 Community English Program - New York, NY

Community English Program - New York, NY

I earned my M.A. in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) from Teachers College, Columbia University. I have a B.A. in International Relations and Chinese (Mandarin) from the University of Colorado, Boulder.

Currently I teach undergraduate composition and critical writing at Pace University. Previously, I have taught developmental writing, writing in the disciplines (WID), academic and professional English, general English as a second language, as well as TOEFL and GRE test preparation. 

In addition, I have extensive experience with curriculum and program development at the college level for both English composition and English as a second language. 

My teaching experience has primarily focused on adult learners from diverse backgrounds in the United States, China, and Cambodia.  

As a teacher trainer, I have developed and led workshops on communicative language teaching methods, alternative assessment, educational technology for language learning, and vocabulary learning strategies.

Prior to teaching, I worked in political consulting, corporate recruitment, cross-cultural education exchange, and Chinese-English translation. 

I am fluent in Mandarin Chinese and conversational in Khmer (Cambodian).
