ExperienceI am a certified Math 6-12, ESL supplemental and EC-12 LOTE Chinese language teacher in the State of Texas. I have taught Algebra 1 and PreAP Geometry in a SBISD high school. In addition to my public school teaching and private tutoring, I have years of experiences teaching beginner and intermediate Chinese to Adults and young children in a heritage Chinese school in West Houston area. I am also a group and private piano teacher specialized in teaching beginners using Mayron Cole's Piano Method for 10+ years in my home studio. I have more than 20+ years of experience serving as a vocalist and pianist at my home church. My gift and passion to teach enables me to set example for lifelong learning. I graduated with honor as a cum laude from Cal Poly Pomona majoring in Computer Science with minor in Math. I also received high honor and award with my M.A. degree in Christian Education from DTS.
Believing that each student is unique, I enjoy getting to know my students in order to assess their strengths as well as areas for improvement. My background and experiences in ESL also enhances me to relate and encourage students to adjust and set appropriate steps and goals to reach their full potentials. My philosophy and approach in teaching is to help students to establish a solid foundation first whether it be math skill, language comprehension, or rhythm/sight reading for music, then based on students' abilities and interests to apply and work toward mastery of knowledge, understanding and application toward their learning goals and objectives. I value feedback from both students and parents to ensure a good relational dynamic to promote an active learning process for inquiry and success.
I am flexible to work with students' schedule. Though I have a 24 hours cancellation policy, make up lesson usually can be arranged when notice is given in advance. To ensure the best environment and utilize the resources I have available, I do prefer students to come to my neighborhood location for private lessons or group classes. However, I am willing to travel to another location if the distance is reasonable and not too far.
I look forward hearing from you and helping you to achieve success in your studies.
HobbiesI enjoy cooking, singing/playing piano, song writing, blog reading, eating out with friends and traveling.
I volunteer regularly as a vocalist and pianist at my home church and enjoy singing and playing with both youths and children.
