Dear student and parents,

It is my great pleasure to introduce myself to you. I am a Chinese-born American, who can speak and write fluent Mandarin. More importantly, I used to be a Chinese language teacher.
I possess degrees of Ph.D. in biomedical science, as well as master and bachelor of education. Beside these academic degrees, I also possess five certificates including Superior level of Chinese Language Oral Proficiency Interview (OPI) and Writing Proficiency Test (WPT) issued by American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Language (ACTFL); Senior Chinese language Instructor training; Standard Chinese (Mandarin) Proficiency; as well as psychological consultation. I am confident that I am the qualified Chinese teacher whom you are looking for.
I had two years of experience teaching Chinese language and math in an elementary school, and had five years of experience teaching Chinese language in a high school, when I was in China. After obtaining my master degree, I joined a volunteer lecturer team and was sent by the government to a less developed area in northern China, where we provided training to improve the quality of local middle school English language teachers in 1987. During that time, I worked as the group leader of an English language teaching group.
Currently, I teach Chinese language in two community Chinese schools in Marietta and Johns Creeks. I also have American students who take private lessons with me. So, I am very proud to tell you that no matter where I teach, my students love me as a person and loved my teaching as their teacher, because I am knowledgeable, patient, friendly, and always eager to help them.
How do I teach my students? Here is my teaching philosophy: teach students in accordance with their aptitude; educate someone according to his natural ability; modify one's way of teaching to suit the special requirements of each class or case; suit the teaching to the ability of the individual pupil.
My teaching strategy totally depends on the age of my students and their level of experience and knowledge of their Chinese language. I prefer a personalized education, which means that I would teach my student according his/her characteristics. To help a student make significant progress, I will make a personalized teaching plan. Discussion and communication would take place often between my student and I, because this will help me learn about my student’s needs.
Is Chinese difficult to learn? It really depends how you look at it. I would say that studying Chinese can be fun, and that is the experience I would like to create for my students. My goal is to provide a low-pressure environment while maintaining student interest in learning Chinese.
I prefer a goal-oriented teaching strategy. From the very beginning, I will ask my potential students about what goals they want to achieve from my class. I will evaluate my student’s Chinese proficiency. From there, my student and I will work together to set up both short term and long term goals for studying Chinese language with me. I will help you make progress and achieve your goals based on the time frame that we set up in the beginning.
With all of that said, I would like to underscore that you will get out of this class what you put into it. Practice, practice, and practice! Together with me, we will go through a lot of practice, because only practice allows you to learn real and useful Mandarin.
If you have any questions, I will be more than happy to discuss them with you.
Please feel free to call or email me. I am sure you won’t be disappointed.
You are welcome to talk to me using Chinese.
