About Julian


Bio

I grew up abroad in Beijing, China and studied Mandarin Chinese personally and academically at Trinity University. I tutored English Composition and the Chinese language for several years in the high school and college setting, both here in the states and abroad. I'm comfortable tutoring students in a classroom setting of about 40 to 50, but am quite organic with a one on one session as well. I am now seeking graduate work in Taiwan to improve my language and teaching skills.

I grew up abroad in Beijing, China and studied Mandarin Chinese personally and academically at Trinity University. I tutored English Composition and the Chinese language for several years in the high school and college setting, both here in the states and abroad. I'm comfortable tutoring students in a classroom setting of about 40 to 50, but am quite organic with a one on one session as well. I am now seeking graduate work in Taiwan to improve my language and teaching skills.

What I love about tutoring is seeing timid, shy academics become confident with their language ability. As Middlebury College says, life does not come with subtitles. I enjoy seeing my students sit down from the moment our session begins and talk openly in the language we are learning. My primary focus is to help bridge the gap between western and eastern language acquisition.

Besides majoring in Mandarin Chinese and also teaching at Trinity University, I was privileged to undergo the nationally rigorous Middlebury Summer Language Program to better my Chinese. I have written several research topics in Chinese, as well as successfully managed and taught classes of 40 or more students in second language acquisition. Personally, I am of Chinese heritage and had the privilege of learning Chinese from family as well.

Having received a minor in comparative literature with a concentration on essay theory and composition from Trinity University, I have been a tutor to a myriad of student backgrounds. I have taught essay fundamentals as well as paragraph building at the high school and college level to a student body of 40 or more a class. I have also had over a decade of experience working with ESL students.

I encourage students to seek my guidance if they want to combine a professional, yet fun adventure in language learning or English composition. I sincerely believe the marking of a good student is when the student surpasses him, and that is what I strive to do.
