Hello! My name is Winnie. Welcome to my WyzAnt page. I would like to share some information about my personal and tutoring background, which I hope will help you decide whether or not to consider me as your language tutor (hopefully the answer is yes!).
I was born in China and completed junior high there. I grew up speaking both Mandarin and Cantonese. In my mid-teens, I immigrated with my family to the U.S. Despite the fact that I came to this country at a challenging age and barely spoke any English, I got A's in all my language-rated classes (including French) in high school. In only a couple of years, I spoke English well enough to land a summer job as a cashier at a busy restaurant in New York's Midtown Manhattan. How did I learn so quickly? The answer is simple: I just loved studying languages! So it's no surprise that I enjoy helping others with their language learning.
So what sets me apart from other tutors?
First, my specialty is language tutoring, and that is my ONLY focus! I don't teach other subjects like many other tutors do, and I can focus what I know and can do best: teaching Chinese and English/ESL!:-)
Second, I'm a responsible and caring teacher (I'm also a mom of two teenagers!). As you can see from my WyzAnt page, I've gotten one of the highest percentages of top-rating-per-lesson ratio (lessons range from 1 to 2 hours), meaning my students have rated most of my lessons and with 5-STAR RATINGS! They've also written FANTASTIC REVIEWS for me. As one of my youngest students' mom told me, "the reason my son pays attention to you is because YOU LISTEN to him, and he is simply returning you the favor!"
So if you want an effective tutor who truly cares about her students, you will want to hire me!
Thank you for taking the time to read my profile, and I hope to work with you soon.
