About Jessica

My love of teaching and tutoring comes from a lifelong passion for learning. I graduated valedictorian of my high school class and went on to receive a scholarship to study Chinese at Michigan State University. During my undergraduate years I began tutoring other students in writing and ESL. Upon my graduation from the Honors College in 2011, I received my certification in ESL and taught English in China both to adults and children for two years. For the past two years, I have been working in the business sector for the best two years as a professional translator and copywriter.

I specialize in Mandarin Chinese, ESL, literature (including English classes and SAT/ACT prep) and writing. The most important thing to me as a tutor is that the student grasps the concept and feels confident moving forward in their studies. That being said, I always strive to challenge and engage students. I assign homework after each lesson and provide periodic lesson reports so as to let the student know how they are faring and discuss with them how they might improve. I spend a lot of time preparing lessons and thus ask that students provide at least 2 hours notice if they need to cancel. However, I do offer makeup classes.

From helping students revise and rewrite their papers to helping to rewrite speeches for marketing professionals and draft company reports, I have a wealth of experience in helping writers to improve upon their work.

When teaching Mandarin, as a native speaker of English, I can explain pronunciation and concepts in ways that are easier for English speakers to comprehend and remember. I teach reading, writing, and speaking depending on the student's needs and desires.

I look forward to hearing from you and wish you success in all your endeavors!

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 have a bachelor's degree from Michigan State University in Chinese and have lived in Mainland China for close to five years. I am fluent in written and oral Mandarin Chinese and work as a professional translator and interpreter. I have over two years of professional experience in this capacity and five years of experience interpreting during the course of other jobs. I have experience teaching native English speakers Chinese while in Beijing, as well as the unique experience of myself having gone from an absolute beginner to near-native fluency as an adult.
