Bible Studies

I am a devoted Evangelical Christian for many years. I study the Bible for many years and frequently. I teach Sunday School for many years in both English and Chinese. I am familiar with church dogmatic teaching of Christian principles.

Chemical Engineering

I have twelve years of research and literature review related to chemical process and chemistry industry. I have knowledge of process improvement for synthesis, process scale up from milligram scale to kilogram scale. Also familiar with synthetic process development and improvement for making pharmaceuticals and biological active molecules in a multi-step process.

Chemistry

I received my PhD in Chemistry back in 1993. For the last few years, I taught chemistry and other science subjects at HS level in urban districts. I am familiar with many curricula and their different approaches to instruction and learning, and many chemistry lab techniques. I have extensive knowledge in chemistry from HS to graduate level.

Chinese

I am a native of Hong Kong. I lived there until I finished my undergraduate and master's degree. I was trained in classic Chinese and live in it all my life. I speak fluent Mandarin and Cantonese. I use many romanization methods; pinyin, Jyutping, Cantonese, strokes... to write Chinese in electronic devices to communicate, teach and work. I have taught Mandarin occasionally before. I have many years' experience of Chinese-English translation and Interpretation.

ISEE

I have taught both of my children for the ISEE and they had done well.
I have worked with children in Boston Public Schools taking the ISEE and their results are mostly satisfactory.
As a HS teacher for four years and PhD level of education, ISEE is a task relatively easy and I will be able to help students to master it.

Linear Algebra

I learned Linear Algebra in the context of high school math class. In college and graduate school linear algebra was used for many of my classes.

I have tutor many math students on this subject in the last three years.

Logic

I studied logic during my high school math course. I learned Boolean Algebra and Transistor Gate Logic and Integrate Circuit in college subject study. I am familiar with high school math common course standard regarding logic and sets. I have worked with high school students on their logic home work.

MCAT

I have earned my PhD degree from the Physical Science Division of the University of Chicago. Over thirteen years of practicing scientific research in chemistry and related subjects. I have help a lot of students in their studies of science at the pre-college and undergraduate level. As a strong exam taker myself, I help my tutoring students to employ many skills and strategies when they are taking important test, preparing for college and graduate studies.

Organic Chemistry

I have a B.Sc., M.Phil., and PhD in Organic Chemistry. I have more than ten years' experience of organic synthesis and instrument techniques. I employed various types of synthetic methods. I have developed teaching labs for chemistry major students.
