I love teaching and tutoring. I was a teacher at the college level when I was in China, and I was promoted to Associate Professor in 2010. I had more than 800 students in 11 years' teaching. Many of my students still keep in touch with me years after their graduation. I understand that every student is different and I have developed skills to inspire and educate individual students according to their talents and abilities.
With abundant experiences and enthusiasm, I am sure I can help you learn the Chinese language.

How would you help a student get excited/engaged with a subject that they are struggling in?
Interest is the best teacher to lead to success. As long as he or she is excited or engaged with the subject, that is a great start. I will praise every accomplishment he or she makes, even it is small. That will keep his or her interest constantly, and so he or she will make more and more accomplishments and will have less and less struggling.
What techniques would you use to be sure that a student understands the material?
Questioning and testing are good ways to see whether a student has understood the material or not. The questions and tests should focus on the knowledge points that the student is supposed to understand.
