...I love being able to work with students and clients to help them better understand mathematics. The moment when a challenging problem becomes a "no-brainer" is the highlight of my week. That is the energy that I bring to my sessions.

...Abstraction is a hard concept to understand, and I believe the concept all together is ignored in many schools. We're taught this is algebra, and this is how you use it, but we're never taught why we use it, or what makes it so useful. "Why" is a very important question. I believe understanding the "whys" of math is the key to both using it effectively, and retaining the information.

I grew up in a family with both my mom and stepfather being teachers. I love teaching and enjoy helping others to understand chemistry. I got my BS in biochemistry from Nankai University, one of the top ten universities in China and my PhD in chemistry from University of Florida.

...For this reason, I believe that with the right tools, any student can excel in math! Although most of my experience is with mathematical subjects, I am qualified to tutor reading and English as well. I have been tutoring since high school, when I began helping underclassmen with Pre-Algebra and Algebra I.
