Experience

I am a bilingual tutor who is fluent in both English and Chinese Mandarin. I tutor a variety of subjects, but my passions are helping students with critical reading and English essay writing. I also specialize in helping high school students write personal statements needed for their college applications, and helping students prepare for the SAT test. I have experience tutoring a wide variety of students, including ESL students who may be struggling in their classes due to deficiencies in their English language skills. I first earned my bachelor's degree in Foreign Affairs and Economics with a focus in International Economics. I then went on to earn my master's degree in Marketing and Management at the University of Virginia's McIntire School of Commerce. When students are not interested in writing and reading, I think that they just lack the proper motivation. I strive to help students who think they don't have the talent to become great writers realize that they can develop the talent. I believe that talent can be cultivated and is not simply something a person must be born with. When not tutoring, I enjoy singing, and I have taken part in singing competitions in Asia. I also enjoy drawing and reading.
