Bio

I have spent the past 10 years teaching English to elementary and middle school students abroad. I recently returned to the US when I finished my MA in Anthropology, and am now beginning a second MS in Counseling. I have experience teaching low to advanced English (including SAT writing, TOEFL, and IELTS), low to intermediate Spanish and Chinese, as well as sociology/anthropology, social studies, history, and counseling/psychology. Like any good teacher, I enjoy the process of sharing in...

I have spent the past 10 years teaching English to elementary and middle school students abroad. I recently returned to the US when I finished my MA in Anthropology, and am now beginning a second MS in Counseling. I have experience teaching low to advanced English (including SAT writing, TOEFL, and IELTS), low to intermediate Spanish and Chinese, as well as sociology/anthropology, social studies, history, and counseling/psychology.

Like any good teacher, I enjoy the process of sharing information with others and guiding students towards better understanding. As a life long learner myself, I have an abundance of enthusiasm for learning and strive to make my classes fun, engaging, and most importantly, applicable. If you're stuck and need a nudge in the right direction, or if you're taking a class out of necessity but wish you weren't, I can help!

I have an MA in Anthropology, from National Chinan University and spent much of my time at school leading discussion groups on our graduate level materials. My focus was on Cultural/Social anthropology, though I also took some classes in sociology.

If you're looking to better your job prospects or looking to give your child the upper hand, Chinese is the language to learn- Chinese speakers have already surpassed English speakers worldwide (1.48 Billion to 848 Million) and that number is only set to increase. Although Chinese is a difficult language to learn, I have collected a number of tips and tricks from my decade of Chinese learning that will make this both a fun and enlightening experience!

I tested at the high level 3 on the TOCFL test (HSK Level 4, Euro Standard B2) held by the Taiwanese government before I completed a MA in Anthropology where Chinese was the language of instruction. My estimated ability now is TOCFL high 4 (HSK Level 5, Euro Standard C2). Over the 7 years I lived in Taiwan, I tutored many adults in Chinese language from low to intermediate level. I can teach the Standard Beijing Accent as well as Standard Taiwanese Accent (both speak Mandarin Chinese).

I have 10 years of English teaching experience, and have helped hundreds of students increase their grade point averages. I posses a TEFL certificate that is accredited by the Thai Ministry of Education, and have ample experience in level assessments, grammar workshops, and intensive writing seminars.

Because I just returned to the US after a decade abroad, my schedule is relatively open at the moment, so if you need short term help on essays or papers and have an immediate deadline, feel free to get in touch and I'll try to help as quickly as possible. If you're looking for long term help on bettering grades across the level or are interested in picking up a new area of expertise, now is a great time to get locked into my schedule for longer term instruction.

I have a Masters in Cultural/Social Anthropology from National Chinan University. My thesis focused on social programs and Animal Assisted Therapy, looking at a nationally recognized AAT organization that provided services to hospitals, nursing homes, schools, and centers for the disabled across Taiwan (ROC), and ultimately provided an analysis of programs and their integration into the social/community consciousness.
