About Zhao Yang
Hi! 你好!Привет!

My name is Zhao Y! I specialize in tutoring Mandarin Chinese, Russian and ESL. I have four years of experience with one-on-one teaching as well as teaching in a classroom setting. I have taught Mandarin Chinese and English to students from 1st to 11th grade at a Chinese Language Specialty School in Moscow and to second year university students.

At my lessons, I have creativity and do my best to build an exciting and interesting learning experience. In practice I utilize interactive teaching methods and activities to motivate students to learn and communicate in a foreign language. I often use visual aids, such as software tools or videos and make students feel that learning a foreign language is fun and interesting.

I believe culture is a crucial concept in language teaching, in a certain sense language learning
is culture learning. So my lessons always include a basic cultural section where I introduce culture and customs to the students.

I am happy that my passion for learning foreign languages became my profession. Teaching foreign languages for me is a Never-Ending Professional Development Journey. It’s a profession that allows me to be creative, work with a variety of different people, travel all over the world and inspire students not only academically but personally as well.

About Shane
I am currently a Junior at Harvard University majoring in East Asian Studies with a specific focus on Japan and Japanese media. On campus I am also Co-President of the Harvard College Japan Initiative, a student-run organization that hosts an annual Japanese career fair. I also work at the Yenching Library on campus in the Japanese Collection. In my spare time I like to consume Japanese media (games, novels, movies) that I buy on my trips there, act, and practice martial arts.

I have been tutoring in a variety of subjects for over 10 years and am extremely passionate about teaching and education. Sometimes students need assistance tailored to their specific needs and situations that regular classes cannot provide, and so one of my greatest joys tutoring is being able to give one-on-one, specialized help and the little extra push that c
an help them shine. My mother is a former teacher and so from a very young age I've always been drawn to education.

I have taken the equivalent of five years of intensive Japanese classes at Harvard University during my three years here, earning top scores in each class, for which I was awarded Harvard's Tazuko Ajiro-Monane Prize by the Japanese Language Department. The classes I've taken include both traditional language classes as well as the advanced classes which focus on academic writing, Business Japanese, and academic debate on issues in the social sciences. In addition, I have taken intensive Japanese classes in Japan, both at the Ishikawa Prefecture International Exchange Center and the Inter-University Center for Japanese Studies, the latter of which offers the most advanced intensive Japanese courses available and is primarily aimed at graduate and post-graduate students.

Given my academic experience and awards, extensive experience living and working in Japan and Japanese environments, and my familiarity with the language, I can be of great assistance for Japanese tutoring of all varieties--whether it be help with test prep, high school or university classes, or business, academic, or casual Japanese. I own most commercially available and reputable Japanese textbooks and learning resources (including those written in Japanese), so I'd love to incorporate them into our lessons as well.

I'm very available and approachable, so if you have any questions please do reach out to me at any time! I would love to talk to you more and get to know you on an individual basis.

About Laura
I agree with the your philosophy that “All children can learn when taught correctly, regardless of past history.” I feel connecting to the students as individuals and on a personal level is what engages them and bring them to level of wanting to learn. I believe in “teaching across the curriculum,” as no subject is isolated from any other. Teaching Latin has enabled me to teach ancient history, literature, poetry, English grammar as well as the language. I have also taught humanities and mythology, which helps with the whole global perspective of history. My lesson plans are developed using constructivist techniques and are authentic with the intention of helping students become life-long learners.

Laura Eckard is a very charismatic and responsive teacher. She works well with her students and she assures that they have all opportunities to succeed. She is very good at explaining and making sure her students understand. I was very impressed with her as a teacher and how well her and her students interacted. For me personally, she helped me to better understand the subject as a whole, and to fully grasp all concepts. She works well with her students and in return, they gain the knowledge she gives them.

About Artem
My name is Artem K. I was born and raised in Russia. I am now living in the States and doing what I love to do - teaching. According to Confucius, “Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.” Now as I have been teaching for almost 10 years, I am certain that I most certainly will not have to work a single day in my life. I will simply be enjoying the process of educating my students and sharing my culture with them.
