Chinese

I am a native Chinese with rich language teaching and tutoring experience. I have Master?s degree in Teaching English (TESOL) from Leeds University and a Bachelor degree in Education from Bradford University in England. I have also earned the equivalent of an AA degree in Chemistry Education in China. I have nearly ten years of professional language teaching experience in the middle school and college levels in China. I moved to America in September, 2009. Currently, I am teaching Chinese to groups of adult Americans in the San Diego Chinese Academy in La Jolla, part time. I am also actively progressing toward my California teaching credential. So far, I have taken the CSET (Mandarin) and I am going to take CBEST next month and actively involved in becoming credentialed in California. I cherish my teaching career and have never stopped learning and growing academically and professionally. I have a passion about teaching, a diligent work ethic, and a deep commitment to my students. I am now a member of Chinese Language Teacher Association-Southern California, and actively seek out various teaching workshops and conferences with an aim to advance my teaching skills and bring innovative ideas into my teaching career.
