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
Yanming: is a cut above the best tutors, I am confident, the world over. He tutors from a place of sharp academic prowess, yet without arrogance. He is proficient in a mix of subjects including science, math, business and languages to name just some. He tutors with a great caring and heart; unusual in today’s antagonistic environment. He is an answer to prayer and a true Godsend. Yanming has a special ability in academia and I am glad to have been a recipient of his talents. I look forward to his tutelage as I move forward in my academic career.Oct 3, 2017Verified
Yanming (or would you prefer I write Dr. Zhang?) was extremely helpful in tutoring me in MCAT physics. Although I had a weak background in physics, Yanming was able to focus on the details I needed most to do well on the MCATs without teaching me an entire physics course. After just a few hours with Yanming, I felt much more confident, and ended up scoring in the 90th percentile in the Physical Sciences section. I would highly recommend Yanming if you are having trouble with physics.Oct 27, 2015
Yanming was extremely helpful in understanding Physics concepts. He explains in depth and will review more than once if necessary to make sure you understand. Excellent tutor!Sep 25, 2019Verified
