Lesson Details

Mandarin Chinese

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate
I grew up in America speaking Chinese with my parents and is how I'm fluent in conversation in Mandarin. My writing and reading is not nearly as good as a native, which is why I don't choose to teach advanced. I've perfected the art of self-ambition in language learning, as documented in a book that I have published. Within two years of Pepperdine University pursuing an Engineering Degree I have became proficient in German, French, and Russian while only taking one elementary French class. Not only do I teach the skills for language mastery, I also teach conversational skills to get you ahead of others.

Ages 5+ and special needs

Teaching since:

I'm going to be a 3rd year student at Pepperdine University pursuing an Engineering degree. I'm a huge language learner, being able to converse in about 8 languages but I only wish to teach 3 of them for now. As someone who prefers self studying to learning from classrooms, I've perfected the method for students to improve drastically from their previous lesson by self preparing. I prefer to teach online especially for further students but those that are close I wouldn't mind commuting. My hours are pretty flexible during the weekdays.

Watch The Pool

As someone who enjoys teaching, I decided to fill up my weekend with this job by preparing the future generations of lifeguards to be well trained. Lifeguarding is something I'm really good at and interested in because of my history as a water polo player and swimmer. Giving constant demonstrations and public speaking as really increased my leadership and speaking skills.
