I have 30+ years of experience teaching. I use speech, song, listening comprehension, writing in order to let students learn Chinese in a joyful way. My students and I enjoy our time and will work together to learn. My students care for each other and help each other throughout class. With a good attitude towards learning, my students learn and progress quickly. “
I had the Master of Fine Art degree from Rochester Institute of Technology, Rochester, NY. I used to work as an Interior and Graphic Designer over 15 years. After I had two lovely kids, then I start to be an Art Instructor of Georgia Perimeter College, Art Teacher of Atlanta Contemporary Chinese Academy and Art Teacher of Arts & Crafts Class / Chinese Culture School for the past 10 years. Recently, I will teach A2 Chinese class of CCS. I use song, story, creative drawing and game to teach Chinese. All students will have fun to learn. Also parents will fully participate with all class activities and home works. It will keep students consistency learning Chinese not only in school but also at home.

I am a native Mandarin speaker from Taipei, Taiwan and a mom of 3 kids, ages 10, 7 and 3. I majored in Social Work from Fu-Jen Catholic University in Taiwan and mastered in Media Arts at Emerson College in Boston, Massachusetts. My family publishing company background had trained me to speak and write Chinese precisely. I believed that a mother is the first teacher of her children so I’ve read different education theories. I also believed that different kids need different learning methods.
I’ve taught my kids to read Chinese since they were born and they ALL love it. I would love to share my enthusiasm of learning Mandarin with young kids or beginners through various activities such as rhymes, kids’ songs and hands on activities. Homeschooling my children has taught me a lot in terms of keeping their interests, increasing their attention span, and honing their handwriting.
If you are interested in letting your kids learning Chinese, please come try our Chinese phonic class. This phonic system has been proven to promote better recognition and pronunciation. These letters were inspired from the Chinese characters, so students will feel familiar as they learn to read Chinese characters. In this perspective, writing Chinese will be like playing puzzle instead of drawing non-sense.
Chinese is one of the most difficult languages in the world. Tradition Chinese reserve the most beautiful and meaning parts of this language. If you’ve decided to go for it, why not get the solid foundation from the beginning?
Growing up in a Christian family, I value each kid as a wonderful creation from God. I really appreciate that God has given me this opportunity to come along side your child to help them learn Chinese.

Teaching is my passion. I am currently teaching Chinese every Saturday and Sunday. As for rest of the week, I work as a medical interpreter. I teach all levels from basic pinyin to advance Chinese. I have been teaching from 2005 and witnessed my students growing up from a child to an adult, going to college and into the real world. Seeing how my students progressed to a future leader in the society, makes me certain that this is where I belong. I am proud of my students and work with them to push their limits. Lastly, I love DOGS!
