About Hong

I am an American born Chinese with a B.S. in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Southern California. I also have a year's worth of study abroad experience in Beijing at Peking University.

I specialize in tutoring Math and Mandarin.
I currently tutor elementary school and intermediate school children in math.
I like to solve problems in a logical step by step manner so that my students can eventually become independent problem solvers.

After graduating college, I took some time to really improve my Chinese language skills. I learned a lot of modern Chinese in addition to the standard Chinese that you learn in books. I also took the time to learn more about Chinese traditional and popular culture.
Furthermore, studying abroad in Beijing really allowed me be immersed with the culture, rather than just learning about it.
I used to think learning Chinese is just memorization, but now that I understand where the characters come from and why they are the way they are, learning Chinese is actually enjoyable. I currently teach children basic and intermediate level Mandarin. I teach students of all ages.

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 grew up speaking Mandarin at home with my family. I went to 5 years of Saturday Chinese school as a child. (1997-2002) I completed the highest level of Chinese offered in the School of Chinese for Foreigners at Peking University in China (2013-2014).
