About Hui Sian

Coming from Singapore, I am bilingual in English and Chinese. I graduated from JCU with a double major in English and East Asian Studies. I worked at JCU's Writing Center and was a Teaching Assistant for a couple of Chinese language classes. In spring 2012, I was awarded the Francis Smith Senior Essay Award from the English department for my senior honors project, as well as a certificate for Outstanding Achievement in Intermediate Japanese.

I have completed translation projects between English and Chinese in both academic and professional settings. In 2011, I scored 162/170 on the revised GRE verbal reasoning portion, placing me in the 90th percentile. I currently work as a Technical Writer for a software company.

I am good at explaining difficult concepts and will work at the student's pace and needs. Ultimately, it is important to me that students maximize their potential, gain an appreciation for what they are learning, and are able to apply that knowledge both in class and beyond.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.

Great tutor, very patient and thorough.

I wanted a tutor to help my son with his verbal communications skills for Chinese. She came in and started talking with him and was able to access his skill level, asked to see the materials that he had worked with during his summer course and what they had covered during the school year. Then she understood the full range of his exposures as well as his own skills and began helping him focus on
