Hi! My goal is to make learning less complicated and make it FUN and interesting. I am flexible, and since I've worked as a school nurse in the public schools for several years, I interact with students everyday. I am accessible by text, email, phone. I taught English last summer in China to elementary school students and have taught English in other camps in the past. I have a strength in organizational skills, spelling, reading, elementary English grammar, and Chinese. I am a fast responder to text and email. I hope to hear from you soon!

I am Chinese- American, I took Chinese school for many years and finished all levels. I have translated both English to Chinese speaking and Chinese to English speaking. I went to China for medical missions and to teach English these past 2 summers.


I taught ESL in Asia for the past summers. I am Chinese-American, so I understand what it means to learn English as a foreign language.

I focus on speaking and listening to improve the language.

General Music

I played the violin for 3 years in orchestra, and have taken piano lessons for many years. I am a piano amateur player, and I really enjoy music to relieve emotions. I taught piano for several years to elementary age students; my goal was to make learning fun.


I was born in the United States, and have studied in public school for all my education. I am work very well with grammar and spelling.


I have been a registered nurse for 10 years, and studied nursing an accredited university.


I had a great piano teacher and was very motivated to practice many hours a day. I am good at elementary/basic music theory. I still love to play piano for leisure even though I'm working. I played a concert in 2007.
