About Yilan

I like working with people and talking to them about school work. It makes me happy to be able to help someone academically and see their improvements. I have a lot of patience and try different ways to explain confusing concepts. I hope you'll find this tutoring helpful! I'm tutoring at my university and was the tutor of the month at the UAB University Vulcan Materials Academic Success Center. I am certified at College Reading and Learning Association as a Level 1 International Tutor, which means that I know the different way of learning and how to respond to tutees in difficult learning situations. I'm especially good at biology and chemistry, and I got the Outstanding General Chemistry Award at my university! I hope you feel good about choosing me as your tutor, and if you have any questions, feel free to contact me on Wyzant.

I made high A's on both biology and chemistry courses at my university. I scored in the 97% nation wide on ACS Chemistry Test. I also got the Outstanding General Chemistry Award, which means I was top 1-2% in chemistry for those semesters in college. I've took IB Chemistry and AP Biology in high school as well, so I know these two subjects very well.

I scored 35 on ACT English, and I have lots of tips on how to do well on these sections!

I've played the piano for over 10 years and won the AMTA state competitions few years. I'm not planning on charging lots of money for piano lessons. I'm thinking about $30, and it's pretty negotiable depending on where you are in your piano skills.

Feel free to contact me to learn more and schedule lessons! I'm free EXCEPT for Tuesdays and Thursday from 9am-4pm.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

Biology

I tutor college students in introductory biology courses for Pre-Med at the university academic success center, so I am very familiar with all the topics in biology. I've scored really high on all biology exams. I am good at explaining biology concepts in multiple ways.

Chemistry

I tutor general chemistry at my university's academic success center. I have tutored many college students of all levels. I took IB chemistry in high school, which was two years, and I took honors general chemistry in college, so I have confidence in my knowledge in chemistry. I also received the Outstanding Chemistry Award, which is given to students who scored in the top 1% each year.
