About Kai

Why do I truly believe that a teacher can make big difference in student's future?

Through my own experience, I was fortunate to have a few best middle-high school math and science teachers, so I know the difference, besides it seems obvious. A good teacher helps to build a strong intellectual ability through the subject matter then it goes beyond, and no subject is more important than math. Therefore, choose a good math tutor also can make a big difference.

Why do I believe I am a very good tutor?

My qualifications: I hold a BS degree from the best college in China, and a ME degree in civil engineering in US. From grade school to college I tutored math. But more importantly I was my children's math tutor, both are doing very well in college and graduate school. Because of working with my children on math at all levels I have gotten to know the math education well, including tests such as SAT. For example, I went through the study books and all sample tests myself. I can say that I have a very good way of instruction which is built on having solved volumes of problems - for I know well what is the basics and how to understand them. In addition I have acquired some knowledge through my own children's college application process and that maybe informative to some parents too.

It is very important for a kid to build a solid base in math especially in middle and high school. Once kids have a solid base most can stand on their own.

Having raised children pay check by pay check myself, I identify with all parents who are doing all for kids. If I am hired to tutor I would do the very best to help the student to be independent and confident on math.

Paying for tutor is the investment for students, even more so, is the investment of student's time. It is all worth the effort to search for the best tutor possible.

I say it with confidence and sincerely, that you will be very pleased if you choose me to tutor.

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

I've recently tutored students for math SAT, and I am very familiar with test, did many myself when my children taking them (they all had full scores)

Calculus

I earned B.S. in structural engineering from best college in China and an M. E. here in US. I have tutored calculus for math major students here and received 5 star remark.

Precalculus

I have a B.S. and an M.E. in structural engineering, which require extensive math study. I am also an experienced tutor in all math subjects. With my strong math and engineering background in China combined with experience tutoring students here for all subjects of math, I produce the best results for students.

Regents

I have a BS in structural engineering and ME in civil engineering. My NYSTC CST math 004 score is 289 (taken on April 20, 2013). AS substitute math teacher, I taught classes on preparing Regents.
