About Darryl

I have one year of experience tutoring Mandarin Chinese, and I am certified to teach Mandarin Chinese in Connecticut schools with an ACTFL rating of Mid-Advanced in both speaking and writing. I studied Chinese for seven years in Northeast China, and over the phone my accent is difficult to distinguish as non-native.

I have five years of experience teaching ESL to learners of all ages in a classroom setting as well as two years of experience tutoring ESL.

My teaching-style for both Mandarin and ESL focuses and conversation and writing, production abilities that are key to learning a foreign language. I believe that by immersing students in the language they will learn faster than if the majority of the class was taken in their native language.

Thank you for your interest in me. I believe that learning a foreign language is important for everyone's future and a lot of fun to boot, and I hope I can be a part of that!

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 certified by the state in Mandarin Chinese grades K-12. My ACTFL Mandarin scores in both writing and speaking are advanced-mid. I passed the advanced HSK (old format) with a score of 10. I lived in China for seven years.

SAT Reading

I have tutored a number of students on SAT reading for two years. The average improvement my students made was 123 points, but more importantly they all became stronger readers and writers and that has helped them in their college life.
