Since I graduated from Wuhan Medical University, I have gained over a decade of experience in teaching Mandarin Chinese to English-speaking students. I have experience working with students from elementary school age to high school age, whether they don't yet know pinyin (the Chinese alphabet) or need help preparing for an exam to receive foreign language credits. As a teacher, I believe that individualized attention and custom curriculums can make a big difference, which is why I develop all of my teaching material myself. I tailor my classes to each student's personal goals, whether that means focusing on conversational basics or spending more time writing compositions. In my spare time, I'm a photographer, a gardener, and a swimmer.
