I am a PhD student in environmental economics at Duke University with extensive tutoring and teaching experience. As an undergraduate studying economics and math, I tutored local high school students in math, social studies, and SAT prep. I also helped tutor athletes at George Washington University in a wide range of subjects. As a graduate student, I have tutoring experience in economics, statistics, STATA programming, and GRE prep. I also have extensive teaching assistant experience in a range of economics topics. I was selected as the best teaching assistant of the year in my master's program. Furthermore, I received excellent teaching evaluations in an undergraduate course in Public Economics at Duke University. I mostly tutor undergraduate and graduate students, but also can meet with high school students in SAT prep, ACT prep, AP Calculus, AP Economics, or AP Statistics.

I love teaching and working with students, and believe strongly in teacher and tutor preparation. Before each tutoring session, I ask students to provide me with a list of topics and/or specific problems they want to discuss, and come to each session prepared to provide helpful feedback.

I am currently only available to tutor in Durham and Chapel Hill.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Chinese

I grew up in Southeast Asia, where I first learned Chinese. I also worked in Taiwan for two years after graduation where I primarily used Chinese. I also worked as a translator for translation of Chinese academic documents at Wallace Translation for a year.
