Education• I received a M.A. degree in Education (focusing on teaching Chinese as a Second Language) at San Francisco State University. I also received a M.A. degree in Chinese Literature in 2003 and a B.A. degree in Chinese Language Education in 2001.
ExperienceI have successful experiences in teaching Chinese in a variety of settings - not only to Chinese as a Second Language (CSL) students but also to native Chinese speakers; not only to students in middle schools and high schools (Full Time Instructor, Chinese (Mandarin) as a Second Language), but also to students in college. I received excellent teaching evaluations from all the places I have taught.
I currently hold a certificate issued by Pittsburgh Commission on Teacher Credentialing for teaching Chinese language.
I received the First-Class spoken Mandarin Certificate from the National Teachers Association of China.
My courses help you with grammar, speaking, reading and writing, which emphasizes on basic words, sentences, and vivid daily conversation.
HobbiesHere is the sample of recommendation from my previous director in order to help you to know me more.
To Whom It May Concern:
It is my pleasure to provide an outstanding recommendation for Ms. Jia Li. Ms. Li has worked at
XXXX Academy for several years, and during that time she created, from scratch, our popular and award-winning Mandarin program. Jia has a keen mind for instruction and is one of the most innovative thinkers on staff. She has excellent technology skills and employs projects in almost every lesson she does. Moreover, she frequently organizes students
and staff around a particular project or program (such as “Multicultural Day”), and has been a
steadfast leader school-wide. This year, for instance, Jia led the staff in celebrating Chinese New
Year with various student activities and a luncheon.
Instructionally, Jia works well with all students, regardless of ability or constraint. Throughout all
my interactions with Jia I have found her to be conscientious, hard working, and good with
students, staff, and parents alike. In all, Jia has done a superior job at XXXX Academy, and I have
no doubt whatever organization is fortunate enough to land her will benefit tremendously from
her vision and hard work.
Jia brings all the qualities of an outstanding teacher together – smart, responsible, visionary, and
terrific with kids. She can do it all, and I have no hesitation in giving her my highest recommendation.
Ext. 110, if I can provide any additional assistance or information.
