    Teaching Approach

    After teaching English to elementary, middle school, high school and adult students in one-on-one classes, I have found that this style of learning a second language is best. We can practice basic Chinese conversation, using simple sentence patterns and vocabulary. I will provide engaging class materials that cater to each student's level and interests.

    Program Description

    After studying the four skills of Mandarin Chinese for three years and living in Taiwan for six, I have a keen insight to learning Chinese language and culture. Although native English speakers encounter certain grammar and pronunciation issues, reading and writing Chinese characters are equally challenging; through learning simple dialog, reading short sentences and writing common characters, these challenges can be overcome.

    Teaching Experience

    I taught English overseas at the YMCA in Taiwan for six years and with the Peace Corps in Morocco for one year.

    Teacher Training

    credit earned toward English-as-a- Second-Languag e certification (the University of Wisconsin-Mil waukee)

    B.A . in Anthropology (the American University, Washington, DC)
