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...

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

Great Tutor

John is very knowledgeable in the subjects of math and physics. I highly recommend him for tutoring. His explanations have helped me to improve my grade. He not only understands the material, but also the reasoning necessary to engage with the problem in the first place.

Aaron, 6 lessons with John

Very knowledgeable and responsible.

Has helped me to increase my test scores in pre calculus and has helped me to understand the concepts better! He is a great teacher.

Pam, 9 lessons with John
