Six years ago, I came to the U.S. with my parents from Southern China when I was in middle school. Six years later, I became a fluent English speaker, and I am in college to get a higher education. If people would ask, "What would you consider as unforgettable in your life?" I would say that it is the experience of living in China. I was born and grew up in China for 15 years. There was a lot of happiness in learning Chinese and its culture. While I had Chinese lessons, I practiced reading and writing. I always got A's on my writing exam because I learned to express my feeling and critical thinking through writing.

I would like to share with the Chinese learners about the happiness I had in learning and speaking in Chinese. In my teaching experience with children, kids learn faster in Chinese through game and repetition. Today,I work a part-time Chinese teacher in a private French school. I use pictures, children's book, games, and songs as teaching materials. I am so grateful to hear my students (from age 3 to 8) start to speak simple sentences in Chinese. That became my motivation to teach Chinese.

In addition,I passed SAT II Chinese with 800 during High School. I also good at solving math problems like Algebra 1 and Algebra 2. It is important for a students to understand the math method in algebra because that can affect students on getting into higher levels in math. I would offer up my best for your children, and that is my responsibility as a tutor.

Chinese

As a native Chinese speaker, I enjoy teaching others Chinese because I could see people have the urge to learn through their face expression. Many people would be surprised to know that Cantonese and Mandarin are consider as Chinese. However, they tone and the way to speak Cantonese and Mandarin are totally different. I grew up in Southern China, so I am good at speaking and writing in Cantonese and Mandarin. I also have a great understanding in Chinese culture since I lived in China for 15 years. I have experienced on teaching young kids in Chinese one-by-one. By talking and correcting the pronunciation, people learn Chinese more quickly through daily conversation. Usually, I would use English and Chinese in teaching. In addition, I can also use only Chinese in teaching if it is required.

In my teaching, conversation is very important because people can learn faster through talking. For those who want to learn Chinese character, there are different textbooks or material for them to learn how to write. In addition, I have different level of textbooks for teaching Chinese. Flash cards, games, and cartoon video are the teaching materials I have prepared for teaching. Play to learn, that is my teaching style.
