As a native speaker with a Master's in Linguistics and a New Jersey issued certification for teaching Chinese language (I've also obtained the highest rating on Chinese Oral proficiency and a full score on the written test), I am equipped with thorough knowledge of Chinese language and know what's effective for teaching Mandarin to speakers of English. In addition, I had two years of successful teaching experience at a Chinese college before I came to the U.S.
Most importantly, I am passionate about the Chinese language and eager to share my knowledge and committed to helping students reach their goals and taking them to a new place intellectually. As a life-long learner, I constantly renew myself as a professional on my quest to provide students with the highest quality of education possible. With my experience and knowledge, I guarantee your learning will be fun and effective. Let's start this exciting and rewarding journey together!
(Please note: I don't travel for lessons unless you live in Madison. )
Teaching philosophy and tutoring style:
I strongly believe learning is maximized when students are highly interested and feel personally connected to the learning materials. I also think lessons should be fun and engaging.
How I personalize learning:
1) Assess and establish an understanding of student's interests, needs, learning style, goals, strengths, and areas in need of improvement. Create a personalized curriculum that focuses on each student’s goals.
2) Incorporate what I have learned from the assessment into lesson planning. Spending two to three hours preparing for an hour lesson, I ensure each lesson is customized to student’s interests, needs, and learning style.
3) When giving assignments, I take two goals into consideration: ensure desired learning outcome is achieved; be able to interest and engage students. My students find my assignments fun and exciting! They sometimes ask for more!
4) I assess my teaching throughout the lessons and find new ways to present material to make sure that students are highly engaged and progressing towards their goals.
As a native Chinese language speaker, I also have a New Jersey issued certification for teaching Chinese language and a Master's in Linguistics with a focus on Second Language Teaching.
Before I moved to the U.S., I was a college teacher who taught Beginning, Intermediate and Advanced Chinese language courses to international students. I had two years of tutoring experience too.
I have solid knowledge of Chinese language, culture, and literature. I published a few essays and poems in local newspapers when I was in school and now I am a popular column blogger who writes about culture differences between China and western countries.
Phenomenal Chinese Tutor — Teacher Xueping has been an instrumental resource in helping me to learn Mandarin Chinese. Together, we have built a curriculum that focuses on my long-term ambitions and she has independently taken much time to prepare lessons which clarify any questions I may have and misunderstandings common among learners.
