Hi my name is George Zhang. I am a senior attending University of Washington and pursuing a Bachelor degree in Electrical Engineering. I grew up in China and I speak both English and Mandarin. Intense projects and a heavy course load have helped to build a strong foundation in math, physics, and programming. When I came to this country, I was forced to overcome many language problems. I think the most important thing in tutoring is helping students find their own interest and stimulating their desires to get good grades for themselves. Work hard and play hard is the best way to succeed. I look forward to meeting you.
