About Yan

Language teaching is a craft; it is mastered only after years of experience with a variety of different students, in a variety of different settings, using a variety of different techniques, methods and technologies. My students range from children to adults: I'm an ESL/Chinese teaching assistant at University of Virginia (UVa), and I also teach children Chinese at Charlottesville Chinese School. With a Master's degree in linguistics and a TESOL certificate, I can provide you with not only the professional knowledge about language, but also varied teaching experience. Besides, I myself am a language fanatic. I can speak four languages, including Chinese, English, French, and Tibetan, and I'm always on my way of conquering new languages. Learning another language is truly learning another world. Even though it is time-consuming and sometimes frustrating, as long as you persistently learn it, you'll get more than expected. Trust me!

Native speaker of Mandarin Chinese; Varied Chinese teaching experience; Master's degree in linguistics.

TESOL certificate; Bachelor and Master's education in ESL; Years of ESL teaching assistant experience at University.

Good teachers are primarily good listeners, able to sense an individual’s strengths and weaknesses, enthusiasms and insecurities, realistic goals and wonderfully ambitious dreams. Instead of using a one-size-fits all, mass-market curriculum, I love to customize each lesson based on individual's level, learning style, needs and goals. Language learning is always a personal business. Contact me and let's talk about how can we "together" make you better!
