Bio

I bring a strong background in Mandarin, having studied in institutions, in the workplace, and on the street. As a "foreigner," I know you may read this with a bias against me, but I'm confident my Chinese won't disappoint. If you want to meet in person and put me to the test, you're completely welcome to.

I bring a strong background in Mandarin, having studied in institutions, in the workplace, and on the street. As a "foreigner," I know you may read this with a bias against me, but I'm confident my Chinese won't disappoint. If you want to meet in person and put me to the test, you're completely welcome to.

My most valuable exposure to Chinese includes a semester of language study at Nanjing University as well as work as a localizer for a Chinese game company in Shenzhen for a year, during which I used Mandarin all day every day. By having lived in and visited dozens of cities in mainland China, I'm well connected to the ever-evolving culture of modern day China and keep up with the latest lingo and current events.

Want to find Chinese music, TV shows, books, recipes or other Chinese media? I believe in integrating your interests into learning, and making lessons flexible based on your needs. I had to go through the process of learning Chinese myself, so I've been in your shoes before and I'll do my best to take that into account. While I use simplified, I'm comfortable working with students of traditional, and can switch between Beijing or Taiwanese accents based on your preference.

Chinese

Chinese

I've studied Chinese in both academic and informal settings, acquiring the language in intensive immersion programs (CET, CIEE) as well as personally immersing myself in a Chinese lifestyle for 1.5 years in cities such as Beijing, Nanjing, and Shenzhen. I've read a dozen or so Chinese novels and listen to Chinese radio stations, audiobooks, and watch TV programs, and will help my students do the same. I can emulate both Beijing and southern (Southern with or without some Taiwanese mixed in) accents extremely well and have a knowledge of the writing system including stroke orders and radicals. I also know what it's like to be learning Chinese, since I've gone through every part of the learning stage myself.
