I am Chia-Ling and I will do my best to offer Chinese/ESL (English as a Second Language) tutoring for you. I am certified in Chinese and ESL K-12 in New York State and California. I am a native Mandarin speaker and excellent at both traditional and simplified Chinese. I graduated from New York University with a Master's degree in TESOL and Chinese and have been teaching Chinese and ESL classes since then.
For Chinese, I taught the students from kindergarten to high school. I believe that in order to learn a language I must develop students’ cultural awareness and sensibility towards language and establish students’ skills in listening, speaking, reading and writing. Moreover, I used music, visual aids and hands-on activities to motivate students and increase their interests in learning Chinese.
For ESL, I have been working with 15-25 high school students for each class for over three years. My specialty is use real life experiences and students' prior knowledge to improve their English ability, and I also cooperate teaching and support content area teachers to assist English Language Learners to comprehend the content and pass NY State Regents Exams.
I am looking forward to meeting you and assisting you in either Chinese or ESL. I am sure I will be your wise choice.
