Bio

Hello! I'm a rising sophomore who splits time between Waltham, MA for school at Brandeis University, and Chicago, IL over the summer. I've loved learning Chinese since I started in 2013, and I'm extremely passionate about the language and culture. I spent the summer of 2016 in Tianjin, China and fell in love with the daily life and history of China today. I'm very social, welcoming, and can tutor a wide range of fluency levels.

Hello! I'm a rising sophomore who splits time between Waltham, MA for school at Brandeis University, and Chicago, IL over the summer. I've loved learning Chinese since I started in 2013, and I'm extremely passionate about the language and culture. I spent the summer of 2016 in Tianjin, China and fell in love with the daily life and history of China today. I'm very social, welcoming, and can tutor a wide range of fluency levels.
I started tutoring in high school, quickly learning I loved to share knowledge, and even struggling students can do well with the right guidance. I love to share stories of living abroad, as well as having impromptu practice conversations about anything and everything! Mandarin has been my favorite subject for many years, and I hope to share that with others!

Not only do I have classroom experience, my time abroad developed my speaking fluency greatly. Additionally, I spent much of the last school year tutoring both native Chinese students and adults in English, in exchange receiving help and practice with my own language fluency. Learning Mandarin requires an emphasis on tone, vocabulary, and practice, but can be a very interesting language as well!

I'm very flexible during this upcoming summer and can start lessons as soon as May 1st! I'm very excited about spreading my enjoyment of learning Chinese, and I hope to inspire you to feel the same!
