A continual thirst for knowledge and enthusiasm for foreign language, led me to obtain proficiency in Chinese Mandarin while serving as a linguist in the United States Army. My desire to impart my knowledge and love of learning led me to become a language tutor both in and outside of the military to help learners reach their educational goals. My experience in teaching Chinese Mandarin has widened my range of teaching methods in order to create a learning environment that is tailored to each student, providing an optimal learning experience.
I plan for many engaging opportunities for students to ensure they are stimulated and interested in what is being taught. I have gained skills in building effective relationships with students from various backgrounds which aids in the success of the learning process. During each teaching session, I strongly encourage students to express their ideas and suggestions as I believe it is important for the student to gain a have control of their learning.
