EducationI am a recent graduate of Yale university, majored in Economics, now working for a start-up in the city. While at Yale, I took classes in all disciplines, including history, math, neuroscience, English, and art history.
I studied at Oxford University for a year during my junior year, studying Economics and English.
I spent summer of 2012 in London, at the London School of Economics, and the summer of 2014 working at Christie's.
ExperienceI received a 32 on ACT and 2010 on SAT.
I can also help in SAT Subject tests. I've taken:
SAT Math II: 740
SAT US History: 700
In the past few years, I have tutored kids in US history, essay writing, and math. I really enjoy teaching kids about subjects that I'm passionate about, following my curriculum and making the topic interesting to them.
I have also worked for an education firm that specialize in helping high schoolers apply to college, so I've advised many students on how best to approach the college application process. It is not as daunting as everyone says it is!
I am a native Chinese speaker, so can work with students on pronunciation.
I have taken French for 6 years, with a semester spent in Paris, and am fairly fluent in the language. I can work with students on a wide range of topics in the language: speaking, writing, grammar, listening, and vocabulary.
I also love helping students improve their writing, from fictional pieces to critical essays. I've taken many English classes at Yale, and so I understand the standard that my professors require.
HobbiesI love Jane Austen novels and Art history. I have also traveled to many places: France, England, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Panama, Japan, Taiwan, and China. I love exploring a new place! I also enjoy baking. Recently, I've finally managed to bake the perfect macaron!

My son, a rising senior, enjoyed working with Vicky. His weakest subject was math. With Vicky's assistance, my son increased his ACT math score by two points. She only worked with him for one week. I wish I had found her a few weeks earlier. If Vicky is available next summer or over the winter break, I would love for her to tutor my younger son before he takes his first SAT or ACT. Thanks Vicky for helping my son become a Palmetto Fellows Scholar.
