About Yuchen

I graduated from Northwestern University majoring in Biological Sciences with concentration in Neurobiology. I have 5+ years of tutoring experience with high school and college students. Most of my tutoring experience has been for math, especially pre-calculus and calculus.

Most students are aiming to get a good score on their AP test, SAT tests, or school grades. That is a simple goal to achieve together. My purpose is to enforce practice and teaching how to go about practicing for these exams. Getting a good score on tests is the result of grinding away at problems until they can both understand the concept and become experienced with problem solving techniques. I think the best thing that my students get out of my tutoring with them is a work ethic applied on learning math. They channel that work ethic to other subjects and do better as well. The only thing I actually need to build from the basics is how to learn math and how to gain confidence at problem solving from practice.

Of course, I apply my work ethic towards teaching, too. Being a tutor is also about being a good role model. I am still young enough that most high school and college students can consider me a peer; I understand what problems they are going through and I can help them have a better mindset at dealing with their goals, such as college applications and selecting majors.
