About Amy

I am a native Mandarin speaker and familiar with both Simplified and Traditional characters. I have been teaching Mandarin over 15 years. Chinese culture is a main content I use while introducing language to my students. I like to include in my lessons technology for sharing news, playing games, writing assignments, typing and improving speaking skills.

Teaching has always been my passion and interest in my life. I have many Mandarin teaching experiences across Asian and American learners in the classroom and in one on one tutoring. The ages of my students are from middle school to adults. It is always rewarding when I know my students have a breakthrough or achievement in their learning.

There was a 10th grade student struggling with his studies in school. In the beginning of the 4th quarter, he told me if he can do well in Mandarin, the school will let him stay until he finished 12th grade. He said he really wanted to stay, and wished I could help him to learn. He was a C+ student at that time. He came to see me during the academic assistance time at our school a few times a week. By the end of the semester, he earned a B for his second semester, and he was able to stay until he graduated.

I am a certified art teacher with a very strong foundation in visual fine art. I have been teaching drawing for five years. I was also a commercial graphic artist for three years.

I believe a teacher can do a lot to help students to succeed. I apply this philosophy to all of my teaching assignments.
