About Jimmy

As a native Chinese speaker, I come from Xian, the ancient capital city in China with a history of 3000 years, I majored in English linguistics in Xian International Studies University. I used to be an English speaking tour guide for English speaking tour groups from different countries. I also taught Chinese to students from US and Britain in their study tours to China, so I know their interest in Chinese learning.
I came to US in 2007 and now focus on the culture exchange between China and US. My rich experience in the cultural exchange can help the students know more about China and know why they should learn to speak Chinese and how to improve their Chinese speaking.
My teaching will focus on the basic Chinese learning combined with the Chinese history, culture, art and music which can help the students have the great interest in Chinese learning. I have been traveling to almost every major cities in China and I can tell students a lot of Chinese culture knowledge to help them in their Chinese study.
I like to teach the basic Chinese learning to the students who begin to study Chinese and the students with the ability to speak simple Chinese and wish to improve their Chinese speaking. I speak perfect standard Chinese and can help students have the correct pronunciation and intonation which is very important. In Chinese learning, the very important is to have the correct pronunciation and intonation at the beginning, otherwise it will be very hard for the students to correct the wrong pronunciation and their Chinese will not be easily improved.
I hope to meet the students who like the way I will teach in their Chinese study, it will be not only from the basic Chinese study, such as the pronunciation and intonation, but also the Chinese culture and history study which can help them have the interest in the Chinese study.
