About Randall

Hi, my name is Randy. I am high school Chinese and ESL teacher. I have been teaching since 2009. I teach all levels of Chinese, from beginner to advanced. I teach at an International Baccalaureate school. My students have scored as high as a 6 on the SL Chinese examination, which earned them as much as two years college credit in Chinese. I have also taught middle school. I have tutored off and on over the years. I currently tutor high school students in Chinese, though I enjoy tutoring students of any age.

As a teacher -- and as a learner -- I strive to make learning challenging, varied, and personalized. Oh, and learning must also be fun! I want you speak, read, write, and listen to the best of your abilities. I want you to enjoy our sessions. I want to craft activities and assignments that engage and challenge you. I want every session to be different. My goal is to help you succeed -- to help you build and maintain a passion for Chinese that will last for years to come.

Before teaching, I lived and worked in China for IHS, a international research and consulting firm specializing in the electronics supply chain. I worked with Fortune 500 companies like Google, Ford, and Microsoft. I was based in Beijing.

In 2005, I graduated from the University of Wisconsin - Madison with Bachelor of Arts degrees in Chinese and International Studies. In 2009, I graduated from the University of Minnesota with a Master's in Education. I am licensed to teach Chinese and ESL grades K-12. I was born and raised in Lawrence, KS. Go Hawks!

I am well-qualified, fluent speaker of Chinese with considerable work and educational experiences. In addition to being licensed to teach Chinese in grades K-12, I scored Superior on the CPI examination and advanced-low on the HSK. I have taught Chinese since 2009 at the primary and secondary level. I have taught at charter and public schools, including an Chinese immersion school. I am a tenured teacher. I have completed professional development courses for a variety of curriculum and instructional practices, including ACTFL, IB, CBI, and TPRS. My students have scored as high as a 6 on the SL Chinese examination, which earned them as much as two years college credit in Chinese. I have tutored off and on over the years. I currently tutor high school students in Chinese, though I enjoy tutoring students of any age.

I am licensed to teach ESL in grades K-12. I have over four years of ESL teaching experience. I have taught middle and high school ESL. I have completed professional development courses for a variety of curriculum and instructional practices, including WIDA.

As a teacher -- and as a learner -- I strive to make learning challenging, varied, and personalized. Oh, and learning must also be fun!
