As a native Chinese Mandarin speaker who received college education in both China and U.S.A, I have been teaching Mandarin Chinese and English/Math for fourteen years in the US. The Confucius Institute of Emory University selected me as the Chinese Teacher of 2014 for its Chinese Bridge Summer Camp Program designed for high school students of Georgia.

I am a certified Chinese Teacher and currently teaching in Alpharetta. My students are from age three to age sixty plus. In my class, you not only learn to speak and read/write Chinese fluently, but you build up your understanding of the Chinese history and culture as well, which is crucially important for those who want to do business with China. I also have worked as a translator/interpreter for a variety of business and government clients, such as the Chinese business delegations, the Forsyth County School District, peanut farmer trade organizations of Georgia.

My private tutoring style is both encouraging and straight to the point. I spend time to individualize and prepare subject according to each student's unique needs. I am patient and friendly as a teacher and I also require my students to put in their efforts. My passion for teaching allows me to broaden my students' intellectual curiosity so that they can excel academically. Some of my high school students achieved perfect or very high scores on their AP Chinese course.

Seeing my students get most out of my teaching is a profound joy to me. I have helped hundreds of students successful, and I hope I will assist you soon, too.

Chinese

I'm a native Chinese Mandarin speaker and received a Masters degree in Business. I have taught Mandarin Chinese and English privately for 14 years and served as the Chinese Teacher of 2014 Chinese Bridge Summer Camp Program, which organized by the Confucius Institute at Emory University, for high school students in metro Atlanta. I also have 20+ years’ experience of translation/interpretation servicing to a wide range of students and clients, including Chinese business delegations, Forsyth County School District. I'm a certified Chinese Teacher and currently teaching at a school in Duluth.

Students I have taught range in age from 3 years old to 60+. The high school students achieved perfect or very high scores in their AP Chinese course. If you have dedicated yourself to learning Chinese language, wish to travel to China or Mandarin-speaking regions of the world, or consider building a business alliance with Chinese people, you are welcome to learn with me.

Elementary Math

If you are looking for a highly qualified math teacher, I am the one!

Knowing math and teaching math do not always go hand in hand. I instill appreciation and enjoyment of math in all its myriads forms. I value each of my student and communicate well with them. I always teach my students a varieties of skills besides math: such as classroom management, organization, critical thinking skills and many others. Furthermore, I always follow the curriculum according to guidelines.

ESL/ESOL

I am an experienced ESL instructor. One of my Chinese students learned how to speak English and got an A+ in only short two weeks after I started teaching her.

I have a masters degree and am very good at teaching ESL, which I have been doing for years.

Phonics

I have been teaching phonics both at school and in private lessons for eight years. My students enjoy learning phonics with me. Their spelling improved quickly.

Reading

I hold a Master's degree in Business and have great Reading, Writing and ELA knowledge.

Study Skills

I have helped many frustrated students improved their grades and motivated in learning. Study skills which can boost a student's ability to study and achieve higher scores (exam strategies); including motivational techniques, time management, memorization, communication (Reading and Listening), time management, organization and etc., will be covered in our classes.

Yoga

I have taught Yoga to school students for two years and have ability to relate to and work with people of diverse backgrounds. I can instruct safe and effective group exercise classes that meet the needs of all participants, beginning and ending classes on time. I always plan and provide appropriate and motivating music and exercises for class.

Patient and encouraging. — I am very satisfied with tutoring sessions for my 6yr old daughter. She recently moved from China and is learning English now. Pearl is able to explain things in Mandarin if needed. I find Pearl to be a caring, patient and encouraging tutor. My daughter enjoys the tutoring time with Pearl. Pearl makes the lessons fun and engaging for children. I like that Pearl always is identifying trouble spots ...
