About Sally

I came from Hong Kong and got my master's degree in Library Science from Rutgers University. After working in the library field for 10 years, I switched to teaching in Chinese school part-time after my daughter was born. The teaching job let me explore my creativity using my knowledge of Chinese language. I love spending time creating activities for my class. I end up taking the initiative to rewrite all the textbooks for the school in order to meet the needs of the students here in the U.S.

I have been teaching Cantonese to students from kindergarten up to 6th grade in Chinese school for 12 years. I also speak fluent Mandarin and am teaching 9th grade students to prep for SAT Chinese subject test. I did private tutoring in Mandarin and taught the summer Mandarin Immersion program in Princeton Day School . I am the Head Teacher of a local Chinese school in NJ, designing both Chinese-track and CSL-track's textbooks. It includes a whole set of 12 textbooks to meet the needs of students in the U.S. I regularly submit articles to our school's online journal in Chinese with English translation.

I diagnose my students' strengths and weaknesses in order to design activities and exercises to help them master the language and enjoy the lessons. Reluctant students are motivated by fun activities to gain confidence first. Feel free to contact me for questions.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

ACT English

I have prepped my daughter on ACT English test and am very familiar of all the grammar rules and rhetorical questions used in the test. I am good at labeling the grammar topics tested in each question so that the students can focus on drilling the weak areas to boost the score.

Chinese

I am currently teaching Mandarin in Chinese school in Central NJ. I teach both heritage and CSL (Chinese as Second Language) students. I use pinyin system and am fluent in both traditional and simplified characters. I am also familiar with SAT Chinese subject test prep. My students include elementary, middle and high school students and adults.

Besides Mandarin, I can also speak Cantonese fluently and have 10+ years in teaching.
