About Mei-June

Teaching Style: I believe that teaching a language is not only to meet students' academic needs but also to coach them to become independent learners with self-learning skills. I specialize in teaching pronunciation/speaking, pinyin typing, character recognition, listening, writing, and test preparations. I am proficient at integrating technology and web 2.0 tools to enhance learning efficiency. I provide the appropriate tool/material with practical methods to coach students step by step to gain ability, confidence and motivation for lifetime learning. Most students described my lessons to be fun, efficient, and useful.

Background: My undergraduate study was Foreign Languages and Literature; my graduate degree is MBA. These two backgrounds have brought together for me to continuously research and develop the most efficient Chinese language teaching/learning methodology. I have 20+ years of teaching in the secondary and post-secondary schools as well as private tutoring for children and adults. Before I immigrated to the United States in 1999, I was the second language an instructor at the International Trade Department, Taipei Chengshih University of Science and Technology in Taiwan.

Experience: I worked as a contractor as a Linguistic Instructor for Government employees/agencies, such as DOD (>500 hrs), FSI (>400 hrs). I provided consultation to other linguist instructors: curriculum, textbook, methodology. I taught 8th grade Chinese classes in a weekend Chinese heritage school. I continue to provide training for Chinese teachers teaching skills and technology integration. I had helped business information translation and interpretation when I worked at Bloomberg, NJ, and cooperated with translation group to develop new Chinese Bloomberg financial information platform.

Services: I can assist: homework help, test reinforcement, stroke order practice, online dictionary usage, typing skills, pinyin chart, culture understanding, conversation, Chinese AP and SAT, self-learning ability, college exam/project preparation, kids' story time/Chinese immersion activities. I help students set up Chinese typing for their computers.

*Besides teaching, I provide translation and oral business/medical interpretation services.

My undergraduate study was Foreign Languages and Literature, also I have a MBA degree. These two backgrounds have brought together for me to continuously research and develop the most efficient Chinese language teaching/learning methodology. I have 20+ years teaching in the secondary and post secondary schools as well as private tutoring for children and adults. I specializes in teaching pronunciation/speaking, pinyin typing, character recognition, listening and writing, and test preparations. I am proficient at integrating technology and web 2.0 tools to enhance learning efficiency.

Currently, I work as an independent Chinese instructor associate with a multi language company to mostly teach government employees. In past few years I taught 8th grade Chinese classes in a weekend Chinese heritage school. I was invited to instruct/speak in seminars to demonstrate for some Chinese teachers how to integrate technology to teach Chinese. Before I immigrated to the United States in 1999, I was the second language instructor at the international trade department in a community college in Taiwan. Moreover, I had helped business information translation and interpretation when I worked at Bloomberg, NJ, and cooperated with translation group to develop new Chinese Bloomberg financial information platform.
