    Comprehensive Intermediate English Private Tutoring

    I specialize in tutoring English for varying levels of students from middle school to university, as well as TOEFL and SAT exams. I have been very well trained in the English language, and I hold a perfect GPA for the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program and very high scores of TOEFL and SAT tests. For now I am advancing my studies at Columbia University in New York. My goal is to keep students informed of the English language to their level and skills necessary for verbal and written communication. I make sure my students are encouraged to overcome challenges they will encounter and are inspired to fall in love with learning the language. I assign appropriate amount of homework after class and will make sure the student is continuously making progress. I am also fluent in Chinese and Spanish--I will make sure communication is very smooth during my teaching!

    Availability: always available on webcam; face-to-face teaching available from June to late August. Feel free to reach out to me!

    About Me

    I treat tutoring as an opportunity to offer interested students the best of my knowledge in fields of my profession. I spend hours to make preparations before each lesson so that my students will get the most out of a class that will keep them motivated for the next one. I also actively seek evaluations and suggestions from the student side so that they could get a best personalized experience. I always make an effort to create a challenging yet relaxed class setting to inspire my students!

    I specialize in tutoring Spanish for varying levels of students from beginner level to intermediate. My goal is to keep students informed of the Spanish language to their level and skills necessary for effective reading and listening, as well as verbal and written communication. I make sure my students are encouraged to overcome challenges they will encounter and are inspired to fall in love with learning the language. I assign appropriate amount of homework after class and will make sure the student is continuously making progress. I worked with local people in Costa Rica, a Spanish-speaking country for two years. Right now I am advancing my Spanish language study in Columbia University, New York. I am trilingual at Chinese, English and Spanish--communication will be made easy! Availability: always available through webcam; face-to-face teaching available from June to late August.
    I have been well trained in classical guitar performance under the master class instruction of Arthur Kampela, a renowned classical guitarist and composer from Brazil. I am also well studied in Western music history and music theory. I have studied rumba-flamenca in South America, and have performed fusion jazz music as well as unconventional guitar pieces. My teaching combines theoretical analysis and technique improvements. For beginners, I aim to teach and reinforce correct left-hand position and movement along the frets, and effective right-hand picking. For intermediate players I aim to adjust technique details to improve the student's control over emotions of the music while playing, and share my approach to blending Latin and flamenco stylistic features with classical guitar. I base my lessons on properly challenging classical masterpieces, and I ensure the student's progress by assigning after-class practices. I also make sure my lessons go smoothly in an encouraging and relaxed atmosphere! Availability: always available through webcam; face-to-face tutoring available from June to late August.
    I am a native-level English speaker currently advancing my study at Columbia University. I have had substantial experience abroad in North and South America. I hold an International Baccalaureate diploma with perfect GPA and highly qualified TOEFL and SAT test scores, and I am very well trained in English Language and Literature. I am professional at learning and teaching spoken English and language culture from my experience of intense studying and socializing in the US. My teaching aims to train my students to achieve effective sentence organization and verbal communication, so that they can improve the vocabulary and accent and be confident to communicate with native speakers or foreign companions. My teaching combines theory analysis, cultural interpretation and mock conversation practices, and I ensure the student's progress by assigning appropriate amount of homework. Studying with me is both challenging and relaxing and I make sure my class is encouraging and inspirational! Availability: available on webcam throughout the year. Face-to-face tutoring from June to late August.
