I was born in Canton, China. I am a native speaker both Cantonese and Mandarin. I am certified to teach Chinese in China. I passed my PSC (Putonghua Proficiency Test) at level 2-A in 2013. I enjoy helping you via correcting pronunciation, and grammar, and sentence comprehension, as well as introducing fantastic Chinese culture. Currently, I am pursuing my Master of Music Performance.

She also took keyboard lessons including piano and organ under the direction of Dr.Elvin Rodriguez and Dr. Kimo Smith. She performed Cello in the La Sierra University Orchestra under the direction of Dr. Dean Anderson, and accompanied in the AVPA Youth Chorus.

I have been studying Mandarin with Grace for over five months. She is very patient and professional, she speaks very good and standard Mandarin, she is very good at using different approaches whenever I make a mistake. I am looking forward to continuing my studies with her.

Grace is a wonderful teacher. I’m lucky to have found her. She is intelligent and perceptive, what I need to do to improve. She plays very beautifully and is very musical. I expect to be her student for a long time.
