About Ling

I've been tutoring students since 2008. I am very flexible in my approach to a student. I believe that everyone is capable to learn yet different people require different approaches. Discovering their learning style is as important as the information itself because I want to help the students become a better learner not just a better student.

I have been awarded the American Vision Award 2009 for Best in Show in Colorado Arts and Writing Scholastics Competition. I believe creativity is not only necessary for painting and drawing, but it is also crucial in academia. The key is to channel creativity into academia instead of it being a distraction.

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.

Great First Experience — Ling was responsive and provided exactly what my Freshman needed for his Honors Geometry exam. My son said that her ability to draw and show 3d shapes helped him conceptualize and understand geometry well. He feels prepared for his exam now! I will hire Ling again! ...
