"I do my best to keep lessons fun and interesting by connecting them to a student's interests whenever possible. I believe that one-on-one help is often the best pathway to success, and I enjoy individualizing my lessons to a student's interests and needs. My background is in Linguistics and Communication Disorders, but I have always loved math and science as well. When I'm not tutoring or studying for my own classes, you'll often see me reading, baking, or going for a walk.."

"I have a strong understanding and passion for math and science, and I love to share that enthusiasm with students. According to various statistics of the Chicago land area, students find subjects in math and science to be the most difficult and therefore the least interesting. There are a wide variety of techniques to teach but the key is discovering the strategies each student learns best. Here is where the schoolteacher can sometimes come up short and where I can help."

"There I develop curriculum and provide professional development to educators. I very much enjoy my tutoring positions and have found them to be rewarding, both for me and for my students.

" Part of my everyday routine is using the concepts learned in these subjects to perform my duties. As part of my education and background, I have taught classes at an introductory college level in Biology 101 and 102. I received high marks for engaging and explaining key concepts to my students. I have also tutored friends and family members ranging from high school to medical school. I try to engage students at every step of a problem to ensure that they are not simply memorizing the answers but to ensure that they are understanding the problem at a fundamental level.

"Besides the obvious obstacles of differentiating tones and writing characters, the language is infused with many cultural nuances that add to its beauty as well as its complexity. As a native speaker of English myself I know just how difficult learning Mandarin can be. After several extensive trips to China (including 6 months as an exchange student at Xiamen University) I also know how much fun there is to be had, not to mention the plethora of opportunities that come with speaking Mandarin well. The Chinese have a saying: One more friend, one more road. So allow me to call upon my experiences in learning the language and culture to guide ...

"I believe everyone has the capacity to learn; you just have to find the way that fits your personality. I LOVE seeing people grow and succeed! In my spare time, I enjoy playing soccer or running (weather permitting). I can be found relaxing at the piano or with my flute, and look forward to learning even more musical instruments. Some day, I hope to travel around the world and experience as many different cultures as I can!."
