About Pearl

I am a certified Teacher and currently teaching in Alpharetta, GA. I have worked as a translator/interpreter for a variety of business clients. I had a lot of training before I start to become a teacher.

My private tutoring style is both encouraging and straight to the point. I'm teaching student from preschooler to adult. I welcome all levels and age! Home-schoolers, too!

My passion for teaching allows me to broaden my students' intellectual curiosity so that they can excel academically. Some of my high school students achieved perfect scores on their AP Chinese course.

I enjoy teaching, and seeing my students get most out of my teaching is a profound joy to me. I have helped hundreds of students successful, and I hope I will assist you, too.

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 received a Masters degree in Business. I'm a native Chinese who is a certified teacher in GA. I have 20+ years’ experience of translation/interpretation servicing to a wide range of students and corporate clients.

I enjoy teaching Chinese, and I welcome the opportunity to help you learn it. If you are interested in learning Chinese, or if you are interested improving Chinese, I can help you become proficient. Please contact me now!

Elementary Math

If you are looking for a highly qualified math teacher, I am the one!

Knowing math and teaching math do not always go hand in hand. I instill appreciation and enjoyment of math in all its myriads forms. I value each of my student and communicate well with them. I always teach my students a varieties of skills besides math: such as classroom management, organization, critical thinking skills and many others. Furthermore, I always follow the curriculum according to guidelines.

English

I have been a private English tutor for 15 years. I obtained my Master Degree in Business Management in England before I moved to the US.

Currently, I am teaching at private schools, and tutoring K-12 students English Writing, Reading, Phonics, Math and Science.

It's my goal to make learning a happy experience for my students.

ESL/ESOL

I am an experienced ESL instructor. One of my Chinese students learned how to speak English and got an A+ in only short two weeks after I started teaching her.

I have a masters degree and am very good at teaching ESL, which I have been doing for years.

Martial Arts

For the past 25 years, I have been practicing and teaching Tai Chi.

The first class, I cover the history of Tai Chi, the proper breathing techniques, and some of the basic movements the student will build on over a series of classes. It’s not about who’s the strongest or the fastest; it’s about flowing through each movement and finding that sense of release.

The following lessons I move my student into a full routine. If someone is struggling with a move, I incorporate a different movement into the routine for them. Then it’s time to lead the class through the exercises in a steady rhythm.

In between teaching groups, I work one-on-one with students to create a personalized routine that best fits them.

Public Speaking

I have a Master degree. I am a vice president of the public relation of one of the clubs at Toastmaster International. It's my great honor to win District 44 Area H 2015 International Speech Contest 1st Place. As a professional teacher, I would love to share my passion of Public Speaking with my students.

Yoga

I have taught Yoga to school students for two years and have ability to relate to and work with people of diverse backgrounds. I can instruct safe and effective group exercise classes that meet the needs of all participants, beginning and ending classes on time. I always plan and provide appropriate and motivating music and exercises for class.

Patient and encouraging. — I am very satisfied with tutoring sessions for my 6yr old daughter. She recently moved from China and is learning English now. Pearl is able to explain things in Mandarin if needed. I find Pearl to be a caring, patient and encouraging tutor. My daughter enjoys the tutoring time with Pearl. Pearl makes the lessons fun and engaging for children. I like that Pearl always is identifying trouble spots ...
