scientist, I used laser photolysis/time-resolved circular dichroism to study protein ligand binding and conformation changes. In these studies, mathematics is an indispensible tool to deconvolute and understand the experimental results. Math is also used to model and evaluate possible mechanisms of the reaction pathway.

Truly, math is the queen of the sciences as well as a necessity in everyday life. I would like to tutor students at any age and in subjects ranging from pure mathematics to practical applications in chemistry, physics and biology. In order to ensure that your tutoring is efficient and effective, please send me an email describing your specific needs in advance.

I also tutor Chinese, both in speaking and writing.

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.

Algebra 2

Since I have a Ph.D degree in science, the understanding of Algebra 2 is a required skill to have. I also applied this type math skill in various physical science research projects. That allowed me to be able to convey the math concepts to students as lively topics, other than simply formula fittings. I have tutored students in this subject. My tutoring in math has changed student's perspective of math being a boring subject to a enjoyable one.
