Welcome to my class. My name is Lu C., and you can call me by my English name Lucy. Currently I teach first grade and sixth grade Chinese class in two local learning centers. I have a wonderful husband and two beautiful and smart girls, seven years old Erin and three years old Angela. In my spare time, I like to tell stories for young kids. I enjoy reading the fairy tales, classical novels, autobiographies, and business newspapers. Also, I enjoy seeing the dramatic movies, comedies, and cartoons. I’ve traveled extensively in Asia, Europe, and America. Making a lot of new friends is a very perfect thing to me. To keep learning and working is a very important thing in my life.
I graduated from Shanghai Education Institute in China. My major is Chinese linguistics and literature. Before I came to U.S, I had taught five years in a junior high school and two years in a special organization for international cultural exchange. I took charge of teaching seventh and eighth grade Chinese class. Also, I was a private instructor for school tutoring center. While working with overseas cultural service center, I was responsible for teaching and training Chinese writing and spoken language for business practice. I really enjoy teaching young kids in Chinese, and I have trained in early childhood development program, so I have many teaching experiences for different age group children. My philosophy is to let every kid learn practical language from repetitive and continual practice. I see a new language learning as an integral part of each child’s social, emotional, intellectual and physical growth. As an excellent teacher, I have potential skills that I feel are very important in the teaching career.
1. Satisfy kids and help them feel good about themselves by helping them to have fun.
2. Encourage the kids to do as much for them as possible.
3. Through intensive listening, talking, reading, and writing (in the future) to help kids expand on the knowledge and learning skill.
4. Give opportunities for children or to make choices, solve problems and see the results of their decisions.
There are ten step processes for learning a new language.
(1) Listening and understanding stage. (2) Repeat to talk simple words. (3) Repeat to talk full sentences and questions. (4) Using single words spontaneously. (5) Using key phrase spontaneously. (6) Creating own sentences. (7) Initiatively ask questions. (8) Independently create complex sentences. (9) Fluently express some past, present and future events. (10) Conversing proficiently.
From beginning to intermediate, from intermediate to advance, every kid can get great language improvement by continuous studying every day, every week, every year. I will do my best to teach this class. Hope everyone enjoy my Chinese class, and like to learn Chinese.
