My Chinese name is Shan-Shan, but you can call me Sharon. I am patient, thoughtful and kind. I was born and raised in China. I am also a native speaker in both Mandarin and Cantonese. In Winter of 2012, I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from the University of California, riverside and also a minor in Asian Literature and Culture. I took courses in college where Chinese Mandarin is the only spoken and written language in class. I began to tutor a non-native Chinese speaker in February of 2013 and enjoyed it the process of tutoring. Thus, I would like to expand my career in tutoring as well as in teaching. After only a couple lessons with my student, not only can she now speak the basic level of Mandarin, but she can also read and write simplified Chinese characters. Each time I meet up with her, her ability to speak, read and write in simplified Chinese Characters has improved. According to different needs from each individuals, I will help each one of my students learn and focus on the areas where they need improvements. Most importantly, my lessons are designed to help students to learn and form daily conversations with Chinese speakers. I enjoy helping and seeing each one of my student succeed.
