Mr Sheldon X. of West Covina CA USA Tutor Profile

Tutor Personal Information

Name: Mr Sheldon X.
Gender: Male   Age: 22-25
Tutoring Style and/or Experience

I am Sheldon. I have a undergraduate degree (BA Accounting) from Tsinghua University, the equivalent of MIT in the US. With several years of tutoring experience in different subjects such as algebra, geometry, precalculus, GMAT, SAT, CPA accounting, etc., I have been pretty good at diagnosing the students and helping them efficiently. My best skills are in math and accounting. I succeeded in helping students who are in desperate need of help in math to make progress. One of my students improved from an "F" to an "A-" in algebra 2 in two months. In fact, most of my students improve in the near term if not shortly so that I usually develop long-term relationship with the students and the family. I teach them to understand rather than follow the steps. I am trying to combine the systems from China and the US and figuring out the best way to learn math for students in the US. I am patient and kind so that the students are willing to trust me.

Regarding accounting, I have passed all CPA courses of America and 5 of 6 of AICPA Australia and am in the process of certifying. I have also completed all the basic and advanced accounting courses, including financial and managerial accounting and have a number of students.

I got 770/800 in GMAT (51/51 in math and 44/51 in verbal) and have a good knowledge of the system of the SAT and general math in the US.
