About Sissi

I am an experienced Chinese tutor, native speaker of Mandarin Chinese. I graduated with a master’s degree in education from the University of Pennsylvania, where I studied, taught, became a language expert, and refined my skills as an educator.

I also took the Teaching Chinese to Speakers of Other Languages course in 2011, and obtained an International Registered Professional Mandarin Chinese teaching certificate.

When teaching and tutoring, I make a conscious effort to incorporate your interests into my individualized lesson plans to create a meaningful and enjoyable learning environment for you. I have experienced the process of learning a second language personally, and I have also investigated language acquisition theories comprehensively at college and graduate school. Hence, I understand the trials and tribulations of learning a second language, and I am always patient and attentive when addressing your’ needs.

I have taught Chinese and English in both China and the United States for over six years, including teaching Chinese classes at a bilingual school in PA and Graduate Student Center of the University of Pennsylvania. All my students showed significant improvement in the grades and report cards. More importantly, my students enjoy the process of learning Chinese with me and become more motivated.

Learning a language is not only about learning the language itself, but also its culture. So I create individualized Chinese lessons for you and integrate Chinese culture into my language teaching.

I try to be flexible with time. While I do have a 24-hour cancellation policy, and I offer make up classes.

If you are interested in learning Chinese or discovering Chinese culture, please contact me. I am looking forward to hearing from 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 taught Chinese in United States for over four years. I graduated with a master’s degree in Second Language Education from the University of Pennsylvania. I also took the Teaching Chinese to Speakers of Other Languages course from Huazhong Normal University in 2011, and obtained an International Registered Professional Mandarin Chinese teaching certificate. When teaching elementary students Chinese at a bilingual school in Philadelphia, I created many activities that proved to be very appealing to my students. I believe language and culture have a synergetic relationship, so I integrate Chinese culture into language teaching, which motivates students and results in tangible progress towards students’ goals.
