Hello! My name is Stephanie Chung. I am from Taipei, Taiwan. I have been teaching Mandarin Chinese for more than six years in United States.
Our lessons are going to centered around your goals and your need. My job is to enable you to do most of the talking comfortably and confidently -- we are going explore proper pronunciation, vocabulary, grammar, and the culturally appropriate ways of speaking, to make your messages more natural and clear to native speakers.
Depending on your needs and learning styles, we might work on structured courses based on trusted materials, talk about different topics and learn through various articles and video clips. We can play games, work on role-playing exercises, make discussions, do interviews, and engage in many kinds of activities to help you learn better.
What are your goals? What do you want to improve? Let me know more about you and your study to help me understand your need. Can't wait to see you in class!
Comments from my students at Stetson University in my course evaluation:
"Ms. Chung is one of the best teachers I've ever had at Stetson. She really knows how to teach a foreign language. This is probably because she also had to learn English at some point."
"She was incredibly organized every day for class and presented the material in a way that was both challenging yet able to follow."
Comments from private students:
"Stephanie is a phenomenal teacher. She is always extremely well-prepared, attentive to the student’s needs, and overall has a wonderful attitude of encouragement. I love studying Chinese with her. She knows English extremely well, so is able to fluidly address nuances in the meaning of Chinese words and phrases. She is very organized and prepares excellent slides for each lesson. She is the best!"
