I am a neuroscience PhD graduate student at Northwestern university. I obtained my B.A. degree from Bryn Mawr College in Biology and Computer Science. I have a passion for education and firmly believe that education can change lives and provide the upward social mobility. I love interacting with students and building connections with them on a personal level. I prefer to teach students the learning method and thinking process, rather than just the answer. I am good at guiding students and letting them come up with the answer by themselves. In college, I am a TA for a Calculus 1 class, helping students understand difficult concepts and prepare for tests. Last summer, I traveled back to China and tutored math for standardized testing such as the SAT Subject Math and AP Calculus. Helping struggling students achieve high scores in standardized testing has been one of the most rewarding experiences - it boosts students' confidence and at the same time gives them the desire to learn more and tackle harder problems.

Chinese is my native language. As a Chinese tutor, I enjoy helping students not only achieve desirable scores in standardized testing, but also use the language to communicate. I believe the key to learning a new language is to practice, practice, and practice. I love seeing my students gain confidence in speaking this beautiful language.
