About John

Dear students and parents,

I am very happy to have this chance to help you personally on some of the subjects you don't grasp well in the classroom or refine/enhance your problem solving skills. First please let me briefly introduce myself.

I graduated from Tsinghua University, the top university of China (like MIT in US), with a Bachelor's degree in Physics. Then I received a fellowship from University of Rochester and earned my Graduate degree in Optics there. As an all A student since the childhood and especially good at Mathematics and Physics, I always enjoyed working with other students and help them not only solve the problem but fully understand the subject.

When tutoring a student, my principle is to be patient at first. Every student has a different way of thinking, as a tutor you have to understand how they think and what makes them to come to the wrong answer. Sometimes the student's logic is all right but just made a mistake in the number, you need to give them credit for that. Sometimes the student may come up with the correct answer, but they don't use the best method, in that case you can provide with them more ways of solving the same problem and thus enhance their skills. Almost all students are grateful to my tutoring method like that.

I started tutoring ten years ago and have tutored students from primary high school kids to college students. The subjects I tutored include Algebra, Calculus, ACT Math, SAT Math, Geometry, Physics and some related college courses. Although I am quite familiar with these subjects, every time I started tutoring a new student, I will chat and discuss with the student and parent about the student's school history and study habit and determine a study plan for tutoring accordingly. As one student once put on the card after I finished tutoring with him: 'thank you so much for tutoring! You are like a personal coach for me!'

I hope I will meet you soon!

Yours Sincerely

John

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.

Chinese

I was born and China and Chinese is my native tongue. I graduated from Tsinghua University in Beijing China, a top University in China. I am a all A student since childhood and like to communicate and tutor other people in the school subjects. I have tutored some American students in their Chinese learning and greatly enhanced their language skills.

Discrete Math

I have graduated from Tsinghua Univ. in Beijing China (like MIT in U.S.) with a BS and MS in Physics. Then I got a fellowship from Univ. of Rochester and got my PhD in Optics there. I took a comprehensive math courses including Discrete math. I'm very good at the subject myself and am experienced in tutoring it.

Mechanical Engineering

I have graduated from Tsinghua University, a top university in China (like MIT in the US). I majored in optical engineering for my bachelor's and studied many mechanical engineering courses. I then got a fellowship from the Institute of Optics at the University of Rochester and earned my PhD in Optics there. After graduation, I worked in the industry as an opto-mechanical engineer and gained a lot engineering experience.

A Best Science and Technology Teacher

John Y. is the best Science Subject Tutor we met. He came from the No.1 Science and Technology university at China Beijing: Tshing Hua University. That University only accept No.1 students from each province(State here) at China. But each province of China has almost four times more students than here. That university's position is similar as the position as MIT at USA. Anyone can be accepted by t
