During my PhD years, I had been a Teaching Assistant for various science classes. I lectured big classes, led smaller groups, and had one on one "tutoring sessions" during office hours. I am patient and I can always think in students' shoes. I believe there are two most important things to be a successful educator: 1) You know what you are doing very well; 2) You have a good attitude, which inspires your students and makes them want to learn from/with you.
Except teaching undergraduate level classes, I was a mentor for a high school student on a science project. I was also an instructor for middle school students during a summer camp. I have tutoring experience, both in China and in US. Subjects I have tutored in include Math, Earth Science, History, English, and Chinese Mandarin. I look forward to the opportunity to help you clear any barriers in study and move forward in achieving your career goals!
I am very good with math. I got full mark taking GRE examination. I am currently tutoring a high school student on Algebra and Geometry, and I am preparing the student for SAT Math.
My students in school always leave me the most positive evaluations. I think my number one strength is my attitude. I genuinely care about students' performance. I am not there to please my students, yet, nor am I there to make them feel bad. I am there to inspire, to lead, and to infuse.
I am super responsive with my email. Drop me a line if you have any questions about my qualifications. Feel free to contact me even if you just want to make an enquiry.

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 hold a PhD in Marine Science. I am pretty well versed in science subjects in general.
I've taken biostatistics classes during college and phd years. I have been constantly using biostatistical methods in my own research. When I was a Teaching Assistant at Stony Brook University, I taught Biology classes where there was a large component on biostatistics as well.
Chinese is my mother tongue. I was born and raised in the northern part of China, where I was taught Mandarin. I was once a tutor for the two kids of an American visiting scholar in Xiamen University when I was an undergraduate student there. The two girls made substantial progress during the summer when they learned Chinese with me. During my PhD years, I had been a Teaching Assistant.
I can provide help on Chinese pronunciation, reading, characters writing, composing, public speaking...I enjoy teaching languages!
For my PhD research work, I used a DNA fingerprinting technique and cloning/sequencing to study microorganisms. I also took classes on classical genetics and did well. I taught some genetics to undergraduate students (Mendelian inheritance, punter square, mutation...)
