About Jin


Bio

Hi, I'm Jin! I love working with students of all ages and backgrounds and look forward to getting to know you! I've worked with students from pre-school to high school (ages 4-18) for over three years and adapt my methods to each student's preferences and areas of focus. I've tutored in Geometry, Algebra I and II, Pre-Calc, SAT/ACT Math, English (both for native speakers and for ESL), US History, and Chinese.

Hi, I'm Jin! I love working with students of all ages and backgrounds and look forward to getting to know you! I've worked with students from pre-school to high school (ages 4-18) for over three years and adapt my methods to each student's preferences and areas of focus. I've tutored in Geometry, Algebra I and II, Pre-Calc, SAT/ACT Math, English (both for native speakers and for ESL), US History, and Chinese.

I've worked with young students in elementary math, English, history, science, and Chinese as well as having story times and Bible studies. For my younger kiddos, I like to come up with fun and inventive ways to learn such as memory and word games and interactive notebooks and incorporate art, music, and visuals into lessons. For my older students, I generally request some sample school materials so I can make study plans, match my lessons to the student's school curriculum, and find appropriate links/videos for students to watch on their own time. In each lesson, I offer students an opportunity to watch as I approach problems, then give them progressively harder questions as we prepare for assignments and exams. Of course, not all of our time will be dedicated to doing practice problems out of a workbook; I like to keep things inclusive and interesting by infusing discussion questions, virtual simulations and applets, videos, and hands-on projects.

As for my favorite subjects, I've always enjoyed Math, English, and History. Math is one of my greatest passions! In high school, I received perfect scores on the math sections of both the SAT and ACT and was the valedictorian of a graduating class of 500. I've also spent many years travelling around Texas to compete in math competitions, winning numerous medals. I know that math can be a tricky subject, but I'm here with you every step of the way to help you piece the puzzle together!

As for English, I grew up reading novels like Harry Potter and Percy Jackson. I absolutely love exploring fantasy and sci-fi novels and highly enjoyed classes in high school a

Excellent Tutor

She was very patient and friendly with my daughter. She was easily able to identify her weaknesses and give tips on how to improve. I was very pleased :)

Jin is an amazing tutor! She is very thorough and goes through everything in great detail to help you understand it fully.

Jin taught and helped me in various topics of math, such as geometry, pre-cal, algebra, trigonometry, probability, and more. She makes conversation and asks how you are doing before the start of each session, which was really nice and thoughtful. I really enjoyed having the sessions because not only is she very easy to talk to, she checks in on how you are doing and offers a lot of insight. She gave helpful advice and numerous strategies on how to attack the tests on the ACT.

wonderful and very patient

For our 2nd one on one, my son was pretty hyper and not attentive at first. He feels very comfortable by now. Jin was so patient and brought him back into to the lesson. Thank you Jin.
