I have instructed Vietnamese language and culture to Americans for 6 years after my arriving in The United States in 2008. I always consider teaching foreign languages is not only a career but an art of inspiration. My expertise is how to conduct and train students to pronounce, speak, read, write and understand Vietnamese language and culture accurately. All of my students reached their goals after 26, 32 or 44 weeks of learning Vietnamese. I received good feedback form them too.

"Grace is fantastic. She speaks very clearly and works with you on each lesson at a very manageable pace. She is good at praising when you get things like pronunciation or tones correct, which is really helpful because they are difficult. She is also not afraid to stop you and have you repeat something if you botch it. I really enjoy my lessons."
