Hello, I’m Carina! I got my BA in English Education in a university in China. And I got my master’s degree in TESOL in University of Southern California. My educational background stimulates me to choose teaching as my career and I’ve enjoyed it so far.

I’ve been teaching ESL to Chinese students for four years in Shanghai University of Finance & Economics Zhejiang College in China. The four-year experience of being a college ESL instructor helps me to develop my own style of teaching and offers me priceless knowledge about how to deal with different students and their needs. My students like my class because my class is organized, well-prepared, creative, fun and informative. I ranked 7/240 in the students evaluations of our university teachers.

Besides, I’ve been tutoring my little cousin Mandarin and Math for two years. After I came to the states, I also worked as a volunteer in teaching people Mandarin. I enjoy spending time with teenagers and adults, with level from beginner to intermediate or advanced. I am fluent in both spoken and written Chinese. I’ve passed the Putonghua Proficiency Test Level 2-A, which is an official test of spoken fluency in Standard Chinese intended for native Chinese speakers. I also have several essays and articles in Chinese being published in province-level newspapers. I am interested in Chinese culture and I have basic knowledge in Chinese landscape painting and calligraphy. No matter you are seeking to learn communicative Chinese or academic Chinese, no matter you are learning Chinese for fun or for examination purpose, I could be a good help.

As a native Chinese speaker, I am struggled in learning English as my second language. I’ve scored 101 in TOEFL and 322 in GRE (verbal: 161, AW: 4.0). However, success does not come easily. As a second language learner myself, I understand the pains and problems students meet. I am looking forward to maximizing students’ potential, stimulating students’ learning interests and creating a safe learning environment for students to speak up their opinions. My class will be based on the language level of individual students. I will design personalized lesson plans for every single student. No matter you are learning Mandarin for daily communication, for business purpose or for your interests in Chinese culture, I’ll adapt to your needs. Welcome!
