I am a university professor from China.

My bachelor degree is in Computer Automation. My first master degree is in English Language and Literature. Since I got my master's, I have been teaching college English (reading, listening, speaking and writing) at Dalian Polytechnic University, China.

In 2001, I went to King's College London to be trained as an IELTS teacher. In 2003, I got my second master's in Technology and TESOL from University of Manchester, UK.

In China, I have all kinds of experiences in teaching English to different level students (from 9 years old to 30). I am very proficient in tutoring students of preparing for their IELTS and TOEFL.

In the UK and USA, I worked for some educational associations for helping some students, who immigrated from China, with their learning at school.

In my spare time, I have been practicing Tai Chi for many years, and I got a qualification certificate from the government authority.

I love reading, singing, and dancing. When I work in the UK and USA, my research mainly focuses on Technology Application in Language Teaching & Learning.

I am also expanding my research area to cross-culture.

I teach English at the University level. I have experience tutoring elementary school children whose second language was English in the Tuscaloosa school system. I am able to communicate effectively with elementary school children when teaching them grammar, reading, math, social studies and science.

Tai Chi is a type of martial art. I have been practicing it for ten years. I am proficient at Tai Chi, Tai Chi Sword, Tai Chi Knife and Tai Chi fan. I am a voluteer teacher in some American churches.

Phonics

To teach Chinese students English we always start with phonem system. We teach the students with video and audio to notice the shape of the mouth, vibration of air through the larynx and nose, the movement of the tongue and et cetera when words are pronounced. So I am good with phonics.
