EducationCurrently a medical student at Duke University School of Medicine. Graduated from Harvard College in 2012 (magna cum laude) majoring in Neurobiology and Global Health and Health Policy. Received a citation in Chinese.
ExperienceI am a Harvard grad with 7+ years of private tutoring experience in a variety of subjects, including Chinese, pre-calculus, SAT Math, AP US History, English, biology, physics, and ACT. I have worked as a college consultant by helping to revise personal statements and essays, and ultimately helped students get into the colleges of their choices.
I scored within the top 1% for the MCAT (40) and ACT (34). I also scored 5s on AP Biology, AP World History, AP American History, AP Calculus BC, and AP Statistics. I scored 800 on SAT II Math C, 760 on SAT II Biology, and 730 on SAT II US History.
I am a native Chinese speaker. In college, I have taken the highest level of Chinese and spent a year in China honing my language skills.
As a person who has helped many students overcome their struggles in different subjects, I love tutoring to help others better understand material with the techniques that I have developed over the years.
HobbiesOne of my major hobbies is website design/development, which I freelance for. I also like to play some sports, such as swimming, tennis, cycling, etc.

Yingna is an excellent tutor. She catered to my needs and helped me focus on my weaknesses. She is great at giving advice in test-taking and study strategies. She has helped me raise my score by 5 points! I highly recommend her to anyone who is considering taking the MCAT!
Yingna tutored my junior high school student for 8 months in Biology, Calculus, AP US History and AP Chinese. She was very warm, friendly and intelligent. My daughter said that Yingna explained things in a way that made sense and enabled her remember them. She was also very flexible about times to meet and extremely responsible about being on time, etc. If she was still in the Boston area, she would still be tutoring my daughter. We feel very fortunate to have stumbled on to her posting.
