I come from China, and came to United States at January 2012. I received my master degree in science from University of South Florida, majored in Finance.
When I was in college back in China, I tutored a boy English for two years.He was in fourth grade when I started. His English teacher in school said he had trouble to follow up with what he was teaching. After 2 months, his score went to top 10 of his class. After I came to the States, I helped my friends' children to learn Mandarin during the summer of 2012. They were two 7 and 9 year-old brothers, both American Born Chinese. Their parents wanted them to speak Mandarin. After that summer, the boys can communicate in Mandarin. I enjoyed my tutoring with these children. It makes me feel fulfilling and I find myself can be very patient and effective with my students in language learning. Also my students seems to have a lot of fun in learning, because I used some fun ways instead of just teaching textbook.
Languages are complicated subjects. I like to make different plans for different students, focus on what they are weak in or want to learn most, and use various methods to achieve our goal.
In my spare time, I like reading books, watching movies, running and singing. I used to go to karaoke all the time with my friends when I was in China. (Speaking of Friends, that is my favorite TV series. The six gave me great joy. But most of all, they were always loyal and honest with each other. That's what I learned from them.)
