Hi students/parents,

I go by Alex. I am a full-time professional for one of the employers in the Seattle area, a native Mandarin speaker, and I got a master's degree in economics from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I am looking for tutoring opportunities to expand my network here.

I can tutor in the following two areas:

First, the language Mandarin. Being a native Mandarin speaker means I know everything about the language: writing, speaking, listening, reading, grammar, vocab, composition, tones, you name it. I've also got experience translating a book in English to Chinese, so, I'm fairly confident in it.

Second, being an economics graduate, my math skill is above average. Throughout the years at school I've practiced tons of math questions, including calculus, linear algebra, probability, statistics, differential equations, all the high school-level and college-level math you can think of. I can tutor any of the above mentioned, or any lower level math subject.

So this is what I'm capable of. If you are interested in either or both of the above mentioned areas, then we should talk.

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.

Chinese

I am qualified to be a Mandarin tutor. I am a native Mandarin speaker. I spent my childhood in Taiwan, which is about 15 years. Then I attended college in Beijing, China, which is four years. So, I have been speaking Mandarin as my first language for almost 20 years. Plus, because of my experience in both China and Taiwan, I know both traditional and simplified Chinese.(In China they use the simplified system, but in other countries with Chinese population, like Hong Kong or Taiwan, they use the traditional system.)

I am also very close to native in English. On and off I have been living in the US for close to ten years. I have no issue when it comes to explaining Mandarin in English.

I have a master's degree in economics from the University of Illinois. Although it's not in education, you can rest assured that I am very knowledgeable in most of the subjects they teach in school.
