About Al

I offer a full "Chinese Language and Culture" course, rather than just tutoring sessions. I will ensure that you are equipped with the proper knowledge to live in China and communicate with the locals there, and you will become familiar with popular Chinese culture during this course. The emphasis is on the student's personal interests and lifestyle!

I currently work in a Chinese company as a marketing manager, and I am a graduate student at the University of Washington in the China Studies program. During the 2014-2015 school year, I studied at Wuhan University in China as a graduate student. Recently the Boren Award was awarded to me for my ability in Mandarin, which is a highly sought-after honor among my Chinese-speaking peers. I am also an experienced educator and a qualified Chinese linguist (3 separate exams). For 10 years now, I have used Mandarin! For three of these years, I have lived in China.

There are several great reasons why you should choose me to teach you: 1) I can better explain the Chinese language to a native English speaker than a Chinese person can, 2) I have extended experience abroad in Mainland China, Hong Kong and Taiwan, and 3) lessons with me are affordable to encourage you to spend more time learning, leading you to be more successful with Mandarin!

I can teach both Simplified and Traditional characters of Mandarin.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.
