My love for languages began at a very young age, and I have loved sharing this passion every step of the way.

I have a dual Bachelor of Art's degree in Linguistics and Asian studies, with minors in the Chinese and Japanese languages. Since then, I have been pursuing graduate studies in Chinese at the University of Washington, with a focus on historical linguistics, but I have continued studying Classical Japanese and Kambun along the way. I have a strong interest and have spent a lot of my academic career pursuing questions regarding language study, child language acquisition, bilingual language acquisition, and second language acquisition. I currently teach Instructional Technology workshops and custom consultations, and I do have some prior experience with language tutoring, guided study groups, and other skill based teaching/tutoring (such as sewing and design). I am most comfortable working with students in the First to Third years of language study. But whether you are brand new and only looking for basic conversation skills to get through a trip, or looking for someone to help guide you through your intermediate/advanced college lessons, I hope that I can help!

I find it incredibly rewarding to help people meet their goals, to learn something new, or learn how to approach a subject in a new way. I am positive, I believe that everyone can learn more, and I try to keep my clients motivated, challenged, but not overwhelmed.

I am happy to schedule a free consultation meeting to discuss your goals. My base pay is $40/hour, and I do prefer that cancellations or rescheduling requests be within 2-3 hours of the appointed time.

I have been studying Japanese for almost 10 years, and I have been studying modern (Mandarin) Chinese for 6 years, and Classical Chinese for 4 years. I offered volunteer/informal Japanese tutoring at Austin Community College for 2 semesters, and actively worked with study groups throughout my undergraduate career.

I look forward to hearing from you!

I have a Bachelor of Art's Degree in Linguistics and East Asian Studies from the University of Texas at Austin. Since then, I have continued my study as a graduate student at the University of Washington in Chinese Linguistics, and work part time with the Chinese University of Hong Kong for a Childhood Bilingual Language Acquisition study.
