Ni hao! My name is Shanshan , I was born in Mainland China and finished my bachelor’s degree at Nanjing University of Aeronautics & Astronautics. I have completed my master’s degree at Southeast Missouri State University with an emphasis in Higher Education Administration. My written and spoken Chinese are both excellent. I have owned the first prize in the Chinese Youth Calligraphy Competition and got Grade B of the first class in the Certificate of Putonghua Proficiency Test.
Since I can remember, I have always had aspirations to be a Chinese teacher. I like the idea of passing on my knowledge to a new generation of pupils. English is my second language, in my college years, I used to work in cram School to teach elementary school students the basic level of language, including listening, reading, speaking, and writing and always love to try different ways to help students to learn Chinese. My teaching style is to make the course of study happier and easier. Let’s study and ...

"Joy is a wonderful teacher. I was taking regular ESL classes with other students but I wasn’t improving the way that I wanted. When I met her, she asked me what I want to improve and she focused on that. With her I've been able to practice my English skills in a different way. She works with vocabulary list, grammar exercises, pronunciation and writings. I’ve been studying with her for 8 months. I feel that I’ve expanded a lot my vocabulary. She makes a lot of difference in my life. She is very professional and have the ability to identify your needs. She is flexible and also very friendly. She can definitely help you to develop faster your English skills. Now I’m much more confident with my English."
