Chinese

My formal study of Mandarin Chinese began in the fall of 2008 at the United States Air Force Academy. I earned A's in both the Fall 2008 and Spring 2009 semesters, as well as a 3 week cultural exploration trip to Chengdu, Xian, and Beijing, China during March of 2009 because of my outstanding academic performance.

I lived in Taizhong, Taiwan and Gaoxiong, Taiwan from November 2009 to August 2011. For two years, I spoke conversational Mandarin on a day to day basis with native speakers and spent 2 hours each day engaged in personal study to enhanced my reading, writing, as well as vocabulary skills. I also frequently wrote letters in traditional Chinese characters to friends in the country.

Upon my return to the United States in the Fall of 2011, I changed universities and started instruction at the University of California at San Diego in Mandarin Classes intended for native speakers. During the Fall 2011, Winter 2012 and Spring 2012 quarters, I earned As in my classes. From September 2011 to June 2012, I worked at a Chinese school run by natives of Shandong, China, where I was frequently used as a translator and occasionally taught Chinese to elementary school kids.

I am an active contributor to a online Chinese learning entrepreneurship and studied abroad in Taipei, Taiwan as an exchange student at National Taiwanese University during the Fall semester of 2012.

Approved Subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.
