I want to help students discover the joys and passion for learning a new language, experiencing a new culture, and gaining a knowledge they will take with them for a lifetime.
Over the past 6 years, I have studied Mandarin Chinese and Chinese Culture extensively. I graduated from St. Olaf College in 2015 with a Bachelors in Asian Studies, Chinese, and History.
During the summers of my college career, I worked with Concordia Language Villages at the Chinese camp, Sen Lin Hu ().
During the fall semester of 2013, I studied Chinese at East China Normal University () in Shanghai China.
During the summer of 2014, I taught English at a summer camp in Taiwan for a month.
Over the past 2 years, I lived and taught English to students in doctoral programs at ECNU. During that time I also taught English math to middle school students. In addition during that time I I traveled extensively to China, Japan, Taiwan, and Thailand.
