Hi all, I am Mingming originally from Beijing, China and I received my Bachelor degree in Sociology and Music in the United States and graduated with the most outstanding record of the year 2015. During my college years, I worked for the Asian Studies Department for two years. Being an official Chinese teaching assistant, I was responsible to design and teach fellow students from over 20 countries 7 times per week, and as students' level was different from the first year to senior year, my teaching method was specific to individuals in order to create the best effect of learning. Also, I have dedicated to volunteering as a teacher too. In 2008 and 2015, I spent months in the Earthquake Area and a poor village in China teaching children English and Music. So, I am quite experienced and passionate about teaching and sharing, and all students have loved my lessons a lot. Most importantly, I am a funny person to make the lesson relaxing, not serious!
I first started to teach when I was a high school student, volunteering in the Earthquake Area in China. From 2011-2015, I both worked for my university and as a private tutor simultaneously. After graduated from the States, I took a year gap volunteering in a very poor village in Yunnan, China, teaching children English and Music. In total, the number of my students have been countless. College students took my course to earn 1-credit and they all reflected that they can always learn so much from me as I teach them from both textbooks and life experiences.
