I'm so happy that I found Yanming to help my 1st grader to learn Chinese. He makes each lesson fun and productive, and she's been making good progress. Thank you!May 28, 2020Verified
I took lessons with him on three different occasions and he is quick to respond and get you the help you need. It was also my first time doing an online lesson as l always preferred face to face tutoring but it was easy and effortless, and he records everything and sends you the notes and the video so you can come back to it later!!Apr 30, 2020Verified

I used him as a ACT tutor and got 35 in 10 hours of instruction, up from a 28.I also used him in SAT, subject physics, biology, chemistry, PSAT and all the AP calculus AB, BC, chemistry, biology, AP physics 1 , 2 and C mechanics and EM. He is really strong in math and science and statistics and finance as well. I heard from many people we know that he taught and tutored 30,000 hours in 7 years and is almost the best tutor in USA right now. He work with many elite parents of high social status as well.choose him! Support him! You won’t regret! Best regards, MylaAug 27, 2019Verified

My daughter just met with Yanming for the first time (2 hours), but within the same visit, Yanming’s instruction was able to boost her confidence and help improve her understanding. I look forward to continued sessions and feel confident her actual ACT test scores will improve the next time it is administered.Aug 17, 2019Verified
