About Yu

I am a current college graduate with a B.S. in Chemical Biology from UC Berkeley. I have been tutoring organic chemistry and mathematics to college and high school students. My tutoring experience was wonderful. So I am looking forward to putting my knowledge and passion into aids for your success.

The manner I teach my students is very direct. I would drill right into problems with the student to find any conceptual gaps, and fill them quickly. So the students can understand the fundamentals of a concept and it applications in a short amount of time.

Math, Chemistry, and Physics are my favorite subjects in school, I got As on most of the related courses. To the ones who wishes to learn about religion and Bible, I am the right person for you. I have been influence by many philosophies through out the history, from B.C. 500-600, the theory from East and West. My faith and understanding in Christianity is influenced by Calvin, and would also be characterized by others as Reformed Theology. I would be happy to share with you about the Bible, and have Bible studies.

I do speak fluent English even though I am an immigrant to the U.S. from China at age of 16. This means I read, write, and speak fluent Chinese. I would be glad to teach you my primary language and help you to enjoy the Chinese culture and civilization.

A little more about myself, I am a very easy going, purpose driven, committed, organized person. Please feel free to contact me if you need any help, and we could be good friends even after getting done with our tutor-student relationship.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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

As a tutor with several years of experience teaching math and sciences, I am confident that my expertise in teaching this subject can be a great aid to your success.

Algebra 2

Algebra 2 is a very important foundation on the study of mathematics.

To practice on all different problems would be the best approach for a thorough understanding of this subject.

I will help you to go through the problems relating to every concept. Therefore, you may have a deep understanding of the concepts and their applications.

Bible Studies

I am not a very experienced bible teacher. Yet I have participated in many bible study fellowships and have lead a bible study through the grace of the Lord.

I have finished reading the entire bible and obtained an understanding of the complete salvation, truth of Trinity God, and many fundamental truth in Christian faith through Jesus Christ. Christians are freely given the life of Christ by God's Grace and Mercy. Without the filling of Holy Spirit, no one would be able to obtain the true knowledge of God. It is a matter of Life, to follow Jesus Christ, and be obedient to God through the Holy Spirit. It is about a person's Life, not just knowledge.

I hope I can be used to help other brothers and sisters to study the Word of the Lord.

Chemistry

I graduated from UC Berkeley with a B.S. in Chemical Biology. I am pretty confident in dealing with various chemistry concepts and problems.

As a tutor for several years, my experience in teaching chemistry will be a valuable part to fit in your success in this subject.

Chinese

I was raised in China and moved to the US when I was 16. Chinese is my native language, and I would be happy to help people practice verbal/written Mandarin communication.

Physics

I passed all my college physics classes with mostly A's.

Very pleased! — After only one session with Yu, my son earned his first B on a chemistry test, his highest quiz/test score to date. My son said Yu explained concepts even better than his teacher did. ...
