I love teaching and am dedicated to making sure that everyone learns as much as possible in a fun way and in a way that they are comfortable with. I have taught English to elementary students, middle school students and adults in Macau, college students in Taiwan, and I have also taught Advanced English in Cambodia. I am also TESOL certified and work a lot with youth from my Church in San Jose. I am also going to be volunteering at the Martin Luther King Jr. Library for an adult computer class. I enjoy working with students of all ages and have lots of experience with working with people of different cultures.

I specialize in teaching English (particularly to Mandarin speaking students because I am fluent in Mandarin) and am an expert in all Microsoft Office applications. I am also proficient in general computer use and using the internet. Growing up with computers and the internet and using it in the corporate world gives me the experience to teach others. I will teach these subjects in a way that will be comfortable for the student. I can either come up with my own lessons or follow any curriculum available. I am dedicated to helping people and promise to be committed 100% to anyone that hires me for tutoring.

I am available to do an initial meeting that can be set-up and I am willing to travel to any location. I also need to know about any cancellations at least 4 hours in advance. The best way to reach me is through e-mail or by phone.

I look forward to helping you work towards your goals.
