I was an associate professor who taught physics at a university for eight years in China before I came to the United States. I had done research related to Physics at Clemson University and University of Florida for eight years. I found my passion to be a teacher or tutor again when I moved to Boston In 2011.

I have a teacher certificate as a physics teacher for teaching at University in China. I used to lecture over 100 students. I taught calculus-based college physics in China. Physics concepts may be difficult to understand for some of students especially for who is new to this subject. I like one-on-one tutoring, because I can quickly find each individual student's strength and weakness, then I can help them better understand concepts and master problem solving strategy. I'd love to see students' faces lighten up after my explanations clear all the confusion and questions they may have. I'd love to see students gaining confidence in solving problems.

I had chances to reinforce my math skills while I have done research all these years. I have very strong mathematical skills. I could help you get better at understanding the basics of mathematics and gaining confidence in solving problem.

I am a native Chinese speaker. Chinese Language was always one of my strong subjects in high school while I was in China. I have a lot of experience teaching Chinese to kids who are bilingual learners. I had also taught after school Chinese class to small group of students in an elementary School. I had tutored Chinese to students aged 4 to 16 years old. I collected a lot of Chinese children's songs, stories and Chinese cartoons which make for good supplemental materials for Chinese learning. You will have the opportunity to choose the method your feel comfortable with: either conversation of daily life or a fun learning process with songs, games and stories.

Algebra 2

Algebra 2 including factoring, finding roots, solving sets of equations, exponential functions, polynomials, quadratic functions and rational expression etc.

I can help you understand concepts well and improve problem solving skills. Problem solving is kind of like finding the missing puzzle. First you have to break down the problem. Then list all the information you know and use variables for unknown information. Then you find the connection between those information to form one or more equations. At last You got the answer after solving equations.

I've worked with students taking Algebra 2 at Winchester High School and Medford High School.
