About Jiang

I've worked as a tutor for over six years, both at the high school and collegiate level. While attending university, I was employed by a tutoring center in southern California, where I provided instruction to middle and high school students in Algebra I & II, Geometry, Trigonometry, Pre-Calculus, AP Calculus AB/BC and HSPT/ACT/SAT. In addition, I've also worked for the tutoring center at Santa Clara University for three terms, helping fellow undergrads with finite math and calculus.

My areas of expertise are in Algebra and SAT Math, as I personally wrote the Algebra I, II and SAT curricula for the tutoring company I work at. Every single one of my Algebra students have improved by at least one full letter grade, and my SAT students have all surpassed either their previous score, or their target score.

In addition to the above, I've:

-Ranked 99th percentile in SAT Math (perfect score)
-Ranked 99th percentile in SAT II Math Subject Tests (perfect scores)
-Ranked 98th percentile in ACT Math
-Completed Calculus I, II & III, Finite Math, and Statistics at Santa Clara University
-Taken and passed the CSET (California Subject Examination for Teachers) Multiple Subjects I, II & III with a perfect score across all Math sections

I communicate easily with any student, whether it be a review of math fundamentals or enrichment to stay ahead of the curve. Rates are 100% negotiable and there is no charge for a cancelled lesson. Supplemental material and homework can be provided for no extra charge upon request. My aim is to not only provide students and parents with the best bang for their buck, but with the best bang, period.

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've taken and passed the CBEST on August 22, 2012 with a perfect score of 80 on the Reading section, a Math score of 71 and Writing score of 63.
