I have over 15 years of experience with Mandarin Chinese, and I have worked in various capacities as a language tutor or teacher over the years. I currently teach 5th grade Chinese at an independent school in Bethesda in addition to operating a small linguistic services company.
My love of Chinese extends far beyond the language itself, and I believe that to truly become proficient in the Chinese language one must also study Chinese culture. Therefore I teach my students many of the subtle cultural nuances that separate a native speaker from someone who has simply memorized vocabulary lists and set phrases. I look forward to helping each of my students achieve fluency in Mandarin and a deep appreciation for Chinese culture.
I also work as an elementary school assistant special education teacher, and I am experienced in teaching general subject matter at the elementary school level.
