EducationThe University of Texas at Austin, B.A. French with minor in Chinese.
Gained fluency in French from studying abroad in France. I am a native speaker in both Mandarin Chinese and English.
I was born and raised in in Taiwan, so Mandarin Chinese is my mother language. In 2002-2003, I studied in France as an exchange student with AFS. Ever since my year abroad, I continue to cultivate my knowledge of the French language and culture.

ExperienceI assisted ESL students in various academic subjects since middle school. My first official tutoring position start in the fall 2007, where I tutored students in college-level French and high-school math.
In addition to offering private lessons, I have also taught Chinese Schools on the weekends for over 4 yrs. I started out teaching 4 to 6 year-olds at the Xiang Yun Temple. Later, I offered instructions in Mandarin Chinese to heritage students at the Austin Taiwanese Presbyterian Church Chinese School. Until 2014, I've taught non-heritage students in the first level Chinese as Second Language class (CSL Red) at the Austin Chinese School.
I've always enjoyed learning and helping people learn. Hence, tutoring and working with students has been one of the most fulfilling experiences for me.
