My lessons are shaped by my education backgrounds and my teaching experiences. The acronym "CAVE" is a good summary of my lessons:

Communication. Communication is the ultimate goal of language. My classes are rooted in a communicative approach, in which you are the center of this learning process. Topics and activities are designed with real communicative goals. In my Chinese classes, you will mostly hear me speaking Chinese unless the use of English is necessary.

Authenticity. One of the first few English phrases I learned from a textbook is: "How are you? I am fine! Thank you! And you?" However, when I moved to the U.S. I realized that no one really talks like that! Here is another anecdote I would like to share. In the first month of moving to the States, I went to Zaxby's with friends. I was super surprised and excited when I saw "chicken fingers" on the menu. I thought it meant "chicken feet" and that people in the States eat them as well. To my disappointment, my order ...

Monica is a wonderful teacher. She is patient and my son loved her from the first day. She has an easygoing demeanor and she makes math fun for him; she also sends a bunch of worksheets for him to work on in between. My son is entering 4th grade and I wanted him to work on some preview math skills before starting schoo. Monica was the perfect person I was looking for to work with him.
