About Li Yu

I am a Chinese teacher from Taiwan and a native Chinese speaker. I majored in English/Chinese translation in college and minored in Japanese. I have a 5 year of experience tutoring Chinese, English and Japanese. I was also a teaching assistant/teacher in several language institutes from Taiwan. I have always been dedicated to developing a passion of language in young people and adult.

I have a real passion for travel and exploring other cultures! I lived in Japan for six months. And I appreciate their culture a lot. I love tutoring Chinese because I have a passion for this beautiful language, and I want to share this appreciation with more people.

When I'm not tutoring or trying to teach myself something new, I love language learning, cooking, running and wandering around the beautiful Boston area. I graduated from Boston University where I earned an M.A.


Beside being a native speaker, I am a trained Chinese teacher in one of the biggest Chinese teaching program from Taiwan.

My teaching style: I'm flexible and can adjust to students' needs. If you'd like grammar explanations, I'd be happy to do so. If you're more interested in conversation, that's great! I always make sure you'll have a lot of time to speak, and I'll bring pictures, websites, and magazines to help us discuss interesting topics. I'd also love to hear about your culture!

I look forward to meeting you!

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 a native Chinese speaker and a trained teacher from one of the biggest Chinese teaching institute in Taiwan. I complete the whole course without being absent in any single hour. Furthermore, in the final evaluation test/ mock teaching session, I had the highest score of the class. I have five years tutoring experience in English/Japanese/Chinese and I am good to design my own teaching material and adopt different teaching method according to the need students look for.

Experienced and well prepared tutor

I had a great time with Li Yu! I wasn't sure of what level my Chinese was at, but she came in prepared with a variety of teaching materials and quickly adapted to my needs. Her teaching methods are great, I got a lot out of our lesson and had a lot of fun too! I had a bit of background knowledge in the language, but I can tell she would be great with beginners as well. I'm definitely going to lear
