"Hi, I'm Jin! I love working with students of all ages and backgrounds and look forward to getting to know you! I've worked with students from pre-school to high school (ages 4-18) for over three years and adapt my methods to each student's preferences and areas of focus. I've tutored in Geometry, Algebra I and II, Pre-Calc, SAT/ACT Math, English (both for native speakers and for ESL), US History, and Chinese.

I've worked with young students in elementary math, English, history, science, and Chinese as well as having story times and Bible studies. For my younger kiddos, I like to come up with fun and inventive ways to learn such as memory and word games and interactive notebooks and incorporate art, music, and visuals into lessons. For my older students, I generally request some sample school materials so I can make study plans, match my lessons to the student's school curriculum, and find appropriate links/videos for students to watch on their own time. In each lesson, I offer students an opportunity to watch as I approach problems, then give them progressively harder questions as we prepare for assignments and exams. Of course, not all of our time will be dedicated to doing practice problems out of a workbook; I like to keep things inclusive and interesting by infusing discussion questions, virtual simulations and applets, videos, and hands-on projects.

As for my favorite subjects, I've always enjoyed Math, English, and History. Math is one of my greatest passions! In high school, I received perfect scores on the math sections of both the SAT and ACT and was the valedictorian of a graduating class of 500. I've also spent many years travelling around Texas to compete in math competitions, winning numerous medals. I know that math can be a tricky subject, but I'm here with you every step of the way to help you piece the puzzle together!

As for English, I grew up reading novels like Harry Potter and Percy Jackson. I absolutely love exploring fantasy and sci-fi novels and highly enjoyed classes in high school a" less...
