Hi! I’m Yiqing. I graduated from Johns Hopkins with a master’s degree (MSPH) and a GPA of 3.94. I’m a tutor/teacher based in Manhattan with bilingual (English/Mandarin) teaching, test prep and K-12 tutoring experience since 2012. My first teaching job was at Shanghai Disney English, where I worked as an assistant trainer of ESL for kids from 2 to 10 years old. Then I started teaching ESL and TOEFL prep at Shanghai New Oriental School, tutoring ESL, test prep, and Chinese, and helped hundreds of students achieve success. I am professional, fun, inspiring, and great with children.
As an ESL speaker who had professional English theatrical productions and publications, I believe that interests and confidence are the best teachers, and I incorporate this mantra into my teaching. I tailor my tutoring approach based on students’ needs and goals. I ask students questions and encourage them to think and come up with their own solutions. I specialize in using imagination and kinesthetics to help students acquire new sounds and using paraphrasing and juxtaposition for reading and writing.
I am also an award-winning public speaker, host, and performer, and I help students who are learning languages or public speaking find their truth and confidence in the speeches. I very much look forward to giving you a hand on your way to success!
My TOEFL scores: 117 (out of 120) –reading 30, writing 30, speaking 29, listening 28.
My GRE scores: Quantitative 170, Verbal 157, Writing 4.5
