If you are not just looking for another Chinese speaker or someone that is good at Economics or Finance but instead a NATIVE SPEAKER IN BOTH MANDARIN AND ENGLISH with YEARS OF TUTORING EXPERIENCE and can teach in a FUN way that’s EASY FOR YOU TO UNDERSTAND then you have found the RIGHT PERSON!

Tutoring Experience:

Feb 2015 ~ Present
Private tutoring in University Economics & Finance courses

Mar 2014 ~ November 2015

Tutoring Approach:

INTEREST IS THE KEY! I am an outgoing, communicative, and patient person. I always make sure that my lessons are enjoyable and fruitful for students. I am not only good at explaining difficult concepts by BREAKING THEM DOWN into UNDERSTANDABLE PARTS and PROVIDING PRACTICE EXAMPLES but also always make sure to teach students the STRATEGIES TO SOLVE SIMILAR PROBLEMS in the future themselves. For my Mandarin lessons, I can offer both guidance on any coursework or systematically teach you useful Chinese phrases based on real life scenarios, so you can start confidently using the language real soon.

Having had studying and living experiences over four different continents I absolutely love meeting new people from different walk of life and have a banter about each other’s different life experiences.
