About Dandan

Nihao, my name is Dandan (Emily) from Beijing, China. I was an International Student, and I graduated last December from the University of Northwestern-St. Paul with an Intercultural Studies Bachelor’s Degree. I am a full time Chinese teacher at a language school in St. Paul now. After I graduated from high school, I initially wanted to major in teaching Chinese as a foreign language; however, after I came to America and changed my mind to major in Intercultural Studies. It provided me the expertise to teach Chinese well. I do have teaching and tutoring experience:

I was the Chinese subject tutor at the University of Northwestern- St. Paul for four years. I was a leader of my University’ Chinese club for four years. In 2014, I taught English in Albania, Thailand, and Japan during our Intercultural Studies overseas Internship (ICS Trip). In 2012 and 2013, I taught English at an English summer camp in my home province, Shanxi. I was a Chinese tutor for one of the Korean students at my high school in Beijing.
I love tutoring Chinese to built the cultural bridge between Chinese and my students here.

My qualifications for being a Chinese Tutor are:
•Building good relationships/ friendships with the students.
•Expanding experience of teaching Chinese by applying the specific cultural background.
•Developing different teaching methods for all level students.
•Customizing useful and successful learning methods according to students’ strengths and weaknesses.

Don't worry or feel bad about your pronunciation or grammar. Language is a TOOL to be able to commutate with one another. As long as you are able to explain what are you trying to say, no matter if they are only single words or phrases, you can grow. It takes a lot of practice, but I strive to make practice fun and I aim to help you gain more self-confidence. Myself struggled with English in the beginning, but I got out of my comfort zone and immersed myself to learning. Through my efforts, I went through college and even maintained good grades. Therefore, do not be afraid to make mistakes. Asking questions and making some bumps ultimately will lead you to success. I look forward to working with you. See you soon!

Due to my current employment status, I am available for online tutoring/Skype as well. Also, if you live in or near the Twin Cities, MN, I will be available to meet in person at your home or a public place.

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

Some of my qualifications include being a native Mandarin, Chinese speaker -- an expert at both the language and culture. Along with having traveled and tutoring English overseas, I have also been a paid Chinese language tutor for students throughout my University career. I have taken courses such as Teaching Methods that provided training in basic curriculum building as well as executing these curriculums. As an intercultural studies scholar, building cross-cultural relationships is my passion and what I strive to do. As a tutor, I aim to combine both culture and language to customize learning methods that will meet the strengths and weaknesses of students on all levels.
