Profession: PhD student, college instructor, English tutor

Teaching Experience: I worked as a volunteer teaching assistant in a college-level ESL class and an English pronunciation tutor from 2010 to 2011. I volunteered as a kindergarten English teacher and a group tutor for adult English learners in Taiwan from 2012 through 2014. I worked with middle school aged English learners for a month in 2017. I have also been teaching English writing and a course called "Language in the USA" to undergraduate students at the University of Florida since 2016.

Interests: I love reading books about different cultures and learning about the everyday lives of other people. I also enjoy writing, drawing and painting in my free time. One of my biggest passions is learning languages! I speak English and Spanish from birth and learned Chinese in high school and college. I also began learning Russian, Japanese and Taiwanese in college and am currently working on Turkish. My academic interests include language acquisition, language variation and language education.

Education: I got my B.A. from National Sun Yat Sen University in Foreign Languages and Literature with a focus on English linguistics and Russian (2011-2015). I got my M.A. in Linguistics from the University of Florida (2015-2017) and I am currently getting my Ph.D. in Linguistics from the University of Florida.

Spoken Languages: Spanish (Native), Chinese (Fluent), Russian (Basic), Japanese (Basic), Turkish (Basic), English (Native)
