About Lisa

I was born in U.S., but raised in China during early childhood. I studied in the southern China for 10 years to learn Chinese and its culture. I am capable of reading, speaking, listening, and writing in Simplified Chinese characters as well as reading Traditional characters. After I returned to the states, I have been actively practicing Chinese with family on a regular basis. Furthermore, I took AP Chinese course in high school and passed its placement exam with a score of 5. Later in college, I studied aboard at National Taiwan University in Taipei, Taiwan, where I continued to enhance Chinese. Currently, I am working as a communication assistant to interpret between Chinese and English at a company that deals with foreign trades.

I became interested in tutoring when I began helping underclassmen with homework in high school. Then, I signed up a summer volunteer program to tutor/teach abroad. I was assigned to teach English at a local elementary and middle school in rural area of Taiwan. Mandarin was mainly used to communicate with students. But all lessons and assignments were written in Chinese and English to make sure students could grasp the material more quickly. I also tutored students after class one-on-one to ensure their study needs were met. One-on-one sessions are one of the most effective ways to learn because students have more chances to ask questions and understand better. My approach to tutoring is get to know the students and let them speak for themselves. Then I would customize lesson plans to fit for that particular student and target their concerns.

My love of tutoring comes from my belief in learning. Being a Chinese American, I believe that learning another language is important because it opens up more opportunities to become more successful in life. Regardless what stage we are at in our journey, we would always be learning about something. Tutoring not only allows me to gain greater knowledge, at the same time, it helps others to learn or improve. Nonetheless, I will do my best and help you to achieve your goals. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions. I am open to people of all ages and levels who are interested in learning Chinese language. I look forward to hearing from you and helping you to succeed.
