About Miffy


Bio

Hi! I am a graduate student at Boston University for Computer Science. Prior to this, I also earned a B.A. in Psychological and Brain Sciences, also at BU.

I have many years of experience in tutoring kids of various ages, from elementary school to high school, so I have had extensive practice in explaining complicated concepts by breaking them into smaller parts.

Hi! I am a graduate student at Boston University for Computer Science. Prior to this, I also earned a B.A. in Psychological and Brain Sciences, also at BU.

I have many years of experience in tutoring kids of various ages, from elementary school to high school, so I have had extensive practice in explaining complicated concepts by breaking them into smaller parts.

I am fluent in both Mandarin Chinese and English (native Chinese speaker, grew up in Seattle), so I will be able to conduct our sessions in both languages if that helps you.

I would love to focus on areas including but not limited to: Computer Science, Computer Programming (Java, Python, R specifically), Statistics, Chinese (reading/writing/speaking), Psychology, and Math.

I am excited to be joining Wyzant, and in addition to the subjects above, I am generally pretty well-rounded. If there is something you need help with but is not listed, nor traditional, feel free to ask and I will let you know if I'm right for the job!

Whether you need help on a specific project, or help with a subject area in general, I want to tailor our session to your specific needs. I am very flexible, and want to help you the best that I can! So please send me a message to discuss what will work best for you!
