About Yuehan

After I graduated from Third Military Medical University, which is one of the top medical institutes in China, I had been a physician, also a teacher for medical students. Then, I went to Yale University pursuing medical physiological research. 4 years later, I completed my postdoctoral training. I became an achievement medical physiologist (assistant professor) in US.

As a native Chinese language speaker, with a broad interesting background in Chinese culture and literature, I am enjoying to share the beauty and power of Chinese language with my children, my students and others. Both of my children received their highest score (800) in the examination of SAT Chinese. My son graduated from Tufts University in Chemical Engineering. My daughter won the second award from Connecticut State High School Chinese Poetry Recital Competition, graduated from Harvard Medical School in MD degree. Now I am teaching a class of intermediate Chinese Conversation in a local Chinese school.

I have been talking and speaking Chinese in Standard Pronunciation (Putonghua). I have deep knowledge in reading comprehension in Chinese literatures, ancient and traditional Chinese, classical poetry, Chinese history, and culture, to write articles and tutor student in different literary forms in Chinese, such as, modern poetry, prose, commentary, interview, news and office documents. Many of my Chinese articles were published on local Chinese Newspapers in US, including an exclusive interview of Mr. Lu Siqing, who is the best Chinese violinist in China, he won the first prize of the Paganini Competition in 1987. My special interview and reports introduced this talent Chinese artist to Yale Community.

My interest in Chinese was originated from my Chinese teacher when I was a middle school student. My teacher was Wang Ming Hai, a short, middle aged man who wore very thick eyeglasses. His class, it was my most favorite class to attend at that time, not only I was as his class representative, but also I did enjoy his way of teaching, which was a kind of performing art, humorous, logical, creative and comprehensive. I would be dreamed to become a Chinese teacher. I have learned a lot from him and I will never forget.

Since I was admitted into medical school and then I became a physician in nephrology, a doctor specific in kidney diseases. I was a medical doctor and teacher to train and to teach my medical students in China, as well as involved medical scientific research training to medical students and postdoctoral researchers in US.

I am hoping to share the fun in tutoring/learning Mandarin Chinese with you.
