" Rather than just telling them the answers, I prefer to guide the student to come up with the best changes to improve their writing. No one can learn how to write when someone just tells you what to say. But I like to help students learn how to best express themselves, so they can continue to write well, long after the tutor leaves. My tutoring strengths are primarily in Writing and English, but I also have a lot of experience with Literature, Psychology, and Test Prep."

"Besides the obvious obstacles of differentiating tones and writing characters, the language is infused with many cultural nuances that add to its beauty as well as its complexity. As a native speaker of English myself I know just how difficult learning Mandarin can be.
