About Connie

My passion for tutoring started when I started learning Japanese in college. Every day, as I learned Japanese, I would voluntarily teach my Japanese tutors Mandarin and English as a gratitude in return. Given that English is my second language, I understand the challenges of a beginner. In addition, I have developed methods that help students learn effectively.

I enjoy the coaching process, and I feel accomplished when I see students master every little phrase from scratch. Also, I love having conversations with people from different age groups and backgrounds. These conversations have helped me understand the way of different cultures. I am a native speaker of Cantonese and Mandarin and have acquired Japanese proficiency through college study. I am looking forward to meeting you and answering your questions.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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 because I am a native speaker in Cantonese and Mandarin, and have been tutoring for 6 years. I studied Chinese language at UC Davis and was also a teacher's assistance to help students to correct their grammar and pronunciation. My students range from elementary students to adults, from different ethnicity and cultural backgrounds. Because of this, I understand the challenges students have based on their ethnicity and cultural backgrounds. Since I believe learning should be a fun activity, I heavily utilize social media such as YouTube, drama, songs, etc, to create an environment to help students immerse into the Chinese language.

Japanese

I graduated at UC Davis with B.A. degree in Japanese.

Kind, Flexible Tutor

Connie did a great job of assessing my current level. She asks me open-ended questions about the Genki chapter that help me with my listening and conversational skills. She is flexible with the pace of the lesson, knowing which exercises to emphasize. She is patient as I process my response to a question, which is especially helpful for someone learning and soft-spoken.
