About Debbie

I graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Public Health from UC Irvine. Since I was on the pre-med track, my course concentrations were also on advanced Biology, Chemistry, Math, and Physics. I have personally taken and scored well on the MCAT and GRE, so I am also very familiar with testing strategies and materials.

MCAT and GRE cover subjects such as college level Biology, Chemistry, Biochemistry, Psychology, Reading Comprehension, Algebra I & II, and writing. As for my Chinese proficiency, I spent part of my life living in Taiwan and attending local schools. I am fluent both in speaking and writing. I have passed both AP Chinese test and UC Irvine's Chinese placement test to fulfill the University's foreign language requirement and upper-division Chinese courses.

During my undergraduate years, I have peer-tutored fellow students in Biology and Chemistry in either a 2-4 small group or one-on-one setting. I also tutored 9-10th grade high school students for math subjects covering materials from Algebra I to Algebra II. I acquired additional teaching experiences at Carver's Elementary School for Jumpstart AmeriCorps during my undergraduate years, where I worked directly with 20 pre-school students in a classroom setting to provide them quality lessons, ensuring their kindergarten readiness.

From all my tutoring and teaching experiences, I obtained valuable abilities to not only comprehend, but perceptively unravel topic areas or problems that students' may feel puzzled toward. I use lesson plans in which I adjust based on the student’s progress. I target different topics based on the student’s personal strengths and weaknesses. Most importantly, I understand the significance of allowing the students to stay interested in the subjects that they're learning, and easing their frustration when they feel like they're struggling with the materials.

I want to benefit students in their studies, and hopefully play a driving part in their pursue of academic success. I am very and patient and understanding. Four years at UC Irvine has also given me extensive experiences in doing research in Biology, volunteer, and various extracurricular work.

These are all the experiences I am able to share with students if they wish to learn more about their future plans in higher education. I am very easy to reach and will always provide fast responses. Please feel free to contact me for any questions you may have or to schedule a lesson!
