Diana Lingyu

Education Background
I am a graduate of Beijing Foreign Studies University - China's most rigorous and acclaimed foreign language teaching university. I have dual B.A degrees: one in English Language and English Literature, the other in Chinese Law. Upon graduating from undergraduate school, I decided to combine my passion for English language and my devotion to justice: so I applied for law schools in the U.S and received an offer from Case Western Reserve University School of Law. Studying for a Juris Doctor (J.D) degree in my second language was challenging, but I did it. Most importantly, I enjoyed every minute of it!

Tutoring Experience
I gained most of my tutoring experience while at college. During my freshman year, I tutored Chinese bankers and CEOs English, preparing them for their pursuit of MBA degrees at Wharton. While a junior, I worked with a language institute to start up a Chinese law learning program for American lawyers doing business in Beijing.

Teaching Philosophy
As a native Chinese speaker who has been learning English for 14 years, I have experienced and conquered difficulties inherent in mastering a new language. I aim to translate my experience into my role as a tutor. I believe that constant communication with students is necessary to assess progress. And it is important to customize teaching style and materials according to each student's needs.

Interests and Hobbies
I love Yoga. I love food. I love listening to and telling stories. And I love life.
