I have a Master's degree in Information Science and a successful career in higher education for over 20 years. What I love the most about teaching & tutoring is the interaction with students. Their interest in learning inspires me. My best tutoring techniques are encouragement and knowledge expertise.
As a member of the Mathematics Association of America, I have taught under-and graduate-level courses in Algebra, Trigonometry, Research Methods and Statistics. I have authored textbooks and curricula in various subjects. I often volunteer in math enrichment programs for middle schoolers, where I teach mathematical concepts through fun and hands-on activities.
As a bilingual educator, (English-Chinese), I am especially effective in tutoring non-native English speakers.
I welcome questions from students and parents as well. I consider it a privilege to be a part of a team that supports you to succeed!

First and Best Tutor!

Are you new to Wyzant and hesitating to choose the right tutor? If so, look no further because Shwan has been an AMAZING tutor for me! Shwan is very attentive and knows her math. Overall, I am happy to have Shwan as a tutor and look forward to more sessions with her!

Edward, 5 lessons with Shwan

Very positive and confidence building math tutor

Shwan is hands down the best math tutor we have ever used. She helped my daughter understand the math concepts she was struggling with at school by working through the problems with her in a way that was easy for her to understand. My daughter left her first session feeling so relieved and positive. Her test and homework scores have drastically improved!

Dara, 3 lessons with Shwan

Skilled and patient Math tutor

Shwan has been working with our son who is a High School Junior IB math student. We feel fortunate to have found Shwan as she knows exactly how to make some difficult math problems look easy. Our son has a much better understanding of the concepts and Shwan works with him to ensure he understands all aspects of his math class. I would highly recommend Shwan.

Sandra, 13 lessons with Shwan

Knowledgeable and inspiring

My son enjoyed his lesson with Shwan. She ignited his passion for math by being encouraging and making it fun. He is really looking forward to more lessons...he asked if he could come every day!
