About Yanshao

Hi, my name is Yan. I'm a full-time math & Chinese tutor.

I'm patient and good at explaining in ways that suits the student's style of understanding. I'm passionate about what I do and in my heart's heart, I believe everyone can thrive in math if given the right guidance and everyone can learn to speak Chinese despite it being conceived as a difficult language.


For math:
1. I have a Bachelor's in Math and have had 16 years of experience working with students from high school and college as well as adult learners, in one-on-one, small groups and medium classroom settings.
2. I am familiar with the methods common core uses and also WHAT MAKES ME STAND OUT IS THE SIMPLE AND EFFECTIVE WAYS (CALL THEM TRICKS IF YOU MAY) TO SOLVE THE PROBLEMS THAT ALWAYS MADE MY STUDENTS' WONDER WHY THEIR SCHOOL DIDN'T TEACH THEM IN THAT WAY.
3. Subjects I tutor in:
Algebra 1 & 2, pre-calculus. College-level math: from basic math to pre-calculus.
Test prep: Math in SAT/SAT Subject I & II/GED, placement and assessment tests.

What to expect from my math sessions:
Besides the familiarity I have with the materials from the 16 years of tutoring experience, I always ask for a copy of the specific materials (lectures, notes and homework) that we need for a particular session from the students beforehand and I thoroughly preview before I get to a session. I always tailor the sessions according to the student's specific needs, usually combining explanations of the concepts and supervised exercises together.I make sure the goals for the sessions are accomplished.

For students who have anxiety or who don't have confidence when it comes to math:
I'll show the students how to dissect a math problem and solve it step by step. Once the student sees how it's manageable with each simple step, he or she will gain confidence in their math skills and therefore reducing their anxiety around math.


For Chinese:
1. I'm a native speaker and have had 16 years of experience of teaching/tutoring Chinese from young children to adults one-on-one and in small classroom settings.
2. Subjects I cover:
Young children (3-5) beginner, all age groups from 6 to adult, beginner & intermediate.
Test Prep: HSK, SAT Chinese, AP Chinese.
Business, travel, conversational, culture.
Pinyin, Grammar, Listening, Writing, Reading, Typing.
Simplified & Traditional.

What to expect from my Chinese sessions:
I cater my classes to the students' specific needs. With young kids, I utilize Chinese songs, games, apps to keep students engaged. With older students and adult learners, I explain things more logically, giving the roots of how words and sentence structures have come about. I always include culture tidbits in the lessons as understanding the culture is an essential part of understanding the language and vice versa.

I also work with students for test preps in HSK, SAT Chinese and AP Chinese.

And I emphasize on drilling students to have correct pronunciations from the beginning and on developing their abilities to make sentences on their own by utilizing the material taught in the lessons right away.


If I sound like a good match to you and your children, please don't hesitate to send me a message today and let the improvements on your grades and confidence grow today!

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

Algebra 1 is one of the most common subjects I have come across with my students. I have a lot of experience with this subject and have helped many students get better grades.

Algebra 2

Algebra 2 is one of the most common subjects I have tutored in. I have helped many students improve their grades in these classes and do better on their college assessment/placement tests.

Chinese

I'm a Native speaker. I had education in China up to high school graduation. I also work as a English-Chinese interpreter in a college program.
I have had Chinese tutoring experience for 15 years. I first started working as a Teaching Assistant in Mandarin at the foreign language department in SUNY-College at Oneonta while I was an undergraduate student there.

SAT Math

I have worked with students preparing for their SAT math tests and I'm familiar with the 2016 edition and SAT test-taking strategies.
