5 Lessons Taught
Hi, my name is Brian, and I'm offering tutoring in Mathematic and Chinese language. Here's a background on my experience in these two areas.
My Math Background:
I've been a dedicated Math student throughout school, and have had extensive experience tutoring students at all levels across various subjects. I am a 2010 graduate of a 4 year honors college in Maryland where I graduated Phi Beta Kappa and Magna Cum Laude with a major in Mathematics.
Before graduating from Bethesda-Chevy Chase HS in 2006 I earned a score of 5 on the AP BC Calculus test under the instruction of the Montgomery County Public School Teacher of the Year recipient. I went on to attend college in Maryland where I majored in Mathematics and served as a TA for a class taught by the Chair of the Math Department. During my time in college I gained extensive experience explaining difficult mathematical concepts in clear, easy-to-understand language to young math students.
Since my graduation from college, I have tutored students in various levels of math from middle school to high school, and this school year I am hoping to take on more students.
My background with Chinese:
I've been a dedicated student of Chinese for over 5 years, and have had extensive experience living, traveling, studying and working in mainland China. I am a recent graduate of a 4 year college in Maryland where I graduated Phi Beta Kappa and Magna Cum Laude with a double-major in Mathematics and Chinese. In the past 5 years I have been on 4 extended trips to China and have lived in various regions/cities of the country. I spent 2 semester at two of China's leading universities (Fudan University and Beijing University) where I received formal instruction in Mandarin. After college I spent 3 years working in the renewable energy field in Beijing where I used my Mandarin skills daily and achieved a high level of efficiency with the language in a professional environment.
I am not a "native speaker" of Mandarin Chinese, but I have an exceptional command of the language, extensive experience in the country, and I can easily relate to non-Chinese students of Mandarin who have no prior cultural or language experience. I am also highly passionate about languages and language acquisition, and I'm excited to work with you on mastering Mandarin Chinese!
