Translating Abstract Ideas Into Concrete Reality

After earning a B.S. in Physics from Penn State, I studied briefly as a PhD student in particle astrophysics before moving to Shanghai to teach high school physics. I later founded and managed Newton American Education Studio to help prepare Shanghai?s top students to enter and succeed at America's most selective universities. After relocating to the US, I've taught high school math at the prestigious Landon School outside Washington, DC, and am now in Los Angeles, CA where my wife Jenny teac... [more]

Algebra 1

Algebra 2


I taught advanced math to my Chinese students in Shanghai! You will score 700+ on SAT Subject Tests or 4+ on the AP and I will get you there.



I led my Shanghai students to the highest A-Level Physics scores in Asia. No matter if it's AP, IB, SAT, MCAT, or GRE physics, your scores will go up. I've even had normal humans earn perfect scores!



We're not going to just memorize equations! For ten years, I've tutored and taught classes on math and physics in America and abroad. We will work through your pre-calc together. By the end, you'll have a solid math foundation for whatever it is you're trying to do.


SAT Math

SAT Reading

For ten years, I've battled the SAT around the world and picked up a lot of "tricks". 150+ on Reading is typical, even for ESL! More is common, even without (completely) blasting you with mind-numbing vocabulary.

ACT Math

Elementary Math

Differential Equations

As a physicist, teacher, and tutor, I have nearly 10 years of experience with differential equations. I have tutored advanced high school students and university students in methods of ordinary and partial differential equations.

Linear Algebra

I also have 10 years of experience with linear algebra. I have tutored linear algebra to advanced high school students as well as computer science and engineering students at the university level.
