Private tutor in New York, NY
University of Western Australia - BComm., Investment Finance, Japanese , New York University - MA, Foreign Language Education (Mandarin)
I earned my master's in Foreign Language Education (Mandarin) through the Steinhardt School of Education, Culture, and Human Development at NY University. I achieved my BA at the University of Western Australia. There, I majored in Finance, Financial Accounting, and Corporate Finance. My native languages is Mandarin, and I am also fluent in Japanese and English. Having a multicultural background, which includes these languages, enhances my ability to share various experiences with the students I tutor. When I first realized my interests were mainly in education and business, I wasn't sure they would work well together. I have always enjoyed teaching languages wherever I went. Even in high school, I tutored a number of students in Mandarin Chinese, and recently, I've tutored the VP of Operation in the company where I work in Mandarin. This has given me the opportunity to combine my interest in business and in education. I don't tend to use textbooks when I tutor, but rather, I choose authentic materials. This is more helpful in teaching students speaking and listening skills at all levels, and giving them the chance to practice writing and reading to proficiency. When tutoring a language, I focus on my student's interests, so we may use their current taste in music, their cultural experiences, or history--whatever they are interested in--to learn the language.
