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.

Connie is amazing and talented! She's multilingual which was why I sought after her for assistance in both Japanese and Mandarin. She's also been very adaptable to my progress and attentive to my learning abilities--I tend to learn phrases/expressions very quickly and I need to put in a lot more frustrating effort into mastering characters/sound syllables as I struggle with that part. She can also
