My name is Deb, and I am a graduate of the University of Minnesota. I am of Taiwanese decent and have lived half my life in the US and the other half in Taiwan, where Mandarin Chinese is the official language.
While living in Taiwan, I tutored English to elementary, middle, and high school students, as well as adults for 4 years. Before coming to the US, I took courses in teaching Mandarin as a second language and feel confident that I can help you with your interest in Mandarin. Mandarin is the official language of both China and Taiwan and is spoken in a number of other Asian countries as well.
As this will be my first formal Mandarin teaching experience, I will charge just $10/hr. We can discuss what you want to learn, whether it be a conversation, culture, listening, reading, writing, speaking, or some of everything. I guarantee that this will be both a great learning experience and a lot of fun!
Let me know if you're interested!
