Hakkımda

I am TY! I majored in Education Technologies and am a big fan of using tools to support language learning. As a middle school Chinese teacher, I have adapted many interactive games to enhance Pinyin, vocabs, and word order learning. I am one of the contributors to Duolingo's Mandarin courses and have been tutoring adult Chinese for more than 150 hours covering varieties of topics. The three-month quarantine online teaching experience adds to my confidence of applying edtech tools to facilitation the conversation.

I care about who you are and what you want to bring into our session. I firmly believe in students being my teacher as well. My very early students introduced me to a series of videos about technology in China, and from there I am exploring podcasts with them, which totally changes my life! Can't wait to share these podcasts with you.

I am not sure where I would be when we meet but I feel calm to stay at different places to recognize the diversity of the world. I have lived in China, Russia, Germany, and Ghana, and more exotic places to travel to.

I enjoy exploring this world not only limited to traveling itself, but via books, podcasts, and conversations with people. Communication with others helps me verbalize my thoughts and listen to other opinions, which contribute to my pursuit of personal happiness. Talk philosophy, science, human rights, and more with me! I can always make people laugh (hope it is not because of my weird sense of humor) regardless of the language and culture barrier.

Lessons:
For beginners: I'll type out all the conversation in the Pad
-Interaction: descriping pictures, games

Inter-advance: I'll type out complicated sentences you and I mentioned
-Improv theatre conversation
-Daily conversation
-Tutoring: please bring in any grammar, vocabs, and phrases you recently learned for Q&A/further practice (at least one day in advance)

**!!If you would love me to provide authentic video/podcast resources, please don't hesitate to leave me a message before booking a lesson with me.

Attendence Policy:
I will waiting in the classroom for 15 minutes and will offer you a 50% refund. Feel free to reschedule 12 hours in advance. Appreciate your understanding.
