Hi, I am Nici. I am a PhD student at University of Washington, majoring in educational measurement and statistics, with a secondary specialization in multicultural education curriculums. I teach a broad range of topics related to math, statistics, English language test, and Mandarin.
I am highly proficient in math subjects from pre-algebra, geometry, calculus up through graduate-level statistics. For graduate-level statistics help, I am capable of running SPSS, R program, Mplus for data analysis. In terms of teaching, I can help you identify the problem context well, connect with your familiar knowledge, and solve the tricky puzzles through meta-method of problem-solving by summarizing patterns, avoiding misconceptions/pitfalls, and the solid mastery of concepts which will last for your future cognitive development.
As someone who works in education, I do not want my tutoring to be boring as merely boiled down to solving the problems. I want to teach you the 'way' and method of learning new knowledge as well. The skills of problem-solving, rather than the merely knowledge itself, to me is more important in determining your educational success.
My goal for tutoring is not only improve students' knowledge in the content area, I would love to help students feel confident and offer advices to be successful in the future. If you have any questions or if you would like to schedule lessons, please feel free to contact me. I will typically respond to messages during the same business day, usually within a few hours, and I require only 2-hours' notice if you decide to cancel a lesson.Contact me beforehand and I will come prepared each time to make your tutoring time worthwhile.
