Chinese

I was born in Shanghai, China. I also graduated from one of the best universities in China, which is Fudan University. Currently I am working as a hardware engineer in Portland, OR. So I can speak fluently in both English and Chinese. Besides, I can also speak Shanghai dialect in case anyone is interested. I started to tutor Chinese for international students at Fudan University since I was a sophomore students. My methods to teach Chinese is to make the students be interested in Chinese culture, history and other parts of Chinese-related topics first and then create a Chinese friendly environment during my sessions. So they will learn the language as well as the Chinese culture. Occasionally, I can watch Chinese movies or talk shows with them. My class will be customized to each student according to their level, needs and interests. My sessions could be test-oriented if student has needs like Chinese AP tests as well as casual daily language pick-up for those who are preparing to travel in China. All in all, I will make sure my lessons make learning fun and effective.
