About Marvin

I earned my Bachelor's degree from Northern Arizona University of English in 2009 and Master's degree of Education at CSU_Long Beach in 2013. I had taught English at Xi'an International Studies University for one year before I came to the U.S. With two years of tutoring English here, I know how to motivate students' learning ability and help them improve their language skills.

I enjoy passing on knowledge to my students, I have the experience of teaching TOEFL, IELTS as well as ESL. I helped many students to get a satisfied score on their tests and improved their English skills. Students spoke highly of my teaching methods and had cultivated a good habit of learning English.

In addition, as I was born in China and had studied there for many years, I could also teach Chinese to those who wants to learn a foreign language. Many of my classmates in university had already have the ability to communicate freely with Chinese native speakers due to the lessons I taught them. I consider myself very patient and responsible, if you would like to learn a language for any purposes, please let me help you.

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 was born in China and had studied there from elementary school to university. I speak standard Mandarin with no accent. After I came to the U.S., I got many experience of teaching American students Chinese. Many of my classmates in university had already have the ability to communicate freely with Chinese native speakers due to the lessons I had taught them. They praised me for the ability of switching freely between Chinese and English while teaching. They like the way how I present my own knowledge to students using an easy and clear method.

IELTS

I enjoy passing on knowledge to my students, I have the experience of teaching TOEFL, IELTS as well as ESL. I helped many students to get a satisfied score on their tests and improved their English skills. For instance, one Chinese high school student got a 6.5 on IELTS two years ago; another Chinese middle school student got a 6.0 last year. Students spoke highly of my teaching methods and had cultivated a good habit of learning English.

On 2013, I got my Master's degree at CSU_Long Beach major in educational technology, which helped me a lot on teaching English with technology. I tried to use many teaching tools and software while giving the lessons. Most students got more attention during class and were interested in the new things they may not ever seen before. I am satisfied with my attempt and will go on learning new teaching methods.
