Introduction: I’m a certified teacher and have been teaching for the past 4 years. My first experience as a tutor was as a freshman in high school, and I haven’t stopped tutoring since then! As a teacher, I’ve been lucky enough to have taught both math and Chinese (traditional and simplified) to K-12 students. Although teaching two different subjects to such a wide age group was at times difficult, this challenge was right up my alley. I specialized in secondary mathematics instruction for my Masters Degree at the USC Rossier School of Education, and Chinese is my native language. As a tutor, I expect my students to work hard and be dedicated. I believe that no subject is too difficult as long enough effort is put in. I only have a few students at a time, and most tend to stick around for quite a while. I’m always sad when they leave for college, but even then, they call me from time to time for help! The beauty of learning 1 on 1 is that the student is able to set the pace of the lessons. As a teacher and a tutor, I have learned to be flexible and creative with my lessons to support my students' learning styles, and I welcome the opportunity to help guide future students' educational journeys as well.

Wendy was a great tutor for our daughter, both in math and Mandarin. She was very flexible with her schedule, and even put in extra time one night before a big test involving some concepts that were difficult -- which our daughter aced! Wendy also gave her a huge boost in learning Mandarin, making her very excited to take it next year in school. I highly recommend Wendy. She really helped improve learning and grades, and my daughter really enjoyed working with her (huge bonus)!

We began sending our then 4th grade daughter to Wendy last year. In that time, her math skills have grown and more importantly her confidence. She has grown to like math. Wendy is great at explaining math concepts and is very calm and patient.

Zephyr Tutoring is excellent. I would highly recommend to anyone who is in need of tutoring in the subjects of Algebra and Mandarin. I have three children who worked with her. My two older students benefited from both Algebra and Mandarin tutoring and one of my students has entered college and exempted his foreign language requirement. Tutoring is not just for a student who is struggling, but also for the student who is unmotivated and needs to be encouraged. A tutor is also a mentor and someone to look up to for guidance in life, not just academics. For the motivated student, a tutor gives the extra edge to challenge the student beyond what a teacher would require. We found that in Zephyr Tutoring. I hope you give it a try!

Wendy taught my daughter and several other students Chinese for two years on a weekly basis during my daughter's sixth and seventh grade school years. It was a wonderful experience!!! The class was held in our home. The next year, when Wendy moved to California, we transitioned to another teacher and that year went great, too. We are so looking forward to our daughter beginning Chinese for a high school credit this coming fall, her ninth grade year, and our plan is that she continues through her senior year. Wendy helped introduce learning Chinese in a most enjoyable and also challenging manner. Wendy kept the students engaged and kept good order in the class times they spent together. She included art and drama, which was very enjoyable. Wendy has a strong work ethic and is very professional. She truly cares about her students. I highly recommend her as a Chinese teacher!!! -Mrs. Tricia Bailey, Lexington, SC (07.19.19)

We had a great experience. Zephyr Tutoring really helped my son who was struggling with math become more confident in his work. She was very flexible with scheduling and his math scores have improved. Thank you!
