"I have also volunteered as a tutor for an adult education program aimed at teaching computer and English skills and preparing students for GED testing. Learning Mandarin here in the States can be a daunting task for any student. Besides the obvious obstacles of differentiating tones and writing characters, the language is infused with many cultural nuances that add to its beauty as well as its complexity. As a native speaker of English myself I know just how difficult learning Mandarin can be."

"In fact, I grew up learning Spanish as my first language in Lima, Peru. After getting my B.A in Elementary education, I moved to the U.S and have been working with babies, kids, teenagers and adults helping them learn Spanish. I currently teach Pre-K - 8th at a private school and I enjoy every minute of it, especially when they speak Spanish spontaneously. I believe that learning a language takes time and practice, as well as self-motivation and commitment."
