Ballet

I have taught ballet to children in America, China, and the Middle East. I danced with the Beijing Dance Academy, a summer with Ballet Magnificat!, Dramatic Truth, Greater Dover Dance Academy, Pennsylvania Youth Ballet Company for a summer, and I was privately tutored by the former number three ballerina in China. I have been dancing since the age of 5/6 years old.

Bible Studies

I have been pursuing a degree in Biblical studies for the past three years at an accredited college called Lancaster Bible College. This college has equipped me to become a suitable Bible teacher, who can effectively help potential learners grasp certain theological terms. I am qualified to teach Biblical studies due to my extensive knowledge on the subject and my eagerness to enhance different students' knowledge on Scripture.

Chinese

I have had intense Chinese training for over a decade. I am of Chinese descent and am skilled in both reading and conversational Chinese. I am able to offer your children Chinese language training that delves into the history of China in addition to the reading and speaking portions of Chinese. I have also been in the process of training young children on the Chinese culture and language at a learning center in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.

Cooking

I am a hired cooking instructor with a learning center. I have a background in cooking different cultural foods such as Chinese food. I see myself qualified to teach cooking to all ages because of my experience with cooking great amounts of food to a crowd of people who praised my work.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have worked with children in grades k-6th grade for the past ten years. I previously worked with Sylvan Learning Center, a tutoring center, at a public school by helping first and second graders complete their homework successfully. I have taught kindergartners through sixth graders basic mathematics, English, the Bible, dance movement, and some phonics in China and the Middle East. My two students I tutored in two thousand five will be graduating from high school and have already begun applying to universities.

English

I am qualified to teach your child English because of my academic achievement at an accredited college. My first job was teaching English to two Chinese children in 2005, who are currently in their senior year in high school and beginning their four-year college education at a university in Palm Beach, Florida. The results of my teaching to my former students have helped them advance into specific areas of study, such as a concentration in business management.

ESL/ESOL

I have tutored international students on and off for four years in China.

Flute

I am a floutist who has participated in my college orchestra for a whole school year. I was trained by both an American floutist and a Chinese floutist. My achievements in this area of music has been my position in my orchestra. I played the first part for musical pieces. and I have played the second part for musical pieces. I have been actively playing the flute since early 2003.

Hard Of Hearing

I am hard of hearing myself and know American Sign Language. I have experience in teaching children sign language as well as teaching children how to sign songs in sign language. I have the ability of teaching hard of hearing children how to read lips because I also read lips when I am near the hearing.

Macintosh

I have much experience with working with macintosh software. I own a macintosh computer and have had to repair two macintosh computers on my own. One of the computers was mine and the other was my mom's computer. I am familiar with the macintosh software as I also own an iPod shuffle, iPad2, and the new macbook air computer.

Microsoft Word

I have needed to use microsoft word throughout my high school and college education. I understand how to navigate within microsoft word and adapt to the changes the software automatically undergoes. I have been successful with helping adults and students alike use microsoft word to their best abilities. I am able to easily show users of microsoft word different keyboard tricks, that they may not know, to help them improve the documents they create.

Needlework

I have experience in making doll dresses and have made knitted clothing for friends and family. I used to knit hats in Beijing to sell to individuals who were in need of hats for the winter time. I have much experience in any form of needlework since I was in middle school. I was trained by people trained in needlework.

Proofreading

I have proofread college essays and helped college students get academic praise from their professors because of their well-written essays. There are many authoritative figures in my life who have viewed my writing and stated that I have excellent skills in writing. My success as a writer has helped my peers and younger students look up to me to proofread their papers.

Sign Language

I am hard of hearing and have had experience teaching children American Sign Language. I have been trained in ASL in middle school and have had a desire to help children who are hard of hearing how to of muni care with those who may only know ASL. My desire in teaching ASL is to help children build relationships with their deaf peers.

Study Skills

I have been successful in completing three full years of college. My previous semester in college accumulated to a 4.0 GPA. I am able to train students on studying for their assignments for school. There is a calendar that I am able to provide to students who need help with organization.

Swimming

I have taught swimming lessons with four organizations: two in Austin, Texas and two in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. I have received my water safety instructor's certification from the American Red Cross. I have been able to see my former swim students progress to higher swim levels to the point of being suited to be placed on a competitive swim team.
