Algebra 1

Algebra is my specialty. I have been tutoring Algebra I for 5 plus years, including homeschooling my own children who both became very strong in math.


Prealgebra

I hold a Master's degree in education. In addition, I have a clear teaching credential from the State of California and have been working as a substitute teacher for years. Also, I have home schooled both of my children until the end of middle school.


ESL/ESOL

I hold a Master's degree in education with Nova Southeastern University, as well as, a clear teaching credential from the State of California. I have been working as a substitute teacher for many years and have successfully homeschooled both of my children.


Japanese

I hold a bachelor's degree in Japanese literature from Sichuan University, China, a Master's degree in education with Nova Southeastern University in the U.S., as well as a clear teaching credential from the State of California. I am fluent in Japanese and English. I have been teaching Japanese to non-native speakers for many years, from elementary to college students.

Elementary Math

During the past 8 years of tutoring math (elementary and middle school) I have taught math in a unique way different from what's been taught in a traditional classroom. I show them there are more than one way to skin a cat. Typically, I have my students try at least two or three ways in resolving a same problem and help them pick one method they find works best for them. It's been rewarding. In addition to a Master's degree in education, I have a clear teaching credential from the State of California. I have been teaching as a substitute teacher, a private tutor, as well as, a homeschool educator for many years.


Elementary (K-6th)

I hold a clear teaching credential (multiple subjects) from the State of California. I have been teaching as a substitute teacher and a home-school teacher for the last 12 years. In addition, I earned a BA degree in literature from Sichuan University, China, and a Master's degree in education with Nova Southeastern University in the U.S. I have been working as a substitute and home-school teacher for 12 years. I am also a private tutor in Math, ESL, TOFEL, and Chinese/Japanese language. I have taught in classroom setting, small group setting, as well as, one-on-one tutoring.


Chinese

Raised and educated in China with a bachelor's degree from the prestigious Sichuan University, I also hold a Master's degree in education from Nova Southeastern University in the U.S. In addition, I have a clear teaching credential from the State of California and have been working as a substitute teacher for more than 12 years. Also, I have home schooled both of my children until the end of middle school. I am fluent in Chinese, Japanese, and English (I have been living in the United States for more than twenty-eight years). I enjoyed teaching Chinese at the Chinese school of our Church in Irvine for a few years. I have also tutored students privately including my own America born children who have become fluent in speaking, reading, and writing the Chinese language. I tutor all level from elementary to college students, including preparation for AP Chinese.


Common Core

Ever since common core was introduced to our school district, I have implemented this teaching method into our daily activities to my home-schooled children. During last summer vacation, I had an opportunity teaching my 5th-grade son Redbird math, a common core math program designed by Standford University and was very successful.


Homeschool

I have a California cleared teaching credential and have been homeschooled my two sons from 2nd grade through 8th grade. Both of my children have excelled in all subjects under my homeschool guidance. My older son is in honor class in his high school and is an accomplished pianist. My younger son is also far ahead of same aged students.
