I'm a 26 year-old Chinese-American currently living in Tampa, Florida, USA. I graduated with a double major of international Chinese&English education from UCF and Guangzhou University.
I'm a certified teacher in China with a plan to reassess my certificate in America. Personality-wise, I'm very laid back and energetic and always love to make people around me comfortable.
I'd like to teach through fun, relaxed conversations and topics that interest u. Or if u want it to be more systematic, I could actually lead your learning from studying alphabets and very simple grammar if u don't find it boring lol. Give me a call or message me anytime u want! Let's start with your very first Mandarin learning journey!
Language-wise, I was born and raised in China and have been a fluent Chinese speaker for 26 years. And from learning from me, u don't have to worry about the accuracy of pronunciation, the tone and intonation.
I always make sure I give you the most idiomatic presentation of Mandarin. I'm good at dialects and accents too. If students are interested I am able to review this topic.
Pedagogy-wise, I'm a double major of international Chinese and English education and have acquired solid linguistic and pedagogical skills. I'm a certified teacher in China and I'm thinking to reassess my certification in USA. Experience-wise, I have three years of Chinese tutoring experience which make me confident in one-to-one language teaching.
I have 6 years of University study with English language as the major. Relevant courses include: second language acquisition theory, general linguistics, English-speaking countries panorama, British & American literature, C-E translation, pedagogical theory, teacher's professional development, teacher's etiquette. I have always been the number one in the class and was awarded the first prize of the national English competition for college students.
And I have 3 years of tutoring English language in China for Chinese students and businessmen who feel the need to study English for business purposes. I also have 2 years of tutoring English in America for international students who have problems with either approaching daily class assignments or exams.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I graduated from UCF with a master's degree in English education and have noticeable experience in tutoring English to speakers from all over the world. I think you are wise to choose me to help you with your English proficiency.
