I obtained my Chinese Teaching Certificate in 2003. Before this, I had taught 10 years of English as a foreign language in high school and universities. In 2002, I obtained the certificate of ESL Benchmark Assessor, then worked as an ESL English Assessor for 5 years while teaching Chinese in a heritage language school and a university.
I became fully involved to Chinese teaching when I tutored students, also taught in Foreign Service Institutes, and universities, as well as in heritage language school. My students are aged from 4 to 75. There are kindergarten children, school-age students, university students, diplomats, ambassadors, military soldier/officers, government officers, matured people and retired people.
I design specific curriculum and syllabus for different language purposes on political, commercial, cultural, historical needs.
I am very good at using technology into my teaching method, such as to mix online teaching with traditional ways of teaching so as to seek optimal teaching result.
To ensure the targeted language levels, I obtained the Chinese Language Tester certificate in 2008. Then periodically administer check ups and testings by myself to get students' proficiency reports. I have students who can speak like native Chinese in 2.5 years. They are able to use idiomatic expressions to discuss complex abstract topics and support hypothesis. I also have students who are traveling constantly in the world for business and yet consistently have their Chinese class online for years.
I can adjust my teaching materials and methods to fit your language needs. I am looking forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve your goals.
