I have been studying Mandarin Chinese since early on in high school. My first experience in China was studying abroad my sophomore year in college fall 2008. I absolutely loved it! Since then, I have become very interested in becoming fluent in Mandarin Chinese. It really has become my passion and I want to share it with you! While I don't have a formal educational background, I have tutored English while in China and participated in various "language partnerships." I have many resources from my own Chinese-learning in the form of text books, movies, music, etc. I will make a great tutor because I am knowledgeable, passionate, patient, fun, and easy-going.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Chinese

I have studied Mandarin Chinese (written, oral, listening, reading) fairly extensively for almost 8 years. It was my major in university. I also studied abroad 3 times in China--one of which being an intensive Chinese program at Beijing Language & Culture University. My husband is from China and we do freelance translation work, so I feel that my Chinese has reached a relatively high level. China has been my passion for many years so I hope to be able to help others in any way I can relating to China or Mandarin language learning.
