Chinese

I am originally from China and have been living in US for more than 30 years. I have an EE BS degree and a MS degree. I have worked as an engineer for major US companies for 12 years. I have translated technical and legal documents for some US companies since 2001. I also have been teaching Chinese to Americans since 2001; I used to be a Chinese instructor for Milwaukee School of Engineering and UWM continuing education school. I also substitute for the Chinese classes at St. John's Northwestern Military Academy in Delafield, WI.

My teaching methods:
• Evaluating student’s Chinese language training needs, learning style, and individual goals.
• Developing a curriculum based on student’s needs, incorporating language basic skills in speaking, listening, and reading with Chinese customs and culture to help student to develop or to improve student’s Chinese language competency for either personal interest or business success in today’s global economy.
• Designing courses integrating traditional text with internet clips, literature, films and classroom activities that reinforce vocabulary and grammar. Course content is tailored to accommodate individual’s specific Chinese language training needs to achieve each individual’s goals.
