About Charles Chiaho

I have ten years of tutoring experience. I've always been told I am good at explaining hard materials into easier and understandable concepts. Parents think that I have good patiences with students. I graduated from University of Washington with an Electrical Engineering degree. I started tutoring my friends and classmates in high school and found the passion in teaching. With having good feedback from the people I tutored, I've developed a stronger teaching skill as years go by. Being influenced by my mom, a high school teacher, I've comprehended her teaching skills while with my observations of my teacher and professors' lectures, therefore developed them into my own strength. I truly believe that there's a method in teaching, and I am confident that I can provide the help you will need. My tutoring experience includes Mandarin Chinese, math, Java, statistics, chemistry and physics.

****Math****
I have the ability to walk my students through each problem step by step to improve their understandings in the process of solving math problems. I am able to identify and reinforce any important concept my students are not familiar with, as well as help them to learn/refresh math solving techniques. In high school, I’ve scored a 5 on the AP Calculus BC test. In college, I’ve completed 6 math courses at the University of Washington, including the calculus series.

****Mandarin Chinese****
I am a native Chinese speaker from Taiwan. I have the ability to teach you all levels of Mandarin Chinese including literature and ancient poetry. I am not only fluent in Mandarin Chinese, but also in English which help me teach more effectively. I provide a systematic way to help my student memorize vocabularies (Simplified & Traditional) as well as different teaching methods according to students' needs and level of proficiency.I believe that language isn't a hard subject to learn; however, having the environment is one of the key points. I can provide an all Chinese environment while tutoring with not just the language as well as the culture.

****Java****
I've tutored Java since college and I am a software developer for Android app as well as IOT products. Programming can be challenging when a logic is stuck and you have no idea where to start in order to solve it. That is the time when I jump in to help. No matter if you are taking a CS class or doing a project on your own, I can not only help you walk through and get the problem done but also help you think through the logic and algorithm. I once struggled with learning programming myself, so I know how to help someone who is stuck in the learning process of the language.

If you are interested in me being your tutor, don't hesitate in contacting me and we can talk more into details.

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.

ACT Math

I've successfully help my students improve their ACT math score by at least 30% in a short period of time.

Chinese

I provide a systematic way to help my student memorize vocabularies (Simplified & Traditional) as well as different teaching methods according to students' needs and level of proficiency. I was born and raised in Taiwan and came to Seattle at the age of 16. Therefore I am not only fluent in Mandarin Chinese, but also in English which help me teach more effectively.

Methodical and clear

Chiaho helped my daughter with geometry. He started by reviewing and familiarizing himself with the chapter she was having difficulty with, and then he went over each section with her to assess what she did and did not understand. He reinforced what she did know and built up her confidence, and then worked with her to explain the parts she did not know. She said that he explained concepts that
