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, 62 lessons with Ping

Ping is the best!
Ping has taught Calculus dozens of times, and is a Master. He explains fundamental concepts upfront so students acquire a comprehensive and holistic understanding of the material. He is calm and patient. My daughter went from getting Cs in precalc to getting a 97 on the final in 5 sessions. There were a lot of a-ha moments in that process. Now, Ping is tutoring her in Calculus in preparation for the AP Calc AB exam. Cannot say enough good things about this tutor.Kelly, 39 lessons with Ping

Patient and helpful
My daughter is taking college level calc 2 and is struggling with some of the concepts. Ping stated that the problems were complex and that he was a little rusty with calc 2 as he has been primarily tutoring calc 1 for the last several months. Nevertheless, he was able to solve all of the problems and teach them in a way that my daughter could understand the steps. There was one problem they didn’t get to due to time and Ping went ahead and solved it later in the day and sent it to my daughter to study. My daughter will definitely go back to Ping for help before her final.Susie, 1 lesson with Ping
