With my PhD degree in chemistry, I am fully qualified to teach chemistry at all levels, including high school General, Honors, and Advanced Placement (AP) Chemistry, as well as introductory and general chemistry at the college level.

I incorporate detailed PowerPoint presentations, Flash games, Virtual Labs, animation movies, and 3-D molecular models into my lessons. Under my instruction, 75% of my students received a full letter grade improvement in just one month.

鍾博士具有多年家教經驗，包括高中階段的普通化學( Regular Chemistry )，榮譽化學( Chemistry Honors )，和進階先修化學( AP Chemistry )，以及大學和專科必修的普通化學(College General Chemistry)等課程。為了提昇學生的學習效果，鍾博士將枯燥乏味的化學教科書和深奧難懂的化學觀念改編成活潑生動的幻燈片教材，更於課程中跟據實際需要，引用各種多媒体教學方式，例如互動遊戲，虛擬實驗室，電腦動畫，3D分子模型，和仿真試題...等。經由這種多媒體教學後，75%學生的化學成績均可在一個月內大幅提昇!

#### Experience

Obtained teaching certificates in both Chemistry and Mathematics at high school level in TaiwanPassed Single Subject Teaching Credential in both Chemistry and Mathematics in California.

The AP Chemistry exam involves numerous calculations, so the CollegeBoard recommends that students successfully complete Algebra 2 before taking AP Chemistry. In addition to chemistry, I can teach Fundamental Math, Pre-Algebra, Algebra 1 & 2, Geometry, Trigonometry, Math Analysis, Pre-Calculus, and Calculus. Many students who have trouble with chemistry also struggle in math. Since I can teach both subjects, you won't need to hire two separate tutors: instead, you can hire a chemistry tutor and a math tutor for the cost of one. I can teach chemistry only, math only, or both subjects consecutively, depending on the student's needs. If you are interested, please call me at (626)442-5774 to ask for a discounted trial lesson.

AP化學(AP Chemistry)是美國大學委員會提供給高中生諸多AP課程中的一門，AP課程設立目的是為了讓優秀的高中生，有機會在高中時期就能選修一些大學程度的課程。高中生若要證明自己在某些科目上的優秀表現，最具體的方法，就是通過選修AP課程並且獲得AP考試高分。AP化學每年定期於五月份考試，考試的內容包括多重選擇題，和問答題。AP考試成績為二者加權合併後再轉換為五分制的最後總分：5分代表非常優秀，4分代表優秀，3分代表及格。通常AP課程的考試成績若能獲得4分以上高分，進大學後可免修相關課程並可折抵大學學分。

AP化學包含許多高深複雜的數學運算，當你在找尋AP化學家教時，最好找一位可以同時教數學的老師，因為當學生的化學觀念搞懂了卻由於數學程度差而算不出正確答案，這時同時會教數學的化學老師就能幫助學生同時解決化學和數學上的問題。鍾博士除了化學之外也教多種數學(Mathematics), 包括代數(Pre-Algebra, Algebra 1 & 2)，幾何(Geometry)，三角函數(Trigonometry)，數學分析(Math Analysis)，學前微積分(Precalculus)，和微積分(Calculus)等課程。鍾博士不但具備台灣初高中數學和化學合格教師執照，更通過美國加州數學和化學合格教師認證。如果您的小孩同時有化學和數學的困難時，鍾博士可以同時教兩種科目，您只要花費一份代價就可同時聘請一位化學老師，和一位數學老師。 如果有興趣, 請立即打電話(626)442-5774詢問試聽課程。

AP Chemistry is offered by the College Board as a part of the Advanced Placement Program to give high school students the opportunity to demonstrate their abilities and earn college-level credit. The AP Chemistry exam is graded on a curve and based on a five-point grade scale. 15% of test takers receive a 5 (best), 18% get a 4, 24% receive a 3, 18% get a 2, and 25% are given a 1 (no recommendation for college credit).

Getting a 5 on AP Chemistry exam is hard, but definitely not impossible. I am here to help! With both BS and PhD degree in Chemistry, I am fully qualified to teach AP Chemistry. I converted the boring textbooks into exciting PowerPoint, I also combined lots of multimedia tools, such as Flash games, Virtual Labs, Animation movies, and 3D molecular models! As the result, most of my students received much better score just after few tutoring sessions!

The AP Chemistry exam involves lots of calculations, when you are looking for an AP Chemistry tutor, you need to make sure the tutor has very strong background on both Chemistry and Math. I passed Single Subject Teaching Credential on both Chemistry and Mathematics in California. It will be very convenient for you and your child. Because many students whoever have problems in Chemistry might also struggle in Math. I can teach both subjects one after another. That means you don't need to hire two tutors, you can hire one Chemistry tutor and one Math tutor for the cost of one.
