I have been teaching Chinese over the past four years to a variety of students ranging from kindergarten to College level. Through the National STARTALK program, I have taught at several elementary schools in Utah as well as a high school summer camp on Brigham Young University campus. I have also tutored college age Chinese students through the National Security Education Flagship Program and taught Intermediate Chinese for one semester at Brigham Young University. In addition to teaching Chinese, I have also taught ESL for two years in Taiwan, six months in Nanjing, China, and four months as a one on one tutor to a Korean Hyundai employee in the United States. My teaching style depends on the age group and needs of my students. I always try to make lessons fun and interesting to my students by encouraging participation and including appropriate activities. I am flexible to provide my own lesson plans or to adapt to specific curriculum requested by students or parents. I incorporate a wide variety of tools in my teaching methods and am competent at teaching reading, writing, listening, speaking, and typing skills in the language. I place a high emphasis on implementing technology based supplemental activities such as MP3, power point, voice recording, games etc. I believe it is critical to teach culture in addition to language because the two are inseparable and complimentary to each other; a person can not be effective in a country knowing one and not the other. Therefore, my students will gain deep insights of China that they would not otherwise gain in many classroom settings.
