I am a student at the University of Massachusetts Amherst pursuing a double major in computer science and mathematics with a minor in Information Technology. I am also a member of the UMASS Commonwealth Honors College. I have been a private tutor for a year, and I have tutored seven students. My main tutoring specialty and my favorite subject is math. The subjects I tutor include Calculus 2, Calculus 1, Calc AB, Calc BC, Pre-calculus, Algebra 1, Algebra 2, ACT Math, SAT Math, Middle School Math, and Elementary School Math. Besides math, I tutor Mandarin Chinese, English as a Second Language, and Computer Science. I am very flexible in my teaching incorporating many different teaching styles, and I always cater to the needs of my student. I try to make tutoring sessions more interesting, interactive, and hands-on while helping a student achieve his/her academic goals. This to me is the most important. Outside of academia, I love swimming, tennis, and violin. I also love to travel. My dream is to travel the world.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

With students struggling with reading comprehension, I would take session time to read with them and bring reading materials to the session.
