About Ying

To many parents, finding a good math tutor has always been haphazard. However, there is an easy way to tell in your first meeting if you have found a really super tutor in math: picking up a difficult SAT (GMAT, GRE) math problem. If your tutor can solve it in 30 seconds or less with no mistakes, you may have found a good tutor. I will teach you or your child to solve any official SAT Math (GMAT Math* and GRE Math) problems in 30 seconds or less.

The key to increasing your speed and getting a perfect score is to develop critical thinking skills that you can use in your lifetime. When you learn to solve one problem quickly, I will help you learn to solve a new problem quickly too. This is because I accentuate looking at the problems in different ways, thinking in different ways, and then solving them in the fastest and most accurate way among the available methods. I will also show you the connections among seemingly different problems so that you can easily use the same strategies to solve different problems.

Another important element in achieving the high speed in problem-solving is the correct habits you form in each every step of the problem solving process. This is crucial in solving challenging problems. Whether your child needs help to excel in Math Olympiad, Johns Hopkins SCAT, SSAT, ISEE, PSAT, SAT Math, or simply to do better in her/his math class at school, I would provide the same highest quality services and take the most scrupulous care your child deserves with my master’s degree in math, a perfect score in GRE Math, college teaching experience, and exclusive strategies developed from many years of teaching and tutoring.

I have tutored the students ranging from sixth graders to graduate students including the top students at such prestigious schools as Cornell and NYU; the students ranging from the special needs to the math competition participants. While many of my students had 770 to 800 on the SAT Math, all my students who took the SAT Math II received perfect score of 800.

Your special child deserves the best, especially in math tutoring, because once a child forms a bad habit in doing math, it is hard to break it. Furthermore, you will get unbeatable results. Contact me today for any questions you may have. You will be surprised at the bargain you find once you meet with me, which is not only measured by the rate per hour, but also by the score improvements per hour of tutoring and the correct math habits your child acquires.

* There are a couple of GMAT math questions that took me a little more than 30 seconds to solve.

My son attends a very academically rigorous high school. He is taking the Honors Geometry Math course this year, and wanted some help with strategies, and speed, to prepare for the final exam. I had hired two different retired high school math teachers, one of whom took approx 40 minutes to figure out a question, the other of whom couldn't do the questions at all. Ying has no problem doing any
