I grew up in America and China speaking Chinese with my parents and is how I'm fluent in conversation in Mandarin. My writing and reading is not nearly as good as a native, which is why I don't choose to teach advanced. I've perfected the art of self-ambition in language learning, as documented in a book that I have published. Within two years of Pepperdine University pursuing an Engineering Degree I have became proficient in German, French, and Russian while only taking one elementary French class. Not only do I teach the skills for language mastery, I also teach conversational skills to get you ahead of others.

About Edward L.

*currently teaching only up to September 14*
Engineering Major and have lived in three continents.

I grew up speaking Mandarin and English, and my grandparents spoke Russian with me when I lived in China as a child. I grew up to be a strong language learner, being able to converse in about 8 languages.

I have lived a year in Switzerland learning French, and self taught myself German prior to that.

Lessons are taught to have students understand their true capability to learn on their own, and only need teachers for conversational practice and questions.

With the COVID-19 going around, only online classes will take place. Nevertheless, it is probably the best time to learn a language right now!

Experience

Lifeguard Instructor
Jul 2018 - Present

Watch The Pool

As someone who enjoys teaching, I decided to fill up my weekend with this job by preparing the future generations of lifeguards to be well trained. Lifeguarding is something I'm really good at and interested in because of my history as a water polo player and swimmer. Giving constant demonstrations and public speaking as really increased my leadership and speaking skills.
