Shanghai International Studies University (English Linguistics)
Baluch College of CUNY (MBA)
I am a native Chinese speaker. I speak Mandarin and Shanghai Dialect. I majored in English Linguistics in college and taught English in Fudan University in Shanghai, China. I came to USA 20 years ago. I received an MBA in Finance, and worked many years in the fields of finance and business administration in NYC and MD. I left the workforce for several years to become a full time mom for my son. I have teaching experience and am fluent in both Chinese and English. That will make me a great tutor to teach English speaking students Chinese.
I have been teaching my son advanced English grammar and math at home. At age of 8, his reading and math levels are currently at 7th grade level. He has skipped a grade last year and is in the gifted program in the 4th grade now. It is a very self-satisfactory experience to see my son advance way above his peers and to be so proud of him. My experience being a full-time mom makes me realize that I really enjoy teaching young kids and seeing them advance above their peers or catch up with their peers if they are currently behind.
As for teenagers and adults, I'd like to use the book "Chinese for Beginners: Mastering Conversational Chinese" by Yi Ren. You can get the book on Amazon. As for younger kids, I can start with "Tuttle More Chinese for Kids Flash Cards Simplified Character Editio" (Tuttle Flash Cards). I can also use the book you recommend, or make up some learning material by myself based on what you are interested in.
2, English Grammar and Math:
I have several good sources of learning material that I've used to teach my son. But you are welcome to recommend any books that you want me to teach you.
I am a great teacher and a loving mom, I am looking forward to teaching you and seeing you advance.
Thank you. I am a native Chinese speaker. I speak Mandarin and Shanghai Dialect. I majored in English Linguistics in college and taught English in Fudan University in Shanghai, China.
Victoria is a very patient and experienced tutor, and my son loves the time with her. What impressed me most is that she was fully prepared for each lesson, preparing words and reading materials carefully. Meanwhile her rich experience on how to guide own son to make great progress really helps me a lot. She's the best tutor my son's ever met!
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.
