I am a native Chinese
speaker. I speak Mandarin
and Shanghai Dialect. I majored in English
Linguistics in college and taught English in Fudan University in Shanghai, China. I came to USA 20 years ago. I received an MBA in Finance
, and worked many years in the fields of finance and business
administration in NYC and MD. I left the workforce for several years to become a full time mom for my son. I have teaching experience and am fluent in both Chinese and English. That will make me a great tutor to teach English speaking students Chinese.
I have been teaching my son advanced English grammar
at home. At age of 8, his reading
and math levels are currently at 7th grade level. He has skipped a grade last year and is in the gifted program in the 4th grade
now. It is a very self-satisfactory experience to see my son advance way above his peers and to be so proud of him. My experience being a full-time mom makes me realize that I really enjoy teaching young kids and seeing them advance above their peers or catch up with their peers if they are currently behind.
As for teenagers and adults, I'd like to use the book "Chinese for Beginners: Mastering Conversational Chinese" by Yi Ren. You can get the book on Amazon. As for younger kids, I can start with "Tuttle More Chinese for Kids Flash
Cards Simplified Character Editio" (Tuttle Flash Cards). I can also use the book you recommend, or make up some learning material by myself based on what you are interested in.
2, English Grammar and Math:
I have several good sources of learning material that I've used to teach my son. But you are welcome to recommend any books that you want me to teach you.
I am a great teacher and a loving mom, I am looking forward to teaching you and seeing you advance.
