Hi. I'm Thomas. I just finished up my undergraduate degree at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah. I majored in Chinese and my minor was in Business Management. I love to learn new things, especially languages. I can definitely relate with people trying to learn Chinese and really any language for that matter. I've tried a lot of different learning methods, some of which were effective and some that weren't.
Chinese isn't the first language that I learned, but it is definitely the language I'm most familiar with (besides English of course). I've lived in China on two separate occasions, one of which was on a study abroad at a Chinese university and the other was working for a Chinese company, so I've definitely been around a lot of Chinese and have become comfortable with it, especially spoken Chinese. I also have quite a bit of background translating documents from Chinese to English. I recently finished a project for a company out of Beijing.
I know that learning another language, especially one like Chinese, can be an overwhelming task, but because I've been a student, I'm definitely empathetic and patient with those with a desire and willingness to learn. If you're willing to put in the effort and stay committed I can help you on your way to Chinese proficiency. As your tutor, I will focus on helping you learn practical, spoken Chinese that will get you using it right away. There's no better feeling than learning to express yourself in another language. I look forward to working with you!
I have a BA in Chinese language and culture. I have lived over in China on two separate occasions. I have worked for a Chinese company, which required me to communicate with my co-workers, boss and colleagues in Chinese on a daily basis. I have also done freelance translation work for a company based out of Beijing, China. I am constantly working to improve my Chinese and use it in practical settings.
