About Ping

I was an associate professor who taught college 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 after I moved to Boston in 2011.
I have a teacher certificate as a physics teacher for teaching at the University in China. I used to lecture over 100 students a time. I taught calculus-based college physics in China. Physics concepts may be difficult to understand for some of students especially for those who are 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 one of my strongest subjects in high school. I have a lot of experience teaching bilingual learners. I had tutored 4 years old to 18 years old. I have worked with middle school and high school students who take Chinese at their school. I helped them do their homework and improve their grades in tests and quizzes. I had collected a lot of Chinese children's songs, stories and Chinese cartoons which are good supplemental materials for younger kids to learn Chinese. We can learn Chinese through a fun learning process with songs, games, stories and the conversation of daily life.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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 1

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

Algebra 2 includes 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. I've worked with students taking Algebra 2 at Winchester High School, Winchester high school and Medford High School.

Chinese

I am a native Chinese Speaker. I have a lot of experience teaching bilingual learners. I had tutored 4 years old to 18 years old. I have worked with middle school and high school students who take Chinese at their school. I helped them do their homework and improve their grades in tests and quizzes.

Physics

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 in 2011. I also have a teacher certificate as a physics teacher for teaching at the 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,Burlington high school and Arlington High School.

Prealgebra

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.

I can help you understand concepts well and improve your ability to solve word problem.

Precalculus

Precalculus topics include Polynomial functions, Rational functions, Inverse functions, Exponential functions, Logarithmic functions, Sequences and series, Binomial theorem , Vectors etc. I've worked with students taking precalculus at Winchester High School, Woburn high school, Lexington High school and Medford High School.

Knowledgable and patient tutor in Chinese and teaching skills with schedule flexibility

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 schedul
