I have taught math full-time in public schools for 7 years. Many of my past students were delighted by my teachings because "Ms. Y can make difficult math concepts easy to understand." I am currently teaching mandarin in a top public school district.

Mandarin Chinese is my mother language. I have taught Chinese in the public school system for 3 years and am holding the New York State certificate. This course was well received and was enjoyed by my students since it was offered in school. I speak non-regional, accent-free Chinese (like you hear on TV). I like to develop lessons in fun and practical ways that helps students to gain interest and master toning and pronunciation. I can teach this subject in all levels. The tutoring sessions can be conducted online or offline. Please let me know your preference.

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

Understanding concepts is extremely important for students to learn well. My goal is to review Algebra 1 concepts such as: number systems, variables, expressions vs equations, polynomials and factoring, linear equations and inequalities, system/quadratic/radical/rational equations, functions and graphing analysis, trigonometric ratios, probability, and statistics. The above seemingly independent subtopics have many intrinsic relationships. With my many years of experience, I know exactly where typical difficulties are and have developed ways to help student connect missing dots and master all the subtopics. I can help students with my conceptual and systematic approach and with ongoing problem-oriented assistance. The tutoring sessions can be conducted online or offline. Please let me know your preference.

Understanding concepts is extremely important for students to learn well. Although Algebra2 & Trigonometry is a heavily packed course with about 80 subtopics, these seemingly independent subtopics have many intrinsic relationships. With my many years of experience, I know exactly where typical difficulties are and have developed ways to help student connect missing dots and master all the subtopics. The Algebra2 & Trigonometry includes: • Equations and Inequalities • Function identification, transformation and variation • Quadratic functions and equations (with complex numbers as roots) • Methods of solving quadratic equations: factoring, complete square, quadratic formula • Quadratic/Absolute value inequalities • Polynomial functions and equations solving • Radical functions and rational exponents • Exponential and logarithmic functions • Rational expressions and equations • Sequence and Series • Conic sections • Probability and statistics • Trigonometric functions and graph analysis • Trigonometric identities and equation solving I can help students with my conceptual and systematic approach and with ongoing problem-oriented assistance. The tutoring sessions can be conducted online or offline. Please let me know your preference.
Geometry,

Geometry

I had a very strong training of Geometry when I was a kid and have strong passion in proving. Besides understanding geometric basic theorems, proving is the key to build students' logical thinking skills, which needs a lot of practice. I can help students to reach this goal by providing a systematic approach and with ongoing problem-oriented assistance. The tutoring sessions can be conducted online or offline.

Understanding concepts is extremely important for students to do standardized test. Lots of questions in SAT are related to more than 1 concept or targeting common misunderstanding. With my 7 year full time teaching experience, I know exactly where the mistakes students usually make and have developed ways/tricks to build up their number sense. I'm currently teaching a SAT course in a local school. One of the students I taught got perfect score in SAT II subject test.

A Great teacher

Helped my 10th grader with summer packet relating to Algebra/Geometry/Algebra2. Xu made complicated topics simple and digestible and gave my child a real sense of confidence. I highly recommend her for anyone needing help with these topics.

Paul, 1 lesson with Xu

Very patient and Intuitive

Xu understands very well what is important for an elementary school student and she is able to give excellent support. My daughter is very comfortable with her and likes her instruction.

Dina, 3 lessons with Xu

Excellent experience

My son has had such a wonderful learning experience with Ms. Y. His confidence level has risen, as he stated that he learned more in one hour than he did in an entire school quarter. My son looks forward to continuing his tutoring sessions with Ms. Y now and in the future. I would highly recommend Ms.Y.
