Award-Winning Mandarin Chinese Tutors in Enterprise, NV
Hugo I am a determined, responsible tutor that will help students succeed academically. As a student myself until not too long ago, I understand the importance of getting clear instructions and having supportive instructors.... I put myself in the student's shoes. I often ask myself, if I'm the student, what will be the most confusing part?... I ask the student what is bothering him and what he knows about the subject.... I teach the student the strategy of learning. It often involves identifying the problem first and figuring out what to look for.

I have also tutored students from pre-k through 9th grade...

Ariel The world is a book, and those who don't travel only read one page.... Each student is different, therefore, my teaching philosophy is to find out his/her strength and weakness, then come up with a personalized way of teaching.... By giving them assignments they are interested in and letting them know I am available to help them but won't do their work for them.... By encouraging them often. Learning a language can be difficult, especially if there is very limited opportunity to practice. I would encourage my students when they have done something right and let them know they are making good progress.

Gabriel ...more I realize I have so much left to learn and experience. My language skills allow me to travel to far off lands and immerse myself and interact with non-English speakers.

The next most widely-spoken language is Spanish, with around 400 million speakers across 31 countries! The third most-widely spoken language is English,...

Monica ...have tutored classmates throughout the years. I enjoy helping people learn, because I think it is how we connect and evolve as people. My belief is that all students have different capacities of learning as well as different approaches to achieve comprehension of study material. As a tutor, I find that I try to find and optimize a student's preferred approach to learning, as it is usually the one that helps a student learn the...

Seth ...arrived to teach in the 1990s at St. Paul’s School, a New England boarding school. As a non-native speaker of Chinese, I sat in Mr. Chen’s class behind a desk and studied Chinese. At that time, I was confused and considered dropping the course. But Mr. Chen took me aside and said through hard work and discipline, I could learn the language. This talk inspired me to continue studying. In college, Chinese became more challenging....
