Passionate and caring educator who has 7-year tutoring experience. Tutored students from Korea, Japan, Holland, France and America while studying at Beijing Language and Culture University. Taught at a blue ribbon Elementary school children Mandarin for a year and was so popular that was asked to stay for two more years. Taught freshmen and sophomore Mandarin while at Carthage College and helped one student win JET and CLIS program opportunity, another student win a second prize at a Mandarin speech contest in Madison. Now teaching at a Mandarin Immersion Preschool in Minnetonka.
I believe in experiential learning and self-motivation. Thus I individualize each student's learning plan and make learning a fun experience so that the student is motived to learn and explore more. Language should be acquired in an immersion environment, especially for young children. Hope I can help more children realize how much potential they have once they are pushed a little to be self-motived.
