I have been teaching Chinese (and Japanese) for 16 years. I have taught in schools, in summer programs, online, to children and adults. I love teaching, and believe that we learn a language by using the language. The more time you spend speaking, the better your Chinese will be. I have built up a large collection of resources, all to help you learn Chinese. I am also an educational technologist, so I make the most of all the great tools available, from Google to Twitter to Pleco.

Personally, I love music ( great tool for language learning) and reading and riding my bicycle. I also make ceramic tiles.
