I got my education at Lehigh University in Pennsylvania, where I attained a BS in Material Science and Engineering. I am currently working on a Master's degree in Computer Science. I have four years of experience tutoring elementary students and have tutored 1st to 9th grade English, Math, and Science and test prep for SAT and GRE Math and the Chinese Subject test. I don't prefer any subject over another. I just enjoy working out problems with students. I truly believe that any student can excel in whatever they learn. They might just need a little help and guidance in figuring out the subject, and that is where I come in. During my free time, I like to play with jigsaw puzzles, read and watch TV. I am really patient with students, and I like to make sure they fully understand the material.
