"You can teach a student a lesson for a day; but if you can teach him to learn by creating curiosity, he will continue the learning process as long as he lives." ~Clay P. Bedford

I earned a Ph.D. doing Genetics research at the University of Utah. Knowledge is always fascinating to me: a concept is not just a concept, it has an infinite number of aspects to be understood and appreciated. Any simple idea, be it Math, Physics, Biology or Chinese, is interconnected with all other ideas through...

"You can teach a student a lesson for a day; but if you can teach him to learn by creating curiosity, he will continue the learning process as long as he lives." ~Clay P. Bedford

I earned a Ph.D. doing Genetics research at the University of Utah. Knowledge is always fascinating to me: a concept is not just a concept, it has an infinite number of aspects to be understood and appreciated. Any simple idea, be it Math, Physics, Biology or Chinese, is interconnected with all other ideas through humanity and history. At the deepest level, all knowledge is connected, and the network gives us a glimpse of the Truth.

In addition to my degree, I have a teaching licence for the State of Utah for Integrated Sciences and Biology. I have taught middle school science and AP Biology in classroom settings. When I tutor, however, the goal is to help my students become independent quickly. I love to burn my bridges by giving you a pair of wings as soon as possible; because there is no telling how high and how far you can go.

I have worked with students ranging from kindergarteners to college graduates preparing for GRE. If you think I can help you, drop me a line.

Thank you for reading! And Happy learning!

Public Speaking

I have been an active member for Toastmasters International for a long time. I have completed the basic manual and earned both Competent Communicator and Competent Leader certificates. In club meetings, I frequently evaluate other member's speeches and developed good listening skills and recommendation styles. In addition, I am a very logical thinker, I look for logic flow in developing ideas. This helps me compose rhetorical arguments. On the other hand, my observation of successful speeches over time cultivates my intuition on how a speaker can take advantage of his/her strength to develop rapport with the audience.

Chinese,

Chinese

I am a Chinese from mainland China, left the country in my 20s. I am very good at reading, writing and conversational Chinese. These skills are hard to lose. Also I am teaching my son and husband Chinese at home. Being able to explain and make sense those Chinese characters and expressions helps me to teach. The most effective way of teaching is when the material makes sense. I am great with children and they like me a lot. This helps in a tutoring situation as well.

History

Homeschool

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

Most people are visual thinkers. My approach to Algebra is very visual. I use size, shape, and symmetry to represent math equations and problems. Once the problem is fully understood, the answer becomes straightforward. The logic behind math is simple and mathematics language is beautiful. It is fun to discover the deeper meanings of this subject.
Calculus,

Calculus

Calculus is elegant. It offers a unique perspective to simplify complex problems. I have tutored Calculus up to some topics in Cal III. Associating geometry and physics meanings to mathematical operations helps students visualizing what they are doing and how amazingly simple the system can be. It is a great tool for Physics and Computational Sciences.
Chemistry,

Chemistry

Chemistry is no mystery. Once the student understands the logic behind the math, all the operations to balance an equation or calculate stoichiometry become reasonable and require no memorization. The same goes for many other topics of Chemistry. This subject can be so much fun. If you are struggling, let me show you how you don't have to.

ACT Math,

ACT Math

ACT math is NOT tricky. It tests basic math knowledge and its applications. I have helped students improve their scores at ACT math by analyzing their errors. Being aware of their weaknesses is the first major step towards better scores. Once the students notice their own patterns, they can avoid making the same mistakes in the future and perform much better at the test.

ACT Science,

ACT Science

ACT Science tests only very limited scientific knowledge. Once those are in place, the test is essentially reading skill test. Students need to be able to find information in tables, graphs, and paragraphs first. After that, students are required to analyze the logic behind the phenomena. The more difficult questions are inferring from the knowledge and make predictions. Correct thought processes can cut down time and improve accuracy for all of those problems. It is important to learn and practice them ahead of the test date.

Genetics,

Genetics

I earned a Ph.D. doing Genetics research at the U. Genetics is a test on how well a student can reason based on a set of criteria. It usually starts with very simple rules, with the advancement of learning, more complex rules are introduced. The simple rules are the key to Genetics, the complex rules can be explained as variations of the simple ones. In a nutshell, Genetics is very elegant. I love the subject and know it better than the back of my hands. Let me show you how everything fits perfectly in Genetics as a completed Sudoku puzzle.
Physical Science,

Physical Science

Classical Physics is pure logic. Once the problem is properly dissected into constants and variables, the answer usually is quite straightforward. Yet the skill to dissect a problem seems elusive. I teach classical Physics by doing thought experiments, sometimes real ones when they are not too explosive. Bringing everyday phenomena into lessons help students to make connections and understand better. Naturally, better understanding translates into better problem solving techniques.
Physiology,

Physiology

Human body is a fascinating 'machine'. The principles of Physics and Chemistry rule the machine yet the internal regulation does wonders the ordinary machines can't even dream of, even if they could dream. The key to mastering this complex system is to figure out what is the major force at any certain situation. I can help you simplify the system so that it makes sense. I had an offer to teach Human Physiology to Pre Nursing students at Westminster college. Eventually I had to turn it down because of personal reasons. It would be fun to be able to really teach it.

Parker, 6 lessons with Heng

Makes hard things seem easier!

Heng helped me to understand the material based on the way I learn. I am only sad I didn't find her sooner. Excited to continue learning from her to successfully complete my business stats class.

Kennedy, 5 lessons with Heng

Most helpful tutor I've had

I met with Heng to get help with my statistics and probability course. She presented the information in easy to understand manner and presented new ways of contextualizing the concepts. Heng was also very patient with me and willing to go over fundamental principles that I did not have a firm grasp on.

Jonathan, 19 lessons with Heng

Amazing Teacher

Heng X was very patient with me and helped me when I was struggling or didn’t know how to do something. Was very kind about it and didn’t make me feel stupid that I didn’t know something. I am very happy that I get to work with her! She is amazing and very kind hearted!

Heng is truly amazing!

My son truly adores Heng. She is the most amazing tutor. My son loves that she is so patient and kind in her words. My son is not afraid to try a new problem because he knows she will not snap at him but gently Guide him to understand what his doing wrong. This kind of method makes by son eager to learn. I must say I adore her to!!! Love the way Heng teaches my son new math skills. Heng is so amazing she helps him understand the break down of the math problem! I am so amazing with Heng gentle nature in teaching she truly makes learning fun for my son.

Sue , 17 lessons with Heng

Simply outstanding

I only wish I was introduced to her before now. She was simply amazing in her ability to break down complex materials. I plan to continuously work with her and recommend her to others. Thank you once again!

Sara, 1 lesson with Heng

Amazing!!!

Amazing tutor for my college level genetics class. She went through an extremely difficult problem regarding fly genetics very thoroughly and accurately. After less than an hour with her, I understood the problem. I recommend her 100% and am looking forward to more time with her for later homework problems.
