About Yihong

I have a PhD degree in Applied Mathematics and enjoy working with teenagers on math in my spare time.

When I was a graduate student, I worked at math help center two hours a day helping students in pre-calculus and engineering mathematics for three years.

From Sept. 2000 to June 2001, I did one-on-one or group tutoring at American Career Institute in Cambridge helping students pass the required math entrance exams.

I've accumulated quite a lot of experience working with young students, including my own kids.

I'd like to tutor students from 5th grade to 12th grade in pre-algebra, algebra I and II, geometry, trigonometry and pre-calculus.

At the beginning of each tutoring session, I need to first make sure that a student sees the big picture of what he or she is being taught in class. I'll spend a few minutes asking students some questions and help them understand what the thing is all about before plunging into details.

Then, I'll ask students some specific questions or ask them to work out a problem in front of me to determine if they really understand the key concepts they are learning at school and where their weaknesses are.

After targeting their weaknesses, I can start to give them more specific help. There's no better way to explain mathematics than working through in detail with students some carefully selected examples. After a few examples, I'll give them similar problems for themselves to work out. If they have questions, instead of offering answers directly, I'll ask them questions as helpful hints so that they can figure out the answer themselves. Instead of fishing for students, I want to motivate them and provide them with tools and methods so that they can fish themselves in the future.

After each tutoring session, I'll send an e-mail to students summarizing key concepts and emphasizing important strategies.
