TOEFL Tutor For Almost Perfect TOEFL Score
I studied TOEFL thoroughly when I was preparing for my own TOEFL in 1997 for graduate school admission. I scored 623 (total was 660 then) with percentile rank of 93% in October 1997. I began to live in America and have used English professionally and personally everyday ever since then. As a result, my comprehensive English ability and perspective on studying and teaching TOEFL have crystallized. As a tutor, I help students improve comprehensive English language ability and test taking skills. I teach students how to build near native American's listening, speaking, reading, and writing abilities, if not better, how to perform their best at the test, and explain practice or actual past tests question by question to ensure a great result. After taking my classes and preparing TOEFL according to my instructions, students should score 29-30 on listening, 27-29 on speaking, writing, and reading, respectively. Don't wait. The sooner you hire me, the earlier you reach your goal.

Native Chinese With Experience As Mandarin Chinese Tutor
As a native Chinese, my experiences of learning English as second language; tutoring college students and adults in both Mandarin and English, and observing and teaching my America-born child both Mandarin and English give me unique perspective and understanding of the difficulties/pitfalls for Americans to learn Chinese and vice versa. The key to sustaining learning is to develop self-learning and self-teaching abilities and effective study methods as early as possible. It's my goal to form and turn the key to sustaining learning to my students so they make great progress outside my teaching hours instead of depending indefinitely on a tutor/teacher for progress.

I tutored Chinese for American undergraduate students when I was a PhD candidate. In recent years, I also teach my America-born kid Chinese. In fact I'm already teaching free because I taught her how to learn Chinese herself. She clearly enjoys the ability to master a language h

Chinese

I designed and tutored beginner Chinese pinyin, intermediate Chinese character formation, vocabulary building, and grammar, and advanced Chinese topics for culture immersion, traveling to China, doing business, studying or living in China. My expertise as a tutor is to pass self learning ability of the language to my students. So they become independent life-long learners and users of Mandarin Chinese.
