About Alyss

I have been a self-employed tutor since the beginning of high school, and have been tutoring students on subjects ranging from math, science, to mandarin and SAT preparation. I have a strong passion for tutoring and explaining things in a simple way. With my four years of tutoring experience, I have the confidence of explaining complex concepts in a easy-to-grasp way.

About my qualifications: I have gotten straight A+s in all university and high school math and science subjects. I have taken all math courses ranging from algebra to geometry and calculus. I have been tutoring math and science since beginning of high school. As a native Mandarin speaker, I have a strong interest in Chinese literature, especially ancient prose, poems, and novels. Having achieved 2300+ in SAT and 113 in TOEFL, I have a lot of experience in how to get prepared for tests and how to deal with different type of problems.

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.

Chinese

I am a native Mandarin speaker who have grown up in China, and have received 18 years of Chinese training before coming to the US. Back in my Chinese school, I have been the top 2% in Chinese in my year, and have won various competitions in Chinese poems and Chinese writing. I also have a strong interest in Chinese literature, and love teaching Chinese with the stories behind the words and idioms. Therefore, I consider myself a good fit to become a Chinese tutor.
