Personal Statement

As a tutor for many years, in various subjects such as Mandarin, ESL, and music, doing one-on-one tutoring, as well as after-school programs, Connor has gained a wealth of knowledge and experience when it comes to working with and coaching students.

His serious study of the Mandarin Chinese language began in High School. His High School Chinese teacher encouraged and inspired him to work hard at the language and to continue studying beyond High School into College. With all of these learning experiences, he was able to quickly strengthen his foundation and felt confident that he could take the next step and teach the language. Over the past few years, he has taught Chinese at various institutions teaching all age groups, toddler to adult. Each presented their own challenges but he ultimately discovered his ability to handle a classroom setting as well as his love for teaching. He was fortunate to be able to extend this knowledge to other subjects, teaching music and ESL privately and in the classroom.

He believes that as a teacher and tutor, his number one priority is to inspire your student, and bring positive energy to each and every session. By maintaining and spreading this energy, he has found that students can really be inspired, and want to do great work for you and for themselves.
