About meHello and 你好！I am Kate and love speaking Mandarin. Even though I grew up in a small town in Alabama, I had a big vision to learn Chinese and live in China. For almost five years, I lived and worked in China. It’s been almost seven years since I went back, so I am eager to revamp the passion. Interestingly, my brother also learned Mandarin and my niece is in an Chinese immersion school program. We get together twice a month to practice speaking, cook Chinese food, and play maijiang (my favorite game!). I have formal language training from Middlebury College and with 北京大学学越 (a university in Beijing). One of my jobs in China was a training manager at a local microfinance bank, where I also taught English to the children of our clients. More recently, I have been working from home with an online retailer and my company closed last week, so I have lots of time available to teach! I have a new computer and cell phone to easily video chat and use for teaching. Looking forward to connecting soon!
