About Guang

I have been a teaching assistant at the University of Connecticut for two years. I have taught classes in biology and biochemistry with average class sizes of about 20 students. I hold office hours for these classes and I always encourage my students to contact me for one-on-one tutoring if there are materials that they do not quite understand. In cases where the students are having a hard time understanding a complex problem, I like to make simple connections with material they might have seen elsewhere (like analogies) and slowly build up to address the problem. In cases where the student was completely at a loss, I would often go over the very basics very thoroughly and provide examples such that the student will have some hands-on experience instead of just me lecturing. It is a personal belief that learning is like building a skyscraper, you can't expect to build a tower of knowledge without a very stable base (or a very solid understanding of the basics) for which to build upon.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Chess

I was a member of my high school chess team that won the Regional Championship our senior year and have remained an avid player since.

Swimming

I have been swimming since I was a child and was a member of my high school swim team. Afterward, I passed the test to become a lifeguard at the local YMCA and was also approved for CPR. I was part of my high school swim team for all four years, swimming mostly the 200M and 500M distances and then moving on to the individual medleys.

Excellent Tutor — My son has really enjoyed working with Guang and Guang definitely knows his subject material. He communicates well with both my son and myself and is very prompt and reliable. After two tutoring sessions with Guang my son got his first A ever on a Geometry Test. I highly recommend using Guang for a tutor! ...
