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.

Best calculus tutor

Third lesson with my daughter and she is really getting complex concepts. She says Ping makes it much more clear than the examples she’s been getting in class. Thanks Ping!

Valerie, 4 lessons with Ping

Very helpful

Helped my daughter with AP calculus. I could see her whole demeanor change as she was working with him. Confidence is up and she’s ready for her exam. Thanks, Ping!

Maraline, 1 lesson with Ping

Very intelligent and teaches in understandable terminology

He taught me a lot over integration with logs and exponential functions especially. 10/10 recommend. Besides that, I went over all of the derivative rules as well. Taught me more over related rates and optimization problems as well. If you need anyone to help you wirh calculus or whatever math, Ping is very knowledgeable and knows how to keep it simple.

Easy to follow and fun to learn with

PIng has been extremely helpful with Cal II and Cal III review. He is always willing to help and is very friendly and patient to work with. I have always come out of each session feeling more confident in the material.

Noah, 11 lessons with Ping

Patient and encouraging

He had very clear explanations, reviewed questions starting from its most basic concepts, which was immensely helpful. I liked that he knew exactly which concepts I did not understand when I uploaded a set of around 20 questions I needed help with. I'm very grateful for all the help and I can already see my own improvement.

College Algebra expert

Amazing in teaching college algebra formulas, basics and foundation! Very patient and teaches well. Was able to break down concepts that have taken two to understand. I was able to learn a majority of things in 5 minutes.
