Coming from Singapore, I am bilingual in English and Chinese. I graduated from JCU with a double major in English and East Asian Studies. I worked at JCU's Writing Center and was a Teaching Assistant for a couple of Chinese language classes. In spring 2012, I was awarded the Francis Smith Senior Essay Award from the English department for my senior honors project, as well as a certificate for Outstanding Achievement in Intermediate Japanese.

I have completed translation projects between English and Chinese in both academic and professional settings. Last year, I scored 162/170 on the revised GRE verbal reasoning portion, placing me in the 90th percentile.

I am good at explaining difficult concepts and will work at the student's pace and needs. Ultimately, it is important to me that students maximize their potential, gain an appreciation for what they are learning and are able to apply that knowledge both in class and beyond.

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've studied Chinese for ten years and was a teaching assistant for one year. I have been tutoring Chinese for a few years now.

Photography

I received my degree in Visual Communication at Temasek Polytechnic in Singapore, focusing on photography. I finished a 3 month paid internship at one of the top advertising photography studios in Singapore. I participated in a group photography exhibition at 2902 Gallery in 2008. I've had photographs published in the fall 2011 Carroll Review.

Piano

I had piano lessons from age 10-16. I have a grade 6 certification for the practical piano exam under the Associated Board of the Royal School of Music (ABRSM).
