I have a very strong interesting in teaching Chinese. With experience working at middle school for four years and at newspaper for more than three years in China, and with a PHD degree in Chinese literature, I have a diverse background with much to offer.
In 1994, after graduated from a normal school, I became a teacher in a middle school in my hometown and taught Chinese and English. I had been part-time teacher at a high-school of Beijing and a university of Shanghai for half a year when I studied for my Master degree in Beijing and PHD degree in Shanghai. Besides, I did a lot of tutoring too, including Chinese students and foreign students, during my study period in Shanghai and Beijing .
I have student teaching experience on the primary and intermediate level, in both suburban and urban school districts, in both Chinese student and foreign student. I particularly enjoyed working with my students. At one time, they taught me much also.
Besides, I have laid a solid foundation of specialized knowledge of Chinese literature, both ancient literature and modern literature. In 2003, I obtained my Master’s degree in Chinese ancient literature from The Capital Normal University, Beijing. This summer, I obtained my PHD in Chinese modern literature from The Fudan University, Shanghai.
I also had been a journalist of Literature Press in Shanghai for four years and became a free-lance writer and literary critic in 2006. This summer, I published my first book Luan Tan——commenting on some books, some people and some things(Jiangxi Science and Technology Press, 2011.5). Now, I am writing my second book Letters From Boston in Boston. I think a wealth of life and writing experience is very helpful in teaching.
