About Winnie

My name is Winnie, and I am a 4th year Biomedical Engineering major at University of California Irvine (UCI). I have been tutoring elementary to high school aged students for over 5 years now, having started a local tutoring referral service when I was in high school in Diamond Bar, California. I have also tutored and taught children Music Theory and Piano, having learned piano since the age of 4 and mastering the Advanced level at the age of 11. I find the process of tutoring and teaching to be extremely rewarding and enjoy using the opportunity to become a better student myself by teaching other students in their subjects. As they say, the best teacher is the best student.

As a Biomedical Engineering major, I have expertise in all levels of math (up to engineering level differential equations) and excel in introductory engineering level physics and mechanics (both statics and dynamics). I have been classically trained in grammar and literature as a child in English and Latin by a grammar tutor, and thus am comfortable with teaching writing, public speaking, reading, spelling, and vocabulary. In addition, I have taken (and would excel in teaching) the following AP classes: European History, English Language, Statistics, US History, Biology, English Literature, Economics, Calculus BC. In addition, having taken the most recent MCAT and have gotten a score at the 90th percentile, I am comfortable with tutoring and sharing exam tips for the MCAT.

Outside of tutoring, I work as a clinic manager for a free health clinic I helped found as the founding undergraduate president. I am an entrepreneur and a philanthropist, and devote most of my free time to health disparities of Orange County. I have been a part of two start ups, one of which, an online medical publishing group, I was an executive administrator. My goal is to attend a medical school to pursue a joint MD/MBA program and utilize my skills to help found more free health clinics across America.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have over 7 years of tutoring experience with elementary students and have volunteered as a teacher's aide at a local elementary school in Diamond Bar, CA. I can not only tutor students in their subjects but also work on study skills and homework help. I create individual lesson plans for elementary school students who need tutoring beyond homework help, which allows for an individualized education.

Piano

I have over 15 years of experience learning piano and have tutored and taught piano since the age of 14. I passed the advanced CM level at the age of 11 and have won countless of state and regional awards throughout high school. Now, I teach one young student fingering techniques through etudes and other fun age-appropriate songs. I continue to play and teach piano as a hobby.
