I graduated from ASU with a degree in business management. I have been tutoring students in Mandarin both in China and the US.
My first language is Mandarin, so I am able to help you with the language with native fluency. I know how we talk in China; if you are traveling to China and would like to order some food in a restaurant or make some friends, I can help you achieve your goal.
I am an outgoing and easy-talk person, movies, travel, music, foods are my favorites. I will try my best to help you with patiences and find some interesting topics we can share.
