About Mingyuan

Dear student and parents,

It is my great pleasure to introduce myself to you. I am a high school teacher major in Mandarin language and Biology.
I possess degrees of Ph.D. in Biology, as well as Master and Bachelor of Education. I am a Chinese-born American, who can speak and write fluent Mandarin, because Mandarin is my native language. Beside the academic degrees mentioned above, I also possess five certificates including the Certificates of Superior level of Chinese Language Oral Proficiency Interview (OPI) and Writing Proficiency Test (WPT) issued by American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Language (ACTFL); the Certificate of Senior Chinese language Instructor training; the Certificate of Standard Oral Chinese (Mandarin) Proficiency; as well as the Certificate of Psychological Consultation. All these indicate that I am a high rank Mandarin teacher with high quality.
Currently, I am a formal teacher in Mandarin and Biology in a high school in Atlanta. I also teach Mandarin in weekend in a community Chinese school in Marietta. I also have American students who take private lessons with me to learn both Mandarin and Biology. I am very proud to tell you that no matter where I teach, my students love me as a person and loved my teaching as their teacher, because I am knowledgeable, patient, friendly, and always eager to help them.
How do I teach my students? Here is my teaching philosophy: I teach students in accordance with their aptitude; educate someone according to his natural ability; modify one's way of teaching to suit the special requirements of each class or case; suit the teaching to the ability of the individual pupil.
My teaching strategy totally depends on the age of my students and their level of experience and knowledge of subjects they study. I prefer a personalized education, which means that I would teach my student according his/her characteristics and their goals. To help a student make significant progress, I will make a personalized teaching plan. Discussion and communication would take place often between my student and I, because this will help me learn about my students and meet their needs.
Is Chinese or Biology difficult to learn? It really depends how you look at it. I would say that studying Chinese and Biology can be fun, and that is the experience I would like to create for my students. My goal is to provide a low-pressure environment while maintaining student interest in learning the knowledge.
I prefer a goal-oriented teaching strategy. From the very beginning, I will ask my potential students about what goals they want to achieve from my class. From there, my student and I will work together to set up both short-term and long-term goals for the classes. I will help you make progress and achieve your goals based on the time frame that we set up in the beginning.
With all of that said, I would like to underscore that you will get out of this class what you put into it. Practice, practice, and practice! Together with me, we will go through a lot of practice, because only practice allows you to learn real and useful knowledge.
If you have any questions, I will be more than happy to discuss them with you.
Please feel free to call or email me. I am sure you won’t be disappointed.

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 an English/Mandarin speaking Chinese-born American. I possess a Ph.D. degree in biomedical science and a B.Ed. in Chinese language. Besides these academic degrees, I also possess three certificates in Chinese language teaching, Standard Chinese (Mandarin) Proficiency and psychological consultation.

I have two years of experience teaching Chinese language and third grade math in an elementary school, and have three years of experience teaching Chinese language in a high school when I was in China. After obtaining my master degree, I joined a volunteer teaching team and was sent by the government to a less developed area in northern China to train local middle school English language teachers in 1987. During that time, I worked as the group leader of an English teaching group. I am proud to tell you that no matter where I taught, my students loved me as a person and loved my teaching as their teacher, because I was knowledgeable, patient, friendly, and always eager to help them.
