I completed my undergraduate degree at Pennsylvania State University. Afterwards, I moved to Beijing, China to teach ESL and I loved it! I spent 2 years teaching and learning there. I have 4+ years of teaching both ESL and Mandarin online and in-person. My hobbies are watching films, traveling, and ballroom dancing!

Teaching Approach

我将首先为您的孩子安排见面课,以便根据其水平安排合适的课程。我自己有一套专用教材,重点放在说、听和读方面,同时还会安排写作和语法练习。如果您对希望孩子关注的内容或使用的教材有自己的偏好也可以。我也为年龄大一些且经验丰富的语言学习者提供雅思(IELTS)培训。
