Hi there! This is Jiawan, and I'm here to help you achieve your goal.

A little about me. I was born and raised in Beijing, both my parents are professors. I went to Japan for high school, after that, England. I spent almost five years there, got my Bachelor's and Master's degree. After severn years of living oversea, I went back home in 2010 and worked in a film/animation company for several years. In 2014, I came to the States, finished another Master program at University of Miami. After graduated from UM, I moved to Michigan to live with my boyfriend. Last summer, we just got married. Right now, I’m working as s freelancer for a LA based indie film company. In my spare time, I also write my own stories and scripts.

A little about my Chinese lesson. I started to teach Chinese (both simplified and traditional) as a part-time job since 2007, so I'm pretty confident on it. Student of all ages and levels are welcomed. One thing I would like to point out is unless you have required textbook, I tend not to use any existing learning materials as they always turn out rather boring and disappointing and so out of date. The first session will just be we get to know each other and discuss your goal (and it will be free), then I will design each session and make materials by myself.

A little about my Math lesson. I don't believe that Asian people are better at Math, but I do agree that we have some unique ways to master basic Math, which may make Math easier for grade school student.

A little about my writing lesson. As an international student, I graduated from my bachelor's program with a GPA 3.5, my first master's program with a GPA 3.8, and my second master's program with a GPA 4.0. Academic writing can be tricky, especially for those international students who do not have any experience before. I will show you the rules of academic writing, and you will find out that you don't need a perfect English to get an A for your essay.

A little about my college admissions lesson. To apply for a program is to make yourself different from other candidates and suitable for the program. I did my undergraduate and postgraduate application all by myself, and got accepted by my first choice school. With a little bit luck, let's knock your dream school's door open together.

A little about my IELTS prep class. IELTS is a language level test for non-native English speakers, so to get a higher score, a good foundation is necessary. Also, you need test taking skills and proper trainings to master it. That is why I'm here to help.

Thanks for reading this. If there's anything I could help, please don't hesitate to contact me. Have a nice day!
