About Yu

Hello Students and Parents:

My name is Yu and I have a master's in math from the University of Maryland, College Park. I have had almost a decade of tutoring experience in a variety of subjects and I've improved their grades by an average of a letter grade. My talent is taking apart complicated systems and breaking it down into easy-to-explain, simple parts.

I enjoy tutoring and working with students, and from experience I understand that different students have different needs. I'm currently running two algebra classes, and several tutoring classes for 9th grade chemistry, Algebra II, physics, and pre-calculus.

Thank you,

Yu

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.

Chess

I'm a Chessmaster. I've been tutoring chess for the last 10 years outside of WyzAnt. I have a US Chess Federation ID number.

Logic

I've been tutoring math for a long time. I got a math degree in college, and I've passed classes in abstract algebra, discrete math, and set theory, both of which use formal logic.
