Hello, I'm a Mandarin native speaker from Taiwan. I have tutoring experiences in Australia and USA for both kids and adults. I like one-to one class because it's the best way for me to customize course for student. I have art and design background, and I also like history and culture. I would like to combine those elements in my class, so you will learn more than a language.
