About Stephanie

Hello! My name is Stephanie, a recent graduate of New York University majoring in Economics and minoring in Mathematics. I am a 22-year-old Taiwanese girl who is fluent in Mandarin. As of now, I am trying to get into graduate school to pursue my dreams of being a teacher. Even though my strong point is definitely elementary, middle, and high school mathematics, I am trying to get a degree in early childhood education. Therefore, my main focus is on elementary school students.

Ever since I was little, I had only one tutor. This tutor helped in me in every single subject. Whenever I needed help, whenever I had questions, she was there for me, to educate me and lead me on a successful students path. I was never dropped from the High Honor Roll in school. I was never at the bottom. I wanted to be like her. I wanted to help educate others. I wanted to share my knowledge with them. No matter how old, I wanted to seek anyone's inner potential and show them what they are really capable of.

For every session, I would help students on wherever they needs help on whether it's about class material, homework, tests, etc. Then, I would make up practice problems for them to do. There's nothing wrong with more practice! I participated in a program called A.I.D (Assisting Individuals with Disabilities) in Taiwan. I mainly taught first and second graders, and assisted other teachers in educating grades three through six. The duration of the program was one month. During this month, I would carefully make teaching plans every single day. What will we do tomorrow? How can I make this fun for them to understand? I will go by the students' pace. I'm very comfortable with children, accommodating to their speed of learning and encouraging them to reach their full potential. I want them to enjoy learning. I don't want them to think that it's something they HAVE to do. Elementary school students are at a prime time of learning, where they can gather up all their courage, knowledge, and creativity to shape their own future.

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.

Algebra 1

During high school, I was always one year ahead of the math curriculum of my current grade. For example, in 9th grade I was in 10th grade honors math. In 10th grade, I was in 11th grade honors math, and so on. I also scored 95+ on both the Math A Regents and Math B Regents. I also scored a 750 on the SAT Subject Tests for Mathematics Level 2.

Algebra 2

During high school, I was always one year ahead of the math curriculum of my current grade. For example, in 9th grade I was in 10th grade honors math. In 10th grade, I was in 11th grade honors math, and so on. I also scored 95+ on both the Math A Regents and Math B Regents. I also scored a 750 on the SAT Subject Tests for Mathematics Level 2.

Chinese

Ever since I was little, my parents required us to speak in Mandarin in our Taiwanese household. I started to attend Tzu Chi Chinese School when I was 3. I went every Sunday from 9am to 1pm, going through many textbooks, tests every week, and a few history lessons as well. I am now fluent in Mandarin and able to carry on any normal conversation. Reading and writing is also not a problem. I scored a 780 on my Chinese SAT II, which successfully ruled me out of the foreign language requirement at NYU. However, when I was at college, I still took a Advance Chinese and received an A- as my grade. Moreover, I attended a program called A.I.D (Assisting Individuals with Disabilities), where I taught English to elementary school students using Chinese. Therefore, I am comfortable in communicating with both languages, or using one language to teach another.

Elementary Math

I attended Shelter Rock Elementary School. I graduated top of my class and was awarded the Koebele Award, an award that recognized my exemplary commitment towards academia, arts, and aspirations. I excelled in every subject better than my classmates, especially math because I loved it!

Flute

I started to learn the flute when I was in 5th grade. In middle school, I was in both band and orchestra. In high school, I was in a more advance class of both: String Ensemble and Wind Ensemble. I tested my skills for the flute with NYSSMA (New York State School Music Association). I took level 4, 5, and 6. I took levels 5 and 6 twice so I could perfect my score and get a 100. After I was successful, I decided to push myself more and went for All-State level, in which I also scored 100. I sat in first chair for my last two years of high school, and also attended NY All County one year. I also started to learn the piccolo when I was in high school. I scored a 97 at All-State level for the Piccolo. I also played Piccolo in certain wind ensemble groups at school.

Geometry

I attended Manhasset High School. In 9th grade, I was enrolled in the 10th grade honors math class. I also scored 95+ on both the Math A Regents and Math B Regents. I also scored a 750 on the SAT Subject Tests for Mathematics Level 2.

Prealgebra

I attended Manhasset High School. In 8th grade, I was enrolled in 9th grade honors math class, and in 9th grade, I was enrolled in the 10th grade honors math class. I was always ahead one year and always enrolled in honors classes. I've never received lower than an A grade in any math class, and I also scored 95+ on both the Math A Regents and Math B Regents. I also scored a 750 on the SAT Subject Tests for Mathematics Level 2.
