I am a native Chinese Mandarin speaker, reader and writer. I was born, raised and educated in Taiwan but have lived in US for almost 30 years. I graduated from UC Berkeley with a Computer Science degree. I tutored elementary and middle school students in Math throughout my college years and really enjoyed watching kids improving their skills through my teaching.

After graduating from UC Berkeley, I worked in High-Tech industry as a Senior Marketing Professional for many years. It was fun and taught me how to deal with different personalities. This was also when I tutored professionals in Chinese Mandarin to help improving their connection to Chinese manufacturers.

As my kids going through schools, I volunteered frequently as a teaching assistant in the classroom. I really enjoyed working with kids and transferring my knowledge to the next generation. From teaching and assisting my own kids through elementary and middle school (and even high school now), I have learned many tips and tricks to get young kids motivated in learning. I want to utilize what I have learned to help other kids succeed.

I am fluent in speaking, reading and writing in both Chinese and English. For Chinese, I am very focused on teaching the correct pronunciations because different tones in Chinese can have very different meanings. It is extremely important to pronounce correctly so that people can understand. I can teach all levels and am especially good with kids.

I can also help kids who are struggling in elementary school education. I will teach them the right study habit so that they can carry on to middle school and high school. I am experienced in teaching k-6 math and pre algebra and algebra 1. My two sons have always been placed in Advanced Math level in schools throughout their school years because of my tutoring and guidance.

I welcome students to come to my home or I can teach in student's home as long as a quiet learning environment is provided. My schedule is currently flexible. However, I do require a 24-hour cancellation notice for schedule planning purpose.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Chinese

I am a native Chinese Mandarin speaker. This is my first language and I am fluent in speaking, reading and writing. I have tutored hi-tech professionals in Mandarin to help them improving their connections and communications with China manufacturers. I have also started tutoring young kids in learning Mandarin as the demand increases. I am a passionate and fun tutor who knows how to deal with different personalities and is especially good with kids.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a UC Berkeley graduate with a Computer Science degree. I have tutored many elementary students (k-6) in all elementary school subjects but focusing on Math during my 4 college years.

After having my own kids, I was a frequent teaching assistant in their elementary classrooms for 6 years where I gained the valuable experience of tailoring my teaching style to fit different needs. I taught kids who struggled in writing the basic writing structure and how to be descriptive and specific about what they write. For kids who struggled in math, I translated math problems from words and numbers to visual graphs whenever possible to help kids understand the concepts better. I used various games to help kids learn history and science. I really enjoyed working with kids and helping them grow and improve.

I am a passionate and fun tutor. Your kids will have fun with me while improving their grades.

Elementary Math

I have extensive experience in working with elementary school kids on improving their Math skills. I teach them not only the basic fundamental computational skills but also the techniques of translating word problems into graphs or visible imageries so that the relation of the given information is clearly understood.

Study Skills

I have tutored elementary school and middle school kids for more than 6 years and study skills are always a major part of my teaching. These important skills, to name a few, include time management, priority setting, test-taking, notes-taking, content outlining and workload balancing. I have taught kids how to prioritize their work based on due date and grading weight, how to plan ahead and learn divide and conquer techniques. I have also taught students when studying for a test, as they read through the material, how to sense what questions are most likely to appear on the test so that they can better prepare for it. I help students establish a quiet working environment and a study routine that fit their individual needs so that they can carry on in the future. My goal is to help my students become successful in schools.
