As a teacher, I’ve been lucky enough to have taught both math and Chinese to K-12 students. Although teaching two different subjects to such a wide age group was at times difficult, this challenge was right up my alley. I specialized in secondary mathematics instruction for my Master's Degree at the USC Rossier School of Education, and Chinese is my BA degree and my native language.
As a tutor, I expect my students to work hard and be dedicated. I believe that no subject is too difficult as long enough effort is put in. I only have a few students at a time, and most tend to stick around for quite a while. I’m always sad when they leave for college, but even then, they call me from time to time for help!
The beauty of learning 1 on 1 is that the student is able to set the pace of the lessons. As a teacher and a tutor, I have learned to be flexible and creative with my lessons to support my students' learning styles, and I welcome the opportunity to help guide future students' educational journeys as well.
ms. wendy has been such a great tutor to me as she knew my strength/weaknesses and made sure i understood everything. i love how sweet and funny she is, which always made me look forward to meeting her weekly. another thing i loved about working with her is that aside from tutoring, she would be there to listen to my goals and concerns i have, and would give me such great advice for highschool and beyond. thank you for the effort you put to be the best tutor i could ever ask for and putting a smile on my face!!
During the first session, we discuss the challenges the student is facing, the student's learning needs, and the goals of having the tutoring sessions.
The discussion will determine the pace and the style of our sessions thereafter.
