About Ying

Yale grad with over ten years of teaching experience, providing exceptional individualized tutoring in Mandarin Chinese, computer programming for kids, preK to high school curricula, SAT prep, LSAT prep, and ESL.

About me:
As an older sister, I caught the teaching bug very early in life and strive to create an encouraging and positive learning environment for all my students. Moreover, I'll always nudge them to go beyond their comfort zones, to enjoy the process of figuring things out by themselves.

Experience:
In addition to private tutoring, I've worked in public school classrooms as a teacher's helper, in summer camps as a camp counselor, in universities as a teaching assistant (Calculus, English Literature) and as a writing clinic tutor, and in Beijing teaching ESL to tech start-up employees. I've also taught test prep at Kaplan, and currently volunteer in mentoring projects at the high school and university level.

Elementary to High School Education:
I have a special knack for understanding and getting along with young students. I give my students the special attention, encouragement, and structure they need to excel in school and become ardent, life-long learners. My intuitive approach has a proven track record: enabling one child to progress from fractions to high school algebra within one year; developing another child's ability to write Chinese characters neatly and accurately; and helping a high school student apply for and get accepted into her dream Ivy League college.

Feel free to ask me any questions, and I look forward to hearing from you.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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 in Beijing, China and Mandarin Chinese was my first language. I have tutored students in beginner to intermediate Chinese, helping them with conversational Chinese, as well as the pin-yin system. My methodology for pronunciation is to use the four tones of the pin-yin system, with a special understanding of tonal difficulties for English-speaking students. I have also translated a novel from Chinese to English, in addition to shorter works (film, tv scripts).

Computer Programming

I introduce children to the fundamentals of computer programming.

Background
I studied computer programming for 4 years, learning multiple languages, including C++. I also create websites and am adept with web design.

Approach
The easiest way to learn programming is by doing, so I always teach by way of assigning tasks for the student to complete. My goals are to make each child feel comfortable with the activity of programming, to instill in them an ability to problem-solve buggy code and an appreciation for innovation by using others' work as a springboard for their own projects.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have tutored students individually, as well as been a teacher's assistant at an elementary school during school hours. I have tutored school-age children in all subjects, including math, English, science, geography, and history. As a homework and study coach, I help students understand what they are being taught at school, to meet and exceed their teachers' expectations.

Study Skills

I have extensive experience helping preK to 8th grade students study. I worked one-on-one with my students after school to help them prepare for tests, as well as complete assignments. For larger projects, I like to break down the to-do list into smaller, manageable, actions. I specialize in dealing with procrastination, anxiety, and students who feel overwhelmed.
