I am a scientist working in the R and D department of an energy storage company located in San Diego. My academic background is focused on materials science (PhD), physics (masters), and chemistry (bachelors). Through all the years in academy, I have obtained deep understanding to mathematics, including algebra, geometry, calculus, differentiation, statistics, from the beginning grade to college level, both in normal class or Olympics. I am also good at tests in science objects, such as GRE/GMAT quantitative, SAT math, physics, and chemistry.

Not only am I good at how to solve questions/problems in homework/tests, but I also have extensive experiences on how to think, summarize, memorize all the knowledge in science class, in order to efficiently improve the grades in class. Not only can I help you get higher grades, but I will also share my viewpoint and make the science courses look more interesting to you, making you enjoy more instead of being painful during studying.

I have experiences on tutoring high school and college students, in the major of math, physics, and chemistry. Besides that, I am fluent in Mandarin Chinese. I can teach in both English and Chinese, or teach you Chinese at all the levels.

I am an easy going person, and like to make friends, encourage people, and make people comfortable. In my spare time, I like to play soccer and Go game, also called Weiqi, a traditional board game in China, requiring deep calculation, strong memory, and good feeling, and being able to provide extensive fun for players.
