Award-Winning Mandarin Chinese Tutors in Spring Valley, 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.

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.
