About Yaling

I grew up in China and my native languages are Mandarin and Toishanese. I also acquired Cantonese from watching Hong Kong produced TV shows and movies. After graduating from South China Normal University I came to the US and earned a degree in Sociology at Seattle Pacific University. I have been an English to Chinese interpreter for a non-profit since the early 2000s. I am also a substitute and teacher's aid at Eastside Christian School when I'm not helping my husband with his business. I enjoy using my language skills and helping students. The writing system I'm most familiar with is Simplified Chinese, which is used in Mainland China. I can also write Traditional Chinese (used in Hong Kong and Taiwan).

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. Thank 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'm a native Mandarin Chinese speaker and I completed college level Chinese classes and graduated at the South China Normal University in Guangzhou, China (A school that trains students to become teachers). I was an English-Chinese interpreter at a preschool from 2004 to 2005.

Good/patient teacher

Yaling is very soft spoken and very patient with my child. This is our 2nd lesson, therefore, I am still testing the water. She is trying hard to make the lesson fun. I would like to see her provide a little more materials or information to where to get more practice and have flash cards for kids. I believe she can improve on those area and I will give her a 5 stars. Overall she is great.
