Currently, I am a sophomore majoring in Biomedical Engineering and Economics at Washington University in St. Louis. I went to St. Thomas Aquinas High School on the border between Massachusetts and New Hampshire and graduated with highest honor.
I have started tutoring since my high school career. In high school, I have been tutoring middle school and high school classmates in the neighborhood on Math and basic Sciences. Here at Washington University in St. Louis, I started from peer tutor in Math and Physics then in my very first year; I was also selected to be the Biomedical Engineering Problem Solving Team Leader--which is a tutoring job but more then simple tutoring. I conduct weekly review sessions with teams of biomedical engineering underclassmen, helping them on concepts and homework. I also lead reviewing and clarify core concepts for Introduction to Biomedical Engineering course. Beyond tutoring academically, I assist students with their assimilation into college life as well.
I tutor Biomedical Engineering, all math subjects ranging from K-12 to junior college level, all levels of Physics, all levels of Biology, all level of Chinese, and SAT preparation, including regular SAT test and Math, Physics, Biology, Chinese SAT subject tests.
My teaching style is very test-preparation orientedbased on learning and emphasis on the most important key points in subjects. My philosophy is to first help students to familiarize with the key concepts, and then tackle each specific type of questions by techniques and all kinds of tricks. Through the years of accumulation, I do have many little tricks that can expedite the problem-solving process with strong understanding.
Born in China yet spending years in New England, I am always considered as a hard-core Bostonian. I enjoy the serenity of classical music as well as the passion of sportsespecially soccer and football. My interests range from aviation to video games, and I am also, a puppy lover.
I am flexible, easygoing, and know how to deal with exams specially. As mentioned, my tutoring style is very test-preparation oriented. If a score booster is needed, I am here for him/her.
