About me

I have been working as a part-time English teacher for two years. The main job is to teach English to Chinese students with primary and intermediate English proficiency. Obviously, my Chinese is very good (absolutely better than Obama) because I like writing , I have written a lot of poetry. So I hope I can bring out my keen sense of my mother tongue and help a lot of people who want to learn Chinese.

Of course, you can't expect my English to be better than Obama's. However, my English might be about the same as Trump's. So, I am confident that I can be a great Chinese teacher.

Qualifications & Experience

I have got a bachelor degree in fine art. I have two years of experience of teaching English.

Teaching Approach

I will give a personalized teaching plan according to the language level and personal characteristics of different students .

1. I will first check the students' mastery of the basic concepts of Chinese characters and Chinese Pinyin. I will arrange the appropriate course as needed. For example, Pinyin learning, because this is very important for pronunciation, if students master Pinyin, they will get twice the result with half the effort in subsequent learning.

2. For students who have already mastered Chinese Pinyin, I will try my best to let them know the essential differences between Chinese and English (if the students' native language is English or similar to English), so that students can adopt the correct learning method suitable for Chinese. Because Chinese and English have a system that is very different in nature from the very origin. The former is ideographic language, so writing and shape are very important, while the latter is phonetic language. However, many students will use a learning method of their native language to learn a foreign language, which will be unavoidably inefficient.

3. For students who have already had good Chinese proficiency, I will try my best to teach them to use authentic Chinese expressions, and to encourage them to express more freely.

4. Regardless of the stage of the students, I will try to integrate Chinese local culture and history into the classes. On the one hand, it will help to bring more fun to the learning process. On the other hand, it will also enable students to understand the cultural phenomenons behind the language thus to increase students' interest in learning.

About me

我已经从事了两年的兼职英语老师的工作,主要工作是教具有初级和中级英语水平的中国学生英语。当然,我的汉语是非常好的(绝对比奥巴马好)因为我喜欢写作,喜欢诗歌,自己也创作了很多诗歌。如果有机会我会和你一起讨论诗歌并分享我写的诗歌。所以我希望我能把自己对母语的敏锐的感知发挥出来,去帮助很多想学习汉语的人们。当然,你不能指望我的英语也能比奥巴马好,不过我的英语也许和特朗普差不多。所以,我有信心可以成为一个很棒的汉语老师。诗人北岛说:“中文是我唯一的行李”,而对于我,中文可能是一只船,无论飘到哪儿,那儿就是栖息之地。

Qualifications & Experience

取得大学本科艺术专业学士学位。两年的兼职英语老师工作经验,主要工作是教具有初级和中级英语水平的中国学生英语。

Teaching Approach

我会根据不同学生的汉语水平和学生的个人特点给予个性化的教学计划。

1,我会先检查学生们对于汉字,汉语拼音等基本概念的掌握程度。根据需要,我会安排合适的课程。比如拼音学习,因为这对于发音很关键,如果学生掌握好拼音,在后续的学习中就会事半功倍。

2,对于已经掌握了汉语拼音的学生,我会尽量从汉语和英语(如果对方的母语是英语或者类似于英语的拼音文字)的本质区别入手,让学生采用正确的适合汉语的学习方法。因为汉语和英语从历史发源上就有着本质上很不相同的体系,前者表意,所以书写,形状非常重要,而后者表音,发音是关键。但是很多学生会惯性地采用学习母语的方式去学习外语,这样就会事倍功半。

3,对于汉语能力已经较好的学生,我会尽量从地道的表达方式出发,去让学生的表达能力更为地道,更为流畅,鼓励学生更加大胆地表达。

4,不论对于什么阶段的学生,我都会尽量将中国的本地文化,历史等内容融入到课堂中,一方面有助于增加学习的趣味性,另一方便也能让学生体会到语言背后的文化现象,以增加学生学习的兴趣。
