About Julia Wang
I was born and raised in Shanghai, China. I graduated from Shanghai Jiaotong University with a Bachelor's degree in English. I speak fluent English and currently obtained an English speaking certificate for American education agency in California. Also, I have Mandarin Skill Level Grade 2(A) teaching certification. I would like to tutor Chinese one-on-one.
I taught American Chinese in a Top Mandarin Language Center in Shanghai,China. My students were at various ages from middle school to university. Currently I've been teaching conversational and written Chinese in Coral Springs School K-12. Also, I have been tutoring American kids ranging age from 2 to 16 for many years until now. Basically, the lesson has 4 parts: A fun introduction to basic everyday words. Learn how to speak in daily meeting. Learn about alphabet and tones by playing games and showing pictures. The step-by-step guide to writing all the words featured. I have always enjoyed teaching more than anything I have done and view teaching as one of the highest of professions.
Being Chinese, I would like to share all Chinese customs and traditions with you, or anything you would like to know about Chinese. As an individual, I indeed have the passionate personality. Also, as far as my teaching style is concerned, I am very patient and motivated when it comes to teaching others the Chinese language. I believe learning Chinese is fun. Looking forward to meeting you!
Julia's Thoughts on Chinese Teaching
I have taught Chinese in all its facets including Chinese as a second language and Chinese to speakers of other languages with great success. I have had years of experience teaching Chinese to children who have never spoken a word of Chinese before (and after a few months they are able to speak some words and simple sentences in Chinese comfortably and happily). In addition, I have had many years of experience teaching Chinese to adults who have never spoken Chinese. Yes, it is a little harder for adults to learn a new language--it's not quite so easy to twist the tongue and mouth in new ways to make new sounds, but that's okay. Ultimately, even if adults retain a lot of their accent, they learn just as well as children. And it is wonderful to watch a student who has never spoken the language before to add words to his or her vocabulary on a daily basis. Chinese is my first language and I find joy and satisfaction in helping others to understand, speak, read and write this incredible language. My students say that they enjoy working with me because I make learning fun, understandable and reasonably easy. Because they enjoy their lessons, they give their best efforts and learn quickly.
