I am native speaker of Mandarin Chinese.  I hold a bachelor's degree in English from Tamkang University in Taiwan and a master's degree in Curriculum & Teaching from Michigan State University, with a focus on Second Language Acquisition.  Since my immigration to the U.S. in 2004, I have served as a university-level language instructor teaching Mandarin Chinese & ESL to non-native speakers.  Though I was born and raised in Taiwan, I have had opportunities to travel and work in mainland China, which has benefited me tremendously in teaching various aspects of Mandarin Chinese and culture.  In my spare time, I also works as a Chinese/English Interpreter (independent interpretation services, volunteering at federal prisons and as ESPN's Chinese interpreter for the Little League World Series).
