As a native Chinese speaker who grew up in Beijing, China, my Mandarin Chinese accent is excellent. I have been teaching Chinese for more than 8 years at an university, local high schools, and a local Chinese Sunday school. I am very good at tutoring individual students. I passed the Illinois Chinese proficiency exam with perfect scores in every subarea.

When I teach, I pay attention to a student's need and have proven teaching methods that can help student advance significantly in Chinese.

Reference from my students or their parents are available upon request.

Besides teaching Chinese as a profession, I have been practicing Chinese Qigong exercise, Tai Chi exercise, and self-massage exercise in order to stay healthy. If you would like to learn, I would be glad to teach you. You may find it as one of the most beneficial classes you have ever taken.

Chinese

I received Bachelor of Engineer degree in China and received Master of Science and Advanced Certificate Degree of Education from University of Illinois. I received a teacher’s award from the China's official government television station and from the Chinese People’s Daily (the official Chinese government newspaper) in 2007. In 2008, I presented an paper on “The Effective Use of the Computer Technologies in Chinese Teaching” at the National Conference of Chinese Schools Association in the United States. I graduated with high honors from DePaul University's Chinese Teaching Star-Talk training program in 2010. I also passed the Illinois State Chinese Proficiency Test with perfect scores in 2011, and in 2012 I completed the Advanced Chinese Teaching Training Program in Najing University, China.

Fitness

I graduated from University of Illinois leisure studies department with a master of science degree focusing on fitness and recreational therapy. For more than 30 years I have been practicing and teaching Chinese Qigong and self-massage exercise.
