Real life and FIRST LANGUAGE based solutions to pronunciation and grammar. I'm multilingual and understand my student's idiosyncratic errors. I have a focus on IDIOMS and helping students understand cultural differences behind languages. I teach with movies and own materials.
I started teaching English in the university in 2000. I've taught ESL/EFL at Minnesota State University, two universities in China, and currently at a college in Toronto. I have a master's degree in Teaching English as a Second Language (TESL).
My availability is quite flexible. You can always reach out to me for an online meeting for free to help you with your additional needs or if you'd simply like to talk to me to practice your speaking. I'm a very conversable person and I really love conversations. That's why I love my job teaching and interviewing students as an instructor and placement test assessor. My only wish would be that you're really interested in -- and therefore driven by the desire of -- learning the language rather than "going through the motions".

I speak American English and standard Mandarin (zero accent in both) and I actually teach both. I've also studied Spanish, Japanese, Korean and Bahasa Indonesia, and all of my accent reduction solutions are first language specific. My IELTS score was 8.5 (9 for Speaking). I use Visual C# and VBA to develop applications for teaching purposes and writing templates.
