About Vanessa

Hello there,

Thanks for checking my profile. I came to the U.S 2 years ago, and before that, I was living in China for 20 years and in Europe for 5 years. I have more than 5 years tutoring experience in the following subjects: Chinese, IELTS and TOEFL. When I was in China, I worked part time at the Student Service Center of a university in Beijing as a Chinese tutor. During that time, I helped more than 50 students pass their Chinese language level test in order to start their normal major class at the university. My expertise is all about designing my class based on a student's level and interests; not only helping my students to improve their Chinese language skills but also sharing different Chinese cultures with my students.

I also have about 2 years tutoring experience in IELTS and TOEFL. I worked with an organization in the UK which helped non-English speaking international students prepare for IELTS/TOEFL testing. During that time, my responsibilities were to prepare course material, assign homework, score and correct student's homework, hold one on one sessions for students who needed extra help to catch up, communicate via email with students outside of class whenever questions arose, reviewed recent tests with students, and created mock tests for students. After class, my students and their parents would review my work and would give feedback to the organization about my performance; I always received very good reviews and after just one year I was allowed to train new tutors.

I design my classes based on a particular student’s needs, goals, and ability level. I have experience with students of all ages, from school children to businessmen, and learning styles and can adapt to any difficult learning situation. I have been trained how to understand and work with the various learning styles and know how to adapt my lesson plans to fit the needs of the student. I am a very determined tutor and will make sure that all of my students succeed.

If you don't have a preferred textbook already, we will use my textbook and work off of that one. As for my preferred schedule, I am pretty open after 6pm during the week, and any time during the weekend. I am also very flexible based on the scheduling needs of the student.

I hope that I can use my expertise to assist you reach your goal quickly!

Thanks,
Vanessa

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.
