I love to spread the Chinese language to others, and feel my knowledge would help those wanting to learn the language.

Autism runs a spectrum. I have had many years experience with students at either end of the spectrum and everywhere in between. Knowing the student, assessing the individual needs, and implementing an appropriate program and tutoring sessions comes quite naturally to me. Life skills and appropriate socialization skills are often more important than any subject content.
