About Cece

I grew up in Bloomingdale and graduated from Lake Park High School as the #2 student with 5.5 out of 5.0 GPA. I took many honors and AP classes, and had top scores on the ACT, SAT tests, and AP Exams- recognized 31 college credits from AP exams. I earned a full academic scholarship to Michigan State University and graduated with top honors (3.98 out of 4.0 GPA) with Finance degree and International Business in 2007. I tutored accounting, economics, math, and finance while at MSU and have a passion for teaching others.

I have worked for over 10 years in the investment & corporate banking/ portfolio management industry, and recently switched to part-time employment as I have a young toddler at home. This has allowed me to take on more students to tutor and I look forward to sharing with you what I have learned to help you love academics and to succeed.

Math was an easy subject for me to pick up in school and I have learned many shortcuts and tips to help you understand the basics of algebra and beyond. I love reading, writing, and everything connected with English and grammar. Together, I will help you develop the basics so you will succeed on your papers and national exams. I easily connect with children and adults of all ages. I am patient, understanding, and have a solid grasp of the elementary school through University level subjects.

Please email me so we can get to know each other and help you to meet your goals.

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 English

I scored a 35 on the ACT English section and have learned many techniques and shortcuts that I will share with you. My unique approach and personality makes learning fun, and all of my students have reported improvements to their test scores. Currently, I work part-time for a boutique investment banking firm where sharp writing skills and grammar are key assets to my job.

ACT Math

I scored a 35 on the ACT math section and have learned many methods to help you to quickly understand the major components of the math test- algebra, word problems, trigonometry, and geometry. If you need a refresher course in any of the various subjects or are looking for test taking skills, I am confident that I will be able to help you. My unique approach and personality makes learning fun, and all of my students have reported improvements to their test scores.

ACT Reading

I took AP English and Literature and have read many of the American classics. I know how to read quickly, yet thoroughly, and how to tackle many of the questions/ traps on the ACT reading section. My unique approach and personality makes learning fun, and all of my students have reported improvements to their test scores.

ACT Science

The ACT science section actually tests more of your understanding of reading charts, graphs, and connecting the relationships versus book knowledge of biology and chemistry. My current portfolio management profession involves analyzing many charts and drawing meaningful conclusions. I have tutored students for over 10 years and enjoy sharing what I have learned in school and the workplace to help them to reach their goals. My unique approach and personality makes learning fun, and all of my students have reported improvements to their test scores.

Chinese

Because I am a first generation Chinese American born in IL, my parents saw how important it was to make sure I grew up knowing how to speak and write in Chinese. I am fully fluent in Mandarin (official language of China) and have visited China about 8 times now. My most recent trip to China was in 2012. In 2009 and 2010, I was invited to represent the United States at China's International Camps specializing in folk dance and kung fu. I am also the Public Relations Director and a performer with Yellow River Performing Arts Group, a non-profit group dedicated to bringing cultural awareness of China's rich culture through music and dance.

Economics

I majored in Finance, specialized in international business, and studied abroad in Monterrey, Mexico during my full academic scholarship at Michigan State University. I also took honors microeconomics, honors macroeconomics, honors international economics, economics & law, and health economics, and am well equipped to help you understand the fundamentals of economics. Since graduating in 2007, I have worked in the investment and corporate banking industry, with a focus in the middle market and senior living space.

SAT Math

I've tutored students for many years and have a sharp eye in spotting each student's strengths & weaknesses, and I specifically tailor my lessons to each student's goals. My unique approach and personality makes learning fun, and all of my students have reported improvements to their test scores.
