Chinese Experience: I studied Chinese at Pomona College for four years as an undergraduate. During that time, I participated in Middlebury College's study abroad program in Hangzhou and traveled to Beijing to interview subjects for my senior thesis. After graduating, I returned to China to take part in the State Department's Critical Language Scholarship, then took more Chinese classes and traveled around China for ten months. In the fall of 2012, I went to Taiwan to take classes at the Taipei National University of the Arts under the auspices of the Rotary Ambassadorial Scholarship. I scored "High-Advanced" on a Chinese test given by the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages.

Teaching experience and goals: While I was in Hangzhou, I spent several months giving private tutoring. I taught Chinese to foreign students and English to locals. This year, I led a tour in China and taught Chinese to the ten American students on the program. I hope to give my students a strong foundation in grammar, pronunciation, and vocabulary, and instill them with the confidence needed to use Chinese in any situation necessary.

Piano

I have studied piano for ten years. While in college, I studied with Gayle Blankenburg, a former student of Menahem Pressler and a well-respected pedagogue. I am not a concert pianist, but I can teach beginner and intermediate students. I have performance experience and have played numerous pieces in the advanced/concert repertoire.
