More than language: China is truly a vast and fascinating country, I have travelled to most of the provinces in China (70% of the country), and many China Towns in others countries, so I can help you have a deep understanding of the various Chinese cultures rather than just the language alone.

Accent tricks: Master in Beijing Mandarin accent (dominated in Mainland China) and Taiwanese Mandarin accent (dominated in Taiwan and many overseas Chinese communities), which helps you make more connection when you speak to Chinese from different backgrounds.

Writing in a Chinese way: Level 8 Traditional Chinese calligraphy certified by Renmin University, help you appreciate Chinese writing art (also helps you learn Japanese calligraphy).

2015-2017, Nanjing, China.
Volunteering Mandarin tutor for students from the U.S., Barbados, Cambodia and Portugal, helped American friends practised the ACTFL Oral Proficiency Interview(OPI) for Mandarin.

About

Travel: Adaptability to foreign cultures and experience living abroad. Lived in Taiwan, Macao, and the US; travelled throughout Europe and Southeast Asia.
Interests: Traditional Chinese calligraphy (Level 8 certified by Renmin University); Sports (Yoga, Tennis, Hiking, Biking), Photography.

I also love the indigenous culture, and one of the reasons why I came to New Zealand is to learn more about the indigenous culture here, specifically the Maori’s. I have worked as a designer for the very first Bunun indigenous language library and press in Hualien, Taiwan: " Bunch of Millet Malas-Bunun Independent Publishing Studio". I love Taiwan and know the local culture very well after year-long exchange program. I am always mistaken as a Taiwanese because of my Taiwanese Mandarin accent. However, of course, my parents prefer to talk to me with original Shandong accent.
