About Kevin

I recently returned to the U.S. from Taiwan, where I worked at Time International Language Center for around 5 years. I loved my job, and had a lot of fun with my students. I came back to be close to family and have a place for my dogs, but I still want to teach. I speak Chinese fluently (passed the Test of Chinese Proficiency - Advanced level) and recently passed an interpreter and translation test.

If English is what you're looking for, I've taught conversation and test preparation to all ages. I was also dispatched to many companies, and even worked with the Taiwanese government on a project. I have a portfolio of my own teaching materials, if you don't like to use a book.

I am very flexible and I like to make learning fun, so drop me a line!

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 passed the Test of Proficiency - HuaYu for Mandarin Chinese in speaking, listening, and reading at the advanced level. The TOP is a Mandarin Chinese proficiency test offered in Taiwan that is analogous to the HSK in China.

I recently passed an oral interview and written translation test for Chinese to English and English to Chinese translation.

In addition, I lived in Taiwan for 7 years, have been studying Chinese for 10 years, and part of my college major requirements was to study a foreign language, in my case Chinese.

On top of this, I have 5+ years classroom experience in teaching language in Taipei, Taiwan.

English

I was an English teacher in Taiwan for 5 years. I taught test-prep and conversation to individual students and classes up to and exceeding 30 people. I have a TESL certificate as well.

IELTS

I was an IELTS teacher for 4+ years in Taiwan. I've taken the IELTS myself to see what it's like. I've taught 4 different IELTS class levels utilizing 9 different preparation book and CD sets.

TOEFL

I taught TOEFL test-prep in Taiwan for 4 years. I took the TOEFL test myself to see what it's like, and I've essentially memorized the listening scripts from 2 major TOEFL prep books including Baron's. I tried to make TOEFL fun with frequent speaking-drill breaks and entertaining and thought-provoking speaking prompts.
