New York University (Math Education)
Howdy! My name is Yinxiao (Agnes) Y., a great Math fan and an experienced tutor, majoring in Secondary Math Education at New York University. I have worked with students of various ages and levels for more than 6 years. I enjoy helping students build confidence in manipulating Math while patiently guiding them to progress.
I have experience teaching in 1st, 3rd and 4th grade classrooms as a general practice teacher. In terms of tutoring experience, I tutored Math and Science at Kingsborough College, as well as group tutoring 7th and 8th graders. And I am currently tutoring Math at Robert Fulton Middle School for the New York University-America Counts Department. I really enjoy teaching and tutoring.
Based on my experience and what I have learned from my major, I generated some effective tutoring strategies: connecting new/complicated knowledge with prior/simpler knowledge so that students can comprehend better and easier; explaining knowledge with detailed demonstrations; reinforcing students' understanding with related exercise; helping students recognize and avoid common misunderstanding and pitfalls and so on. The effectiveness of these methods has already successfully been proven by my former students' great progress.
You can communicate with me in English, Mandarin Chinese and Cantonese. I am also proficient in reading and writing the language I listed above.

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.
Algebra 2 is also one of my favorite and best subjects. Strategies I used to solve Algebra 1 problems work very well on solving Algebra 2 problems, too. This was proven by my former students' progress.
I have experience tutoring college Calculus for 2 semesters. My students said that they learned more problem solving strategies from me than from their professors.
As a person who was born and raised in China, I began to learn to speak, read, and write standard Mandarin since I was a little kid, and have built solid Chinese foundation. I passed the National Putonghua (Mandarin) Proficiency Test (held by China National Committee for Chinese Language) at level 2, where level 1 is the best level. Also, from other foreign language classes I took, I know how a language should be taught and learned as a foreign language.
Helping youngsters build connection between real life and scientific knowledge is an effective way to let them comprehend and be interested in Science. I have helped my young students become manipulative on Science by using this method.

Grammar is one of the main elements that influence your reading skill, which will eventually affect your comprehension to other subjects. I can help you improve both your grammar and reading level at the same time by comparing and contrasting the difference and similarity of various grammar points, as well as building connections between your prior grammar understanding and new knowledge.
Do you need to do demonstration in front of a group of people to convey your idea? A great PowerPoint presentation can polish your demonstration and will distinguish you from other competitors.

The PowerPoint skill I put on my presentation greatly helps me draw my audiences' attention while making all my points clear to them. If you need help on polishing your PowerPoint skill, I can absolutely give you a hand.

Precalculus is the prerequisite of Calculus courses. At the meanwhile, it is the composite of many other math knowledge such as balancing and solving equations you learned in Algebra, handling circle problems you learned in Geometry, solving trig functions you learned in Trigonometry and so on. As a Math fan, I can easily help you master your Precalculus by guiding you build connections between your prior knowledge and the new knowledge you encounter in Precalculus.
