Hello, I am really excited to become a tutor at Varsity Tutors. Currently, I am retired from a career in accounting. I have a master degree in accounting from University of Texas (Arlington), a master degree in education from Harvard University and a Bachelor degree in Psychology from National Taiwan University. I was born and raised in Taiwan but have lived in the U.S. for almost 34 years.
I have worked professionally for 26 years. I started at an entry level job and held a senior management position when I retired. I have experiences in full ranges of accounting functions and business operation. Among all those experiences I appreciate the most is the opportunities to coach and mentor my staff. This led me to pursue a teaching position at a community college where I taught financial accounting for a semester. Even though I was working full-time at the time, I thoroughly enjoyed it and found it very fulfilling.
I also have taught at Chinese school when my children were young. Teaching my American born children Chinese also provided me with special understandings on learning Chinese as a foreigner. (Yes, I consider my children foreigners.) I believe language and culture are inseparable. While I am teaching Chinese language, I will also introduce Chinese people and culture to enhance the learning experience.
I believe the best learning approach should be based on individual and customized to his/her needs. In addition to the accounting degree, I believe my education background in Psychology and Education have further prepared me to achieve this goal. So let's get started and work together to achieve your goals.

Q & A

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

I would try to find out the student's learning style. Then I would suggest a detail learning method to help the students. For example, using note cards for students who have difficulties summarizing the key concepts.

What is your teaching philosophy?

I believe the best learning approach should be based on the individual and customized to his/her needs.

What might you do in a typical first session with a student?

1. Listen to the students on his/her problems or challenges. 2. Go over the materials, if they are available. 3. Discuss an initial tutoring plan with the students including target goals.

How would you help a student stay motivated?

Motivation is about positive feedback. This can vary greatly by individual. I believe the key is to set achievable target goals.
