Hi, my name is Ping - a bilingual tutor (English/Chinese mandarin)
Being a private tutor requires many particular personal traits to provide well customized teaching service. I am convinced that I possess all those traits. I am an extremely responsible, detail-oriented and very organized person. Using interesting samples to demonstrate a difficult concept is my strength.
Math was always my best subject. I won the Bronze medal in the National Olympic Math Contest (primary section) in China. I taught my niece math and English by chance in the summer of 2004. What surprised me was she really made big progress. After that, my relatives started to ask me to teach their children. The outcome depended in part on the student's very basic math skills and effort. Basically, I am able to predict my teaching outcome through the first conversation with the student.
In February, 2011, I came to America to start my new life - having to attend an American college as a full-time student. During 2011 fall semester, I taught three students College Algebra. In 2012 Spring semester, I put so much effort to teach a woman who struggled with Algebra. I even spent two days tutoring her nonstop before her final, because it helped her pass her class!
Currently, my students are limited to my classmates who know my grades and trust me. However, my dream is to teach more broad math subjects by introducing the Chinese math learning methods, such as Multiplication Tables. I would like to teach the math concepts and skills rather than formulas. Remembering formulas might help you pass all tests, but it's not the best path to a high grade.
Besides math, I am also available in Chinese (Mandarin), MS-Excel, Finance Accounting.
