Sichuan University, China (Master's)
I was an associate professor who taught physics at a university for eight years in China before I came to the United States. I had done research related to Physics at Clemson University and University of Florida for eight years. I found my passion to be a teacher or tutor again when I moved to Boston In 2011.
I have a teacher certificate as a physics teacher for teaching at University in China. I used to lecture over 100 students. I taught calculus-based college physics in China. Physics concepts may be difficult to understand for some of students especially for who is new to this subject. I like one-on-one tutoring, because I can quickly find each individual student's strength and weakness, then I can help them better understand concepts and master problem solving strategy. I'd love to see students' faces lighten up after my explanations clear all the confusion and questions they may have. I'd love to see students gaining confidence in solving problems.
I had chances to reinforce my math skills while I have done research all these years. I have very strong mathematical skills. I could help you get better at understanding the basics of mathematics and gaining confidence in solving problem.
I am a native Chinese speaker. Chinese Language was always one of my strong subjects in high school while I was in China. I have a lot of experience teaching Chinese to kids who are bilingual learners. I had also taught after school Chinese class to small group of students in an elementary School. I had tutored students aged 4 to 18 years old. I collected a lot of Chinese children's songs, stories and Chinese cartoons which make for good supplemental materials for Chinese learning. You will have the opportunity to choose the method you feel comfortable with: either conversation of daily life or a fun learning process with songs, games and stories.

Ping is a responsible and very patient tutor who has been working with our child and has the ability to break down complicated math issues where they are able to be understood and applied. She is punctual and has been willing to devote extra time when needed.
I have been having Ping as my tutor for almost 3 months, she has been extremely helpful to me. Physics is one of my weak subjects and especially in senior year I needed a good grade before I graduate. She's really patient, easy to understand. She has helped me on difficult HWs, helped me prepare quizzes an and tests. Honestly I feel really lucky to find Ping as my tutor for physics, she taught me not just deep understanding in physics, but gave me confidence in this subject.
Ping has helped our daughter excel in her Chinese studies so that it is now her favorite subject. It always takes us a while to find a tutor our daughter works will with and Ping fits the bill perfectly. Ping is very skillful in having the student figure out the problem by their self while not allowing the student to become frustrated. She is also very easy to reach and very flexible with scheduling sessions.
Ping was very kind, patient, and got right down to it with my daughter, but she was difficult to understand therefore my daughter didn't have a satisfactory lesson despite spending 1-1/2 hours reviewing algebra problems.
Ping very patiently helped my daughter through concepts she did not understand. Ping is always very professional and is willing to work with us when we need scheduling changes.
We have had our first lesson and Ping was very good with our two daughters. She made it fun for them to learn, and was able to mix in lots of different things to keep their attention. We look forward to more lessons.
Ping was very patient with my son and willing to commit to a tutoring session with only one day advance. I believe meeting with Ping helped him perform better on his Pre-Calculus quiz the next day.
Ping broke down word problems and incorporated Physics equations into them making it easier to understand the applications! I will most likely return for more help later in my semester.
My daughter's AP physics class is very demanding and very fast paced. Ping was great at working with her to help her keep up and to understand the material. She really enjoyed working with Ping and has chosen her to be her permanent tutor for the whole year!
Ping is a patient,competent and knowledgeable tutor, my daughter thought the class to be very helpful and she enjoyed it very much. Thank you Ping!
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.
Algebra seems hard at first for students who just start learning it. Instead of using numbers algebra introduces letters as symbols to represent generalized numbers that may vary(Variables). Algebra also defines the rules of mathematical expressions and equations.
To me problem solving is like to solve a puzzle. You list the information you know and use variables for unknown information. Then you find the connection between them to form one or more equations. Then you solve those equations. You will get what you are looking for.
I can help you understand concepts well and improve problem solving skills.
Algebra 2 including factoring, finding roots, solving sets of equations, exponential functions, polynomials, quadratic functions and rational expression etc.
I can help you understand concepts well and improve problem solving skills. Problem solving is kind of like finding the missing puzzle. First you have to break down the problem. Then list all the information you know and use variables for unknown information. Then you find the connection between those information to form one or more equations. At last You got the answer after solving equations.
I've worked with students taking Algebra 2 at Winchester High School and Medford High School.
I am a native Chinese Speaker. Chinese Language was always one of my strong subjects in high school while I was in China. I got high scores on the college entrance exam for this subject. I have passed the Mandarin test to be qualified as a teacher in China. I have a lot of experience teaching Chinese to kids who are bilingual learners. I had also taught after school Chinese class to small group of students in an Elementary School. I had tutored students aged 4 to 18 years old. I also tutored adult students.
I have a master's degree in physics (Optics). I taught college physics for eight years at a University in China before I came to the United States. I had done research related to physics at Clemson University and University of Florida for eight years before I came to Boston. I also have a teacher certificate as a physics teacher for teaching at University in China. I've worked with students taking AP physics, high school honors physics and high school physics at Belmont High School, Lexington High School, Weston High School and Arlington High School.
The objective of pre-algebra is to prepare the student for the study of algebra. Pre-algebra includes several broad subjects: new types of numbers such as integers, fractions, decimals and negative numbers, factorization of natural numbers, Ratios, proportions, and percentages, basic geometry etc.
