I like to give a lot of context and examples during a tutor session. For instance, if I'm going to explain a new word in Mandarin, I would mix the Chinese word into a story in English; I believe this will help the student to better comprehend the new vocabulary in actual context. I will mainly base my class on student's individual inquiries and prepare relative course material for the session.
I'm an international student from mainland China and I'm currently studying in U of T Engineering. I'm a native speaker who speaks perfect standard Mandarin while being quite fluent in English as well. I have already studied in Canada for 3+ years and I also have 2+ years of tutoring experience in languages (English/Mandarin) and math/sciences. I've competed in professional level of Chinese speech competition and I've also studied in local Chinese schools in Tianjin for more than 9 years.

I've been Lindy's tutee since middle school and she is always keen on tutoring her peers on languages and mathematics. She is a true perfectionist, and every tutor session we had together is truly helpful. She mainly helps with my languages in four aspects: listening, reading, writing, and speaking. She is very responsible in terms of preparing study or Q&A session and is never late for any of them. My average for IB Mandarin has increased for a solid 15% during the past year so I definitely recommend her as a perfect Chinese peer tutor.
Lindy is my friend in highschool, and we studied together multiple times. As I’m lacking in some subjects, she has been helping me by being my tutor in school. I would even dare to say that she is better than my teachers on explaining.
In her teaching, she is very patient to her students ^^ she would re-explain everything for the students until the students fully understand. Altho personally, her explanation is already very clear for me that I could easily learn it. She is also nice and I can question anything without feeling intimidated. I really recommend her because of my experience studying with her, it really proves that she can be a great teacher.
