My name is Sherry and I currently have my masters degree in Experimental Psychology. With over 3 years of experience teaching elementary, high school, undergraduate and graduate students, I specialize in tutoring many subjects, mostly in the humanities and social sciences. I also tutor in Mandarin Chinese. As a native speaker in Chinese, I love to teach Chinese because the language relates to my background and specialty. I can also tutor areas in social sciences, include statistics, biostatistics, psychology, etc. I am looking forward to meeting new students. My teaching philosophy is to let students get the most out of the sessions and I am very flexible to cater to students' needs.
