About Avril

After graduation from MBC&S, I started an adventure that led to my acquisition of Mandarin Chinese. I relocated to Shanghai where I lived and worked from 1988-1992. I then transferred to Beijing where I lived from 1992-1996. In both of these cities, I studied Mandarin in a university setting, taught English as second language, and worked in a hotel and an international early elementary school.

I've been married for twenty-five years and have two children. For the past six years, our family has spent the majority of our time in Mainland China.
I have been a Chinese teacher for both of my children, as well as a tutor to relocating professionals in the Baltimore region.

I am fluent in Mandarin. I have personal experience as a second language learner and have taught a variety of students with professional as well as personal goals for their study of Chinese. I have a real world knowledge of China and colloquial Chinese that encourages students to converse in a natural way instead of through rote memorization of outdated phrase book content.

Please contact me to discuss your goals and schedule lessons. Whether you need an intensified short term course or want to learn Chinese for fun, I'm sure I can meet your needs.
