Georgia Institute of Technology (Chinese language)
I'm Ben, a current senior at Georgia Tech, with a major in Chinese language and minor in Film and Media Studies. I'm employed as a tutor at my university's writing center, and am hoping to continue to build my skills as a private tutor and educational professional.
I graduated from a Gwinnett high school with a 3.8 GPA, and have maintained a 3.6 during the three years I've been at Georgia Tech. I've spent much of my time as a student abroad in China, Taiwan, Singapore, and the UK, and am conversationally fluent in Mandarin Chinese and German.
I'm most interested in language, and my tutoring specialties are in writing, literature, and ESL. I'm comfortable tutoring most primary and secondary school topics, helping improve English skills, and increasing scores on standardized tests (have received high marks on PSAT, SAT, SAT Subject Tests, AP Tests).
Even if your needs fall outside my stated areas, please feel free to check with me about the subject.

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.
My bachelor's degree in Applied Languages and Intercultural Studies has incorporated courses both in language learning and linguistics, and I've put a great deal of study into phonetics, specifically regarding phonetics of English, Mandarin, and German; I've spent a great deal of time studying abroad in China and Taiwan, and feel confident that I am qualified to address speech/accent coaching needs of L1 Mandarin students specifically, but my comprehensive understanding of English phonology and grammar will allow me to work with students from any background.
