Weike, pronounced Why-Key, was born in Nanjing, China but spent her childhood in Australia, Canada and America. She is fluent in both Chinese and English. In high school, Weike completed an International Baccalaureate program (scoring 7’s on advanced English, math, chemistry and physics) and achieved a perfect ACT score. She went on to earn her BA in Chemistry and English at Harvard College and graduated cum laude. Weike recently completed her doctorate in cancer epidemiology at the Harvard School of Public Health as well as her MFA in creative writing at BU.
Weike tutors for the SAT, the ACT, the GMAT, the GRE and the MCAT, all tests that she has taken and scored within the highest percentiles. She has seen dozens of students through the testing process and has a proven track record of raising scores. Since each student, Weike spends a great deal of time preparing a personalized curriculum that hones strengths and targets weaknesses. She also believes that the right test strategies can propel a student into a smart and savvy test taker. Above all, Weike emphasizes the understanding of concepts over rote memorization. She has been able to help students grasp concepts that they thought were formally out of their reach.
In her free time, Weike writes--she has won creative writing awards from Harvard, Glimmer Train magazine, and her work has been published in Smokelong Quarterly, Redivider and Alaska Quarterly Review. She recently published her first novel, Chemistry, with Knopf.
