"Mathematics" is an abstract subject that hardly signifies its importance in sciences. Moreover, math tutors with only mathematics degrees cannot always demonstrate the subject's applications in many scientific fields. My target is to approach mathematics with an individualized and interdisciplinary way for each student, with a focus on their individual goals. In addition to my undergraduate education in pure physics, I have also studied medical physics, which primarily deals with the effects of radiation on humans with mathematical and physical modelings. Having personally interacted with medical school students and graduates during the time I studied medical physics, I believe my firm grasp of math and physics can provide valuable help for those students who look forward to getting into the field of medicine with frustrations in deciphering mathematics required to understand clinical studies data.
In addition to receiving education in the US, I have also gone to schools in China (1st-4th grades) and Japan (5th-8th grades), before coming to the US at 9th grade. From my personal experience, I understand the frustration of knowing the material of math and science classes but not having the specific vocabulary needed to make arguments in such classes. For those students who are new to the US school system, I can provide important assistance in getting used to the English vocabulary required for math and science classes, which is often not taught in ordinary English classes in China and Japan.
Finally, I look forward to meeting students with interests in various scientific fields. Sciences have become more interdisciplinary than ever and being taught by people understanding one specific subject often does not adequately accommodate the needs of students who study cutting edge interdisciplinary fields on the frontier of scientific advancements.
