About Quentin

I have over 15 years of experience with Mandarin Chinese, and I have worked in various capacities as a language tutor or teacher over the years. I currently teach 5th grade Chinese at an independent school in Bethesda in addition to operating a small linguistic services company.

My love of Chinese extends far beyond the language itself, and I believe that to truly become proficient in the Chinese language one must also study Chinese culture. Therefore I teach my students many of the subtle cultural nuances that separate a native speaker from someone who has simply memorized vocabulary lists and set phrases. I look forward to helping each of my students achieve fluency in Mandarin and a deep appreciation for Chinese culture.

I also work as an elementary school assistant special education teacher, and I am experienced in teaching general subject matter at the elementary school level.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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 have studied Chinese for 17 years and hold a degree in Chinese language and literature and economics. I run a linguistic services company and language school, and I work with students of all levels. I have worked with elementary school students with no prior Chinese language experience and executives at an advanced language level.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have seven years of experience tutoring elementary aged students in Chinese. During that time I also taught English to elementary school students abroad. I am very comfortable working with students in that age range. I have also spent the last two years working as a Chinese teacher for elementary school students at a private boys' school in the DC area and as an assistant special education teacher at an elementary school in Annapolis.

Reading

I hold degrees in Economics and Chinese, and I currently teach Chinese and work as an assistant special education teacher in Annapolis. I am familiar with the current common core education standards and proficient in instructing the core subjects of reading, math and spelling at an elementary school level.
