About Michael

I am a graduate from California State University, San Bernardino with B.A. degree in English linguistics and with 3.84 GPA. I had about seven-year experience teaching and tutoring English. I specialize in tutoring ESL to students from China. Non-Chinese speakers are also welcome. I can also tutor English or Chinese grammar, reading, and composition (writing) to college students.

I now work as an ESL and Chinese tutor at Chaffey Community College. I also tutor my twin sons (1st graders in elementary school) both for their homework and Mandarin at home every day.

My traveling areas include the city boundaries of Fontana, Rancho Cucamonga, and northern part of Ontario, with no extra charge.

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 and educated in mainland China. I studied advanced HanYu while I was at Suzhou Nornal School. I am now tutoring ZhongWen to my twin sons at home every day. The textbook I use is sponsored by the China National Educational Department and is designed specially for children of Chinese immigrants in the USA.

Elementary (K-6th)

I graduated from California State University San Bernardino with the B.A. degree in English linguistics. My GPA is 3.84. I have 6.5 year experience in teaching English to middle school students. I tutor English at Chaffey College, and I now also tutor my twin boys in their elementary school homework every day. I am good at math also.

English

I have an AA degree in English from China and BA degree in English linguistics from California State University. I have about seven year experience in teaching and tutoring English. I specialize in tutoring grammar. I am now tutoring English in Chaffey College. I also tutor my sons' homework every day.

ESL/ESOL

I have an AA degree in English from China and BA degree in English linguistics from California State University. I have about seven year experience in teaching and tutoring English. I specialize in tutoring ESL to students from China with focus on American public culture. First hour class is free of charge for your trial.

A friendly suggestion: when you are looking for an ESL tutor, you had better look for someone who majored in ESL or English linguistics, not just in general English, or in literature, or in writing. You learn how to teach only as an ESL or linguistics major.

TOEFL

I am very much familiar with TOEFL. I have an AA degree in English from China and BA degree in English linguistics from California State University. I have about seven years' experience in teaching and tutoring English. I specialize in tutoring ESL to students from China with focus on American public culture. The first hour class is free of charge for your trial.

Writing

I am a recent B.A English linguistics graduate. My GPA is 3.84. I specialize in teaching and tutoring ESL, but I am confident in tutoring writing also. I work as a tutor at Chaffey College's Language Success Center. Most students come to the center to improve their essay writing. As a tutor, we are trained to look for high-order errors to be fixed instead of focusing on low-order errors.
