From the Fall of 2011 to the spring of 2013 I was working as a teacher in China teaching English and the Sciences. It was a great experience where I was able to help children overcome their difficulties with learning a new language or new scientific concepts. It was a pleasure to see my students grasps certain concepts after initially struggling with them. The time I spent teaching kids of all different ages and backgrounds helped shape my teaching style and also helped me to better understand my students.
My goal as a tutor is to help students understand and enjoy the subjects they are struggling in. By making concepts easier to understand I believe will be more self sufficient in the future and will learn how to grasp other concepts in the classroom and hopefully not even need a tutor. As a teacher, I like working with a single student or small groups because I get to know the strengths and weaknesses of each individual in order to tailor a better teaching regimen to suit their needs. Each child's method of learning and retaining information is different so I have to make sure I do not just teach in a generic manner since what works for one student may not work for another.
I am a Chinese American who just spent two years in China studying and utilizing the Chinese language. In China I used Chinese to help my students who were learning English. In college I also took many relevant courses in Chinese which adds up to a total of 3 years of study. I believe Chinese is the next global language and people who study it today will have a great advantage in the future in whatever they want to pursue.
I have studied genetics for a number of years in school. This includes my AP Biology classes in high school the many courses required for my bachelor's of biology from Tufts University. In the past, I taught a IB biology class which devotes a good part of the course to genetics and related concepts.
