I am a medicinal chemist doing organic synthesis in biotech industry. I got my master degree in organic and polymer chemistry at Peking University in Beijing, China, in 1987. I was enrolled in a Ph.D program of medicinal chemistry at Univ. of Conn. in 1994. After I finished my graduate courses (grade A for Organic Chemistry) I came to Boston to join my wife and our new-born baby in 1996. Since then I have worked at various biotech companies. Besides chemistry I have hands-on experiences in molecular biology and basic knowledge about mathematics including statistics.
My tutoring methods focus on the problem solving based on the understanding of the systematic knowledge of chemistry. I’ll encourage students to ask any questions about chemistry. I have tutored college students and high school students.
I am patient and a music lover, and like hiking and traveling. My family and I have been living in Boston area for many years. We have 2 kids in high school/college.

I took organic chemistry tutoring with Yingfei, he was great at explaining the material to me, and always answered any questions I had clearly. With him, I understood mechanisms better and pictured them in an easier way.
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.
I have a master degree in chemistry and work as a chemist in biotech companies. I tutored my kids high school chemistry.
I use Microsoft Excel on a regular base, creating/editing/organizing the worksheets. I'm familiar with Excel's functions such as table, chart, format, formula, and its statistics functions as well. I like to go into the details of using Excel.
I use Microsoft Word on a regular base, formatting and editing the files. I use Word's functions within the files for searching/replacing, tracing the changes, and creating tables as well. I like to go into the details of using Excel.
I have a full scale training of organic chemistry both on bachelor and master level. I earned an A score when I took the graduate course of Organic Chemistry in Chemistry Department at the University of Connecticut. I have worked as an organic chemist for more than 10 years.
The advanced training and practicing in organic chemistry have really helped me to understand the basic organic chemistry better and know how, which make me enjoy to review the text books of organic chemistry. I would like to share this happiness with my potential students of organic chemistry.
