About Cheng

Overcoming the Math Heart Attack:

My name is Han (you can call me John) and I think I am the best fit for you! I have completed high school in Asia, and I am currently enrolled Baruch college and study accounting.

I personally took GED and ACT tests. If anyone wants to take these two tests, I am the best tutor who can help you guide through the difficulties, and build up customized studying plan for you. Of course, no more heart attack at the end!!!

I have been working on this site for almost 3 year, with more than 900 hours' tutoring experience. So I am confident to say I am "veteran" for tutoring.

Biggest Strength for me: Patient
Patient is the first step let you ease the nerve for math. I like to illustrate or explain the problems with different methods and simple language until students understand.

Words to you:
There is no short cut for overcoming math, but with effort and strategy, you will be the "master" of the math.

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.

ACT Math

ACT math basically can be summarized by one sentence: Time limited, and with gradual difficulties to the end.

The most difficult part might be trigonometry, but it only has 4 or 5 question, and mostly at the end.

The strategy for taking ACT math would be take less time on other parts, such as pre-algebra, elementary algebra, intermediate-algebra, and some geometry. Additionally, algebra and geometry contain as much as 50% of total questions. Thus, I will take as much time to focus on these two areas.

I personally took ACT, and I am experienced with this test, especially with math. I will be perfect tutor for you!

Algebra 1

First, the algebra is a critical and somewhat difficult course in high school. Second, the algebra can simply linked to our future career, such as computer, engineering...The algebra generally contains 6 main parts, including Arithmetic Operations, Fractions, Factoring, Quadratic Formula and graph related to the algebra equation.

1.For the first learner, students need to build up solid operation order in equation. For example: 3+2*3+8/2=?; What should we solve first, is it right to solve this problem from left to right, or need to consider some sort to particular order in this equation.

2.Fraction is leading students into different "Figure World". First of all, students need to solve basic addition, subtraction, multiply and division by using fraction. Second, students can be able to solve the problem like this:3/x-1+2/x+2=? To understand this problem, we need to find common denominator and then add up. Sounds fairly simple!

3.Factoring is relatively easy but still needs work. There is a formula to attach this type of problem, if you keep the formula in mind, it won't be too difficult. However, students need to reverse on some numbers.

4.Quadratic Formula basically has the same concept which strictly relies on formulas, it won't be an obstacle for students if you use formula effectively.


Chinese is my first language, and I am perfectly fluent in Mandarin. I was educated in China from elementary to high school.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am currently tutoring elementary math.

Elementary Math

The best way to overcome elementary math is understanding addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fraction, decimal, percentage and average. These contents seem like a huge amount, but they are interactive with each other.

For example: "25%" -- to understand what percentage means, you have to have some knowledge of decimals (0.25) and fractions (25/100). Thus, once you understand basic multiplication, addition, and subtraction, you will easily get to the point of average and decimal problem.

Furthermore, I think Elementary math also requires students to know some basic algebra.


GED math contains 25 multiple-choice question with calculator; 25 multiple-choice questions without calculator.

I think most students are struggling with practical questions. With long sentences which likes small paragraph, you have to solve like "what is average wage, length, distance...

Students will be stunned by these long sentences, and easily lose interest on this type of question.

For this type of problems, students don't really know how to eliminate some extra and unuseful words. So most students can't solved correctly, and probably do random guess.

The most important thing is that, students need to find the main words from each long sentences.
Algebra is another difficulty for students.

The other parts like geometry, data analysis, probability, statistics are relatively easier than other parts.


The subject of geometry is basically deal with some certain shape, and solve the problem like acquiring area, cube, circumference ... This subject also comes with strict formular to attach each question to get exact answer.

I personally think that the most struggling part for students is that they can't think question abstractly when comes to the certain shape. Once we build up the abstract figure in our mind, I think it is easy to crack the the problem of geometry!


Trigonometry requires you to have a better understanding of sine, cosine, tant, csc, sec, and cot. You have to understand what these represent and how can they switch together. Based on that, you have to sketch graphs from sine, cosine, etc. Also, the formula of sine, cos, tant, and so on are very important parts for verifying equations.

Cheng is helping my daughter with algebra and geometry. I am very pleased the way Cheng is tutoring my daughter. He breaks down complex material/problems to a simple and easy language to understand. He is not only highly intelligent but also a skilled teacher.
