I'm a Chinese native speaker from Shanghai, China. I got my bachelor's degree in English Translation and Interpretation at Fudan University, Shanghai, China. I furthered my education, receiving my master's degree in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages at the Graduate School of Education, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The courses I took during my undergraduate and graduate study included curriculum and material design, pedagogical methodology, language assessment, close and extensive reading, etc.
Since college, I've been tutoring in English subjects, including elementary school level, high school level, TOEFL, IELTS, SAT, etc at at different language institutions in China. After coming to US, I've also been teaching ESL and Chinese (Mandarin) at entry level, intermediate level and advanced level for various programs such as summer camps, after- and in-school language programs, etc. Many students say they love the way I teach, and parents tell me their kids are really into what they learn and have made huge progress.
I'm an organized, responsible, and careful person. My teaching philosophy is that motivation is everything. I'll try every means to motivate students to their uttermost on what they are learning. For young learners, stories, pictures, and activities will be used to make the language fun and easy to learn. For adult learners, explanations of grammar, class interactions, relevant assignments will effectively enhance their language learning. To put it short, you'll love and achieve what you're learning here, which is the best reward for me as a teacher.
I'm a native speaker of Chinese and I've lived in Shanghai, China for the past 22 years. I'm proficient in Chinese Mandarin and Shanghainese dialect. For the past year, I worked at All About Mandarin Academy as a Chinese instructor to teach entry and intermediate level of Chinese language. I usually adopt story telling, colorful pictures, and relevant songs in my class to create an interactive atmosphere for learning.
I earned a Master degree of Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages at Graduate School of Education, University of Pennsylvania in May, 2012. The courses I took include curriculum and material design, pedagogical methods, language assessment, language structure, etc. I've worked with students from diverse cultural and language backgrounds, so I especially understand the difficulties and frustrations of non-native learners.
I am an international student who took TOEFL to apply for graduate schools in US. My IBT score was 110 in total: 29 in Reading, 25 in Listening, 26 in Speaking and 30 in Writing. With that score, I was admitted by University of Pennsylvania, Duke University, George Washington University, Ohio State University, and Boston University. Finally I went to University of Pennsylvania and earned a Master's of Education there.
