Yuhan

I have been tutoring since I was seventeen years old, and despite other jobs I've held, different colleges attended, and different cities I've lived in, I have always reserved a time in my life for teaching. I have been tutoring all levels of high school chemistry, from general chemistry to AP chemistry for over three years now, and my students in this subject range from middle school to college students. I also started tutoring various math subjects up to Algebra II when I was seventeen, and my math students range from elementary school students who simply want to accelerate their learning to college students who have that one last math credit to pass. I am endorsed by my own teachers and professors, who usually refer students to me. During my time at Duke University, I was part of a group that sent college mentors to the lowest performing high schools in the area, where we would help students with the college application process, SAT preparation, and direct them to specific resources like financial aid and scholarships. I have over a year of experience in test preparation and helping students with college applications, and I would love to help someone develop and edit their personal statement.

Although I mostly tutor math, science and standardized testing, a major aspect of my tutoring approach is in finding a way to relate the material so that it is relevant and applicable to real life experiences. I try to make the general concepts as interesting as possible before moving on to problem solving. If a student is pressed for time, however, I focus heavily on problem solving techniques, recognizing similar problems, and being able to classify similar problems together to make them easier to solve. I focus a lot on test taking tips and working under high pressure environments by encouraging students to take practice tests and recognize common mistakes that they tend to make. I can adapt to the learning styles of many students because even for a single subject, sometimes many techniques work best--from visualizing one type of problem, to remembering a specific formula for another.

If there's anything I have a breadth of experience for in life, it's being a student. I was the kid who would stay up late reading bedtime stories, win spelling bees, and compete in academic decathlons. I later on took just about every AP class under the sun, became a National Merit semifinalist, and dipped my feet in too many majors in college--from English, to film, to chemistry, and finally, neuroscience.

You could call me a natural born nerd, but I like to consider myself a Renaissance student--one with too much knowledge in different areas and nowhere to put it. That is, until I discovered tutoring. I have been tutoring in my spare time for the past three years, and I've realized that teaching someone else is really the best way to learn. Being someone with a natural curiosity for learning, I became drawn to teaching as well. My expertise lies in chemistry, which is the first subject I really started teaching, math, biology, SAT subjects, and essay writing. I love to read so much that I actually invite people to send me their essays free of charge if they need a second opinion. As I'm still completing my last year of my undergraduate career, I'm not only still a student, but I also went through the college application/preparation process not long ago. The material and experiences are still fresh in my mind, so I really enjoy tutoring and giving advice to students who are going through this process.

Some of my own academic accomplishments include receiving a 800 on the SAT Math and SAT Writing portions. I was 'Student of the Chapter' for over 65% of the chapters taught during the time I took Algebra II and Pre-Calculus; this distinction was given to the student who scored the highest number of points for the section.
I received 5s on AP Calculus AB, AP Chemistry, AP European History, AP Chinese, AP Language and Composition, and AP US History, and a 4 on AP Literature. I attended Duke University as a freshman before transferring to USC as a neuroscience major, where I have made the Dean's List all semesters (from 2013-2015) and have a 4.0 GPA for all biology and chemistry courses taken.

I love meeting students and hearing their stories, struggles and triumphs and helping them through whatever they may need. I look forward to hearing from you and learning with you!
