7 years as a middle school Chinese teacher, 10+ years as a private piano teacher, 3 years as a Chinese tutor
Through inter-school collaboration, outreach, interactive learning activities, and accommodating different learning styles, I am able to greatly engage students to learn Chinese. Many students signed up for my class because they had heard how much fun they could have while learning Chinese! I build up students’ confidence, continually offer encouragement, and show them that they CAN do it. I treat students with respect, and in return, they show appreciation for all I do for them.

As a Chinese teacher, it is my responsibility to spark students interests in Chinese and build their confidence along the way. The limited Chinese resources I had pushed me to be creative with my lesson planning and teaching. Many interesting projects and activities were the key to my success as a Chinese teacher.
