I earned my B.A. in Economics in University of California in Berkeley. I have two semesters of tutoring experience while working as an economics tutor. I have a strong academic background that can support me in various subjects such as math, statistics and economics. I am especially good with numbers which is why I averaged A- in all the quantitative math classes during my study in UC Berkeley.
Also, since I finished my high school in China before I came to the US, it prepared me well enough for the Chinese tutoring jobs, and more importantly; growing up taking tests as a Chinese student largely enhanced my tests preparing abilities which will allow me to help students preparing tests much more effectively.
My personality is best suited for tutoring. I am approachable, confident and patient. Also, I am concerned with details and enthusiastic with teaching, which made me meticulous about what I teach.
Based on my academic background and past experience, I am sure that I can flexibly adjust my approach to meet the students' needs and also help them establish a strong work ethics and independent problem-solving ability.
I am looking forward to meet you and I am sure I will help you achieve your academic goal successfully. And more importantly, studying hard is my way of realizing my American dream and I would love to share my experience with you.
