Bio

As a young working professional, I was looking for a new challenge and tutoring provides that challenge. I am an academic at heart. I love learning and loved school. I try to help those I tutor develop that same love for learning. I have a diverse background and cross-sector experience which lend a unique perspective.

As a young working professional, I was looking for a new challenge and tutoring provides that challenge. I am an academic at heart. I love learning and loved school. I try to help those I tutor develop that same love for learning.

I have a diverse background and cross-sector experience which lend a unique perspective. I was able to spend a year and a half in Hong Kong, expanding my world view and language skills. My undergraduate degree is in Geography and Asian studies. I worked as an English teacher in Taiwan, which was a wonderful cultural experience and also solidified my interest in teaching/tutoring. After returning to my hometown and working in the private sector for a few years, I decided to pursue my passion for helping others and work in the public sector. In order to facilitate this, I obtained a Master's Degree in Public Administration, which included the study of government, economics, and finance. I've always had a knack for numbers, so this allowed me to use those skills for good purposes.

In addition, I am a life-long musician and love to teach piano, flute, and voice.

I also speak Cantonese and studied Mandarin in college. I would be happy to help beginning to early intermediate Chinese students learn!

Lastly, I also have quite a bit of experience in career/resume counseling and would be happy to assist in this area.

I'm excited to meet you and learn together!
