I grew up in China and I am a native Mandarin speaker. I started learning English when I was eight years old and speak English at a native level as well. I graduated from the University of San Francisco with a Master's Degree in Asian and Pacific Studies.

I have rich experience as a Mandarin tutor. When I was in China, I tutored English-speaking students on the HSK Level 4 test and helped them pass the test in one semester. I also helped English-speaking business persons improve their conversational skills. I worked as a Mandarin Teaching Assistant for undergraduate and graduate students when I was studying at USF; our courses ranged from Mandarin 101 to 201. Based on my knowledge in Mandarin and Chinese culture, I am able to tutor Mandarin on a variety of levels from beginner to advanced. I worked with a Mandarin teacher at the Boys and Girls Club of San Francisco teaching Mandarin. I have been working with a variety of English-speaking students to help them achieve their goals.

I am a native Mandarin Chinese speaker and certified with Mandarin Proficiency Certificate Level 1A (highest level). I took the TOEFL in 2012 and scored 112/120.

My multi-cultural, multi-linguistic background and my tutoring experience equip me with the ability to accommodate my clients by getting to know their learning background in Mandarin, talking to them to work out personalized learning plans, and developing the best learning strategies for clients with different learning goals. My clients appreciate my knowledge of the HSK test, and they also think it is very helpful that I can help them navigate the various ways of understanding Mandarin in daily life.

Great conversation tutor for teenager

My son enjoys working with Adam in order to improve his Mandarin conversation abilities. He finds Adam easy to work with; they work out lesson plans together, and Adam is great at explaining grammar and giving cultural context. My son’s school teacher noted a significant improvement in his speaking abilities and confidence in conversations in Chinese. We highly recommend Adam as a language teacher.

Adam is terrific

Adam is very patience and creative in teaching my son and helping him with this high school class. We are very happy with the progress he is making and looking forward to the keeping up the lessons for the rest of the semester.
