I am a native Chinese speaker who has been living here in the New York City for more than 2 years. During the 2 years, I managed to access to all sorts of Mandarin teaching opportunities from time to time. My first official Mandarin teaching experience was in China, serving as an intern Mandarin Chinese teacher for a group of Korean students. After that, I volunteered at a Chinese school in Rochester, New York as both teaching assistant and lead teacher, for students from kids to adults (approx ages from 4-30). After that, I became a private English tutor of a Korean (adult).
Being a tutor has given me chances getting to know students' wants and needs more specifically, which is of great great importance in the learning and teaching process, so that I get to navigate and solve the problems accurately. Besides, the one on one (or two) tutoring allows both teacher and student to see the results fast, thus, it permits both of us enough time to turn and switch to other proper strategies.
The Mandarin Chinese it has been the “ONLY” language of mine since I was a child because I do not speak any kinds of dialects. Such experience has actually helped me speaking standard and proficient Mandarin.
In my junior year in China, I acquired the Mandarin Proficiency Test Certificate (2nd grade of A level).
I came to the United States for the Master's degree in TESOL (Teaching English for Speakers of Other Languages). Two year's study has given me a lot in terms of English teaching. Especially when I myself being a non-native speaker-- it allows me to consider more from the students' perspectives, as well as imparting them the English learning experience from the stand of a second language speaker.
Students of all levels are welcome. I will be here looking forward to hearing from you all the time! I am a native Chinese speaker who has been living here in the New York City for more than 2 years.

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.
