About Liping

I am an eligible tutor who excels at Chinese, TOEFL, IELTS, and Anatomy. I have a Bachelor's degree in English from Nankai University (ranked among the top 20 best universities in China). My major was concentrated on translation and interpretation, which means I was formally trained both in English and Chinese.

After graduation, I was honorably hired by the best English Training Institute in China - New Oriental, where I taught a wide variety of English classes - summer camps, TOEFL, IELTS, speaking, writing, listening, reading, and spelling.

I have accumulated valuable teaching experience in New Oriental. Whenever I started a new class, I would spend a large amount of time to get to know the field, then I would ask what's the student's purpose of taking this class, then I would design a curriculum focusing on meeting the student's need. That teaching approach proved to be working, student often improve tremendously when the curriculum is designed accordingly to their needs.

After teaching in New Oriental, I took a job offer at Skecthers, Shenzhen, China, as an translator and interpreter. Working in Skecthers gave me an opportunity to work with native English speakers--I learned many things that books never taught me, but students often wanted to learn. That taste of American culture in Sketchers turned out to be quite valuable.

After working for Skechers for six-months, I took an job offer in the Seattle, U.S.A as an Au Pair--this time it was not only a taste of American culture, but my entire life was in the States. The Au pair experience allowed me time to both excel in English language and study in local college, during that time I took TOEFL and IELTS, and scored very high. In college, I started studying nursing, and became an expert in Anatomy--all of my human biology classes were scored 4.0. Because of my outstanding academic achievement, I even achieved the merit scholarship in the local college. Now after two more years of teaching and studying, I have become a great teacher who harbors rich knowledge, and cares about students' needs.

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.


As an nursing student, anatomy is the crucial subject that I have to conquer, and I noticed that many of my cohorts struggle over this very challenging subject, which got me think if I can come up with some great method to help people out. In the past two years I have done many research and designed short classes to teach people anatomy and got great feedback from people.


I am a Native Mandarin speaker with a Bachelor's degree from a top 10 university in China. I worked as a translator for many years in China, which paved a strong foundation for my written and verbal Mandarin level. I also speak fluently in English with barely any accent, which allows me to communicate with students freely.


I have been formally educated English grammar for 10 years, and spent 4 years specially focusing the learning of advanced grammar in terms of teaching. Upon graduation I worked as an English instructor in a prestigious English teaching institute, where I have accumulated plenty of experience, which enable to analyze a student's need, so as to design a method that can improve a student's grammar skill within a short period of time. Thus I think I am very eligible and qualified to be a grammar tutor.


I took IELTS about 4 years ago, and scored 7. After the test I started instructing both adults and kids to get very high score in IELTS. After 2 years of teaching, I managed to summarize a curriculum to help student reach high score within three months. So I think I am very qualified as an IELTS tutor.


I graduated from a top ten University in China with a Bachelor's degree in English. After graduation, I started working as an English teacher for the best-known English-teaching Institution (New Oriental), where TOEFL test preparation was the most popular class. Students often had troubling scoring high on the listening, speaking, and writing part. Many teachers and I worked together to improve the curriculum to help conquer students' weaknesses, and the results proved that our teaching technique was very efficient and effective.
