Rutgers University, New Brunswick (Physics)
Columbia University, New York (Master's)
In the past year with WyzAnt tutoring, I've been primarily tutoring advanced math/physics classes such as Calc 1-4, Partial Differential Equation, Complex variable, Quantum Mechanics, Electromagnetism, Classical Mechanics, as well as AP and IB Math and Physics classes. Of course, I also provide service for high school level classes and regents exam preparation for math and physics.
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.

I took a demanding course that went through Calc 1, 2, 3, and linear algebra in one semester. I went through a number of tutors, most of whom were not able to keep up with the pace. Jing was different. He understood everything and explained it well. He was also very clear about what would show up in future courses and what wouldn't, which was extremely helpful.
Thanks Mike, for the compliments! I wish you the best success in the future and we will keep in touch should you have further questions!
Great guy. Very understanding patient and highly thorough. And at a great price!! Taught cal 1 like a pro. Highly recommend and easy to get along with
When I was taking my physical chemistry course I had strong doubts that I would do well. Jing helped me succeed beyond my expectations. Thanks to Jing, I had a very successful semester taking Quantum Mechanics at NYU. In addition to helping me work through some tight spots in the calculus, Jing also assisted me in learning to solve the relevant differential equations. We also worked together on plotting complicated wave functions using the Python language. Jing is very patient and diligent. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs assistance with math or physics.
I'm flattered to hear that, Chaim! I hope you will be successful on your MCAT and get into the med school you want to get in to.
Jing was always prepared for the tutoring session and made sure to attempt problems from the textbook for himself before attempting to explain them to me. He had access to any textbook that I was using and was very flexible when I was using more than one. Instead of fumbling around to find problems and their solutions, he came prepared and was able to quickly start.
Thanks for the compliment! I wish more people could be straightforward about what book they use and what class they are taking so I can do good jobs. Good luck on everything in the future and feel free to drop me quick questions.
Jing helped my son with Physics for Engineers 2 at a summer school class. He was easy to work with, smart, knew the material, and tailored his teaching to my son. I would definitely recommend him.
He is great tutor. He was able to show me how to do complex problems in simple ways. He's easy to understand and to talk too. He's nice about everything and really knows how to do math. Without him, I don't think I would be able to pass this calculus class. I recommend him to anyone needing help in calculus.
Jing was my tutor for General Physics 1. He is very knowledgeable and he explains very well. I am not good at science and I struggled with my Physics class until I met Jing. He understood my needs as a student and he took the time to explain the concepts and gave examples in order for me to understand the material. I was able to continue on my own and keep up with my studies very successfully after Jing's tutoring. He also helped me by sending me some of his books/notes. I am very pleased with Jing as my tutor and I am definitely recommending him.
Jing is a knowledgeable and reliable tutor. He knows his math and more importantly, knows how to teach it. He is punctual and very flexible with his schedule. I am very pleased with his services. My son needed help preparing for the Algebra / Trigonometry Regents and has improved greatly with just a few tutoring sessions. Before the sessions his practice scores were barely passing and afterwards they are high 90s. My son now feels confident that he is going to excel on test day.
Jing has been my tutor for the entire year in AP Calc AB. He's truly knowledgeable about the material. In addition, he studied physics in college so he was super useful when it comes to word problems related to applications of calculus to the real world. Thanks man!
Jing is great. He gets to the point and he is super patient and extremely knowledgeable. He is reliable and flexible with scheduling sessions. He shows you the most efficient way of solving a problem and doing well on the Regents. He will also keep in mind what student needs and wants from the session.
Thank you Estee! Your son is a very mature person for his age and I'm sure he is going to be a successful person in the future.
Jing is a fantastic tutor. He real knows how to translate the information in a way that I can understand. Moreso, he is very patient and intuitive towards my learning needs. He makes learning Calculus not seem so hard. I have improved drastically within the course and it is all thanks to his help! I'd definitely recommend that you use him!!!
We worked on Calculus BC. Jing is a very knowledgeable tutor. All in all, I improved but I wasn't able to reach my goal.
Hi Judy, thank you for writing this review for me. I know you had a tough year with all the SATs and college applications to deal with. But hopefully, we may be able to work on Calc BC again next year when your workload is lighter. Keep up the good work and good luck on future SATs and college applications!
Jing's teaching style was very personable and easy to understand. He was on time and very thorough in his preparation. He explained the conceptual aspects of physics as well as every step in problem solving. Jing shared his review notes with my daughter, who greatly appreciated receiving them. She is looking forward to future study sessions as she prepares for the Physics IB exam. Thank you, Jing!
Hi Lis, it's a pleasure to tutor your daughter. She really is a promising child and I hope I can influence her positively in both academic and personal ways.
Jing has been a very useful tutor in my collegiate studies. I used him to help me with my Physics 101 class, and even though my grades did not pick up as much as I had hoped, that was through no fault on him, but instead my own study skills. He is very open when you need him to be, and the more you use him, the more of a priority you are to him. I had regular study days with him each week, and even when things need to be changed, he was always able to find time to fit me into his schedule.
He is NOT the type of tutor for someone looking to just use him for quick answers. Jing will be able to pick up on if you really want to learn, or actually just want him to do your homework, and he will not continue your services if that is the case.
He has helped by going over problems, as well as helped me reached conclusions on my own, this way it sticks with me more than if he was to just tell me the answer. Also, if Jing has come to a problem that he can not work out correctly at first, he will work on the problem on his own time, free of charge, and either send you the solution, or go over it the next time you meet with him. He does this to not waste your time and money, so you can get as much out of one session as possible. Overall a very excellent tutor. *(Excuse any grammatical errors. I'm an Engineering major, not an English major!)
Thanks for the kind words! Physics should be demystified as you learn more about higher level math and physics. I personally suffered from similar confusions when I was a freshman in college taking physics 101.
Jing has been my tutor for more then two months. I struggled with quantum mechanics and math classes but since I met him, things are getting much better. He helped me also with Excel and Matlab.
It was a pleasure to have tutored you in those subjects, Arwa. Quantum mechanics have a bad reputation of being hard to understand and I am trying the best I can to make it a little easier.
I had a Calc 3 test in a couple of days and I was confused on many things. In just one hour Jing cleared up my confusion and reinforced what I did already know. I would definitely use his service again.
I am taking Electromagnetics Physics and Jing was the perfect tutor to help me with this course. He is patient and explains the difficult concepts in a way that I could understand it better. He is a great tutor, and I believe he can help anyone succeed!!!
What I really wanted you to learn is to think instead of plug and chug. You make me feel proud that you can comprehend such a difficult subject in a short period of time and relate the example we went over to real world situations.
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.
Before starting tutoring at WyzAnt, I used to tutor a student from LaGuardia High School privately for 3 weeks.
I have tutored the following subjects and sub-topics so far: AP Calculus AB (using the Rogawski textbook now but I personally used James Stewart book); Multivariable Calculus; Vector analysis including cross product, dot product, partial differentiation, multiple integrals, Lagrangian multipliers, and limits for 2 variables. For first semester college calculus, I have tutored limits, anti-derivatives, derivatives, tangent line, and implicit differentiation; and for second semester college calculus I have tutored infinite series (alternating, telescope, geometric and arithmetic series), radius of convergence, improper integrals, and sums of infinite series.
Help with MAPLE labs is also offered for those students who need it for Calc 3 or differential equations class.
Chinese is my native language, which I learned before I started schooling in China. However, ordinary Chinese lessons tend to overly emphasize day-to-day conversations over the importance of conversations in technical or business settings. Having come from a family of scientists in China, my technical vocabulary in Chinese can provide a rather unique assistance to people who work with Chinese-speaking people in business or technical settings.
At Rutgers University, I've taken Differential Equations classes intended for engineering students rather than pure math students. The engineering courses covered, solving PDE(partial differential equation) with Fourier Transform, ODE(ordinary equations) with LaPlace Transform, Method of Frobenius, Heat/Classical Wave Equation, Bessel Function, as well as solving system of differential equations using matrices. I also have experience in dealing with simple harmonic oscillator, motion with linear drag, biological modelling, Schroedinger equations, radiation-dose fractionation for radiation therapy modelling and many other applications.
As a person who learned English as second language myself, I have personal experience with overcoming the burdens as a native speaker of Chinese.
I aim to explain the grammatical differences in English and Chinese languages in simple and straightforward ways for fellow native speakers of Chinese.
In my undergraduate education at Rutgers University, I have taken a class on the subject with a final grade of A. Moreover, linear algebra is a tool I've always used in Classical Mechanics to find principle axis of rotation via finding eigenvectors. In differential equation, the subject is often used to solve systems of differential equations by finding eigenvalues and eigenvectors. As I have mentioned in my profile, my goal of tutoring is to approach mathematics from an applied perspective.
During college and graduate school, I've done many projects in science classes or liberal arts core classes with Word.
For those students who are new to word and have hard time with tedious functions of this software, I can help reduce frustration and facilitate the flow of work.
Sample work can be sent upon request.
For the subject of physics I am offering: Quantum mechanics including Time independent Schoedinger equations, infinite potential well, commutation, and hermiticity of operators; Electromagnetism including Electrostatics, electric potential, boundary conditions at interface of 2 dielectric material, Maxwell's equations, magnetostatics, induction, circuits (RC, RL, RCL), and derivation of radiation from accelerated charges; and Classical Mechanics including Newtonian laws, circular motion, Lagrangian operator, rigid body motion, principle axis of rotation, simple harmonic oscillator with damping, and parallel axis theorem. I have and continue to use David Griffiths' book to tutor both Quantum mechanics and Electromagnetism. I use Robert Taylor's book to tutor Classical Mechanics.
Experience with thermodynamic applications of probability theory such as, Boltzmann distribution, Bose-Einstein condensation, and concept of entropy. In graduate school training, I have experience with applications of probability theory in micro-dosimetry, radiation counter statistics, and radioactive decay.. Finally, I've also had experience in binomial, exponential, Gaussian, Poisson, and conditional probability distributions in a class with pure mathematical settings.
Prior to joining this website, I have tutored a high school student in NYC from LaGuardia High School in Integrated Algebra for about 2hrs/week for 3 weeks. I also have confidence in demonstrating competence in tutoring other math regents exams as well as Physics regents exam considering my background.
