I hold a B.A. in molecular and cell biology from University of California at Berkeley and a B.S. in health Science from University of the Sciences in Philadelphia. I love teaching and enjoy working with students of all ages. I served as a teacher's assistant in my math, English and Chinese classes since I excelled in those classes during middle and high school. I have taught my younger sister piano and my friends' kids Mandarin and math. For the past several years of working as a professional tutor, I have tutored students of all ages and backgrounds in all levels of math (from elementary math to calculus), high school and college level statistics/biostatistics, and Mandarin Chinese. One of my recent assignments was tutoring a 14-year-old girl Mandarin. I reviewed previously-learned words with her and also introduced Chinese grammar, basic sentence structures and new words. I created easy-to-read handouts, systematic charts, fun exercises and challenging quizzes to help her learn. It was a very fun and rewarding experience. Growing up in Taiwan, I speak and write fluent Mandarin Chinese. My strengths and specialties also include standardized test preparation in the math section of the SSAT ISEE, ACT, SAT, GRE, CHSPE, ASVAB as well as AP calculus, AP statistics, AP Chinese, etc. I have gained proven success in all the areas I tutored and I'm very happy with the results I have attained. I am dedicated to helping students improve their school performance and achieve their academic goals.
Since my objective is to help students succeed, I strive to be not only a homework helper but a great teacher/leader/mentor transforming students' academic lives. I believe there is so much I can learn from each student how to make a significant difference in their learning process, and I aspire to uncover students' hidden potential and help them eventually become independent thinkers. Please let me know if I have the chance to get to know you and bring out the best of you!

Knowledgeable, Patient, Clear Communicator
Tina helped my daughter prepare for her Algebra 2 mid term exam. Before the lesson, my daughter was very negative towards herself and math. Saying things like how stupid she is, I don't understand what's going on, etc. After the lesson, my daughter was pumped...I'm going to ace this test. Tina explained concepts to her where my daughter had continuous "aha" moments. It was wonderful as a parent to see your child want to do well, and know they can do well. I can't thank Tina enough. Hope to have more tutoring from her in the future.Kristin, 10 lessons with Tina
Knowledgeable and Patient Tutor
Tina is an incredible tutor. My son easily picked up her teaching methods/techniques to where he has gained the confidence to complete work that his teacher hasn't even gone over. She is extremely intelligent, knowledgeable, patient and understandable. We couldn't be more pleased. We would recommend her to everyone.Lorena, 24 lessons with Tina
