Being a passionate tutor, I’d like to assist a student who is interested in learning Chinese not only to study the language, but to understand and enjoy the culture as well. There are some of my unique traits. First, I am a native Chinese speaking standard mandarin Chinese and being proficient in Pinyin system. Second, I received my M.A. in Chinese history in Queens College, CUNY, in 2012. I have taken 15 credits in Chinese language and 21 credits that related to Chinese culture and history. I have maintained an excellent academic standard--- my final GPA is 3.9. Third, I have been a Chinese teacher in NYC since 2008. I have the experience to teach children as well as adults, in public schools as well as in private houses. Fourth, I have systemically studied classical Chinese literature, history, and philosophy. I have given several public talks in Queens libraries, the topics including Tang Poetry, Zen Buddhism, Hongloumeng, etc. Also, I am good at writing Chinese prose; I have published some articles on major Chinese newspapers, for example, The World Journal. Fifth, I have been practicing Chinese calligraphy since my early childhood and have reached a high level of achievement; my calligraphic works have been exhibited many times in America as well as mainland China. In 2011, I have been elected to be the chairperson of the board of the North American Chinese Calligraphy Association.
