About Juan

Originally from China, I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics from Beijing University and a Master of Science degree in Computer Science from Washington State University. I have tutored students in the areas of mathematics, computer science, and Mandarin Chinese.

I believe that understanding concepts is the key to learning any subject. My method is to help students understand the basic concepts from first principles and then have them practice by applying those concepts. To enhance this learning procedure I will give students a sufficient amount of repetition of these applications. I try to anticipate students' needs and tailor my tutoring to meet their individual goals.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Chinese

I am a native speaker originally from China. I was Chinese School principal for a year. I also taught Chinese at that school and have tutored youth and adult students. Consistent practice is what I emphasize for learning Chinese. That practice will include memorizing, reading, writing, listening and speaking. I generally ask students to plan their time for each section of the practice. For instance one can dedicate as little as 15 minute a day for reading. The goal is to do it for 15 minute every day. I also ask students to make their own flash cards by hand writing the characters or phrases with Pinyin and translations. I believe that one can learn more by doing. I am here to help students achieve their individual goals.

Computer Science

I have graduated with a Master's degree in Computer Science at Washington State University. Since then I have worked as a Systems Administrator at WSU for the last 15 years. I have been tutoring students at both high school and college levels. I believe that computer skills cannot be learned without doing it. So I always make up small exercises that applies the concepts and theory so students can really "see" what they have been taught. I am confident that my educational background and continuing teaching and learning in the computer field makes me a qualified tutor for Computer Science.
