" Through my own learning experience and my time as a teacher I have developed a great respect for the unique learning process of each individual. I've had the opportunity to explore this process through teaching reading classes (which covered everything from basic phonics to university-level study skills and speed reading) to ESL instruction (including conversation, business English and TOEFL test preparation classes), and finally to Mandarin tutoring where I have the opportunity to share my written and spoken Mandarin skills as well as the cultural understanding and experience I gained from having lived in China for over three ...

"It may sound trite, but I deeply enjoy the intellectual and interpersonal challenge of the teaching experience. While I expect hard work from a student, I am patient above all and listen before I lecture. I specialize in teaching standardized tests (ACT and SAT I and Subject Tests), math and statistics, writing, French, and economics. In my spare time, I run religiously, listen constantly to music, and read."

" I've lived in Austria and Spain for four years where I taught English in a local school and language academy. Mainly I worked with high school students and adults, but outside of schools I have worked with children of all ages. My main tutoring subjects, in addition to being my biggest interests, are German, Spanish, History, Geography, and Earth Sciences and I'm always excited to help others learn about them. I find learning to be fun and try to pass that along to the students I tutor."

"I tutor multiple levels of math, ACT and SAT prep in Math and English, and Spanish. My philosophy as a tutor is that students know more than they think they do. I like to guide my students through solving problems by using their prior knowledge and experience, and asking questions so that they can participate as much as I do. My favorite thing about tutoring is getting to know my students on an individual basis, and figuring out how they learn best."

"My passion for physics and math distinguishes me as a tutor because I explain the "why" behind the "how". My Experience: I have extensive experience with leading study groups while in school at Georgia Tech. Studying with such a diverse group of people allowed me insight into the different ways people learn and think about studying. Also, a deep understanding of physics and mathematics was fundamental to mastering the engineering subjects I studied every day. My Methods: Everyone learns in different ways."

"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. After several extensive trips to China (including 6 months as an exchange student at Xiamen University) I also know how much fun there is to be had, not to mention the plethora of opportunities that come with speaking Mandarin well. The Chinese have a saying: One more friend, one more road. So allow me to call upon my experiences in learning the language and culture to guide ...
