My tutoring stands out from the rest by the different catergories that I could help my students with. I could not only teach Chinese for the ones who want to learn, but I could also help with SAT math and other math subjects such as algebra, algebra 2, and pre-calculus. I love helping people understand the subjects that they are struggling with, and I am extremely positive and patient when my students face difficulties in their learning. I can guarantee that my students will have fun during my tutoring session. Some things you should know about me are that I am bilingual in Chinese and English. I received a 4 on my Chinese AP test and a 790 on SAT math test. To conclude, I am very passionate about learning math and teaching others how to advance their skills.
The parts of tutoring that I enjoy are helping others become successful in the areas that they are struggling with. Also, I like using my knowledge to help kids build their confidence.
