I am a senior at Loyola University Chicago, majoring in international studies and minoring in Chinese and English. I will be graduating this spring and plan to return to China next fall, where I recently spent a semester abroad studying Mandarin intensively. I have a passion for learning languages, and have also studied Spanish and German for several years. In the past I have tutored Chinese students looking to improve their conversational English skills as well as American elementary school students in basic reading and reading comprehension skills. My favorite subject to tutor is reading and writing because I am passionate about sharing the rich heritage and nuances of my native tongue with others. Outside of languages, I enjoy traveling, reading, swimming, dancing and attending plays or concerts. I believe that the key driver of academic success is genuine interest in the subject. As a tutor, my foremost aim is to find new and creative ways to provoke curiosity and excitement in the student, because after all, learning must first and foremost be fun!!
