Hey there! I am a small-town American woman who lived in big-city China for four years to teach university English. I graduated summa cum laude with a Bachelor's Degree in Christian Studies. My professors genuinely sought to guide their students into a deeper understanding of not only the subject at hand but also of life. Their dedication to student growth inside and outside of the classroom was reflected in how they passionately taught in class and generously poured time into grading and tutoring outside of class. As a teacher, I seek to emulate their examples.

In university, I volunteered several hours every week to hang out with and tutor international students one-on-one. I promptly moved to China after graduation to teach English as a Foreign Language. I taught Oral English and English Short Stories. I had nine classes a week of 30-50 students each. Despite so many, I assigned graded homework and quizzes to reinforce lesson content and provide extra practice.

Having studied Greek for three years with the Grammar-Translation Method and Mandarin for four years in-country (no formal classes--the Immersive Method), I understand the difficulty of learning a second and third language. The goal of language learning is to communicate. This requires balanced practice in speaking, listening, reading, and writing. My teaching, therefore, primarily focuses on the Communicative Method. Every student has unique needs and a unique way to learn. Thus, I will personalize lessons, topics, and coursework to each individual. Whatever it takes to help you grow!

I have a 120-hour TEFL certification through Bridge Education Group (includes a 40-hour Grammar Advisor certification) and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Christian Studies. I have 2 years of experience tutoring international university students one-on-one, 6 months of experience teaching small groups of elementary students, and four years of experience teaching large classes of Chinese university students. Additionally, I have 8 years of experience teaching ages 5-

History

Bible Studies

Bible Studies

I graduated summa cum laude with a Bachelor's Degree in Christian Studies. The coursework included biblical exegesis and interpretation, biblical application, preaching and teaching, ministry, missions, philosophy, world religions, and three years of biblical Greek. I co-led a small group in youth group for one year, taught Bible studies consistently while abroad for four years, and now co-lead a Sunday School class. I also currently edit my husband's seminary papers and sermons and study his books alongside him.

Great teacher, patient and kind.

She have a good material to practice with. She will focus in your needs and make you practice enough until see you improve. We worked grammar, talked about speaking and review essays. I learn something interesting every time that we meet.
