Hi everyone!

I am a college student at Rutgers University in New Brunswick. I am majoring in physics and geological science.

I have been tutoring for over a year now. My strategy towards each subject is different. For math and Chinese, I believe in practice. (I am fluent in Chinese). For science students, I teach by explaining to them the concept and theories and everyday uses and then have them practice.

Feel free to contact me; I am always willing to help!

Thanks for looking!

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 was born and raised and went to school in China. I speak it everyday in my household and with my other Chinese friends. I have tutored Chinese at other places before and the students all liked me and the way I teach a lot.
Thank you.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have tutored kids k-6th for my friends' siblings. I interact with kids on a daily basis so I am very comfortable around kids. I have helped kids in this category and they loved it; they improved a lot on the subjects and I was very happy to see the results. I have different approaches with different subjects. For math and science, I explain to them the theories and its everyday uses. For humanities courses, I practice problems with the kids so they become more and more familiar with them. I believe that I am very good at this subject. To me, this is a time when the kids are just getting to know what they like and what they don't like as subjects. To me, this is a special time and I treat it very carefully. I encourage my students to continue to like the subjects they already like. As for the subjects they don't like, I try to teach it to them differently and engages more of hands on activities.

ESL/ESOL

I myself had once been an ESL student. I came over to America when I was 8 years old and took ESL lessons up until I was 12 years old. I know what to teach and what is the best way to teach an ESL student. I have taught it before to one of my students and she went from know very, very little English to speaking, reading and writing perfectly. I know what it is like to not know any English and where to start learning English.

Thank you
