Teacher Bio: 

本科毕业于北京中医药大学,留校任教四年后,在中药学院学习并取得硕士学位。之后赴美学习生物学,在衣阿华大学取得生物学硕士学位并在该校做有关肿瘤方面的基础研究。2014年全家因工作原因回上海两年,至2016年回美并定居于NY。在回中国的两年间,开始从事对外汉语教学。

多年的中医学习和工作及近年来的汉语教学使得我对于中文教学及传播中国文化有着越来越高的热情和越来越大的兴趣。作为两个孩子的母亲,对于孩子的中文学习一直在不断摸索中。深知海外的华人后代学习中文的不易,我认为在孩子幼年时期要不仅要有学中文用中文的习惯,更要培养对孩子对中文的兴趣及对中国文化的了解。对于低年级的小朋友们,适合海外华人儿童的中文教学方法在保持孩子们中文学习兴趣上有着举足轻重的作用。在课堂教学中,运用游戏,故事,多媒体等多种教学手段使课堂学习轻松有趣而有效。

业余时间里我喜爱摄影,网球,跑步,健身和阅读,更喜欢与我的女儿们在一起享受快乐的时光。

 

After five years studying of traditional Chinese Medicine at Beijing University of Chinese Medicine (BUCM) and getting a bachelor’s degree, I had been teaching Chinese medicine for 4 years, and continued my study in graduate school and got my Master’s degree from BUCM. Later on I came to US and studied biology at the University of Iowa and worked in a cancer research lab. From 2014 – 2016 our family lived in Shanghai due to my husband’s work. I started to teach Chinese as a foreign language.

My experiences in studying and teaching Chinese medicine as well as recent experience in teaching Chinese make me have great passion in teaching Chinese language and Chinese culture, to foreigners as well as to the America born Chinese kids. Being a mother of two (13 and 6), I have been working on how to keep my kids interested in Chinese culture and Chinese language since they were little.  One of the key things for the kids to learn Chinese well is to keep their interests. Therefore in Chinese class using different ways like telling stories, playing games, using multimedia to help the Chinese studying easy and fun would be very important to young kids.

I like photography, tennis, jogging, fitness, and reading. I enjoy spending my time with my daughters.
