About Dorothy

Hello!

My name is Dorothy. I graduated with a B.S. in Biochemistry with high distinction and biochemistry honors and I graduated with a M.S. in Pharmacology. Currently, I am in medical school.

I have been a private tutor since 2006. I have worked as a tutor at a Math and Reading learning center for two years and I have worked as a science supplemental Instructor at the university I attended. I know that I am an effective tutor because I am able to convey information in many different ways so that students have the opportunity to understand a subject from different viewpoints. I feel that this is necessary because when students are able to tackle a question in more than one way, they are able to analyze and think "outside the box."

In my opinion, life is all about learning and self-improvement. I want to be able to help students realize that they have what it takes to reach their potential and be the best that they can be!

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.

Chinese

I have been speaking Cantonese all my life. I have took three years of high school mandarin, which allowed me to waive my language requirement in college. In addition, I went to Chinese school for two years in middle school. I am familiar with the stroke patterns of Chinese characters, which may allow me to teach students how to write Chinese characters. Note: Chinese characters do not change with different Chinese dialects.

Piano

I have been playing the piano for 14 years. I am the Co-founder and president of the Piano Club at the University of Michigan-Dearborn. I have attended Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp and Interlochen Fine Arts Camp on scholarship for the piano. I was also part of the Piano Pedagogy Laboratory Program at the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor.
