Chinese girl that has been in the United States for 6 years

Methodology

I first will have to understand the student better, to know what he wants, what he likes and dislikes, and try to make my teaching full of fun, but at the same time to make sure the student can truly learn something from me.

Background

I had both a Master degree from the University of Texas at Austin and a Bachelor degree from Michigan State University in Economics. I've been tutoring undergrad students in econ major in both econ courses and math courses, e.g. Calculus.
