I have a Bachelor Degree in Biology with music performance minor and a Master Degree in Piano Performance and Education. I hold a clear CA credential in mathematics, biology, chemistry, physics and music. I am bilingual in Mandarin and English.

I have been teaching in a local high school for 5 years and I haven been tutoring since 2002. I enjoy both classroom teaching and 1-on-1 tutoring because it always challenges me to try new ways of teaching and interacting with students who have different learning levels and academic backgrounds.

For the past 15 years, I have tutored many students from kindergarteners to college students for many subjects including Algebra, Geometry, Precalculus, AP Calculus, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Mandarin, ACT, SAT, ASVAB, MCAT, GRE, CBEST, etc. I helped many students pass their difficult final exams or classes, or get into their dream schools because of their competitive test scores or GPAs.

I believe every student has potential to reach their goals as long as they are willing to do their best with perseverance, self discipline and excellent guidance.

Knowing each student learns differently, I provide each student with customized instruction to tailor individual's needs . I am patient, friendly, detailed and structured. I also hold my students to high academic standards. I can diagnose students' learning gaps accurately, and help them close these gaps quickly with my customized lesson plans. I teach students both real life application and theoretical knowledge on the subject matter. I believe my role is to help students discover their strengths and weaknesses quickly so that they can focus on reaching their goals more efficiently and effectively.

In addition to academic tutoring, I also teach private music lessons in piano, violin and accordion for all levels and all ages.

Because I am highly technically proficient, I also offer online tutoring.

Whether you need a quick help to improve your test scores, or academic performance, or a long term help to set a solid foundation in mathematics and science, or just want to learn a new instrument for fun, you've found the right person! I welcome parents and students across America contact me for any inquires you might have. I'd love to get connected with you and help you achieve your learning goals.

Thank you for reading and I look forward to hearing from you soon!
