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 was born in China, raised there for the first 8 years of my life where I attended school for two years before moving to the U.S. I have also attended Chinese school for a couple of years in the States and go back to China to visit periodically. At home, the predominant language spoken is mandarin.

Taken 2 years of AP Calculus AB and BC. Covers differential, integral calculus, and its applications. I received a 5 on the AB subscore and a 4 on the BC. I have received the AP Scholar Award, 800 on Math PSAT and SAT. Received all A's in every single marking period of calculus for 2 years in high school.
