I'm a third year computer science student at Northeastern University with a minor in mathematics. I started tutoring in high school by teaching my peers after school and during our lunch breaks. I have a passion for helping others with their studies and accomplishing their aspirations. It's always an exciting experience to help other overcome obstacles and achieve their goals!
I am also able to tutor in Mandarin Chinese. My hobbies are exploring the city of Boston, visiting historical landmarks and museums, and trying out new cuisines.

Q & A
What is your teaching philosophy?
My teaching philosophy is that all students have the potential to excel in any subject they are willing to devote time and effort to. I believe every student has the ability to succeed!
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
In a typical first session with a student, I would like to open a dialogue to understand how the student prefers to learn, what their academic goals are, and how we can work to achieve them. I would be open to share my experiences when I was taking classes in these subjects and provide tips on how to overcome common challenges I've encountered.
How can you help a student become an independent learner?
I can help a student become an independent learner by figuring out what kind of self-study method they excel in through our tutoring sessions. I would help the student develop their own studying style and habits, and find confidence to learn independently.
How would you help a student stay motivated?
I would help students stay motivated by drafting a step-by-step timeline with short term and long term goals. Short term goals would be small milestones that we could achieve over a couple of tutoring sessions, which serve as an encouragement and evidence of their improvement and progress.
If a student has difficulty learning a skill or concept, what would you do?
I would approach that concept with a different perspective, and by gauging how well the student can grasp the concept or skill, I would start by guiding them through practice problems until they feel comfortable enough to approach problems on their own.
