#### Experience

During my Ph.D education, I had more than 4 years of teaching experiences as a TA (teaching assistant to university professors). In these courses, I taught students basic course concepts (biology, chemistry, physics, engineering, etc) and helped them to design and assemble mechanical and electrical parts for conducting scientific research.In addition, I have constantly been doing 1-on-1 tutoring for many years and I have tutored more than 200+ students. (I can provide references from my former/current students or parents upon request). I really enjoy teaching and seeing students learn basic concepts and pick up hands-on skills. I teach students in ways not only to help them to do well in their course-work, but more importantly also to teach them how to apply what they learn and to think ‘outside-the-box’. Some of the things I can provide for the students are:

1) Set a strong foundation in their current course work

2) Develop great problem-solving skills

3) Stimulate students to think more creatively

Having been through different phases in my academic career, I understand making academic decisions (picking colleges, course selections, etc) can be very confusing and often frustrating. I can be there for the students as a mentor/counselor, guiding them through the process.

#### Hobbies

Work well with all types of student personalities. I can provide references from my former/current students (or parents) upon request. I welcome students to come to my house for tutoring. I have a well-equipped and comfortable classroom dedicated specifically for tutoring. I also tutor through SKYPE. So if you have hw/exam problems or if distance is an issue, please don't hesitate to contact me.My hobbies are guitar, organic gardening, many types of sports (tennis, badminton, basketball, ping pong), and P90X workouts.
