I specialize in teaching calculus. I have tutored more hours in calculus than in any other subjects! While working on my master's degree in mathematics at University of Houston, I taught calculus several times each semester for three years. My students loved my classes because I excelled at explaining clearly very difficult concepts, giving them several angles, and making them really understand. As my children went through high school and college and ran into difficulties with calculus, I came to realize how much poor teaching could do to hinder the understanding of calculus. Very often, such teaching can make the concepts more confusing than they actually are. Since then, I have tutored many high school and college students in AP calculus and Calculus I, II and III. I am happy to report that all these kids turned out to be very successful in their math studies. The overall feedback from my students is that I am good at making difficult concepts easy, complicated ideas simple, and helping them really understand.
I hold a master's degree in mathematics from University of Houston and a master's degree in electrical engineering from a prestigious university in China.

EXCEPTIONAL Calculus 2 Tutor!! Extremely Knowledgeable, flexible & patient
We've found several good tutors through Wyzant but have already "worn out" two tutors with the complexity of the subject matter. (Engineering Calculus 2) Both of the others were great but were having to spend ALOT of time prepping before lessons to make sure they were fresh on the topics. This caused too much of a demand on two tutors so here we were, looking for a 3rd tutor! Ping did NOT disappoint!!! He jumped right in and immediately got down to business with my son in a direct but very friendly manner. (He immediately put my son at ease.) Ping has a very effective way of explaining things to my son. Apparently, in Calculus, there are several ways to solve problems (Now THAT's confusing!)...but rather than complicating the session, Ping was very good at showing my son the "most direct" way to solve a problem. SOOO important!! He stepped through problems with my son and not only showed him how to do it, but he also explained the logic behind the process. This was extremely helpful. One truly unique and INVALUABLE thing that makes Ping exceptional is his ability to evaluate the needs of his pupil. He was able to quickly assess my son's competence level and identify some key areas that he needed to work on. This is unbelievably helpful to me because, having no background in Calculus, I could not pinpoint where my son was getting "caught up." Instead of just repeating the explanation again OR working through the problem a second time, Ping patiently backed up a little and helped work on some more basic concepts before moving ahead. I sent Ping a quick message sharing some of what I thought my son was struggling with and I was blown away by his intuitive, thoughtful responses. It was as if he had known my son for a long while instead of just having spent one lesson with him! Ping is more than a great tutor. Yes, he is EXTREMELY knowledgeable in Calc 2! More importantly, he has an extraordinary ability to "dig down" and identify the true needs of his student and the flexibility to change his approach on the fly to match his student's learning style!! Ping definitely goes the extra mile. We have already booked a 3rd lesson & will be booking more!!Jan, 21 lessons with Ping
Worth the time
Ping was super knowledgeable, accommodating for time being in a different time zone, and was able to see quickly where I was at and get to work. Going to use him in the future! Definitely worth the time and money.Paula, 1 lesson with Ping
Intelligent and Professional
Ping jumped right in to the lesson with so much knowledge and found out what areas my daughter needed help in. He always made sure she understood material before going to next steps. He is fantastic! Planned next lesson right after first one was done! He is very intelligent and kind.Lisa, 3 lessons with Ping
Ping taught me how to solve equations different than the teachers did, and it helped me a lot. I'm glad he's helped me thus far with my math issues. My grades are not doing so good, but I'm sure with Ping's help I'm going to end the school year with the best possible grade.Kellen, 3 lessons with Ping
I was underprepared for a calculus test, and with it being five days away I was a nervous wreck. Ping met with me every night leading up to the test, and it's amazing how much his help has instilled confidence in me that I know what I am doing. I'm coming back to Ping from here on out because math has never been more clear to me than when he explains it. I wish it was possible to give him 6 stars.Grinnan, 4 lessons with Ping
Explained well and Patient
I spent 90 minutes with Ping. He was very polite and explained Calculus II in a manner I could understand. He was also very patient with my questions. I would recommend him to anyone who need help in Math.Audrey, 4 lessons with Ping
Amazing and patient tutor
My son learned so much from Ping during their first session. Scheduled sessions for following weeks. I really appreciated the time and energy that he spent with my son. Made my son realize just how much hard work he had to do.Lisa, 2 lessons with Ping
Mr. Ping Zheng
Mr. Zheng is teaching my son’s MV calculus AP. Mr. Zheng has been making his tireless effort helping his math study to reach the advanced level. We also are very glad seeing his progress in math and problem solving skills. And most importantly, he has regained his confidence in learning math at collegiate level. Thank you so very very much, Mr. Zheng!!Lucy, 18 lessons with Ping
