Ying is very professional and patient with her students. She puts a lot of effort in preparing her lessons and lessons for different students are all tailored. Her teaching is more aimed at improving the students’ general knowledge and practical aspects of the language, rather than spoon-feeding vocabulary or grammars to them.
I enjoy having Ying as our tutor because she has both understanding of children’s capacity of learning as well as basic building blocks of language. She is open to suggestions and that allows some parental feedback. She always has a lesson plan which we appreciate and simple tests to encourage memory recall, not to mention her professionalism (being on time and lesson planning) is to be commended. Both our children are thriving under her tutorship. Thanks Ying.
