Hello students and parents! Ni Hao. Tutoring students in Mandarin and English (ESL) is my speciality and I love helping students to succeed in foreign language studies. I have been teaching Mandarin in the U.S. for over 8 years and English for over 20 years in the U.S. and China. Many people believe that learning both of these languages is extremely difficult, but I believe learning them can be engaging and fun. In order to enhance the student experience I include songs, rhymes, and other creative ways to assist students in learning languages.
A little bit about myself in 2003, I moved to mainland China to study the language and culture of China. I spent over five years living and working at Missouri State University teaching marketing, finance and ESL and studied Mandarin at Liaoning Normal University. Upon returning to the U.S., I worked for Bryant University's U.S. China Institute developing programs for business and setting up and teaching classes and after school programs in Mandarin for K-12 students. I have taught served as a guest speaker to Smithfield Public Schools, government and international corporation regarding the study of Mandarin languages as a non native speaker. In addition, I worked as a translator for guests to the Beijing Olympic and World Expo in Shanghai. Currently, I am is a private tutor for K-12 students and adult who want to learn or improve their language skills both face to face and/or online. Also I am currently the after school Mandarin teacher for Rockford Community Classroom in Rockford, MI.
In addition to my passion for teaching Mandarin and English, I have enjoyed traveling and living around the globe. I have been blessed to have traveled through out China having visited all the the provinces in Mainland China and most of the countries within southeast Asia. Besides living in China I have also lived in Germany, Russia and Costa Rica. I feel that my international experiences makes me a better teacher, as I am able to connect with student from different cultures, areas, and living environments. My goals for tutoring are to help students to have a positive learning experience with Mandarin or English.
