EducationThe Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies (S.A.I.S.)-Nanjing Center: completed a one year program of graduate-level courses on economics, law, and politics taught in Chinese.

ExperienceI've tutored a middle school student in beginners Chinese language. While in China I tutored both middle school aged students and adults in beginner and intermediate English
I graduated Summa Cum Laude from DePaul University, and was awarded the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences annual Distinguished Senior Award for Chinese language.
As a sophomore in college I won second place in the Chinese Consulate's Midwest Regional Chinese Speaking Contest, and second place later again in a speaking test while studying abroad at Nanjing University.
I would like to tutor because I have a passion for studying the Chinese language and for learning about other cultures and places in the world. I would love the opportunity to help spark that interest in others. I love the experience of witnessing how students gradually improve and incorporate new material on their own as they continue to learn.
HobbiesIn my spare time I love to cook and try new cuisines. I consider myself a creative soul- I enjoy drawing, painting, crafting, and graphic design. I've been playing the guitar since I was little, and although I don't play as seriously as I used to, I still like to pick it up from time to time. I also do my best to stay active, playing volleyball and dancing (although baseball is my favorite sport to watch)
