Associate Degree (Math)
I have been a tutor, a homeschool teacher and a classroom teacher for more than 25 years and have the privilege of teaching and helping many students from elementary to high school excel in their academics. My favorite subjects to teach are Math, English and Mandarin. I can also coach on SAT and ACT as I have helped my oldest daughter get a pretty high score for her ACT and her SAT. I enjoy my job as a tutor because I truly enjoy helping the students reach their goals.

Ting is just the kind of teacher I was looking for. She is patient, caring, reliable and dedicated. She is very knowledgeable and is teaching my son some really great new ways to solve math problems. She is perhaps one of the best math tutors around. It feels great to know your child is in good hands and with a really dedicated teacher/tutor.
My son has been going to Mrs. Ting for approximately 9 months I can see a huge improvement in his attitude towards school and his grades. Mrs Ting makes learning fun by coming up with creative ways for my son to grasp concepts that he may struggle with and enjoy learning . I also love that she focuses on preparing my son for new concepts that he will learn at school. If you need a tutor that cares about your child and is able to cover all subjects I would highly recommend Mrs.Ting.
She always good when it comes to my son. She is very patient and have a lot of information to give
Ting is very thorough and patient with her student. My son actually looks forward to his sessions with her.
Great progress & my daughter really enjoys
her tutoring time. She's doing great. Can't wait until my baby reads her 1st book by herself. Mrs Ting is doing great to get her to that point.
Thank you, Jennifer, for your kind comments and words. I can't wait to see Brooky read her 1st book, too!! She has made some amazing progress and it has been great working with her. She is bright and intelligent and I know she will do very well in her academics.
Ting is a splendid teacher. My 13 year old son has improved in reading, vocabulary, and writing by leaps and bounds. She is very pace oriented. She offers a variety of fun and educational lessons. She is very lively and draws the student in to the lesson.
Since my son has started tutoring with Mrs. Ting he has made great progress with his reading. He is has begun reading small books in less than two weeks of tutoring. I am very happy with the tutoring and his progression in reading.
My daughter was very excited with her first lesson and is looking forward to her next meeting. She is very happy with her tutor. She hope Mrs. Ting will help her get on Honor at end of school year!!! She very happy!!! Excellent job Mrs. Ting! Thanks for fitting her in your lesson plan.
My son liked Ting instantly. He was acting a little shy, after we left he said she is going to be a good tutor mom. I said,that is great! Ting was very patient and very interactive with my son. Actually, my son is looking forward to his next session. I see great things happening and it was only day one.
She is very patient, friendly and dedicated to my daughter. She is also very knowledgeable, my daughter is reading and comprehending much better. Thank you Mrs. Ting for your time.
Thank you so much, Mrs. Ting for your patient and time with my daughter, she is improving her reading, grammar and conversation. We will buy credit later soon to follow her classes. MUCHAS GRACIAS! BENDICIONES!
We have been using Ting for about three months now. Our grandchildren are a girl ten and a boy fourteen. They needed brushing up in math and boy did she start right in and found out what they needed to understand math from the basics through Algebra. We are tickled to have such a good tutor who really cares about their math skills as well as their unique personalities. If you're looking for a personable and capable tutor, then Ting is it. We couldn't be happier!
Ting is an absolute gem of a teacher. She is thorough, patient, and a joy to learn under. Not only will she teach you the language but also about the culture and the history of it. I highly recommend her.
Ting is a true professional when it comes to tutoring. My son is in the 2nd grade he never took the time to read a book without me having to assist or help him. Since he have been tutoring with Ting he is reading books on his own. Ting has only had 3 visits with my son, I can see the improvement in his school work.
Wonderful job preparing my child for Chinese final. Very organized and prepared. Had reviewed material ahead of time. Focused, encouraging, fun, excellent tutor. Had no difficulty convincing son to return for second session! Provided quiet area in home for session without distractions. Very prompt in all communications!
Have now had the wonderful opportunity to work with Ting for several months. She has been consistently prepared, creative, focused, and fun. Has done a wonderful job tutoring both my children with mandarin. They look forward to each session. Exceptional job!!
Very good teacher very patient and the time she is with my son she utilizes all resources to get him to read well. He listens and remembers what she says.
Mrs. Ting is an very patient and creative tutor. Just in the 4 sessions she has had with my 5 year old son has made a big difference in his life. For example after the second session for home work she gave him two books to read at home. He read both books out loud while she was telling me how the hour long session went. He loves going too tutoring because she makes learning fun. Keep up the GREAT WORK Mrs. Ting.
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.
Algebra 1 is where you learn how to solve linear equations, graphing, writing equations given 2 points, exponents and exponential functions, graphing quadratic functions, solving polynomial equations in factored forms, rational equations and functions, Radicals and connections to Geometry, and the use of variables to solve equations.
I can teach Chinese from elementary to intermediate level (junior high). I have studied Chinese up to my Associate Degree.
I have an associate degree in education. I have taught as a substitute teacher in a public school from level K to 6th and I have tutored students in all subjects up to 12th grade. I have homeschooled our 2 daughters for the past 10 years. I have more than 25 years of teaching experience.
Elementary Math is a matter of understanding basic number patterns. Once you understand those patterns, you can solve most of the problems with ease. I grew up loving Math because I come from a family of engineers. My brothers love Math and they taught me a lot, although I did not pursue engineering but teaching. Adding, Subtracting, Multiplying and Dividing are the basic skills in Elementary Math. It applies to single digit, 2, 3, 4, etc digit numbers and fractions and decimals. Once the rules and steps are understood and memorized, then you will see how Math is easy and yet so intricate.
I have 25 years of teaching experience and I have taught ESL in Taiwan, Singapore and Arlington, TX. I have taught in schools, tutored many students and also homeschooled our daughters. I have taught ESL to students from Taiwan, Japan, Korea and Egypt. I would teaching English to foreign students.
I have years of experience in teaching phonics to many students and also our own children. Once you get the phonics down, you can start to sounding out words and reading.
Reading is the foundation to all learning and without learning the skills of how to read, it would be difficult to make out how words should sound. It is a form of communication between the writer and reader and knowing how to read is such a key to all knowledge.
First of all, there are the 44 basic phonic sounds to the English alphabet, followed by blends, dipthongs, digraphs, etc. Then there are the sight words and some words do not follow the same rules. So, the child needs to be taught how to read 'ph' like an 'f', and 'g' has 2 sounds, a 'g' as in 'gurgle' and a 'j' as in 'gauge'. I use a specialized set of books to teach Reading, combined with Emergent Readers and then Graded Readers. The child will naturally want to read more and more books and finally novels or chapter books. I have taught many children how to read with great success.
Study Skills are very necessary for academic success in education. There many different study skills. For memorizing, we can do rote learning, reading over notes and rewriting. We can also use acronyms and mnemonics to memorize different Math and Science rules. For example, "Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally" for the steps of Math operations.
Then there is the use of study outlines like tree structures, spider diagrams, mind map to link concepts together. With outlines, the child can learn to summarize his materials for key points in the information.
Another very helpful study style which I like using is the visual imagery where the child draws diagrams or pictures as they read the material to guide their understanding. This is great for visual learners.
Besides these methods, the child can also use the preview, question, read, study and test method, where he or she could write out questions from the headings of the topic and follow the steps to write out questions, read to find the information and so forth.
The overall study skill that is a foundation for good study habits are time management, motivation, avoiding procrastination, sleep, good diet and exercise.
Different children have different learning styles as some are more kinesthetic, visual, audio and oral to varying degrees. As I observe the child and study their learning styles, I would be more able to trim and tailor the material to suit the child's needs. As most education philosophers believe that the best is to use all the senses to teach a child the material whether it may be Reading, Math or Science. With more than 25 years of teaching experience, I have been using these different methods to help my students be successful in his or her education pursuits.
