Hello! My name is Nola Hayes and I am from Boulder, Colorado. I graduated with a degree in Chinese and Business with minors in French and Japanese from the Universita' Ca' Foscari in Venice, Italy. I have been a tutor in Italy and China for the past 6 years, and have worked with children as well as adults. I have been working for VIPKid for the past year, teaching children in China through their website. My teaching style is very hands-on, I like to create a lesson plan for each student in accordance with their needs and desires while learning English. I actually learned my conversational Mandarin on Verbling 5 years ago and would love to work for the company that helped me become proficient! Thank you!
