My love for teaching comes from the incredible and inspirational teachers that I had growing up. I have loved teaching all age groups, from children ages 3-18. While I undoubtedly have a love for the classroom, some of the most rewarding teaching moments have come from tutoring.

I specialize in tutoring Mandarin Chinese. Whether we are simply going over homework, or I am introducing new content to the student, I hold my students to a high standard but also aim to have fun and enjoyable sessions. I believe in creative learning methods balanced with conventional strategies for learning. Sessions are often student-centered, in the sense that the student shapes his or her learning based on their interests.

I hold my students as well as myself to a high standard. I provide feedback for my students, and welcome feedback from students and parents as well. I am always interested in how I can better myself in the area of tutoring, so I encourage open and honest feedback.

I understand that life often gets in the way of commitments. Because of this, I am flexible when it comes to rescheduling sessions and cancelations. I only ask that parents/students do their best to give me as much warning as possible before rescheduling or canceling a session. I also offer make-up sessions.

I have reliable transportation and travel to students' homes for tutoring sessions.

I look forward to hearing from you and hope to work with you soon!

I have been a MS/HS Chinese teacher for a few years now. I have worked in private schools as well as immersion camps, so I have an extensive background on learning and teaching styles. I am currently a tutor through an agency, but am wishing to branch out. My rapport with kids is fantastic, as I am able to relate to them on both an academic and social level.

Terrific start! — We are really happy with the first session and looking forward to working together. Full disclosure: my 6 year old was not going into this with a good attitude. He's really been resistant to the repetitive homework he gets from school. So much so, we were really afraid that learning Mandarin was becoming a completely joyless experience for him, for us. We let him know someone named Connor was goin ...
