I have been a Chinese language tutor in my undergraduate university in Beijing. I participated in a program that ran jointly by EU and Chinese government called "The EU-China Managers Exchange and Training Programme (METP)." It is a big program that introduces many business managers who want to expand their business in China to learn Chinese language in advance with the help of our Chinese university students. I was selected to be one of the 40 tutors out of hundreds of candidates for excellent oral English communication and I successfully helped a Spanish gentleman and a very smart Italian lady finish their studies in our university.
As for the tutoring methods, I prefer to use different methods according to different kind of people. Take the Spanish gentleman for an example, he easily got bored by the text book, so I usually arranged some activities such as The Forbidden City Walk, or the Great Wall Tour as a very effective way to teach him. He can remember the vocabulary and grammar structure very quickly by the vivid description of the traditional Chinese culture. He was quite impressive by this kind of teaching method. As for the Italian lady, she is more sit-down type and would like to do more exercises; therefore, I bring many elementary and easy-to-understand novels. Besides the text book, she learned more through the books and understood the meaning much more quickly than her classmates. Her teacher praised her at the closing ceremony and she was one of the highest honor students.
I am a current graduate student at University of Southern California, my major is Communication management. And my undergraduate major is Finance, I have got a 680/750 score on GMAT, among which the quantitative section is 92%.
