About Wei

I am a dynamic person with 20 years of experience in various jobs. I came from Shanghai, China, living and working around Almaden valley, San Jose, 95120. I am a diligent, reliable person, and have a positive attitude no matter what I am doing. I am also a creative person, and I like to find different ways to prompt students’ imagination and curiosity. I am also very warmhearted and humorous which makes me easy to be accepted by different ages.
I majored in art and design in college and earned the master's degree in design. I have been cultivating in drawing and painting since I was a teenager. I hope I can share my knowledge with others. I try to broaden students' point of view beyond the textbook through some extra materials.
Now I work part time as a Chinese after school teacher. I am also the private Mandarin teacher of three families, and I have taught two of the families for more than one year. The students have made great progress under my instruction. Most of all, they become more interested in learning Chinese.
As a native Chinese speaker, my pronunciation is standard. I accumulate extensive knowledge and firm foundation in classical Chinese literature. I can help with the practicing and correcting pronunciation. Besides, I also teach Chinese culture and background, or anything related to Chinese.
If you give me the opportunity, you will find that I am the teacher you are looking for.

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.

Architecture

I got my landscape architecture bachelor's in Chongqing University, an aged traditional architecture university in China in 1994. Since graduation, I join a well-know company to take the design job. Through years of developing, I became a senior architect in charge of the designing group. Since then, lots of houses and commercial buildings designed by me were built or under construction in China.

While I was in charge of the daily design job in my company, I help train and instruct the new staff to accommodate the new circumstance at the same time. I taught them how to understand the design principles and help to revise the design scheme, how to use design software, and so on. I mastered almost all the software used in design job. For example: AutoCAD, Sketchup, Photoshop, Indesign, etc.

Ten years after my graduation, I pursued advanced studies, graduated from Tongji University, which is one of most famous university in China, with master's degree majored in architecture design. So totally I have engaged in architecture design for more than 20 years.

When I came to San Jose, I taught several subjects in after school, including: fun art, Chinese, and computer skills. Though it is not long for the teaching job, while based on my past experience, I can handle different situations in tutoring.

I hope I can share my knowledge with people who have a thirst for architecture just like me.

AutoCAD

I master almost all the software used in design. For example: AutoCAD, Sketchup, Photoshop, Indesign, etc. During my 20 years working procedure, I use drawing software to present the design idea every day.

I engage in various jobs for more than 20 years. My native language is Chinese. I graduated from famous university in China with master's degree majored in design. Now I have been tutoring private Chinese class for 6 families. At the same time, I am a Chinese after school teacher teaching 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade teaching Mandarin.

Drawing

I have engage in drawing\painting\designing for more than 20 years since I was a teenager. Graduated from famous university in China with master degree majored in design. I am comfortable to teaching kids under 12. Now I am the Chinese after school teacher teaching Mandarin, at the same time, I am also the teacher of fun art.

As you know, design needs solid painting and drawing foundation. A designer presents his idea with brushes and pencils. We were trained according to the artist criterion. Moreover, before I got in the university, I have engaged in drawing/painting/designing for more than 10 years since I was a young kid.

When I came to San Jose, I taught several subjects in some afterschools, including: fun art, craft, and computer skills. Though it is not long for the teaching job, while based on my past experience, I can handle different situations in tutoring.
