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 a formally trained and certified Chinese language teacher with over 21 years practical teaching and tutoring experience. I received a Teacher’s certificate in 1985 from Suining Teacher’s School (Sichuan Province, China), and taught Mandarin Chinese for 8 years at Gaosheng Elementary School in Suining, China. During this time, I continued my studies and received a diploma in Chinese Language and Literature from Sichuan University in Chengdu, China (1990). In 1993 I moved to Guangxi Province to teach at Minle Road Elementary School, which is recognized as the top elementary school in the capital city of Nanning. I taught at Minle elementary for 13 years, until I immigrated to the U.S. in 2006. In addition to teaching in the classroom, I tutored students at home for several years, either one-on-one or in small groups in Mandarin and written Chinese. I received multiple awards from the Chinese government in recognition of my excellent teaching skills.

I can tailor my lessons based on the age, background and interest of the student. Whether you want to gain basic conversational skills, improve grammar and pronunciation, or learn to read and write in Chinese, I can provide excellent and interesting instruction. For students that want to learn to write in Chinese, I recommend computer-based character entry, as this reduces the amount of memorization and practice, which speeds up the learning process. For students that want to learn the art form of Chinese characters, I can teach you basic calligraphy skills, with traditional ink brush methods.
