About Shanshan

I started to work as a part time math tutor ten years ago, when I was in college. I love teaching math, especially work one-on-one with students, which is more efficient and personalized.

My solid background in math makes me eligible to teach all levels of math subjects (pre-algebra, algebra 1, algebra 2, geometry, trigonometry, precalculus). I also help the students prepare for the math tests, such as SAT and ACT. All my students show great improvements after 2 or 3 sections with me.

I wish to share all my skills and experiences with the students, who are struggling with math learning. It is a great pleasure for me to see the students improving and gaining confidence in Math.
