About Fiona

I graduated from the University of Delaware with a master's degree in food science. I have a strong passion for science as well as for teaching.

As a native Mandarin Chinese speaker, I am passionate to teach anyone who wants to learn the Chinese language. I have taught beginners who had no Chinese background, as well as college students who majored in Chinese. I believe interest is the best teacher, so it is the focus of my class to raise students' interest in learning the language. I also believe patience and encouragement are key factors in teaching.

I have played the violin and the viola for over 20 years and have gained many national competition awards. I was the chief violist in the orchestras in my middle school and in college. I teach violin and viola for beginner and beginner-intermediate level students.

As a master's graduate in science, I have take many math courses, including calculus and linear algebra. I used statistics on a daily basis while in graduate school.

As a native speaker in Mandarin Chinese, I teach anyone who wants to learn the Chinese language, including beginners, intermediate level and advanced level students.

I have had 15 years of experience with English study. I have taken TOEFL iBT and got a score of over 105. My GRE verbal score was at 98% level.

I have passion for science as well as teaching. I have experience teaching both children and seniors. I'd like to know about my students and tailor classes based on their needs.
