Introduction

SpeaksEnglish, Chinese, Turkish, Mandarin Chinese

I'm a professional Chinese teacher who has been teaching the language for 8 years. I received my M.A. degree in Chinese language pedagogy at Indiana University Bloomington with full scholarship and taught at the college level for 4 years in the states. I’ve also led a group of high school students from Indiana to Hangzhou, China and taught them at a local high school there in an intensive summer program. Prior to that, I had taught Mandarin to toddlers and young children in Turkey and Australia. Last year, I came back to Taiwan and have been tutoring online since then. I can teach both simplified and traditional Chinese characters and from beginners to advanced learners. I’m also a freelance English tutor who has helped students from school children to adults. When I was at college, I taught phonics and helped my students with their schoolwork. Recently, I've mostly done oral practice with people who plan to take TOEFL or IELTS and have been working with adults mainly to improve their speaking skills. As a certified tester by the American Council on the Teaching of Foreigner Languages, I can assess your oral proficiency in your target language (Chinese/English) in a clear and structured way. So don’t worry if you’re not sure about your current proficiency level. We’ll get a better idea of it and work together towards your goals! In my spare time, I like to cook, bake, swim, watch movies and TV shows on Netflix! 😊 I was inspired to become a teacher to speakers of other languages when I went to Turkey the 2nd time as an exchange student (I've been there 4 times in total). Learning languages and cultures is always one of my favorites! With my experiences living in these different countries, I’d love to share my stories and am eager to learn from you, too! Materials are provided for preview/review and recordings available upon request. Please send me a message to let me know your needs before class. The message must include answers to the following. 1. What's your goal of learning the language? 2. Do you have prior experience learning the target language or other languages? (If yes, for how long and do you know your current proficiency level?) 3. What would you like us to focus in class, for example, vocabulary, grammar, daily conversation, reading, or writing? 4. any other needs Note: 1. Cancellation of class if not notified at least 4 hrs before class cannot be made. Credit of the class will not be returned. 2. To make sure the best quality of class and help you focus in listening comprehension, I will only turn on the audio instead of audio+video for regular classes, unless special needs are requested.
