About Qiang

Hello! My name is Qiang. I am a native Mandarin speaker from Shanghai, China. I graduated from Heilongjiang University, Harbin, China in 2012, with a B.A. in Russian Language and Literature. During my undergrad years, I taught Mandarin courses at the Confucius Institute in Moscow State University, Russia, for one year. I went to the Graduate School at the University of Oregon, and finished my M.A. degree in Slavic Linguistics in 2014. During my graduate studies at U of Oregon, I worked as a graduate instructor and taught 6 college-level Russian courses (from Russian 101 to Russian 203).

My professional interests is teaching Chinese and Russian as a second language. My love for language leads me to pursue a degree in linguistics. I took many courses in language pedagogy and second language acquisition, and I am able to apply different language teaching methods in my teaching practice.

Seeing my students progress is my biggest achievement. I received the Mandarin Proficiency Certificate (First Grade, Level B) in 2010 and National Advanced Certificate in Russian Language in 2012. I have been tutoring and teaching Chinese and Russian for five years.

I am also fully competent in brushing up the TOEFL skills for ESL students. I passed the most recent TOEFL (Jan. 2016) with 118/120 (reading 29, listening 30, speaking 29, writing 30). I understand that in standardized tests, skills are sometimes more important than other qualities. Therefore, I emphasize on skill training for exams like TOEFL.

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 am a native speaker of Mandarin Chinese. I graduated with a B.A. in Russian Language at Heilongjiang University, Harbin, China. I taught college-level Mandarin courses in 2010-2011 at the Confucius Institute in Moscow State University, China. I received National Certificate of Mandarin in 2010 (Level One). I have been tutoring Mandarin for five years, and my students come from diverse backgrounds in the U.S., Russia and Europe. My master's degree in Linguistics helps me to apply interactive language pedagogy to practice.

Russian

My undergraduate degree was Russian Language and Literature. I later pursued an M.A. in Russian Linguistics from the University of Oregon, where I taught college-level Russian courses for 2 academic years. I have also received great course evaluations from my previous students. Therefore, I believe that I have teaching competency in Russian.

TOEFL

I am a proficient speaker of the English language. I am especially skilled at test taking skills for TOEFL. In my recent TOEFL exam (Jan. 2016), I got 118 out of 120 points (reading 29, listening 30, speaking 29, writing 30). Therefore, I believe that I am fully capable of tutoring TOEFL.
