Me as a Teacher
■5-year Teaching Experience
✔I have been teaching Chinese and English for more than 4 years online and offline since 2017, and I worked as a part-time interpreter at the same time.
✔My students have been from kids to senior citizens, including working professionals such as bankers, lawyers, businesspeople, and international students.
✔Plus, my American host-sister has passed HSK 4 under my long-term instruction, and my host-grandma can even speak some Chengyu(Chinese four-character idioms).
✔Please let me know your goals and I’ll make a teaching plan for you and prepare materials accordingly.
My lessons & teaching style
■Effective and efficient
✔I will prepare classes based on your level and goals.
✔I explain words clearly and provide pinyin & necessary translation.
✔My teaching style varies on the student’s level and need.
✔Basically my classes are interesting due to my appropriate “knowledge jokes”, which can help you understand and absorb the language points easily.
✔For advanced level, I will teach them in an amalgamation way of structure and student-induced autonomy.
✔For intermediate and beginner level, text books will be used with extra expansion in listening and speaking.
✔I offer very detailed class notes , so you could review anytime.

咱就是说老师非常的有耐心哈，我的口语其实不怎么样，但老师从来没有笑话过我啊，他会去慢慢的引导我去说，哪怕说错了也不会过于的计较，他会纠正我，然后教会我新的单词教会我，新的口语教会我怎样正确的发音，非常有耐心啊，然后我会去问他在他那个城市的生活是怎么样的。他也非常的乐于去解答我的疑惑。在我的presentation的那个 part部分，我用我以前没有过的勇气去展现了自己的一个口语，然后跟他讨论了音乐，我的 Junior high school and senior high school，我觉得有这样的一个老师是我的荣幸，I respect him，并且我觉得如果我可以和他继续学习下去的话，我觉得在这个暑假我将得到有力的提升，非常的nice的咱就是说

For my first lesson with Elliot I can say that he made it more easier for me to understand Chinese. He was fun and explained very well everything.

Elliot is an extremely effective teacher!!I have an excellant enjoyable lesson with him.He was very patient as I'm a steady learner and there to help if I forget or mispronounce. I love how he explains the "why" and make things very understandable for the novice learner. His teaching style is engaging with the perfect blend of reading, writing, and speaking practice. I feel like I learn so much with each lesson and am progressing way faster than if I had to try learning on my own. It's clear that he puts a lot of thought in structuring each lesson, and is extremely knowledgeable about not only the English language but also Japanese.I have learnt a great amount so far and look forward to future lessons.
