About Tina

Having just moved back from Shanghai after working there for 4 years, I'm excited to help students and adults learn a second language - whether Mandarin Chinese or ESL!

I graduated from Duke University with a BS in Economics, BA in Comparative Areas Studies, and minor in Chinese. I'm a native Mandarin speaker, growing up in a Taiwanese family on the east coast.

In addition to 4 years in Shanghai, I've also taught English Summer Programs at Beijing Capital Normal University for middle and high school students. I've tutored ESL for families in Taiwan as well.

For tutoring sessions in-person, lessons can go beyond just language learning. Currently, I tutor Mandarin with baking lessons (or baking in Mandarin!) to a twelve-year-old. Combining two lessons in one, we've found this to be a super fun setup. I studied Pastry Arts at The French Culinary Institute in New York City and hope to share my passion for new experiences with students!

Please reach out with any questions or schedule a lesson!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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 grew up speaking Mandarin Chinese in the home with parents from Taiwan. I've studied abroad in Beijing and have a Chinese Minor from Duke University. Most recently, I lived in Shanghai for 4.5 years, working with Chinese colleagues. I currently tutor middle school students in conversational Mandarin.
