About Josh

I began pursuing my D.V.M. degree at the Cornell College of Veterinary Medicine after graduating from Eastern Michigan University in 2012 with a degree in Biology. Following my first year of vet school I decided to take some time off to study advanced Mandarin Chinese at Tsinghua University in Beijing with other Mandarin speaking students from around the world. I currently work as a professional Medical Mandarin Chinese interpreter while continuing my second year of veterinary studies at Cornell. My teaching experience is diverse, ranging from leading English classes in Beijing, China to running a Medical Mandarin Chinese course for vet students at Cornell University. I have also worked with students taking high school and college level biology and Chinese courses.

My favorite subject to tutor is Mandarin Chinese, because I know exactly how to help new or experienced learners advance their skills rapidly and efficiently and I really enjoy seeing students make breakthroughs on the way to fluency in Chinese. Between the four tones of spoken Mandarin and the 4,000 plus characters, there are plenty of obstacles to overcome when learning Mandarin Chinese. I enjoy using innovative methods to provide tips and reveal patterns in Chinese language that help students make the learning process not only more intuitive but also enjoyable. As a tutor I consider each students learning style and needs unique and work specifically to come up with goals that address areas of interest and to tackle particularly challenging issues within each subject.

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.

Biology

I was a biology major and I studied veterinary medicine at Cornell University. I have extensive biology research experience, particularly in genetics, microbial ecology and molecular biology. I have international research and biology study experience in Ecuador, the Galapagos Islands, and in China. I received many biology research awards during my undergraduate studies.

Chinese

I passed the HSK Level 6 with a high score and the ACTFL Oral Proficiency Interview (OPI) with the highest possible ranking. I currently work as a professional medical interpreter of Mandarin Chinese/English. I studied in China for a year in Beijing, at Tsinghua University. I currently teach a group of veterinary students medical Chinese once a week.

Genetics

I received an A in genetics in undergrad and I research involving genetic and molecular biology techniques. I also took a course on genetics in veterinary school.
