About Ying

I am a native Chinese speaker. In 2015 and 2016, I taught a First-Year Chinese course at the University of Michigan to undergraduates for two semesters. I am teaching a Mandarin class part-time in an independent school in Sun Valley. In my spare time, I would like to help individuals learn Chinese, a fascinating language, in a systematic and effective way. I differentiate my tutoring for students from different linguistic backgrounds and make individualized learning plans tailored for their level of proficiency. A teaching method I always use is to compare the target language to students' first language. By comparison, students will discover the similarities that exist in both languages, which would make the learning of a new language less daunting and more relevant to their daily experiences.

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'm a native Chinese speaker and I studied Chinese-to-English translation in college. I have passed CATTI (China Accreditation Test for Translators and Interpreters), which is the most authoritative accreditation test for bilingual translation or interpretation proficiency. I'm currently pursuing my master's degree in education at the University of Michigan. At the same time, I am interning at Logan Elementary School and tutoring first-grade Chinese kids who are English language learners. Therefore, I'm proficient in Chinese and Chinese-English translation and I have had experiences with tutoring children. As a master student majoring in education, my knowledge about teaching and learning is another plus for teaching this subject.
