About Guanrong

I grew up in Yunnan, China, graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Japanese Studies from Beifang University of Ethnic Minorities and a Master Degree in International Area Studies from Nanzan University (NU) in Nagoya, Japan. In China, I became a native Mandarin language speaker and obtained the Putonghua Certification. As an undergraduate at my Chinese university, I interacted with over 50 Chinese ethnic minorities while studying Japanese language, so, I have the cultural competency to relate to people from diverse cultural heritages. In graduate school at NU in Japan, I became fluent in Japanese studying Japanese Literature and eventually passing Level 1 of the Japanese Language Placement Test. At NU, I enjoyed helping American and European students integrate into Japanese society while living in an international dormitory.

I started tutoring when I attended my undergraduate university in China. I tutored Chinese students to learn English and also helped Chinese students to learn Japanese. As a graduate student in China, I tutored Japanese students in Mandarin for one year.

After graduate school, I worked for a Japanese firm for almost two years, selling books for college professors and offering Mandarin classes to our customers. So, I am well versed in Japanese business practices and customs.

Beyond my language and cultural background, I take a flexible approach. Whether it's students, teammates, or clients, my approach is to adjust the way I work to fit their styles and needs. I like to communicate with people, so I would love to talk to you. I hope we can study languages together and share each other's cultures.

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'm a native Mandarin speaker. I have passed Standard Mandarin speaking test and get standard Mandarin certification, which means I have a good pronunciation. I have tutored Mandarin as my apart time job in Japan for a year. I would like to help you with the Pinyin, character and the speaking Mandarin and culture explanation. I hope we can have a good time together for studying Mandarin.

Japanese

I have studied Japanese as my major in university since 2007. I also past the highest Japanese test N1, then I went to Japan for graduate school in International Area's studies. In the past 8 years I have been studied Japanese culture, history and policy through the graduate program. After I graduated, I worked for a Japanese local company for two years. I learnt more business Japanese from the work. When I was in China, I tutored Chinese middle school student to study Japanese, and I tutored Chinese who living in Japan but can't speak Japanese as well. I would like to share my experience in studying Japanese and my life experience in Japan with you.
