Thank you for your interest and please allow me to give a brief self-introduction.
This is Vivian, a native Chinese (Mandarin) speaker. I got my B.A. in English, from Soochow University and recently finished a master’s from USC. Fresh out of school, I currently intern in a lifestyle magazine.
I have done Chinese tutoring with both kids and adults ever since I was a freshman and teaching brings me so much fun. What else did I do a part from that? Volunteering (so proud to have volunteered in the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games) and tour guiding in the world famous Suzhou Gardens (with national English tour guide certificate). Located on the lower reaches of the Yangtze River, the city is so rich and well preserved in its traditional Chinese culture - Kun opera (a branch of traditional Chinese opera), Suzhou gardens (there is a duplication of part of a Fisherman’s garden in The Metropolitan Museum of Art, NY) and many others. I just couldn't help to embrace them and present the essence during my touring according to my clients’ preference. I would like to bring a twist of culture content to my teaching yet it’s all up to my students.
Every course will be specifically designed depending on each student’s level.
