Beijing university, China (Physics)
University of Rochester, NY (PhD)
I am a patient and knowledgeable tutor in math and science with a PhD Degree in Physics from University of Rochester (NY) and a BS Degree from the top university in China.
I used to work as a "Rocket Scientist" in a prominent National Laboratory in US, and also used to work as an Algorithm Engineer in leading edge tech companies. I have been a tutor/instructor in math and science since 2008.
I enjoy working with kids, helping them become more interested and more confident in math and science. I am especially good at encouraging and helping high school girls who struggle with math/science.
The subjects I teach and tutor are:
AP Calculus AB & BC;
AP Physics; Physics;
SAT Subject Physics & Chemistry.
I also teach and tutor MCAT during the summer.
- Physics Olympiad for high school students. I am a patient and knowledgeable tutor in math and science with a PhD Degree in Physics from University of Rochester (NY) and a BS Degree from the top university in China.

Group rate: $30 - $40 depending on number of students. MCAT: $80 per session.
I have taken a few different physics courses and each time, I have hired a tutor. Eileen was by far the best that I have worked with. She understands any problem you throw at her, and does a great job of working through the material with you. I found her sessions to be more helpful than the 7 hours a week I spent in the classroom with my professor. Highly recommend.
My son appreciated how quickly Eileen got to know his abilities and was able to set up a schedule that optimizes his studies. We are so glad to be able to work with Eileen. She is always on time and ready to make the most of each session.
Eileen has be very helpful in getting my daughter to understand the extremely complicated subject of AP Physics. Eileen is really knowledgeable on all the subjects she offers. My daughter has been improving ever since Eileen's tutoring began. Eileen is very punctual and patient. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a great tutor.
Eileen provides invaluable feedback after each tutoring session so we know where our son stands on the covered subject. Our son has significantly improved in precalculus and physics since working with Eileen. For example, his class retook a precalulus exam because the majority of students failed (student or teacher problem?). Our son was one of those students. After working with Eillen, he scored with a "B" on the retake. He recently scored 100% on a quiz. Prior to this, he was failing the course.
We are grateful to have the opportunity to work with Eileen and highly recommend her.
Eileen is very detailed and genuinely dedicated tutor who works with my son to achieve his target. We had a diagnostic test on the first day. On the last day, session 8, my son improved his score by 80 points! Will certainly recommend Eileen to friends.
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.
I have a PhD in Particle Physics:-)
