About Bill L.

Chicago, IL
View Full Profile

Grew up in America (born in Taiwan) for over 13 years and native speaker of both English and Mandardin Chinese.

About Bill
I have always been a self-studier in my entire life. Being able to learn with just books and your brain is a crucial skill to have! However, I know not everyone (and sometimes even myself) have the discipline and motivation to keep going during hard times. This is where a tutor would come in handy.

I enjoy tutoring (doing it ever since I was in high school for my classmates) and helping other overcome problems that I have encountered myself because it enhances my own understanding and makes me happy that my self-studying is helping others. Sometimes, my students even bring up alternative ways of thinking that I have never thought of before!

About Edward L.

San Jose, CA

View Full Profile

I grew up in America speaking Chinese with my parents and is how I'm fluent in conversation in Mandarin. My writing and reading is not nearly as good as a native, which is why I don't choose to teach advanced. I've perfected the art of self-ambition in language learning, as documented in a book that I have published. Within two years of Pepperdine University pursuing an Engineering Degree I have became proficient in German, French, and Russian while only taking one elementary French class. Not only do I teach the skills for language mastery, I also teach conversational skills to get you ahead of others.

About Edward
I'm going to be a 3rd year student at Pepperdine University pursuing an Engineering degree. I'm a huge language learner, being able to converse in about 8 languages but I only wish to teach 3 of them for now. As someone who prefers self studying to learning from classrooms, I've perfected the method for students to improve drastically from their previous lesson by self preparing. I prefer to teach online especially for further students but those that are close I wouldn't mind commuting. My hours are pretty flexible during the weekdays.

I grew up in a tutoring business family and Mandarin Chinese is my mother tongue. Before I immigrated to the United States, I was a TV journalist in Taiwan. I also have my Master's from Georgetown University. I mastered Mandarin Chinese in both personal and professional dialects. I have been tutoring Math, English and Mandarin Chinese on and off for over 26 years. I adjust my teaching methods based on each student's personality to make the learning experience fun and easy. I'm also very fluent in English so I can explain the meaning of Mandarin characters better for students to understand easily. I believe language is a practical tool and learning Mandarin Chinese should be a joyful experience. I teach all levels from beginners to advancer, just tell me how you want to learn, and I will accommodate to your needs to help you learn Mandarin Chinese.

About Charlotte
Hello, nice to meet you here! Charlotte is my English name that a priest pricked up for me when I traveled to Italy in the 90's, it means little and womanly which is opposites from my Chinese name(I'll tell you how to write it after you select me as your tutor). My Chinese name is very manly and positive just like my personality-- positive and a Tom boy.

I was born and grew up in a tutoring business family in Taiwan ( the free, democratic, USA-like small island next to China), Mandarin Chinese is my mother tongue. I was a TV journalist in Taiwan before I came to the USA to pursue my Master degree at Georgetown University in 2002. After the graduation I started working in American global corporations and lived between Taiwan and USA on and off due to works until I met my American husband in 2012 and I am an American citizen now .

Cu
rrently I'm an entrepreneur after my global marketing professional careers in American globalized corporations. I guess I was born with tutoring gene so I have passions about education and feel like sharing my knowledge about Mandarin Chinese with people who are interested in learning it will be fun and rewarding. It might also help people from two different cultures understand each other better.

In my leaseiure time, I love gardening, birds watching, hiking, jogging, photographing and traveling. I never smoke, never do drugs and don't really drink. I am into healthy and organic life style. I especially love children and love being with them. I also like to make new friends and having interesting conversations about everything and the world.

About Selena W.

Cupertino, CA
View Full Profile

I am an ABC, so Chinese is not my main language. I have a different perspective than other teachers who speak Chinese as their first-language. I am a more hands-on teacher, because I believe it is more beneficial to learn through immersion and cultural awareness rather than straight memorization.

About Selena
Hey future students!

I’m currently a sophomore at Santa Clara University. My major is Accounting Information Systems, so I guess that means I enjoy math!
My favorite sport to play is basketball, which I’ve been playing since 2nd grade. Fun fact: I tore my ACL on April Fools :)

I’m excited to assist you in whatever you want to improve in or learn more about!
