I am a recent graduate of McMaster University. I have worked at McMaster University as a teaching assistant and at McMaster Science Society as a tutor. I have also tutored independently for high school students. My primary focus is on STEM, but also offer tutoring with academic writing such as essays.

I have been offering my tutoring services for 3 years in both English and Mandarin. I have previously worked at McMaster University as a grading and tutorial teaching assistant in two second year courses in the School of Interdisciplinary Sciences under the Life Sciences faculty. I have also worked at McMaster Science Society as a tutor, offering my services to predominantly lower year university students in helping them with their courses and guiding them to achieve their academic goals. I have also worked as an independent tutor, helping many high school students with their studies and mentoring students to develop good study habits, as well as key strategies for sustainable academic success.
