About Hui

I am currently a PhD student in Slavic Languages and Literatures in Northwestern University. My specialty is Russian literature. However, I am interested in interdisciplinary research and combining the study of different subjects in my projects. I taught first-year college Russian to undergraduate students in Northwestern University. I also worked as a teaching assistant in many literature and linguistic courses for undergraduates. In my undergraduate years in China, I worked as a tutor of Chinese as a foreign language. Born and grown up in Shanghai, I am familiar with both the traditional and modern cultures of China. I love working with students and especially helping them achieve their goals in academics through active communication, interaction and mutual-learning.

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 was born and grew up in Shanghai, and I am familiar with both the traditional and modern cultures of China. I received my undergraduate education in Peking University, majoring in Russian Language and Literature with a focus on linguistics. I became familiar with the methodology of language analysis and description in my study of linguistics. What's more, being a language learner myself has helped me understand how to teach a foreign language on a learner-oriented basis. During my study in Peking University I have also taught foreign students elementary Chinese with a focus on communication and practice in real-life situations. After entering Northwestern University as a graduate student, I have taken the course of foreign language teaching methodology, in which I further developed my skills and ideas on second language teaching. With my passion and experience in language learning and teaching, I think now I am prepared for being a tutor of Chinese as a foreign language.
