About Yuan

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.

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.

ACT Science

I hold a PhD in Marine Science. I am pretty well versed in science subjects in general.

Biostatistics

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

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!

Genetics

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...)
