My private tutoring experience began in 1977 while being a freshman in college. Differentiated instruction is given to the student based on his/her needs. I never believe in rote memorization, and instead always focus on concept development and critical thinking skill. Besides private tutoring, I was teaching Mandarin at the Institute of Modern Languages at University of Queensland in Brisbane, Australia, for two years. I had also taught Mandarin at South Pasadena High School in a part-time capacity before I became a classroom teacher at an elementary school in Los Angeles in September, 2005. This is my third year teaching 6th grade class after teaching 2nd grade for three years. Majority of my 6th grade students became high achievers at the end of the school year, which I am most proud of.

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 was born and grew up in Taipei, Taiwan. After obtaining single-subject credential in Chinese a year and a half ago, I have been teaching Mandarin at Duarte School District in a full-time capacity. Besides working with elementary students for the past 9 years, I have also been teaching Chinese at a Chinese school on Saturdays for the past three years. I ensure that learning the language is fun and meaningful to my students and am proud of my students' achievements.
