Hello! I am Ms. L., my students call me Dr. L.
I grew up and attended college in China, but have been in the US for almost 30 years! I got my master's degree in economics from university of Connecticut, then a Ph.D from Yale (operations research / finance), worked on Wall Street as a quantitative portfolio manager for more than 10 years, and have been teaching at colleges since 2009 as an adjunct professor.

I am teaching in the areas of math, economics and finance. Most of my students are working adults with very different backgrounds. Some are grandparents going back to school to realize their dreams, some are in their 20s to get a college degree, some are successful middle managers to get their graduate degree to advance their careers. So I am able to work with students of all academic levels. Sometimes I need to start with the basic arithmetic, then go on to basic algebra, then to solve system of equations! So whatever your level are, I can communicate with you, get you comfortable with math, build your skills and confidence!

I love math! Doing math problems are therapeutic to me! This is the main reason I choose tutoring math in addition to college teaching. I have tutored middle school math and all levels of high school math (Algebra 1 & 2, Geometry, trigonometry, precalculus, calculus, SAT Math, ACT math).

In addition to math, I am also interested in tutoring Microeconomics, macroeconomics, financial markets, corporate finance. Theses are the areas I teach in college and I have corporate experience. I can combine my real world experience with academic theories!

I am a loving mom (son graduated from top college and is in medical school, daughter is going to an ivy college). It is through helping my own kids that I realized that I can explain the concepts better than their teachers. I am very patient, have flexible schedule. I will not only explain the concepts and help you with problems, but also teach you how to think. I care about both your skills and confidence.

I prefer tutoring at my home ( I have a comfortable big house). But I am able to drive to your home if you are close or we can meet in the library or coffee shops

Our first meeting will be learning about each other and where your difficulties are, discussing how often you need and the best time for us.
