Teaching since:

There are three primary factors which make my English or Chinese lessons unique:

Firstly, I have almost ten years experience teaching ESL, cross-cultural communication skills, and critical thinking skills at all age and proficiency levels, at both private schools and universities.

Secondly, as someone who has learned a second language (Chinese) in a foreign country from the beginner to the advanced level, I understand the struggles and mental processes second language learners experience. Learning a language is not just about studying new words and grammar or having perfect pronunciation, but is also about learning a new kind of culture, because they are interrelated.

And, thirdly, my foundational education was in social science, which included linguistics, from the University of California, Davis. I am also currently a graduate student working on a masters degree in education and teaching credential for the State of California.

I have done a background check with the State of California.
