About Lougui

I'm a recent Umass graduate who's passion derives from learning languages. When I decided to select Chinese as my major, it was due in part to wanting to discover something unique, while at the same time, serving the international community. I've been to many various provinces in China including Sichuan, Beijing, Shanghai, and Guangzhou, and every visit was a complete adventure that nurtured my cultural awareness and language skills. One of my most recent experiences in China that still holds a special place in my heart was when I was hired as an English-language TA. Being able to organize extracurricular activities that promoted language growth and understanding student difficulties through a mutual language were a few of my responsibilities. I can honestly state that I find a joy in helping children learn and become elated when I see their development.

Aside from being fluent in oral and written Chinese, I also specialize in formal English writing. I took Advanced Placement English Literature in high school, and had a 3.0 average for the consecutive English classes I took per semester. Whether it be writing an essay for the SAT, analyzing abstract literature, or organizing a persuasive essay for college entry, I can help any student effectively understand written English.

AP English Literature and Composition
SAT Writing score: 720


I have flexible hours and am usually free after 3pm on weekdays. I can tutor any age, but my usual clients are around 13-16. The best way to reach me is through my mobile phone or through email, and I get back relatively quick.

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 a B.A. in Chinese from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst and have critical knowledge of Mandarin both culturally and linguistically. Whether it's news articles, social media, or Confucian/Taoist literature, I know how to accurately translate the Chinese script into appropriate English diction.

My conversational Mandarin Chinese is advanced as well with me being able to adapt to various regional differences in tones and accents. So although I know the standard Peking/Beijing dialect, I can also understand Sichuan and Southwestern pronunciation.

Writing

I have experience with AP English Lit & Composition; Junior Year Writing (college-level); and I have earned a 680 Reading & 720 writing SAT score.
