I love to show young people (as with my own children) the importance and correct use of math and physics in real-life applications, especially in times where math and physics are often overlooked in our education. My approach has always been (1) understanding the why (the concepts), (2) know the how (tools and methods), (3) do it right (solve correctly the problems) and take it to the next level (think it through, practice, and apply the skills to similar/future problems). My goal is to help young people master math and physics from principle to applications as their needs require. I tailor my teaching to student’s need, resources, priority on the concept or problem solving or both. I am detail minded, interactive, and flexible in working with students ranging from high/middle-school to college/university. I pay close attention to student’s needs, learning progress, and make necessary adjustments for best results. I received my PhD from University of California: Los Angeles. My other degrees MS/BS are also in Physics. I started my physics major in Zhejiang University which was and still is top 3 universities in China after passing the entrance exam which qualified only 1% who participated. I came to the US as a graduate student in Physics, first to California State University Northridge. After receiving my MS in Physics, I went on to University of California Los Angeles to complete my PhD program in Physics. I was a postdoctoral research associate with Univeristy of Illinois at Urbana Champaigh after I received my PhD degree.

School Tutoring performs an assessment of student needs and learning goals before assigning a tutor to a student; while tutors are listed here, the normal process involves a consultation before tutors are assigned, which is generally a positive sign of quality. It's unclear how thoroughly vetted the tutors are, but the consultation process shows that School Tutoring makes a strong effort to provide a high quality tutoring experience.
