ExperienceI have two years experience working as a Chinese language instructor at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville. At the institution, I taught all intermediate and advanced level courses. Aside from traditional in-class learning, I coordinated a weekly Chinese Corner session, which includes both language and culture. I also have three years experience as a Chinese teacher in a high school. In addition, I have extensive experience teaching students of all ages. I’ve taught students K – 12 and adult learners in either a classroom or outside of the classroom as a personal tutor. I am passionate about teaching Chinese as a second languaige. The challenge of teaching Chinese to students from many different backgrounds and motivations is a task that I find worthwhile.

HobbiesI love movies, reading, cooking, hiking, and traveling.
I also enjoy learning different cultures and history in the world.

Joy worked with me for several months - she's really patient and excellent at explaining the nuances of Chinese. My conversational/listening skills were greatly improved by her tutelage. Definitely made learning Chinese fun - I couldn't recommend her enough!
Excellent tutor. We followed one of the textbooks. She was super easy to work with, patient and helpful. I really enjoyed working with her and I found I was learning quickly. She's definitely worth giving a try if you're looking to improve your mandarin. I've already recommended her to 2 friends.
