About Joshua

A native of Westport, CT, I began studying Mandarin on a whim in the fall of 2007 as a sophomore in high school. My first teacher, a native of Beijing, instilled a love and wonder of this ancient and increasingly important language, a sense that I never experienced with any other language. I excelled from then on, winning best student in Chinese for the remainder of my time at high school. I received my BA in Chinese from Bryant University, and have spent summers abroad in intensive language courses in Hangzhou, China and Taipei, Taiwan.

I have the skills and experience to teach you Mandarin effectively. I speak fluently with a native accent and have excellent reading/writing skills. I've had nearly a decade of Chinese study under my belt, under the tutelage of a long list of experienced native instructors. I will custom-tailor a comprehensive approach to your learning needs. I will incorporate reading/writing software and language immersion techniques to put you on the fast-track to Mandarin proficiency and fluency.

Please feel free to contact me at any time! If you do choose to hire me as your tutor, I will work hard for you to make sure you learn!
