About Sheng Yi

I'm a private tutor for Chinese/Mandarin and Spanish. I mostly teach conversational Mandarin and Spanish, however, I am also able to teach some beginner writing (grammar) and reading as well.

I have a multicultural background, born in the Dominican Republic and lived in Ecuador, Honduras, Panama, Taiwan and the U.S.A. Through all this traveling, I have acquired multiple learning and teaching methods for non native Spanish and Mandarin speakers.

I have experience teaching young children from age 3-5 at the Chinese School of Central Florida. I utilized a fun yet challenging environment for a more effective learning experience. Some of the activities utilized in the class included dancing and singing (learning Chinese through plays and presentations) and also by only speaking to children in Mandarin. I believe children learn faster when it comes to them naturally and when they're having fun.

I also have 3 years' experience teaching conversational Spanish and Mandarin to adults from 25-35 years old. Most of the time I bring students to different environments and accompany them to do different activities together to expose them to new vocabularies and new conversational skills.

In addition to languages, I also teach Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and In Design CS5. I have 3 Technical Certificates for: Interactive Design Support, Graphics Design production, and Graphics Design Support.

For the technical/art field, I have 1 year of experience tutoring college students (age ranging from 18-25). I utilize tutorials, practice activities and flash cards to help the student understand technical terms and apply the knowledge by working on their own creative projects.

Overall, I adjust the teachings according to the student's learning method: visual, auditory, and kinesthetic. I truly believe every student has the potential to learn anything as long as they are given the material in the most natural way for them to perceive. Although I encourage students to learn in a fun environment, I also keep in mind the importance of following guidelines and deadlines to make the learning process more efficient.

Miscellaneous test scores:
I have obtained a score of 800 on the Chinese SAT subject test on Nov 2008
I passed the CLEP exam for Elementary Spanish I and II on 2011.
I also passed the AP Portfolio Design on 2009.
TOEFL PBT scores Jan 2009: 623 out of 677.

I'm a native Chinese Mandarin speaker from Taiwan Republic of China. I have attended school in Taiwan during the age 11-14.

I have also taught young children age 3-5 at the Chinese School of Central Florida for a year.
I utilize flash cards to enrich the student's vocabulary.

For practical conversation for adults, I usually encourage students to go out with me and walk around malls, public places to learn how to make a conversation on a daily basis.

For practical conversation for children, I teach students to sing Chinese songs or play games with flash cards to make the learning more fun.

Spanish

I'm Chinese Dominican. Spanish is my first language.

I have received Spanish education up until high school level.

I have been a tutor in conversational Spanish for more than 3 years, mostly focusing in Speaking/Conversation, all levels. Although I also have experience in teaching Reading Spanish, as well as Writing/grammar (Beginner and Intermediate level).
