About Yi


Bio

I’m offering my services as a Chinese language tutor. I am a native Chinese (Mandarin) speaker with an extensive background in academics and in particular the social sciences (anthropology and history). I’ve done a lot of work and research in both China and the United States, but I love learning about languages and meeting new people as a result.

I’m offering my services as a Chinese language tutor. I am a native Chinese (Mandarin) speaker with an extensive background in academics and in particular the social sciences (anthropology and history). I’ve done a lot of work and research in both China and the United States, but I love learning about languages and meeting new people as a result.

At Georgetown University, I mainly served as a graduate recitation teaching assistant for Third Level Chinese language study for a class of 32 undergraduate students for almost one year.

I believe that language and culture are two sides of the same coin, so in our lessons I’ll provide enough historical and cultural background information for you as we go through our class together. I believe the key to mastering a foreign language is immersing oneself in the cultural contexts that the language thrives in. This is something that is either often ignored or downplayed in many classes.

Writing Chinese characters can also be difficult training for beginning learners, but since I love Chinese calligraphy and have had the pleasure of practicing it since I was a child, I’m looking forward to the chance to offer my own unique understanding and philosophy about the structure of Chinese characters to help you get the hang of this skill.  

What really makes my service stands out is my true passion for the job, bridging the communication gap between the East and the West. Learning English has opened a new world for me and I’m sure it’ll do the same for you. I’ll be there to help you along the way during our tutoring sessions. We’ll explore more about China together and get to know Chinese people. I always have faith that effective communication will make the world a better place.

Swimming

I studied swimming with a tutor who was a Turkmenistan swimming athlete joining the Olympics Games twice. I have been swimming for almost five years and I mastered three swimming styles: breaststroke, freestyle, and backstroke. I guided several my friends before, and I'd like to share my swimming skills with people who interested.

Kind, friendly and good with kids

She was able to help my daughter with her mandarin speaking skills. My daughter liked the lesson and would take another lesson with Yi in the future. She would like to improve and speak mandarin fluently.
