About Tingting

I am a constructivist, student-centered educator who deeply believes learning is not a static, but a dynamic process, and that every student can learn with effective support for his/her individual needs. I am currently employed as a Chinese immersion classroom teacher by Saint Cloud Area School District. I have held an elementary teaching license (K-6) which was certified by Minnesota Department of Education. I received my Master’s degree with a major in philosophy and education at Teachers College, Columbia University. In addition, I received my Bachelor’s degree with a major in elementary education (K-6) and a minor in music at St. Mary’s University of Minnesota. As a Magna cum Laude graduate and a member at both Kappa Delta Pi and Delta Epsilon Sigma honor societies, I believe that making a difference in other’s lives of learning will be achieved when support is differentiated and efficient.

I specialize in tutoring Chinese (beginning, intermediate, and advanced language proficiency levels) because I am a native Chinese speaker. Moreover, I had teaching experience in immersion Chinese learning, navigator Chinese studies, and adult Chinese tutoring. My goal is to facilitate individual student’s achievement in his/her Zone of Proximal Development (ZPD) in a positive learning environment.

I also specialize in elementary math (target language can be either English or Chinese). My hands-on and heads-on activities make math learning interesting and meaningful in students' life experience. My purpose of teaching math is not just to focus on what students learn from the content, but to be conscious of how I encourage students to think and wonder.


I expect students to work hard with their full potential because the harder they work the more progress they will achieve. Just as important, I expect both students and I to practice together cooperation, responsibility, and time management throughout tutoring process. I try to be flexible with time and make up classes when they are noticed early. I will provide various formative, informal, and formal assessments to monitor students' progress.

I am looking forward to hearing from you and learning with you to make this productive, inspiring, and memorable tutoring experience. I hope you are as excited as I am to start this wonderful journey!
