Award-Winning Mandarin Chinese Tutors in Hollywood Hills, CA
Janice ...I would like to help change student perspectives of their own mental capacity to succeed by showing them *simple*, but extremely effective, studying methods to begin mastery of any subject area. I tutor SAT/GRE test prep, as well as writing in general, biology, and French. However, my favorite subject to teach is ecology because I am passionate about environmental/ecosystem stability and would ultimately love to work in biodiversity conservation. Appropriately, I enjoy outdoor activities such...

Melody ...believe all students do better when they have fun (and maybe even become passionate about) learning the subjects they struggle with, and it is absolutely imperative in my teaching method that everyone's enjoying themselves! Learning should be fun, since it's something we all continue to do for the rest of our lives, even after we graduate. If this sounds like a fit, I'm always happy to help, and look forward to meeting you!... Everyone should be having fun while they learn! It helps retention, increases motivation, and optimizes results. Students should expect to work hard, but receive lots of encouragement and an honest assessment of their strengths and opportunities.

I can also teach Mandarin Chinese and Cantonese too. If you are also interested in learning Chinese,...

Zhan Learning a language should be fun and enjoyable. This should not only include learning how to speak, read, and write, but also ways of thinking, communicating and expressing oneself. Let the doors be open!... It will be based on the student's needs; each individual is unique and learns differently, and my teaching style changes from student to student. To listen more, to feel more and to respond to student's strength and weakness are my big focus; to find the "teacher" within themselves is my primary goal. I don't teach the subject; I teach the way to learn and to think.
