With a Harvard degree, knowledge and passion, I can lead you or your children to the Ivy League.
I have taught college students at Harvard and Brandies University, adult learners at the Cambridge Center for Adult Education, high school students at a prestigious private school, and young children from families with Chinese background. The teaching positions have provided me with the opportunities to be familiar with students of a wide range of ages and various cultural backgrounds.
In language study, I stress on building up a solid foundation for further studies by training students with daily practice in four areas, speaking, listening, reading and writing. At the same time, I have also endeavored to create a relaxed, passionate and stimulating environment for study by incorporating lectures, projects, and visual and audio materials. Students and their parents have been generous in expressing their appreciation of my enthusiasm for the material, my thoughtfulness of the students' feelings, and my dedication to arousing the students’ interests in their language learning.
In history study, I approach teaching from my own experience as a student, teaching fellow students and parent. I believe the fundamental goal of teaching is to foster learning, which occurs only after an instructor arouses students’ interests in the subjects. In broader terms, history classes aim to help students better understand the present not only with the knowledge of human beings' past, but also the skills in thinking critically about what they hear, see and read. As a teacher, I guide students toward these goals by imparting knowledge, sharing my experience and enthusiasm in history and building connections between what we are here and now with those in other times or places.
