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.


I am a native Mandarin speaker, experienced with teaching Chinese to adults and kids!


I have strong background in calculus, experienced in tutoring calculus I, II, III for college level. I have also tutoring high school students with AP calculus (AB and BC), pre-algebra and pre-calculus. I have comprehensive understanding of maths and ability to cover the topics in depth.

I could handle from basic level as Univariate summary statistics, linear regression, analysis of variance, nonlinear regression to advanced topics as bootstrapping (resampling), cluster and discriminant analysis, maximum-likelihood estimation, multilevel mixed models, multivariate methods, panel data, survey data, survival analysis and time series. I previously acted as a lab tutor to introductory econometrics and micro-econometrics classes using Wooldridge's textbook.
