About Katya

I am a recent graduate of Georgetown University, where I majored in Government and minored in Economics and Chinese. I have studied Mandarin Chinese for 17 years and have spent extensive time living and studying in China (Beijing, Shanghai, Qingdao, and Hong Kong). I am very passionate about the Chinese language and culture and love to share this passion with others.

I have experience teaching and tutoring students of all ages. I spent a summer as a teaching assistant at ShuRen International School in Berkeley, CA, where I assisted the teacher in teaching preschoolers Mandarin Chinese. I have also tutored at a public school in Massachusetts and was a private tutor during my time in Beijing, China. In 2012, I was awarded a Critical Language Scholarship by the U.S. Department of State for Mandarin Chinese.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or to schedule lessons! Thank you!

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 have studied Mandarin Chinese for 17 years and received a minor in Mandarin Chinese from Georgetown University. In 2013, I was awarded a Critical Language Scholarship for Mandarin Chinese by the U.S. Department of State. I achieved an Oral Proficiency Interview (OPI) score of Advanced Mid in Mandarin Chinese (08/06/2013) and a Chinese Computerized Adaptive Learning Comprehension Test score of Advanced (03/04/2013). I have also studied abroad in Beijing, Qingdao, Shanghai, and Hong Kong. During the summer of 2009, I assisted in teaching preschoolers Mandarin Chinese at ShuRen International School. I have also tutored students at Sheffield Elementary School and at the Holiday Inn at Deshengmen (Beijing).
