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 was born and raised in Japan but was always interested in learning Chinese language and culture, so I went ahead and studied Chinese as my minor concentration while I majored in Asian studies program at University of Colorado, Boulder.
As for my working experience in using Chinese, I have been largely involved in student exchange and recruitment program between Taiwan and the US schools. As far as my teaching experience is concerned, I have been teaching mostly beginning level Chinese to K12 to working professionals for the last years and I immensely enjoy teaching it.
I hope I can be any help to your need to learn more about Chinese or her culture.

Presently, I write, translate, and tutor English and Japanese as my profession.
