About Luke

Hello! I'm Luke, and I am a student at Gettysburg College. I am currently a sophomore, Chinese Studies major. While I am still seeking a degree, my experiences in High School and College have brought me a great understanding of the Chinese language, and Chinese culture. I began studying Chinese in 7th grade, and continued that knowledge through high school through Chinese Level 6 in the 12th grade. I have continued my passion for Chinese in college, and placed into an upper level language course. I have thrived in this classroom and have learned a great deal, not only in Chinese, but also in teaching skills for languages. I have learned topics in Chinese across many different disciplines, and believe my breadth of knowledge has continued to grow. I have many experiences of cultural breadth as well. My county, Baltimore County, is affiliated with a school in Xian, China, and we hold an exchange program every year. While I have not had the experience of going, I hosted a student one year, and I was a guide for 3 students over my high school journey. I also served as a tour guide for principals from Shanghai schools, and helped them understand our school building, and educational system. This has furthered my learning, as I had practice speaking Chinese, and learning even more as well.
Even though I do not hold a degree, I was often seen as someone who tutored classmates in high school, and even in college. My biggest approach is to engage thinking, and to not, colloquially, "spoon-feed" information. In high school math, another one of my subjects I could tutor, I helped my friends by explaining the process, and having them complete the problem, not doing the problem for them. I gladly walk through skills, but I never give away the answer. I believe that this helps people retain information much clearer than simply having problems and answers. I also believe that pace is critical. I have always helped people at their own pace, so they are not bored, and so they do not fall behind. Each individual learns differently, and I believe that I can address a vast array of learning personalities. I am very flexible, especially in terms of what is best for each student.
Even though I am still very young, and without a degree at this point, I believe my experiences qualify me to teach early Chinese, as well as calculus and below mathematics. I look forward to potentially 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.

Chinese

I have studied Chinese for 7 years, and have amassed a wide array of knowledge of the Chinese language. I have worked with exchange students, Chinese principals from Shanghai, and international students at Gettysburg College, my school. I have tutored many of my friends through class in Chinese, and have helped them to succeed, through explanation and examples. I also put heavy emphasis on speaking the language, as it is most critical to fluency. I love to spread the Chinese language to others, and feel my knowledge would help those wanting to learn the language.
