About Ping

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.

I have very extensive experience in teaching and tutoring various subjects in mathematics. While at University of Houston, I taught college algebra, calculus I and calculus II for three years. I have been tutoring math on the side for the last several years while working as a software engineer. It all started when I was horrified to find that my daughter (at the time in 5th grade) got wrong concepts from her math teacher at school and I decided to tutor her, to protect her from incompetent teachers. Over the years, friends have asked me to tutor their children. 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 explaining clearly very difficult concepts, giving them several angles, and making them really understand.

Master's degree in mathematics, three years of experience in teaching math at college level, and seven years of tutoring.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Algebra 1

All of the young students who I tutored became very proficient in math. Some of my students have achieved perfect scores on the math portion of the SAT exam. One of them won first prize in collegiate level math competitions. They went on to some of the best colleges such as Stanford University, Rice University, University of Texas at Austin, etc.

Algebra 2

All of the young students who I tutored became very proficient in math. Some of my students have achieved perfect scores on the math portion of the SAT exam. One of them won first prize in collegiate level math competitions. They went on to some of the best colleges such as Stanford University, Rice University, University of Texas at Austin, etc.

Calculus

I worked as a teaching assistant for calculus 1, 2 and 3 at University of Houston while I was working on my master's degree in mathematics. In recent years I have tutored many high school and college students at all levels of calculus. I am very familiar with this subject. My strength is I can explain difficult concepts from different angles. I can design practice problems on the fly to help my students to reinforce certain concepts.

Geometry

I am very familiar with geometry. Through years of teaching I have come up with ways to explain the tricky concepts from different perspectives. And I am able to come up with practice problems on the fly to help my student drill and reinforce important concepts.

Precalculus

I taught College Algebra and tutored calculus 1, 3 and 3 at University of Houston while I was working on master's degree in mathematics. In the past four years I have tutored multiple high school students Precalculus.

Probability

Probability is one of my favorite subjects. I understand how confusing it can be when it comes to solving problems that involves permutation, combination, event space and sample space etc. Through years of teaching I have come up with ways to explain the tricky concepts from different perspectives. And I am able to come up with practice problems on the fly to help my student drill and gain deeper understanding in this area.

Trigonometry

I am very familiar with trigonometry. I understand how daunting it can be for beginners to learn the many definitions, formulae and identities involved in trigonometry. Through years of teaching I have come up with ways to explain the tricky concepts from different perspectives. And I am able to come up with practice problems on the fly to help my student drill and reinforce important concepts.

Great Calc III tutor!

My high school senior, who has always been a very good math student, took Calc III through Collin College online. For the first time ever, she struggled with a math class. Ping helped her understand the concepts being taught and how to approach each problem and work through to the correct solution. His help was invaluable! And he goes above and beyond. He spent time after her lessons working
