I tutor Mathematics and Mandarin Chinese. My students range from the Elementary to the Ph.D level.

Over the past ten years I have taught statistics/data analysis at college level, and tutored math with students from diverse backgrounds. Growing up in Beijing, China, I received rigorous mathematical training through college. I spent much of my time competing and preparing for extracurricular math competition through my academic years. My GRE score was 780 (top 3%) on the math portion. I enjoy standardized tests, I know how they work and I can teach you all my tricks.

The other part of my life has been dedicated to teaching Chinese. I have tutored teenagers and adults on Chinese language speaking, listening, reading and writing. I specialize in teaching pronunciation, vocabulary expansion, grammar, character recognition and writing, pinyin, dictionary usage, and culture understanding. I'm proficient in integrating video/audio materials, books, maps, cultural items, etc. to enhance students' learning efficiency.

I am a dedicated and patient teacher. I am creative and enthusiastic, and sensitive to students' individual needs. I am able to work with students from diverse backgrounds. I truly believe that my students' success is my success.

I have a Bachelor's of science degree in environmental science (minor: math), and a Ph.D in communication.
