I have a master's degree in science and have been involved in teaching and tutoring in math and engineering for Eighteen years both in China and the United States. Recently I taught 8th grade Math, Pre-Algebra, and Algebra 1 for 3 years in Texas public school. I am flexible, encouraging and patient with reputations for providing support for students who are struggling with mathematical concepts and quickly diagnose and develop strategies to fill the gaps with appropriate materials, also I am a very creative and talented instructor skilled at developing a thought provoking and exciting learning strategies.

I want to help students explore the fascinating math world and help their mind reason and organize complicated situations or problems into clear simple and logical steps. With the enhancement of reasoning and logical thinking, I shall help students prepare for more advanced college Math courses. I am specialized in tutoring students for grade-level math, Algebra 1 and 2, geometry, PSAT, SAT, ACT, SAT MATH LEVEL 1&2, Pre-AP Calculus\AP-Calculus and Physics.
