Do you want to be an eloquent speaker and writer in both English and Mandarin Chinese, or become a computer literate? A seasoned instructor is right in your neighborhood. I have two decades experience in helping people to pass their tests (i.e. TOEFL, PSAT), writing academic essays, and get them ready for new jobs (i.e. computer skills, public speaking). I am also a professional translator (Mandarin Chinese and English) for International Conferences, and Health Care and Legal Institutes. I enjoy working with all ages of people. My clients in the past ranged from teens, college students, to adult learners and professionals.

My approach to tutoring is client-centered. I like to discover the needs and strengths of my clients first, and then plan lessons by which their skills and sense of accomplishment can be boosted. I assess the progress of my clients attentively, and make necessary adjustments promptly. After teaching at the college level for three decades, I am deeply aware that there are no universal effective learning methods for everyone. Therefore, my teaching methods are customized to meet the special needs of my clients.

Personality-wise, I'm witty, easy-going and intelligent. I like to tell stories and create a relaxed, but intellectually stimulating learning environment. I respect client's autonomy in the process of learning, but inspire them with effective teaching methods.

Bible Studies

I have three degrees in regard to the Biblical studies.

Chinese

I am a native Mandarin Chinese speaker and writer. I have been a College Professor for the last twenty years in both Taiwan and the United States.

I taught Mandarin Chinese in the Chinese school and College for years and acted as a translator for the International Conferences, meetings, and medical professions.

English

Would you like to know the secrets of speaking and writing English like your own native language? I'm the right tutor for you.

You won't believe that I could merely say "You're a boy" and that's an apple" when I first arrived United States as a Ph.D student two decades ago.

Now, I'm a recipient of Excellent teaching Award, an honoree of Who is who American, and a professor of University teaching the subjects of Philosophy, Religion and Humanities. Plus, a lover of American ladies. You can't bit that.

ESL/ESOL

Now, I'm a recipient of Excellent teaching Award, an honoree of Who is who American, and a professor of University teaching the subjects of Philosophy, Religion and Humanities. Plus, a lover of American ladies. You can't beat that.

Microsoft Word

I have all certifications for teaching the Microsoft Office Suite: It includes Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, Access; I also like to play with Photoshop and Dreamweaver if you're interested in creating your own website.

Public Speaking

I have been teaching at the college level for three decades. My students always say that my class always gets their attention, and is fun and inspiring.

My secret of successful speech is that, in addition to good content, we also need to polish our non-verbal communicative skills, i.e., smiling, opening arms, animated expression, etc., making the connection between the content of speech and people's life experiences, and citing stories or real-life examples to back up your points.

Religion

I have Ph.D in this area.

TOEFL

I definitely can help you. I had to get at least 600 points in order to pass my second language requirement for my Ph.D. twenty years ago. After years of preparation and re-taking the tests, I finally passed the requirement with great scores.

I have been teaching in the United States for the last two decades. I know the cultural, political, and daily stuffs very well which are very important part of TOEFL tests.

In addition, I come in with a team. My significant one and good friends are American teachers. If we have problem in figuring out some of issues in the exam, I can get help from them without any extra charges.

Writing

I'm a philosopher with great skills of analysis and critical thinking. I have to read at least 400 college students' essay every year, and come out with some suggestions for them to improve their works.

I am very creative in finding catch phrases for the topic sentences; spotting the inconsistency in the development of thesis, and drawing the powerful conclusion to wrap up the essay.

We can always start with the reading material that interests you, and then write a short reflection on it. Along the way, I'll help you to summarize the key ideas presented in the readings, organize your thoughts logically, and express them in the paper.

Yoga

I'm a certified Yoga instructor.
