I am a graduate of Washington University in Saint Louis. I received a Bachelor of Arts in classics with a focus in Latin Elegiac poetry and a minor in comparative literature. In high school, I studied abroad in Beijing, where I had the opportunity to take intensive Mandarin Chinese courses, travel across Chinese provinces including Tianjin, Shanxi, Guangzhou, Shanghai, and Shandong, and live with a host family. In this experience, I tutored Chinese migrant workers in English. After graduating high school, I took a gap year before starting my undergraduate degree. I returned to Beijing and worked in a Chinese office. In my free time, I traveled with my roommate across China, Hong Kong, and Thailand. Additionally, I tutored a Chinese high school student in English. I have also had various experiences tutoring American middle school students in math, science, and writing. While I tutor a broad range of subjects, I am most passionate about Latin, Ancient Greek, Mandarin Chinese, Cantonese Chinese, and math. In my experience helping students with their studies, we always have the most fun practicing languages and finding daily applications. I welcome students of all ages, from elementary school to older adulthood, as I believe education can be enjoyable and accessible for everybody. I am a firm proponent of establishing a positive student-tutor relationship, as developing the ability to recognize patterns and problem-solve requires trust and open communication. I try to impart the ability to learn outside of the classroom with the skills that I teach. Moreover, I am comfortable working with students who have learning disabilities. In terms of test prep, I believe that steady effort can achieve great success. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, watching TV/movies/YouTube, creating art, thinking about fashion, spending time with my loved ones, and learning about personal finance.
