About Vivon

I worked as a private education consultant and a private teacher for over five years in Shanghai, China. I specialized in teaching writing, reading, presentation, research, and analytical thinking skills to Chinese students who planned to study abroad. I have worked as a Chinese teacher in a Baltimore City middle school. I am also finishing my Master of Education Studies, and I am constantly keeping up with the latest research in education.

It is important for me to develop a good relationship with the students I work with. I want my students to communicate with me throughout the learning process, not just sit there and listen. Academic coaching and tutoring has really allowed me to see my hard work materialized. Nothing gives more joy than seeing my students reach their academic goals.

I have a B.A in Chinese. I lived and worked in China for five years and two years in Singapore. I also have experience teaching Chinese in a public school setting. I speak Mandarin Chinese, Cantonese, and Vietnamese fluently, and conversationally in Japanese. As a person who studies languages as a hobby, I have learned and developed a variety of methods to help all types of learners learn and enjoy learning new languages.

I also taught English privately in China for over five years. I have worked with toddlers, elementary, middles, and highs school students. I also taught business English to executives working in Multinational Corporations in China. I used a variety of platforms to teach English. I like to integrate technology, multimedia, and games into the lessons to help immerse my students into the language. Learning a new language is hard, but it does not have to be boring. I will design a personalized ESL curriculum based on the student's learning goals, needs, interests, and schedule.

As an education consultant/academic coach, I work with students to figure out their learning styles, and help them develop a academic routine that work best for them. Students often struggle in certain subjects because they have yet to develop the learning and study methods that work best for them. Once students understand their learning style and develop a routine, they can be successful in any subject. My goal is for my students to become independent learners, and 100% of my student improved at least one letter grade in a month.

Learning should be fun, not a chore! I don't just teach you a subject, but will work with you to plan and reach your learning goals. I will work with you to discover a way to learn that is best for you, not what I think is best.
