Tom I have a passion for learning and for helping others to learn! Started teaching undergrad courses in 1991...began tutoring in 1999 and received a tutoring award from the University of Pennsylvania. I like to make hard subjects clear and easy to handle!... Usually it's part "get to know you." But then I ask them what is bothering them the most, and we start there. If we have to back up to review things, no problem; I am there to help. I try to remind students I am not their teacher or parent, and I am not judging them at all.

Transitioning to college, the tutoring continued. Students taking...

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.
