➤ My Background
I grew up in New Taipei City, Taiwan. I also spent four years in Kaohsiung for my study in university.
Despite my college major being medical imaging and radiological sciences, and I started out teaching English, I ended up spending my last year in the university taking a Mandarin teaching program on the side. For me, teaching Chinese is something I enjoy doing more.
I've been living in different countries since I graduated. One of the reasons I love about my job is that giving lessons remotely has allowed me to travel.
I've lived in Mexico, Canada, and the U.S. for the last few years. I enjoy traveling around. Currently I'm traveling in Europe, and I teach in US time zones.
➤ Teaching Experience
I have been teaching Mandarin for over 4 years now.
From 2017 to 2019, I taught Mandarin in a private school in Mexico.
From 2019, I started to teach Chinese lessons online on italki and have taught more than 5000 lessons there since.
From 2021, I built and started to teach on my own booking site as well.
Along the way, I started to create Chinese learning content on Youtube, Instagram, and this website for beginners and intermediate learners using stories and comprehensible input. As a language learner myself, I relate to the struggle and challenges of learning a foreign language, and I'm happy to be able to create content to help.
➤ Our 1-on-1 Lessons
In our lessons, what we can work on is different for each student, based on your level, preference and goals. We can work out a plan for you during the first lesson.
I speak rather fluent English, so we will be able to communicate clearly during lessons. I also speak some Taiwanese and some Spanish. My lessons can be fully in Chinese as well, depending on your preference and level.
Learning materials that my students often find helpful, to name a few: simply conversation practice, storybooks such as graded reader, Integrated Chinese, HSK 4 textbook, YouTube videos, Chinese discussion platforms , etc..
There are a variety of tools and resources that I can share with you as well.
