Having the educational background as a Bioengineer at Lehigh University, I am trained to think diversely and work on the spot. I believe that the ability to use different ways to teach is essential to successful tutoring sessions, because everyone thinks differently. It is not always that the material in class is too hard, but the way it is presented is difficult to comprehend.
I was raised in Taiwan for the first 14 years of my life, so I went through the public school system and am fluent in Chinese. I have been a teaching apprentice for some of the Chinese classes at Lehigh University. Part of my experience includes grading assignments, practicing conversational skills with the students, and help them with any questions they have. Therefore, I am not new to helping people with the subject of Chinese.
Having went through a college prep school in Washington state, I was exposed to both ACT and SAT and therefore familiar with both standardized exams. I also took SAT prep class and was able to get a 1900 with a 780 on the math section, along with 800 on the SAT II math. I started the after school math tutoring center for my high school, so I am enthusiastic about trying to help people understand math and not give up because it seems too frustrating. There is always a way. Sometimes you just gotta present the material in a slightly different way in order for that light bulb to go off.
