I am a patient understanding tutor who seeks to help students reach their full potential. Whether it is helping students improve their Chinese skills or creating math processes to help students solve tough math concepts, I seek to enthusiastically tutor my students to reach their goals.

As a Chinese tutor, I aim to help my students learn a very useful and interesting language. I am a native born Chinese speaker who has been in the States for over forty years. I am interested in sharing my culture and my language with potential students. I am capable of teaching all levels of Chinese. I can improve speaking, writing and reading skills. I can also teach students Chinese even if they have no experience.

Graduating with a Master's in Engineering and working as a computer programmer for 24 years has given me extensive experience working through and solving logic and math problems. I also have extensive experience helping my children work through their math struggles. I look forward to helping student's understand concepts they might be struggling with.

Feel free to ask me any questions and I look forward to hearing from you!
