About Jeremy

I am a former Chinese-Linguist for the United States Air Force and teacher of Philosophy for Children (P4C) at Creighton University. I studied basic, intermediate, and advanced level Chinese at the Defense Language Institute in Monterey, CA and classical Chinese literature and poetry, as well as Chinese philosophy and religion at Creighton University.

I have primary strength in pronunciation, tone, writing, etymology and history of the Chinese (Mandarin) language. I have studied the history of China politically, culturally, and geographically.

It is my belief that if one wishes to learn a language well, one must understand its history and development, as well as the mechanics of the spoken and written language itself. Language learning is a holistic process inspiring intellectual and personal growth that can be fun, integrative, and challenging all at once!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

Chinese

I learned the language and graduated with honors at the top of my class from one of the top language institutes in the U.S. I hold an AA in Chinese-Mandarin, but have also studied Classical Chinese literature and poetry and have taught the language to both elementary and college-aged students. I have also taught logic in the language abroad in Southern China. I've written and given speeches for academic collaboration at events and dinners during vistis to China and domestically. I've also worked as a liaison and guide for visiting Chinese scholars. My education was at the Defense Language Institute in Monterey, CA and Creighton University, Omaha, NE. I currently attend Amherst College.
