Now taking new students for Precalculus, Calculus 1 (AP), SAT, GRE and Mandarin.
I am 38 years old and live at lower east side Manhattan. I am a patient teacher and love teaching. I have a strong math and statistics background with an MS in applied math and a Ph.D. in Biostatistics. I was born in Beijing and speaks standard Chinese. Starting as a private tutor when I was only in college, I successfully helped many high school seniors excel in China's college exam, allowing them to get into their first choice university.

After I came to the US, I became a graduate teaching assistant at Vanderbilt, the "Harvard of the South", and began teaching classes for undergraduate students, doing recitation for them every morning to help them review material.

I firmly believe that students must be actively engaged in the learning process to master and come to own the material, whether they are still learning fundamental algebra or trying to ace their AP calculus course. That is why I give hints and ask questions to lead students into finding solutions on their own rather than giving the solution right away. From my experience, students thrive from exploring the concept themselves rather than robotically memorizing, but not fully comprehending, a concept that will soon slip out of their minds as fast as they remembered it.

Knowledgeable Tutor

My teen enjoyed the Mandarin lesson with Lei. Not only is she knowledgeable but she can also teach so the lesson went well. We do not speak the language so having someone fluent in Mandarin is godsend. I wish we started with Lei back in June and over summer!

Pre-calc

She is patient, knowledgeable and a wonderful tutor! Knows how to break-down concepts so I can understand them! Looking forward to scheduling more sessions in the future.

Samantha, 2 lessons with Lei

Knowledgeable, kind and extremely helpful!

Lei is an incredible tutor. I learned more with her in 1.5 hours than I have all semester. I look forward to scheduling more sessions. I wish I had found her sooner!
