Hello,大家好。我是宝妈,是“宝英语”和“宝中文”的负责人和老师。”宝英语“是给母语非英语的学员教授英语的学习机构。”宝中文“是给母语非中文的学员教授普通话的学习机构。

我出生并成长于中国的北方,现在在美国工作和生活。我已经在北美定居了十六年了。尽管我的本职专业是自动控制及数学统计,但是我却酷爱教学。

四年前我开始在美国本地教授中文;三年前,我又和我的儿子宝宝联手在网上开办了英语教学。我非常享受学员们语言进步之后给我本人带来的成就感。

随着业务的发展和壮大,我已经把工作的重心从亲自教学转到了教师的培训和培养上。我已经成功的培养了三位优秀的美语外教老师和三位优秀的对外汉语教师。

课件的制作和审批也是我的工作重点。我和宝宝合力著有《接地气,美式小口语》和《跟华人母子学中文》两部有声教材。

”宝英语“鼓励学员跟着们团队里的在美国土生土长的外教老师学习。但是同时,我本人也提供双语教学。我双语教学的对象是从未跟外教上过课的学员或者跟外教上课还有些胆怯的学员。我帮助他们树立信心,学习基本的英语上课用语,熟悉我们上课的风格和节奏,从而慢慢的把他们转到全外教教学中去。

我用双语教授各个级别的英语,学员有50%的孩子和50%的大人。我在正式上第一节课之前,会先和学员接触。我认真倾听学员的需求,了解他们的兴趣爱好,特长以及英语水平,从而有针对性的为他们定制课程。

我非常的耐心,也充满了活力。是的是的,耐心和活力并不矛盾。你在跟我学习时,会发现时间过的好快,因为在我的教学里充满了乐趣。很快,你会发现学英语其实并没有那么难了,而且在不知不觉中你已经可以和老外流利的说英语了。

这就是我,宝妈。欢迎大家参与到“宝英语”的互动学习中来。

Hello, my name is Kam. I was born and raised in a small town in the United States. I have spoken American English my whole life as it is my native language. I currently reside in the United States. In my free time I enjoy cooking, watching movies, reading and writing. 

I majored in Health Sciences in college and I earned my certification to Teach English as a Foreign Language (TEFL). My TEFL certification allows me to provide English language instruction for non-native speakers. I love teaching others about my native language and America’s diverse culture. 

Previously, I tutored elementary to high school age students in English as a Foreign language. I worked with my students in classroom and one-on-one settings, supporting and encouraging them throughout their language studies. It is my goal to help speakers of other languages achieve their English language goals. I know that learning a new language can be challenging, but having the right tools and support can make the experience a fun and exciting adventure. 

I am excited to work with "Learn Casual English with American Mom and Son" and help students unlock the opportunities that come with language proficiency. I look forward to meeting and supporting you on your English journey!

Hi everyone, my name is spring. I was born and grow up here in the United States. So I speak standard English very fluently.

 

I am a fully trained and certified teacher by "Learn Casual English with American Mom and Son." I have been working here for about two years now. I have been teaching all levels and all age groups, from kids to adults. Many of my students are in school, have jobs or families.  

 

I follow the lesson materials that we offer here. The students and I practice the lessons together. If there is anything they don't understand, I help them with that and explain it to them. Then the students will say the homework to me, and I will critique them on whatever they did right or wrong. In addition, I also offer free talks with my students. We discuss about anything like how school is going or what our weekend plans are; the fun things or bad things happening in their life or my life lately. Having a discussion with the students will definitely help them learn some new words and phrases. It will also help to improve their speaking fluency. By this way, I have already helped my students become fluent in English.

 

Now, let me tell a little bit about myself. I like to write. I was one of the editors of my school newspaper. I think writing is a nice way to show your creative mind. I like to make art, sing and dance. I've been singing and dancing all my life basically. I was the photographer and event coordinator for my choir. What else? I just like to hang out with my friends and listen to music. 

 

I am a very easygoing teacher. I like to make my lessons fun and I try to make them as exciting as possible.

 

I'm looking forward to teaching all of you and I know it's going to be a lot of fun.

下面是Jenny老师自我介绍的英语脚本,供大家参考。

Hello everyone!

My name is Jenny. I was born and raised in the United States in Florida, and am very fluent in American English.

I worked at my local library for a kid’s program, with the age ranging between three-year old’s and ten-year old’s. I loved doing the job because the kids were fun and would always come to hug me whenever I went into the room. Kids can be very hyper and creative, and I enjoy running around with them and making sure they have fun as they learn. I also help tutor friends and family for their English classes, ranging from elementary up to college level, critiquing their grammar and critical thinking skills.

In high school, I skipped ahead two years because I had great grades. In college, I have excelled in all my English classes with straight A’s, and I have even had my research paper used by professors as an example for other students in the college class. The paper was about two girls whose parents are Chinese immigrants to America, and their dilemma of choosing to accept the new American culture or retain their Chinese heritage. Because I had to research a lot for that paper, I immersed myself in the knowledge I learned and found a growing interest for Chinese culture.

To say a few words about my daily life,in my spare time I enjoy writing creative materials such as poems and short stories. I love to read, listen to music, and spend time with my family and friends. I also adore playing the violin.  I hold free concerts to retirement homes and even perform in parades. I also helped raise money for disasters such as Hurricane Irma and Harvey. I have even been in the newspaper three times thanks to the events I participated in!

I follow the materials offered by, "Learn Casual English with American Mom and Son," and will work to the best of my abilities to make sure you understand what you are studying, as well as reach your goal of speaking fluent English.
