About Tony

My tutoring approach could be online or face-to-face. Regardless, I do hope that I could get questions from students in advance so that I can prepare the best answers or solution. This way, it won't waste students' time by waiting for me to come up with a good solution.

My educational background is science. I did well during college years and high schools in math, calculus. I did tutor high school kids during my college years. During my graduate studies, I tutored both summer program students and taught lab classes for the undergraduate. All these experiences have convinced that tutoring is a bridge between what I know and how I can make full use of that knowledge.


For me, teaching is a process of re-learning what I’ve known through a different angle. In addition, to be a great teacher, it requires a lot of calibers including persistence in self-learning, patience to understand students’ concerns and motivation to solve any potential problems from students. Through extensive graduate work and teaching experience, I’ve gradually acquired some of these traits.

During my teaching, I met many students with different background and interests. As freshmen, some of them had great ambition and curiosity to learn something they did not understand well. With proper guidance and encouragement, I did see that some of those students gradually improved in their lab classes. Though maintaining myself as the instructor, I never intended to put myself in a superior position on top of my students. To a great extent, I do believe that teachers should encourage constructive suggestion from students and that it is not a downgrading gesture to admit students’ excellence in certain aspects.


To sum up, I enjoy reaching out to students and teaching them what I’ve learned. It affords me a great sense of achievement and responsibility. In this regard, I respectively hope that my application to this online teaching will be approved.
