About Al

I offer custom-lessons. Think of this as a "Chinese Language and Culture" course rather than 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 am a graduate student at The University of Washington in the China Studies program and have studied at Wuhan University during the 2014-2015 school year. I was recently awarded the Boren Award 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 certified Chinese linguist!

If you are looking to learn Mandarin, there are several reasons 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 to Mainland China, Hong Kong and Taiwan, and 3) my goal is to get as many fluent Chinese speakers in the US as possible (not to overcharge students for only a couple hours of lessons a week; language learning requires many hours a week of lessons)!
