About Reuben

If you are looking for an experienced and hard working ESL, Mandarin Chinese, literary studies, or writing tutor in the Portland area or online, then please contact me and let's work together to maximize your learning potential.

I have a BA in English from Virginia Commonwealth University and a TEFL certificate from TEFL Worldwide Prague. I have taught English to students of all ages and levels in both Prague and Taiwan. In Taiwan, I also studied Mandarin and eventually passed level 5 of Taiwan's Chinese Test of Proficiency (TOP) in reading (Traditional Characters) and listening.

I have extensive ESL teaching experience with all ages, both online and in person. I am a patient, understanding teacher and I work hard to help my students get the results they need. I am passionate about learning and I love to share my enthusiasm for my subjects as well as for the learning process itself. And due to my wide range of teaching experiences, I am a very adaptable teacher and can work with many types of learning styles and personalities.

Let me know what you need to work on and I will develop a systematic approach that is tailor-made to your needs. Looking 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 lived in Taiwan for six years and intensively studied Mandarin Chinese for the entire time. In January of 2015 I passed the TOP level 5 test in reading and listening. The TOP test is Taiwan's most highly regarded Mandarin test for foreigners, and Level 5 indicates a native level fluency in the areas tested. My proficiency in Mandarin combined with my extensive EFL teaching experience qualifies me to tutor beginning or intermediate level Mandarin students.
