About Celine

I have a passion for teaching mathematics, science and music. I believe that each student learns differently, thus I provide each student with customized instruction to tailor individual's needs . I am a disciplinarian and hold my students to high academic standards. I can diagnose students' learning gaps accurately, and help them close these gaps quickly. Finally, I teach students both real life application and theoretical knowledge on the subject matter.

A bit on my background: I had my K-12 education in mainland China. After I moved to Los Angeles with my parents, I earned my Bachelor degree in Biology and minored in music. To further my music training, I earned a Master in Piano Performance along with teaching credentials in high school level math and science. Since 2002, I have been tutoring all levels in math and science as well as piano. Currently, I am a full-time math and science teacher in a local high school. I enjoy outdoor activities, cooking and traveling.

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.

ASVAB

Personally, I took the ASVAB myself when I was a freshman at college and got 95 without studying the test. In the past, I tutored my students ASAB especially in math portion during after school hours. I am patient, friendly and straight forward. I am confident that I am able to help students prepare for their ASVAB test in a short amount time. I believe knowing the test structure, standards and focusing on working on building strengths of a student for ASVAB is the key to succeed. I tutor online as well as in person.

ESL/ESOL

I have been tutoring ESL students since 2002. I am knowledgeable in ESL curriculum in grammar, speaking and writing. I also have extensive knowledge in cultural studies and communication skills because of my self-interest and college GE requirement. Most of my ESL students I have now are new comers who need to pass TOEFL or ESL (level 1 to level 6) in order to be eligible to take college courses. I also have young non-English speaking students who need to improve their English skills in order to make progress in their k-12 education.

By doing so, students not only effectively learn the concepts but also the SAT type of questions and test taking strategies in a short period of time (usually less than a month). Eventually, students are able to independently tackle SAT math problems with high level of confidence and accuracy.
