About Earnestine

Coming from a family of teachers, I've always had an appreciation for learning and teaching. I had my first teaching position as a piano teacher in middle school, and then expanded my subjects to Mandarin Chinese, reading, writing, art history, and SATs.

When I got to college, I tutored fellow students in college writing courses for several years, and helped kick-start online tutoring and ESL tutoring at the school's writing centers, working especially closely with international students from China.

Mandarin Chinese was my native language, and I attended school in China for two years. Additionally, I have lived in China cumulatively for about nine years. I also took and excelled in several upper-level Chinese literature courses (in Chinese) in college. I received my B.A. in linguistics and tutored language-learning students for many years.

My fluency in both English and Mandarin Chinese (having attended school in China and cumulatively lived there for nine years) has lent itself well to communicating and working with students looking to improve either their English or Chinese.

I strongly believe in the value of good communication between the tutor and student, so I always plan and adjust my lessons according to the student's needs. I keep each student engaged and challenged with appropriate tasks. I have worked for several years with students of all levels. I come from a Linguistics background, so I am very familiar with the processes of language learning in both theory and application. My skills in tutoring and my linguistic knowledge allow me to help students in a compassionate and effective way.

I have worked with many students over the years, and it has been a joy to learn alongside them. I look forward to hearing from and working with 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.
