My name is Lyn, and I am a teacher with TCSOL certification with 10 years of experience. I have taught more than 7,000 hours online and face to face lessons to adults and children.
I believe that teaching is the most wonderful and important job in the world. I love traveling and getting to know new places and cultures. As a result, teaching foreigners became a way to confront the complexity of this reality. By teaching Chinese to a group of students from diverse backgrounds, I learnt so much in return. Through my lessons with all my students, I have enriched my knowledge of world cultures and traditions, can distinguish between different dialects and regional accents of other countries and understand the differences between other languages and Chinese. Also it gives me motivation to improve my teaching skills and to be better and better at the work I love to do. I have been working with students of different levels from over 20countries such as England, the US, Chile, Brazil, Germany, Russia, Iran, Portugal、the Philippines and ect. I will often use my imagination and creativity to adapt the format of the lesson to help students where they most need it. I also encourage them to inform me of any part of Chinese which they would like to improve or have interest in. My goal is just not to only teach the language but to also teach students about local cultures by acting as a tourist guide and take them around my hometown by introducing historic stories and sharing local foods. Teaching a language is never just a matter of grammar and exercises but it is first of all, to introduce a worldview different from that of the student. I feel that teaching and learning Chinese strengthens the love for the culture of my country, of which I am very proud, and that is what I always hope to be able to transmit. Many of my students want to learn Chinese because of this love for China. Each person has dreams and ambitions, and the teacher just has to give them a little hand to help them to achieve them. This is the reason why I love teaching my language .
