我是一个语言爱好者。从小热爱学英语的我后来在哥伦比亚大学教育学院获得了英语语言教育的硕士学位，希望结合我的理论知识和实用我对帮助更多的英语学生。从学校毕业后，我还加入了权威的测评机构 ETS （设计和发布托福、GRE 考试的研究机构），担任产品研究员的一职。我从工作中了解到了更多对于语言学习的设计和评估方法。
As an ESL student in China, learning English was one of my favorite things growing up. We had English lessons at school, but my parents were particularly enthusiastic about spending a lot of their own time learning English with me; some tasks were really challenging. Being a learner of English myself has made me an empathetic and effective teacher. I am excited to work with you to reach your goals!
Me as a Teacher
Along the way, I have come to value the following things more and more: to give wait time to the students, to help the students feel proud of their work, to invite them to collaborate and interact, and last but not least, to show curiosity to what each of them says. I look forward to revealing more joyful moments with my students in the English classroom.
My lessons & teaching style
My lessons are very interactive and task-based. It means I won’t be lecturing or asking my students to do drills. We will be completing communication tasks together.
I’ve been using Google Docs and find it very helpful to share and document notes. I also work with any tools that my students readily have access to.
