Education

Colgate University - BA, International Relations

Experience

I have been a Chinese language tutor and also have experience in tutoring Mandarin at college level. I was raised in Asia and speak Mandarin so this also helps me when teaching it to others. I graduated magna cum laude, from Colgate University, and obtained my degree in International Relations with a minor in Chinese language and culture. At one point I worked in China in a dual-language position. My experience includes students of all ages, and after having worked with a variety of different students I believe that each student learns differently. Therefore, I tailor the method of study to each individual when I am one-on-one with them. I like to find out more about my pupils, what they are interested in, what their strengths are, and this I feel really shapes my teaching in learning Chinese. I also believe in fun learning, but like to also challenge my students as well.  When I'm not tutoring I like to spend time outdoors and play tennis, hike, and run. I love to read, and really like the Science Fiction genre. I also like to study computer programming and am always learning new concepts that I am able to apply when tutoring students.
