I graduated from Georgia Tech with a Bachelor's degree in Biomedical Engineering and am currently pursuing my Master's in BME at UTSA. I have tutored elementary school through high school students in various levels of math, ranging from Algebra to Calculus. I am very confident with my abilities in this area, but understand the struggles many students face while grappling with different mathematical concepts. My understanding of the various math topics allows me to approach problems from different angles and provide different explanations to help the student fully grasp the concepts. I also fluent in Mandarin Chinese and took 4 years of Chinese in high school, including at the AP level. I believe I can help students by explaining the material in a way that is engaging and interesting, based on the students' learning styles. As a tutor, my goals are to ensure that my students not only achieve the scores they desire, but also come away with a deeper understanding and interest in the topics.
In addition to school and tutoring, I enjoying playing sports, rock climbing, listening to and playing music, photography, and travel.

What is your teaching philosophy?
Everyone has a unique learning style, so it is important to explain material that keeps the students interested and engaged based on their individual learning styles.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
Get to know the student's learning style. Learn about the student's strengths and weaknesses. By understanding what their strengths are, I can try to gauge the best way to help them understand the material they are struggling with.
How can you help a student become an independent learner?
Get the student interested in the subject so they are more likely to study it on their own. Teach them how to respond to/solve challenges. Guide the students through the problems, but then have them solve them on their own to show themselves that they are perfectly capable of doing it. Lastly, encourage them and give them formative feedback.
How would you help a student stay motivated?
Help boost the students' confidence by encouraging them. Keep the student engaged by having them solve problems on their own. Set reasonable goals and offer some sort of reward for achieving the goals.
If a student has difficulty learning a skill or concept, what would you do?
Use different methods of explaining the concept to them based on their learning styles. Also, try including examples so they can actively apply the concepts.
What techniques would you use to be sure that a student understands the material?
Have them solve problems on their own and then have them explain their process.
