Experienced Tutor for Piano, Voice, Reading, Math, ESL, Phonics

I love teaching young children and elementary students; I specialize in ESL, phonics, reading, English grammar, writing, math, and elementary subjects. I hold a bachelor's degree and had taught my own five children math, reading, and writing before they entered public school. They all did exceptionally well. Later, I homeschooled them for several years and now the eldest three have either finished university education or are currently pursuing university studies. Teaching is one of the thin... [more]

Reading

I tutored an ESL student on math and reading who succeeded in testing out of the ESL program and into regular stream. He was brought to me by his parents because his teacher had concerns about his academic progress in math and reading. In the end, he was admitted to a science and technology middle school for gifted students. He now is doing very well at school and has received various awards.

I graduated from the University of Toronto, Canada, and hold a bachelor's degree in music education (voice major). I completed music theory prior to entering the university music program for it was one of the prerequisites. I also furthered studies in music harmony and analysis.

Elementary Math

I had tutored an ESL student on math who later succeeded in testing out of the ESL program and into regular stream. He was brought to me by his parents because his teacher had concern about his academic progress on math. In the end, he was admitted to a science and technology middle school for gifted students. He now is doing very well at school and has received various awards.


Elementary (K-6th)

I hold a Bachelor degree and taught my own five children math, reading, and writing before they entered public school. They all did exceptionally well. Later, I home-schooled them for several years and taught my children U.S. history, world history, general science, social studies, math, reading, and writing. Now the eldest three have either finished university education or are currently pursuing university studies. I tutored an ESL student first on English and math when he was five years old because he was falling behind in class. I subsequently tutored him on all subject areas. I tutored him on math, reading, writing, social studies, and science until he finished elementary school. With the tutoring, he continued to improve his grades and even was placed on principal's honor roll. He not only succeeded in testing out of the ESL program, but also was admitted to a science and technology school for gifted students. He now is doing very well at school and has received various awards.


Piano

I graduated from the University of Toronto, Canada, and hold a Bachelor's degree in music education (voice major). Piano is my secondary instrument. I have since taught piano to students in private and group settings. In teaching, I generally tend not to use only method books exclusively. I extract what is useful and appropriate for the student and move on to music materials from other albums or individual sheet music. I adapt the pace and specific approach of the lessons based on the maturity and interests of the student. Musicianship and music theory are always an integrated part of elements in teaching regardless of the instrument.


Voice (Music)

I graduated from the University of Toronto, Canada, and hold a bachelor's degree in music education (voice major). Piano is my secondary instrument. I have taught voice to students from young to adult, in both private and group settings. I have taught both serious voice students as well as students who take lessons for fun. I adapt the pace and specific approach of the lessons based on the maturity and interests of the student. Musicianship and music theory are always an integrated part of elements in teaching regardless of the instrument.


Chinese

I was born and raised in Hong Kong. I am a native speaker of the Chinese language. My proficiency in both spoken and written Chinese is high. I am fluent in Cantonese and Mandarin. I successfully completed elementary education and secondary education till grade 10 in Hong Kong. During the years of my schooling, I received academic instruction in both Chinese and English, Chinese being the first language and English the secondary, which gives me equally substantial training on both Chinese and English. When I took the open public examination for secondary school placement, I scored the highest possible score in Chinese, followed by English, and math. I later moved to Canada and continued with my post-secondary education. I taught Chinese to Canadian born Chinese while I was in Canada. I taught my own children Chinese (spoken and written) when they were young. I also have tutored them Chinese when they took Mandarin Chinese at College level.
