About Jiawan

Greetings! If you are reading this, thank you for being interested about me. I was born and raised in China, then went to England for four years, got my Bachelor's and Master's Degree there. After graduation, I went back to China, worked in a university and an animation studio for four years, then came to America, got another Master's Degree from the University of Miami. So as you can see, I love travel around, meeting people, and experience the difference between cultures.

I have taught some of my friends Chinese, but I am by no means a expert of teaching. I do not believe in teaching method, simply because everyone is different, so there would be a universal way of teaching. To me, teaching is a process of getting to know my students, discovering their specialties, then make specific plan for each one of them. Also, I consider teaching and communicating with students as a way to improve myself. In China, we believe that if there are more than three people stay together, then we can always learn something from one or all of them. So I am always expecting to meet new people to share my language, my culture, and my stories.

Native Chinese (Mandarin) speaker, also can speak English and a little bit Japanese.

Strong academic and work experience, especially in entertainment industry.

Started to play piano since 5 years old.

Please do not hesitate to contact me.

Thank you for spending your precious time to read this and have a nice day!

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 was born and raised in China, Chinese (Mandarin) is my mother tongue. I do not have any experience of being a professional Chinese tutor, but I taught some of my friends Chinese before. I designed learning schedules for them, gave them homework, made quizzes. They were very systematic teaching experiences, although I have never made any money from it.

Marketing

I got one Bachelor's Degree in Advertising and Marketing Communication, one Master's Degree in Advertising Design Management, and one Master's Degree in Communication Studies. My academic background allows me can teach basic marketing strategies and theories. Also, I worked as brand manager, promotion manager, and project manager in entertainment industry for four years. I planned and executed strategic marketing plans, managed company brands, promoted animation projects, and did some distribution. My practical experiences allow me to understanding what the theories are, and how to use them in real life.

Piano

I started to play piano since five years old, passed the 8th level of National Piano PETS (10th is the highest). I stopped attending the piano test after that because time conflict, I did not have enough time to practice everyday, which was necessary to pass the test. Yet I did not stop playing piano until I came to America, which was about 2 years ago. I had some awards and stage performance experiences, but I am by no means an musician. I define myself as an experienced piano player.

Project Management

I got one Bachelor's Degree in Advertising and Marketing Communication, one Master's Degree in Advertising Design Management, and one Master's Degree in Communication Studies. My academic background allows me can teach basic marketing strategies and theories. Also, I worked as brand manager, promotion manager, and project manager in entertainment industry for four years. I planned and executed strategic marketing plans, managed company brands, promoted animation projects, and did some distribution.
