Mandarin AND Cantonese:

My name is Stella, and I'm an experienced Chinese (both Mandarin and Cantonese) tutor. I am originally from China and now reside in New York City. As a language enthusiast myself, I am fluent in many languages-Chinese, English, Korean....just to name a few. I have self-taught different languages to myself throughout my secondary school years and as a young adult. I am passionate to share my learning secrets/methods/tricks to those who aspire to become better or fluent in foreign languages. I use the what I called "total immersion" method to learn and teach students so that you will start speaking the language naturally without the frustration of forgetting the words every now and then. Learn like a baby and talk to yourself in the language as much as possible will make you an expert! I am willing to help students with any level of fluency to achieve their dream of being a bi-lingual or multi-lingual person.

---------------
Video Production:

I have a B.A. in Mass Media concentrating on media production. I have two years of experience editing, shooting and producing videos for school projects, documentary production companies and non-profit organizations. I have had two video related positions in non-profit organizations.

I am proficient in Final Cut Pro and Adobe Premiere. I also have working knowledge of audio editing application including Soundtrack Pro, Audacity and Garageband.

Several of my documentary-style video projects have been published online in the past few months. I am going to pursue a graduate degree in filmmaking in a few months.

I am available to offer tutoring to anyone who is interested in learning the process of production and especially post-production (with Final Cut pro and Adobe Premiere).

Stella’s subjects

Adobe Illustrator

I am a trained and working graphic designer with online portfolios.

I am highly efficient in Adobe Illustrator because I use it every day at work and at school when I was studying at Pratt Institute. I know the in and outs of every tool in Adobe Illustrator.

Chinese

I am a multilingual freelance translator currently living in New York City. I have four years of freelance translation experience and 1 year of tutoring experience. I have tutored Chinese to local students in NYC and remotely via Skype. I am a native Mandarin speaker and I tutored Mandarin to study abroad advisors while in college.

I focused on tutoring speaking and listening to students, while helping them develop an interest in learning the writing system (which is recognized as one of the most difficult writing systems in the world). As a language enthusiast myself, I always share my language learning tips to students I tutor. I always emphasize that effective language learning is not about memorizing grammar. Learn a foreign language like a baby learns from his/her mother tongue is the correct and fast way to improve.

Graphic Design

I am a trained and working graphic designer. I studied computer graphics and design at Pratt Institute and have a design portfolio available online.

I am highly proficient in Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop and Adobe InDesign. I have a clean and minimalistic design style and good eye for color and typography.

Macintosh

I am an experienced Macintosh user. As a video post-production professional, Mac OSX is the only system I use on the daily basis.

I am extremely familiar with the user interface, hot keys, shortcuts, commands and popular mac softwares and applications. In addition, I am also familiar with industry standard creative suites such as Adobe InDesign, Dreamweaver etc.

Whether you are looking for basic lessons to familiarize yourself with the Macintosh operating system or are looking for more advanced techniques, I will be happy to help you.
