About Min

My teaching philosophy - In my opinion, teaching fulfills two functions: One is to impart the necessary knowledge; the other is to facilitate learning. The first function pertains to the content of teaching, meaning that the instructor must examine the relevancy and applicability of the information to be taught about a subject of interest. The second function relates to the means by which the content of teaching is to be properly delivered to the students so that knowledge retention and skill transference can be guaranteed. I believe students learn best when the instructor can organize teaching by stressing both of these functions simultaneously.

My qualification - I have altogether 20+ years of teaching experience in ESL, Chinese as a Foreign Language, and communication on and above undergraduate level. It is my pleasure to see my students' success in mastering a foreign language and the associated communication skills. Knowledgeable about the P's and Q's in both Chinese and English, I will lead my students in an unforgettable journey in exploring their linguistic potential and knowing their capacity.

I won the championship in most of the math competitions during high school.

I am a native speaker of Chinese Mandarin. I can also speaker several Chinese local dialects. My undergraduate major is Teaching Chinese as a Foreign Language. My academic training on the graduate level is partially linguistics (i.e., language practice), and partially communication studies (i.e., interaction with people in different contexts). I am knowledgeable about both cultures, traditional and modern. My hobbies include calligraphy and Kung Fu.

I look forwarding to hearing from you and helping you achieve your success in your studies!
