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.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

Just stop learning when you can't feel the fun of it.

What might you do in a typical first session with a student?

Ice-breakers; getting to know each other can be more beneficial than you expect.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

He/she should be unconsciously influenced if I can be the model as an independent learner.

How would you help a student stay motivated?

I take some rest when it is needed and give bonuses whenever a milestone is achieved.

If a student has difficulty learning a skill or concept, what would you do?

Be patient, and find the root cause of it.
