About Ying


Bio

Sorry for putting PhD on the title. It is nothing but marketing. Yes, I did publish and propose several new mathematical methods. But it is not really critical to tutoring. Enthusiasm is more important than degree.

I have great teaching experience:
More than 170 hours of volunteer tutoring service in Pre-algebra, algebra 1, algebra 2 when I was in Florida and in Taiwan. Private tutor in calculus with three 11th graders now in Saint Paul.
Teaching assistant in linear algebra for second year...

I have great teaching experience:
More than 170 hours of volunteer tutoring service in Pre-algebra, algebra 1, algebra 2 when I was in Florida and in Taiwan. Private tutor in calculus with three 11th graders now in Saint Paul.
Teaching assistant in linear algebra for second year college students (National Chengchi U., Taipei.).
Teaching assistant in Principle of Economics for undergraduate students (National Chengchi U., Taipei.)
Teaching assistant in general chemistry for freshmen (U of Iowa).
Teaching assistant in physical chemistry for senior college students and graduate students. (U of Iowa)
I was also a volunteer in Art Adventure program by Minneapolis Institute of Art 2014. The job was bringing the masterpieces to classrooms and introducing them to elementary school students.

With traveling time and time arrangement concern, I have 6 hours ahead cancellation policy.

The purpose of teaching is to help students in learning. As a teacher, it is my responsibility to know who my students are, what kinds of knowledge and experience they currently have, and what they want to achieve so that I can tailor a curriculum that fits most of their needs. Only when I know where my students are, I am able to make out a blueprint they need to build connections between what they already know and our mutual learning goals.

Linux

I have 4 months of experience of Linux Administrator and also have been a Linux user for longer than 8 years. I will not only teach you cd, ls, pwd, mkdir. I will teach you how to use pipeline, history, grep, chmod, wc -l and even awk, seq, and batch file (shell script). Surely you don't need to know yum, user create, unless you plan to be a Red Hat Enterprise Admin.

Chinese is my mother tongue. I finished all courses in my K-12 education in Chinese, except English. I won several Chinese essay writing contests when I was in middle school. I was TA in Economics taught in Chinese.

Homeschool

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

I have (1) three years of teaching experience with college students at U of Iowa in US. (1 year with freshman and two years with junior/senior.) (2) four years of tutoring experience in math/physics with high school students in Taiwan. (another 2 years of teaching experience with college students in Taiwan.) (3) My 11-year-old daughter at grade 7 is also taking algebra one now. (She got A+ in her pre-algebra.) (4) I am parent coaching LEGO league team with 6th and 7th graders. (5) I always try to understand my students. (6) I have three degrees in STEM, using algebra is as natural as breath.
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

Algebra 2 was one of my favorite subjects in my learning and teaching history. I have more than 170 hours of volunteer tutoring service experience in pre-algebra, algebra 1, algebra 2 with math corp. I know the common pitfalls students may have.
Calculus,

Calculus

I have great experience in teaching both high school math and undergraduate college courses including private tutoring in Calculus. Actually, when I was a discussion TA in Physical Chemistry for senior college students, I gave extra review classes (calculus, linear algebra, 2nd-order differential equation) to prepare my students before the normal lectures on quantum physics. My students proved these reviews really helped. They also gave me average 5.3-5.5 out of 6 teaching evaluation.
Chemistry,

Chemistry

Ph.D. in Chemistry. Taught general chemistry for 1 year and physical chemistry for 2 years at U of Iowa.
Physics,

Physics

In Florida and Taiwan, I helped more than 5 high school students on their Physics. They all proved that the way I taught was effective and helpful especially in clarifying the concepts/applications in Newtonian mechanics. At U of Iowa, 5-6 years ago, I taught Physical Chemistry for two years. My students gave me 5.4 out 6 in student evaluation. The course covers or is based on most of high school physics topics. The above is about my teaching. Below is my problem solving in physics. (it includes those five topics physical chemistry does not cover.) Besides getting grade A in Classical Mechanics at graduate level in Dept. of Physics at U of Iowa. I got full scores (99.99% percentile) in physics in the three following exams: 1. University Entrance Exam in Taiwan 2. ROCT officer qualification exam (only male college graduates participate) 3. WyzAnt Qualification test.

Math

ACT Math,

ACT Math

ACT math is covered by three major subjects: algebra 1, algebra 2 and geometry. I have plenty of experience teaching middle/high school students on these subjects. Different from teaching these three, I will put some time on exam skills (how to do it faster.) You can go to my profile to check my qualifications for algebra 1, algebra 2 and geometry.

Linear Algebra,

Linear Algebra

I was a TA in linear algebra in National Chengchi University (Spring 1998). You cannot learn quantum physics, fluid mechanics, material mechanics, continuum mechanics, elastic mechanics without linear algebra. I took all of the above. When I was TA in Physical Chemistry II at U of Iowa, I gave two hours of brief review on linear algebra to prepare my students for quantum physics.
