As a language learner myself, I apply the tactics and philosophy that I thought to be useful in my personal learning experience. My main focus of teaching is to help students set up proper goals and achieve them step by step. My specialty would be bilingual language education (Chinese and English ) and academic writing(including all the subjects in TOEFL and GRE analytical writing).
I am confident that I am an exceptional teacher that focuses on students' language progress and achievement. I encourage all my students to use the language they are learning as much as possible.
Learning a language is fun, and it is always motivated by the achievement that students can witness. As a result, I will make my best efforts to help my students set observable goals in language learning and make sure they make progress step by step.

Different from most of the language teachers, I would also attach much importance, if not more, to the native language of learners. Making proper use of learners' native language is the most efficient way to communicate in some cases and hence scaffold and facilitate their foreign/second language learning, especially for beginners and low-intermediate learners.
Also, I employ a communicative approach in which I would facilitate my students to interact and practice as much as they need.
