EducationI am a graduate student at Columbia University, studying Chinese History. Before that I received an MA in Anthropology at Cambridge (2006), and a BA in Anthropology at Carnegie Mellon (2005).
ExperienceI've been a frequent tutor for Columbia University's visiting scholars and students who want to improve their English speaking, writing, and listening skills. While I have worked with a number of individuals from across Asia, my specialty is working with native Chinese speakers, since I have studied Chinese myself for many years. I understand the obstacles in the English language that are uniquely challenging to Chinese speakers. I find it really rewarding to help people achieve their language goals, since I too have struggled to learn a foreign language.

Lauren helped me out a lot on planning/structuring my essay! Also gave me a lot of tips for essay in writing in general for future use 10/10
She was quick to respond and her flexible schedule was a huge help in having her work with our model. She has stayed on top of the hours worked, found helpful workbooks online and even created her own worksheets in the meantime. She is willing to work with our model to focus on her specific needs. Highly recommend Laura!!
