About Kaiyuan

I received a B.S. in Exercise Biology from UC Davis and a Master of Science in Biomedical Science from Eastern Virginia Medical School. I am currently an osteopathic medical student at Des Moines University. I had experience tutoring all levels of math and science (physics, chemistry, biology, anatomy) at the after-school program of a high school in Sacramento for over a year and private tutoring for total of 5 years. To me, nothing is more rewarding than hearing students enjoy the subject more and show great improvements in the subject. I am currently available for math tutoring.

I tailor my teaching method based on student's need and learning style. During a regular school year, I tend to focus on clarifying concepts. Before a big test, I concentrate on improving students' weaknesses in certain topics. I also provide tips about study skills and testing strategies. I also help students organize materials and highlight important concepts in chapters.

Mandarin-Chinese is my native language. I was born and raised in Taiwan until 16 years old, so I am proficient in writing and reading traditional Chinese as well as speaking in Mandarin. After coming to America, I self-taught simplified Chinese and pinyin.

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.

Chinese

Mandarin-Chinese is my native language. I was born and raised in Taiwan until 16 years old, so I am proficient in writing and reading traditional Chinese as well as speaking in Mandarin. After coming to America, I learned simplified Chinese and pinyin on my own.

I had experience in tutoring Mandarin when I was an undergraduate at UC Davis. I tutored a student Mandarin before she went to China to study abroad. We used her own materials and we focus on pronunciation and daily conversations. I am currently tutoring 2 elementary students on Chinese speaking as well

Very professional!

It was a pleasure to have Kenny as a tutor for my son. He is very patient, smart and get along very good with students. I can recommend him as a good tutor for chemistry and algebra and maybe for much more. Thank you Kenny for all your help. Hi from my son, too!
