Biography:

你好(Hello)! My name is Yen-Li (Claire) Sun and I am from Taiwan. Just in case you might be curious, although I am from Taiwan, the main language that people speak there is Chinese. 

I received my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology, and took some courses in Graduate School of Science in Counseling Psychology. I have been teaching Mandarin Chinese to students ranging in age from preschoolers to adults for about seven years.

I like music very much, and I believe that singing is a great tool to help students remember Chinese grammar effectively. In addition, from my experience teaching Chinese to young kids and teenagers in church, I believe that creative games help students stay interested and focused. My classes will be lots of FUN!

I hope I will see you and your kids very soon, 再見 (Bye- bye)!
