Über Mich

Hi, my name is Jake Birdwell! I am a student at the University of Oxford and have 7 years of language experience in Mandarin. In addition to 6 years of in classroom study, I spent one summer participating in a language intensive in China and another entire summer on the NSLI-Y US State Department Language Scholarship studying in Taiwan. After my summer in Taiwan, I tested into the Advanced Mid category of the ACTFL language guidelines (one level below native speaker). My personal belief about studying Mandarin is that you must love the learning process, because it is an extremely complex language for non-native speakers. Thus, I strive to tailor my teaching approach to the goals each student so that you both engage and enjoy the experience. I am open to teaching anyone from complete beginners to intermediate students who are looking to build upon their accumulated skills. As a native English speaker, I am also more than happy to tutor native Mandarin speakers in English.
