My experience as a teacher and tutor dates back to 1984 when I taught English as a Second Language in China and later in Taiwan. I earned my Bachelor's degree in International Studies from Rhodes College in Memphis, Tennessee. I have studied Mandarin Chinese from that time to the present day. I presently teach Chinese at McCallie School on a part-time basis. I first began teaching Chinese at the Tennessee Governor's School for International Studies in 1986.
Ten years I decided to return to the classroom to impart my knowledge and enthusiasm for learning about the world to American students. I became the first teacher in Tennessee to obtain certification to teach K-12 Mandarin Chinese. I have a strong background in mathematics, English as well as certifications to teach History and English as a Second Language. I am a patient but demanding teacher who enjoys the challenge of working with children of all ages.
Presently, I teach Mandarin Chinese in a private Chattanooga middle school. I first taught Chinese in 1986 and have been involved in promoting Chinese language study since that time. I have twice traveled to China as a Fulbright scholar for Chinese language teachers. I am knowledgeable, enthusiastic and highly skilled in teaching Chinese as a second language.
I earned a master's in education from UT-Chattanooga in 2004. Among my areas of certification are Foregin Languages-Other, which is a K-12 certification. I have taught elementary school students beginning in China in 1984 and later at Orchard Knob Elementary School (Special Education).
In 1987 I received my MBA degree from Tulane University. This program provided intensive instruction in marketing, both quantitative and creative. I worked in sales and marketing for over 15 years on an international level.
I was first trained on Microsoft Windows in 1986 at the dawn of the PC era. Since then, I have been very active on computers for work and pleasure. I am familiar with setting up Internet networks, printers and computer maintenance.
My first job out of college was as a teacher of English as a Second Language in China some 30 years ago. In the intervening decades, I have obtained two master degrees, most recently in Education with a certification in History. I've taught at the elementary, middle and senior high school level at public and private schools in the Chattanooga area.
