I graduated from UWEE this year and currently working as a software development engineer. In my spare time, I'd love to spend time on things irrelevant to my career as well as basic sciences that I used to enjoyed learning the most.
Growing up in China, I was instilled with systematic mathematical knowledge since very young. Though I don't appreciate the way that I was taught, I can't resist all the fun I've had during learning maths. With my international backgrounds, I could better assist a student with understanding a problem, especially in maths. Moreover, I am very outgoing, which ensures that I could always make effective communications with my students.
