Western Washington University
University of Arkansas - Fayetteville (Master's)
I love teaching! It's my passion and I hope to exercise this passion by meeting some of you! I teach most effectively through one-on-one and group interactions. Thus, tutoring is my specialty when it comes to teaching. The subjects I can tutor in are Math and Physics because I have a Bachelor and Master degree in Physics from Western Washington University and University of Arkansas (Fayetteville). During my undergraduate and graduate years at those schools, I taught beginning level physics courses for 7 years and enjoyed it. Ever since I finished school, I started tutoring and have been happily doing it for 3 years. With this level of education and experience, I can tutor from elementary level to graduate level.
In addition to my physics/math and teaching background, I have computer skills ranging from Microsoft Office to troubleshooting common computer problems and to installing computer peripherals. So I can also tutor in general computers.
As a final note, I am fun, supportive, and patient and I hope to make your learning experience a fun one. I am willing to adjust my teaching style so that it aligns with your learning style because I want my students to get the most out of me. I love teaching!

Hsiao is the best tutor. Not only is he knowledgeable, he's patient, kind, and great at making sure the student understands. He's extremely reliable and available.
Very good explanation of the complexities of calculus. He showed other ways of approaching difficult problems and made it possible for me to grasp what was going on. I feel that college calculus will not be such a big issue!
Hsiao was great. My son connected with him and understood his instructions. He helped my son catch up on all of his missing homework and pass his algebra class. I will definitely request his services again. Thanks again!
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.
I know Calculus can be a scary subject but it can be a fun one because it has many real life applications. Give me a chance to help you appreciate Calculus so that you will enjoy it and have fun with it. In fact, I heard that those who were nervous about Calculus came to love it as they progressed into it.
When I took a math class on Differential Equation (DiffEq), I thought it was easier to understand than Calculus. In this DiffEq class, I learned about how to solve first-order differential equations that describe systems such as population growth and the harmonic oscillator. These differential equations even involve imaginary numbers and eigenvalues and eigenvectors. I came to appreciate those after I took this class and I enjoyed it! I hope to make your DiffEq class a similar experience.
Physics is my specialty because I have a Bachelor and Master degree in Physics. While studying, I worked as a Teaching Assistant where I taught introductory physics laboratory courses. The lab courses I taught were Newtonian Mechanics, Electricity & Magnetism (my favorite!), Geometric Optics, and General Physics. Teaching these courses for a total of seven years during my undergraduate and graduate career combined gives me the confidence needed to tutor someone like you in Physics!
