I am a former university lecturer in mathematics. I worked in UCD(part-time), DCU and St.Patrick's College (full-time). In particular, I have lectured students doing educational degrees: they will be either primary or secondary school teachers. I was in two different education systems: East and West. Over the years, I gradually form my own education ethos which seek to combine the advantages of both.
I have sixteen years of tutoring experience. I have worked with students from secondary level to third level, students with special needs, mature students, master lever students, as well as students whose first language is not English. During these fifteen years, I also helped some students doing Chinese language. I have five years of university lecturing experience, and have lectured a wide variety of undergraduate courses. This lecturing experience enables me to give valuable advices to students on how exams are graded and how students should response to exam questions. Given any mathematical course, my professional knowledge and experience enable me to see the structure of the entire course in a very short time period, and identify the most important part or topics of the course, which will give better study direction and strategy to the students, so that the students can study more efficiently. I have worked with more than 150 individual students in the past years, and eighty-five percent of these students have passed their exams with big improvement on their mathematics score. Many improved from failing to H3 or H2, even H1, within a few months.
Approach to Grinds:
My teaching focuses on understanding, rather than just a few maths tricks. This is very important for students who need to do mathematics in their degree courses post Leaving Cert. exam. Understanding the concept is a key element for being interested in a subject.
I give students the adequate amount of homework for each session, and the homework will be checked in detail in the following session. This is especially important to second level students. Mathematics is not only about getting the right answer in the end, but in many cases is about "how" to get there, and how to express your idea in the most precise mathematical language.
I am generous with time in each session, I usually do not stop a session before I finish a topic.
Different people process knowledge in different ways. To me, no students are "not born for maths". With the right teaching, the right guidance of study technique, and most importantly, the diligence of the student, anyone can do mathematics well!
I have a great passion in the subject, for its nature of flawless reasoning and logic, and always wish more people to see the real beauty of mathematics.

method is incisive, methodical and individualised, insuring each lesson is completely understood by every student at ths end of the session. The additional homework given iat the end of class encourages my daughter to practise the new math concepts throughout the week until her next tutoring session. My daughters maths comprehension has dramatically improved and she approaches her school.maths with an enthusiasm never seen before. Her schools exams results are now A honours Maths instead of C. More importantly my daughter now approaches Maths with an inquisitive enthusiastic approach rather than a chore. This is totally due to Huizhongs amazing technique. I highly recommend her as a tutor and we are totally indebted to her. If only all teachers had her dedication and love of their subject. Her sense of humour is an added bonus and all the children respnd to this too.
Many thanks for your very kind and encouraging review. I would like to say that what makes a good teacher also depends on the student. A diligent and smart kid certainly brings the best of the teacher!
Huizhong goes the extra mile in providing the best learning experience for all her students at all levels.
One thing that really impressed me was how much preparation work Huizhong does between lessons. She really does go the extra mile!
Would highly recommend.
