Introduction

Hello, I am Norris from Taiwan. As a postgraduate at Master's Program in Teaching Chinese as a Second Language at National Cheng-chi University in Taipei, I am equipped with the knowledge and skill regarding Chinese language teaching through the courses and practicum experience. Besides academic performance, I have spent extra-curricular time doing part-time TCSL jobs for almost three years. Not only do I provide one-on-one TCSL courses, I was also working at National Taiwan Ocean University as a part-time Chinese lecturer during the summer vacation in 2015. At the same time of the year, I was a supply Chinese teacher at the Chinese Language Center at Tamkang University. During 2016-2017, I taught Chinese at Western Kentucky University in Kentucky in the U.S. as a foreign language assistant for ten months.

The best way to make students efficiently learn Chinese, as I always believe, is to make them feel relaxed and have a blast while they are learning it. My American students once told me that if they need to use a word to describe me, it would definitely be "sassy (in an approving way)." In my class, although you will be asked to nonstop use Chinese to answer my questions, I am sure that you will feel relaxed and have some fun! Most important of all, you will find out that you are actually making progress. Welcome to learn Chinese with me!
