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

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.

Algebra 1

I hold a California Single Subject Credential in Mathematics. I have been teaching high school level math classes including Algebra I, II, Geometry, Math Analysis and AP Calculus in 2011. Currently, I am teaching Geometry and Precalculus classes at my school. I am patient and detailed. I am especially good at helping struggling students improve their critical thinking and problem solving skills.

Biology

I'm currently teaching Biology in a local high school. I am experienced in tutoring high school and AP level Biology.

CBEST

I took CBEST and passed it with good scores especially in the math section. I am familiar with CBEST format and review tips. In addition, I am credentialed in math and science , and experienced in tutoring graduate students in this subject matter.

Chinese

I am bilingual in Mandarin and English. I have been tutoring in this subject since 2002. I'm experienced in tutoring Chinese speaking, listening, writing and reading. Because I'm also a professional high school teacher, I'm experienced in interacting and communicating with young students as well as adults. I welcome students of all levels and all levels.

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.

I have been teaching private piano lessons and group piano lessons for more than ten years. I have earned my master's degree in piano performance.
