About Yanping

Do you simply not get what's going on in your subject? In any subject, there are usually some quick rules of thumb to get by, but then the rules of thumb explode into a thousand rules. Right now, you're trying to do your homework, finding a tutor. Isn't that hard? Let me simplify this whole process for you.

For ALL age ranges, I have regularly helped students go from survival mode to thriving mode. I am interdisciplinary and love teaching both elementary school subjects and college subjects, but I especially thrive in teaching organic chemistry, regular chemistry, and biology, calculus and physics.

I grok well with students with learning challenges, such as ADHD (diagnosed or undiagnosed). I am a graduate of the University of Virginia with a degree in Biochemistry, with 36 credits in chemistry, 29 in biology, 27 in physics, 13 in the social sciences, 28 credits in other math, science and engineering courses. My second major and minor were physics and biology respectively. During my time at the University of Virginia, I was member of the "80s series," an accelerated honors chemistry track.

If you come describe your problem to me, I may be even be able to offer your first lesson free of charge, so that you'll come back for more.

Hi, I'm sorry for my lateness, I was very sick and my first day of work was the day after the lesson. MTA also had many delays, shutdowns and reroutes across several lines. I didn't cancel out of compassion for your situation as you said you had an exam the next day. I worked to resolve confusion by working on concepts (derivatives and critical points).

I'm sorry if I seemed unsure - I usually review material for concepts rather than prepare explicit solutions. Semester 1 physics problems are things I am far unsure about how to do, as my intuition is very strong, rather my goal is to develop this intuition in the student. There is only so much I can accomplish in one hour.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Biology

I graduated from the University of Virginia with a degree in biochemistry. I worked in a neuroscience lab for two years, helped teach an Evolutionary Biology lab course, and have worked with cellular transport in an internship with the Department of Energy. I am currently a biotechnologist on an immunoassay prototype development team for a major R&D company.

Calculus

I have a bachelors' degree in Biochemistry. I scored the highest score (5) on my AP Calculus exam, and obtained As in both Honors Calculus II and III at UVa. I have worked in a neuroscience lab for two years and used calculus principles to drive my analysis of experimental data. I am currently a biotechnologist on an immunoassay prototype development team for a major R&D company.

Chemistry

I received my B.S. Biochemistry from the University of Virginia in 2013.

I worked in a neuroscience lab for two years, and completed a summer internship in cell biology at the Department of Energy working with gold nanorod probes and chemical functionalization.

I scored 247/250 on my Honors Organic Chemistry II final. I am currently a biotechnologist on an immunoassay prototype development team for a major R&D company.

Genetics

I hold a bachelors' degree in Biochemistry from UVA, where I scored an A in Genetics and 100% on a notoriously challenging genetics midterm. I worked two years in a Drosophila neuroscience lab, where we continuously genetically engineered knockouts and novel crosses. I am currently a biotechnologist on an immunoassay prototype development team for a major R&D company.

Organic Chemistry

I have a bachelors in Biochemistry (2013) from the University of Virginia; I was fully immersed in the accelerated chemistry track. I scored 247/250 for my organic chemistry II final under Richard Sundberg, coauthor (with Francis Carey) of an organic chemistry textbook nationally used in graduate programs, and have also studied inorganic (organometallic) chemistry. I am a currently a biotechnologist on an immunoassay prototype development team for a major R&D company.

Physics

I graduated with a minor in physics from the University of Virginia (my major was Biochemistry) in 2013. I scored a 5 on AP Physics C: Mechanics and a 4 on AP Physics C: Electricity and Magnetism in high school. My knowledge of calculus-based physics continues to inform much of my interdisciplinary research and experimental design. I am currently a biotechnologist on an immunoassay prototype development team for a major R&D company.
