My name is Clara and I speak both Mandarin and English fluently.

I've been English & Chinese Tutor for 7+ years, SAT & TOEFL Tutor for 4+ years and Statistics Tutor for 1 year. My students range from no English background to graduate school preparation. I'm glad to see that one of my students increased SAT reading score by 170 and others achieved enrollment of high schools such as Linden Hall, and colleges including Rutgers, PSU etc. My certification is National Mandarin Test Class B - First. Honors received include National Cross-Stratis Interpretation Competition Third Prize 15th Hubei Translation and Interpretation Competition First Prize.

I believe in the combination of comprehensive teaching and effective methods in study. If you would like to find a tutor who is not only great at language tutoring, but also nice enough to be your friend, I'm the one!

Chinese

As an English major student in the college, I passed the TME 8 (national test for major of English, grade 8) and also acquired the certificate of Mandarin Chinese level B+. I am the winner of many translation and interpretation competitions, as well as Chinese culture contests. I have 3 years of tutoring experience during college, one for Chinese and two for English. Besides tutoring, I also helped a Mandarin Chinese education institution with marketing and promotion.

I studied English from primary school and I majored in English for 4 college years. I passed the GRE and TOEFL and studied in America for 2 years up till now. I love English.
