I grew up in the States and have been a translator to my relatives and parents from English to Chinese. have taught beginning Chinese to my friends' daughters for a year until they moved away. So either if you want to learn Chinese or English, I can help and assist.

I am a foodie. I have been in the food business for over 15 years. I have worked as an Asian food specialist in those 15 years. If you have questions on Asian food products or cooking instructions; let me tell you I can help. If you feel intimidated in an Asian grocery store and would like a tour in any Asian grocery stores I would be happy to give tours.

Chinese

I have taken Chinese 101, 102, and 103 at the University of Washington to polish my Chinese. After taking three years of Chinese I was asked to tutor two Chinese girls by a friend. I taught them basic speaking and replying. I made Pinyin worksheets for them to work on and practice character writing. In addition I would take my students Asian food store shopping to get them to learn daily vocabs when shopping.
The two Chinese language I teach are putong hua/Mandarin and Cantonese.

Cooking

I worked in the food business for 15 years. I started out at my cousins restaurant as a server explaining and describing the menu to customers. My parents own a grocery store the size of Thriftway and I was the food coordinator. I demo'd food products and gave our customers recepies to follow and taught them the process of cooking. Later I became a Asian Food Specialist working for a specialty grocery store. I did food translation and teach my customers how to cook Asian Food. I tour my friends in Asian Stores on preperation and the story behind all food products to let them know how food is handled.
