I have a B.A from Swarthmore College (1992), and an M.A. and M.Phil from Yale University (2004), in E. Asian Languages and Literatures. I am fluent in Mandarin Chinese, and proficient in Spanish. I have been teaching Chinese language and history/culture courses for the past decade, at the college and high school levels. Currently, I'm based in Atlanta, GA, and teaching at a college in Atlanta. I am a patient, enthusiastic teacher, and enjoy teaching students of all levels and ages.
In addition to tutoring Chinese, I am also interested in tutoring students in English, Spanish, ESL, European History, and World History. Having gone through many years of graduate school, I can help you to read critically and to write incisively and effectively. I can also assist with basic studying skills, such as learning how to summarize the main points of an article, as well as how to write a clearly organized essay.
I have a student-centered approach, in which I take the strengths and weaknesses of each individual into account, to help create an interesting, lively lesson plan and study environment geared to the needs of each student.
