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
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.
