I am a chemical engineer by trade, a certified Mandarin, science, and ESL teacher. As a Chicago Teaching Fellow, I have taught three years in public schools. All my graduate degrees have been earned through scholarship and grants while working either full time or part time.
I earned my undergraduate degree in Shanghai, China and two graduate degrees in the US. I worked as a research chemical engineer in China. I am fluent in both Mandarin Chinese and English, in all areas of proficiency. I am also proficient in classical Chinese, and Chinese art and calligraphy owing to my calligrapher father's tutoring early in my life.
My philosophy of education is that learning must be a heuristic process of exploration, questions are far more important than answers. Both abstract subject such as mathematics and concrete ones such as art can be equally fascinating and stimulating.
Geniuses are made, not born. I expect students to work hard. Practice perfects our learning.
