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.

Adobe InDesign

I use Adobe InDesign regularly for my publication layout and advertisement design services, which are published in newspapers, magazines and marketing materials.

AutoCAD

I use AutoCAD regularly at my Landscape Architectural practice. I have taught AutoCAD drafting classes at UC Davis for many years.

Chinese

I was born and raised in Beijing, China. I went to college in China. I have a very clear pronunciation of the Putonghua, and I enjoy discussing the Chinese culture with people.

Drawing

I was trained in drafting and architectural drawing, and in pencil sketches. The understanding of line weight, light and shadow is key to creating a good black and white drawing.

Painting

As a landscape architect and graphic design artist, I use different media to create landscape and floral paintings. I enjoy watercolor and gouache.

Public Speaking

My teaching experience in college classes for many years prepared me very well for public speaking. I'm a charter member and an officer for a Toastmasters club.
Also in the past 2 years, I've been involved with many events and organizations where I need to speak in front of an audience.
