I am currently earning my Master's degree at Columbia University studying pre-modern Chinese Literature. I have been learning Mandarin since childhood and have taught beginner Chinese for a few years. I have also tutored college level English through Columbia's American Language Program. My students saw a dramatic increase in not only their writing abilities, but also their grades for each of the essays I helped them edit. I am a strong believer in pursuing higher education not only for professional or career purposes, but also for continuing to nurture one's intellectual curiosity. When I have free time, I enjoy spending time with friends, traveling around the world (Spain is my next destination on my list) and ballet.
