Lila Bates

I might still be in high school, but I have experience creating lesson plans and learning games from tutoring students in Mandarin. As a student myself, I can understand what it feels like to be frustrated while learning, and I know that patience and compassion is the best way to help a child in their time of need. Everyone has their own learning journey, and I hope I can instill in the children the idea that it's okay to not understand something on the first try. In my free time, I love to be active, especially by playing tennis with my dad. I’ve been studying Russian for two years—learning languages is definitely one of my passions.
