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.

Very knowledgeable and encouraging

My daughter had lost her confidence in math and he restored her confidence. Excellent teacher and I wish all math teachers were like him. I only wish that I had come across him earlier. A good teacher can make all the difference and Mr. Ping has already made a big difference in my daughter’s confidence and helped her tremendously. After 2 sessions only she feels that she has learnt more than in the last whole semester.

Zainab, 7 lessons with Ping

Very knowledgeable and great at explaining

My son learned a lot of him. Calculus BC is no joke but he really helps make the concepts more understandable. He is quick to respond to his messages and makes the process easy and smooth.

Samira, 7 lessons with Ping

5 Star Instructor

Thoughts are well organized, judging from the problems demonstrated. Ping makes sure his student understands each concept in theory and then he would show the steps of work on how to solve a problem. To emphasize the fresh knowledge of new topics, he assigns homework that requires the skills of problem solving covered in the session. Just made an appointment for more classes with Ping.

Sally, 4 lessons with Ping

An experienced and patient tutor

Mr. Ping helped my son review the basic properties of all Precalculus parent functions and also reviewed the procedures to graph a function by first identifying the parent function then transform it by following the transformation rules. He is very patient, hands-on, and brings the best out of a student.

Very helpful and knowledgeable tutor

Helps me understand problems and goes through them step by step to ensure full understanding. Very knowledgeable and always knows the best way to walk me step by step through them.

Abby, 21 lessons with Ping

very patient and excellent teacher.

great tutor.highly recommended for anyone having difficulty with calculus.My student scored a 100% after just one hour of tutoring.will definitely reach out again if needed.

Mridula, 12 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.
