About Kate

I'm excited to introduce myself to you today! I I graduated Magna Cum Laude from Barnard College in 2015, and have been teaching/ tutoring ever since my time in university. I majored in East Asian studies, and while I was a student, I served as a peer tutor for freshman and sophomores taking Mandarin.

Additionally, I put my writing skills to work by serving as a Writing Consultant for international students from China who needed guidance on how to write strong academic essays. After graduating, I received my ESL certification and moved to China, where I was able to experience working with younger students by serving as an elementary/ middle school English teacher in Shanghai. Today, I am able to work with students on any of the subjects above- Mandarin, English, Writing, and ESL. Furthermore, I worked as a translation editor (Mandarin- English) for one year in Beijing, so I am able to assist those who need proofreading and editing services as well!

I believe that all students learn differently, and when working with a student, I commit to discovering how my students learn best and work to tailor my approach to address these individual needs. I also believe that learning should be enjoyable, and I seek to understand my students' interests and passions so that I can deepen their interest and engagement with the material they are learning. I am also a patient and dedicated teacher. Having worked with everyone from adults to elementary students (including students with a different native language from mine!), I know that all people learn best when they feel comfortable and supported- and I try seriously to make sure my students are by soliciting feedback, responding positively to critiques or suggestions, and taking seriously my students' feelings and opinions.

So,if you need help with any of the subjects above, please reach out- I look forward to hearing from you!
