About Wen Li

I love to help students to learn math. Each student is different, so I often adjust my teaching method for each individual. I always try to stimulate my student’s interest in math learning. The interest mainly comes from having confidence in math, so my purpose is to build my students’ confidence in math.

I graduated from California State University with a single subject credential in mathematics. Over the past 20 years, I have tutored many students and have taught math at Jordan High School in Los Angeles. My tutoring encompasses all levels of math, from basic arithmetic, prealgebra, algebra 1, algebra 2, geometry, trigonometry, precalculus, and calculus.

Please send me an email through WyzAnt for any of your questions and concerns.

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.

Chinese

I am a native speaker of Mandarin with many years of teaching Chinese. I love the language and I can help you to learn it. I would happy to teach you anything you prefer from listening, speaking, reading, and writing.

Elementary Math

Besides helping middle school and high students with math, I have had years of experiences helping students from 3rd to 6th graders for their math study.

Each student improves their grades and doing well on the tests.

ESL/ESOL

Since I speak both Chinese and English, it benefits my students a lot when I help them in English. For example, they can use Chinese to ask me questions when they don’t know certain word in English or don’t know how to ask a question clearly in English.

In addition, I often add interesting things into my lessons. For example, I introduced my students the pop music in sixties, how composers and singers created songs which reflected American society and young people’s thoughts.

As an experienced teacher of ESL, I already have many years of experience helping Chinese students to learn English grammar and composition and I understand how to conduct an interesting and productive lesson.

Wonderful Tutor, Very helpful and patient! The best!

Wen is my tutor for my college Algebra class. She is an excellent tutor because she really knows her material and is very good at explaining every step. It is obvious math is second nature to her as she can easily recall all the necessary formulas and explain it in a simple way. Since I have been working with her my confidence in math has improved, as well as my grade. She is very, very patien
