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, 59 lessons with Ping
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
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.J.j., 1 lesson with Ping
He is excellent Calculus tutor. My son felt his confidence on Calculus improve greatly ever since 1st lesson and increasing with each lesson. He has been very happy with how much his lessons are helping him. Also, Ping has been great with communicating with me. He answers my messages very quickly, which I greatly appreciate.James, 25 lessons with Ping
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.LIYONG, 6 lessons with Ping

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.Regina, 2 lessons with Ping
Helpful and Knowledgeable Math Tutor
Ping helped my brother with various math classes. He is a savior. Very prompt and direct with his schedule, which leads to an easy scheduling process, a pleasant step up from others. He is very knowledgeable in a vast array of math subjects. He creates a good environment to learn and really cares that you are progressing. He lays out what steps will need to be taken to be successful in your class. Also, his overall willingness to help with homework, labs, and practice problems are second to none. He is an excellent tutor.Rose, 17 lessons with Ping
