Queens College, NY (Computer Science)
Dear Student and Parent,
As a teacher, I understand that a student can be distracted by many factors in the classroom. These distractions may include other students, other stimuli, whether audio or visual, or any mental or physical unpreparedness on the student's part at the time. All these factors combined can result in an undesirable learning environment for some students.
One-on-one tutoring eliminates many types of distractions. There is no wonder many of my students improve on their understanding of their math subjects after having been tutored by the teacher. Many of them, after achieving their goal of passing a test, became more confident and motivated to set a higher goal of a higher grade.
I hold a single subject teaching credential in math. I aim to know my students, set practical goals, engage the students during instruction, have students practice in problem solving, and gauge student learning with assessments. Most students can achieve the goal they set if they truly put their minds to it. I will try to help you arrive at those goals if you will work with me regularly, spend time doing practice work patiently and be focused on the goals you have set for yourself.
I worked as a database application support specialist for years and before that a computer application programmer. My enthusiasm for math came from my teachers in secondary schools and college despite the fact that I studied computer science as my major in college. I achieved my goals for college and the goal of becoming a certificated teacher in math. What are your academic goals? I will try to help you achieve those goals by improving your leaning in Algebra/Geometry.

When I realized that my son needed a math tutor for his Algebra 2, I had no ideas where I could find a good one for him. Fortunately we were very lucky to search through WyzAnt and Huey-Ming was the one show up in the search and I spot at first, her review was very good but I had not had any tutors for my kid before; so I thought since her review looked great I could give a try. After contacting her, she replied quickly and agreed to help my son though my schedule was really tight. The first lesson turned out was very good that my son got a lot of help so we decided to ask Huey-Ming to help more. All lessons with Huey-Ming all were excellent and every time I checked with my son after the lesson, he told me the lesson was really helpful. She did a good preparation for each lesson. Here is what I got from my son on her teaching:
1. she was really patient to listen to him and could understand what he was stuck at
2. she explained everything so clear that helped him to have the best understanding
Huey-Ming has been our son’s tutor in algebra and geometry for the last three years, and we have seen a dramatic improvement in his performance in school.
Our son is a bit shy and has low confidence when it comes to math, and Huey-Ming has a good personality that gets him to participate and learn. In addition, Huey-Ming is always flexible when we need her to come on short notice before a big test, which is important since we don’t always know when our son will need extra help.
I would strongly recommend her if you have a child struggling in math.
Ms. H is a very patient and passionate tutor. When she taught my son, she encouraged him to try, ask, and practice in order to figure out math problems. She has good skills to communicate with my son. Ms. H inspired my son's interest in Geometry but also gave him confidence in math.
Mrs. H. is a very patient and knowledgeable tutor. My 6th grade daughter is learning useful material that helps her at school.
She is great and provides an in depth summary of the work she has done with my daughter. She is easy to learn from and my daughter loves her style. She also has developed a curriculum for my daughter that she will complete by the end of the school year that will enable my daughter to be 1 full year ahead in math. My daughter actually looks forward to her learning sessions; she leaves the sessions feeling really smart!
Also, several times I have been late coming to get my daughter because my work schedule changes. I am so comforted because she always sends me a text saying "don't rush, don't worry everything is okay; take your time." In addition to being the best tutor my daughter has had, she has a wonderful attitude!
Ming is a wonderful tutor. I had a previous tutor from wyzant, although she was good she did not help me understand the formulas and help me develop a way to understand my homework like Ming does. I would recommend Ming to anyone who needs help with their math. I went from a 55% on my test before Ming to a 98% on my following test after being tutored by Ming.
Huey Ming is my grandson's first tutor in 6th grade math and we are very satisfied with her abilities. She is prompt, professional and very patient. She cares about his progress and provides helpful reviews after each lesson. With her help, my grandson has become more confident in math. Would recommend.
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.
Word problems can be difficult for young students. Just as reading a person wrong can result in an undesirable situation in a human relationship, so as reading a word problem wrong will result in an undesirable answer. I train the student to read the problem thoroughly and carefully first, then solving the problem will just take some simple guidance.
I assisted and guest taught Algebra 2 for the entire year at a south bay high school. Besides topics such as Matrices and Logarithm, graphing of polynomials and functions, solving for real and complex zeroes call for a tremendous amount of analysis. I can help the student master these skills with careful examination of the clues and signs.
Mandarin is my first language. I have been bilingual since college and am fluent in both English and Mandarin in speaking, reading and writing. I have taught adult ESL classes in a couple of Chinese churches and children's Bible classes to children of all ages with some of them speaking only Mandarin. Setting some practical language learning goals and achieving them while having fun can be exciting for both children and adults.
I have taught Geometry to students with different learning styles and needs. I would like to identify the student's learning style and use different learning strategies to generate a dialogue. Re-working the school lesson and finding the point of confusion allow the student to understand the concepts correctly and solve problems with simple guidance.
