Experience

I speak perfect Mandarine, and very fluent English. I'm well traveled, so I have a much better understanding of the Chinese culture than most other Chinese do. I believe I can make this tutoring opportunity as entertaining as it is effectively educational. I have outstanding good communication skills. I did tutoring at university; initiated and directed a numerous educational forums. I enjoyed working with people from different backgrounds, and had some really good experiences working at several big organisations.
