TESOL(Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages)Program
ExperienceI'm a native speaker of Chinese who has rich experiences in teaching Chinese and English. I have been teaching both languages since 2010 in China and the United States. I earned the Standard Mandarin Certificate in 2006, and I received the Teaching Chinese as a Heritage/Foreign Language Certificate from the University of California, Berkeley Extension in 2014.
I finished my masters degree in 2012 at Penn, where I studied language teaching, covering areas such as "Educational Linguistics", "Language for Specific Purposes", "Language Assessment" etc.
I tutored students from diverse backgrounds for 2 years in Philadelphia. Many of my students continue to maintain a long-term working relationship with me. Currently I am a Chinese teacher in a middle school in Berkeley, California. I have been working with the students around bay area since 2012. I feel that teaching is an evolving and fascinating lifelong undertaking to which I desire to fully commit to. Hence, I would like to use my spare time to help more people learn Chinese.
I'm highly responsible for my students and my teaching style incorporates a strong student-centred approach. Furthermore, I am driven by a desire to introduce China and its culture to whoever is interested.
Just like my English name Summer, I am always enthusiastic, passionate and energetic when I work as a teacher.
