Dear Prospective Client,

I am a lover of languages and fluent in 3, English, Chinese, & Hindi. Although my native language is English, I was born and raised in Singapore, where I was constantly immersed in a multicultural environment. I have studied Chinese academically at the University of California, Berkeley (UC Berkeley), graduating with a Bachelor's in East Asian Studies with a China focus. In addition, I have spent 6 months in Shanghai studying at the prestigious Fudan University (a university ranked top 3 in China). This combination of education and experience has given me the ability to understand not only the language but also the heritage of the great Chinese culture.

I have extensive experience teaching foreign languages to students of all ages. In one of my experiences, I introduced a Chinese language curriculum to a private elementary school where I taught 40+ students ranging from ages 3 to 18. I also have tutored and advised natively Chinese and Japanese children and adults on the English language on a more personal basis.

My strengths and passion are working 1-on-1 with students and seeing them progress. I understand the struggle and frustration involved but it's my goal to ensure students learn the right way, have fun, and enjoy their new ability to express themselves in a different language. This is accomplished through engaging & exciting instruction rather than boring, tedious methods of repetition.

I highly encourage you to reach out so I can best assess your needs and tailor a lesson plan directly to you. Think of this as the first step in this lifelong process of learning!

Chinese

Hello, I am a recent graduate from UC Berkeley who majored in Asian Studies. I am able to fully converse, read and write in Mandarin. I also studied abroad in Shanghai last Fall for 6 months as an exchange student at Fudan University.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have served as an Instructor at an elementary school teaching 1st-8th grades. I have experience planning, creating, & executing a curriculum to many students. I have also worked directly with children providing tutoring services. I use a formative assessment style in my teaching which I find is particularly helpful for students to learn. Let me know if you need more information from me.
