EducationI graduated from Texas A&M University with a BA in Anthropology. Class of 2007. After graduation, I spent 4 semesters in China studying Mandarin Chinese full-time. 我会说汉语！
ExperienceI have spent almost two years of my life doing nothing but learn a foreign language. I loved it! I'm excited to take the skills I use to master a new language and share them with you. I'll help you gain natural, fluent, and practical spoken English, enabling you to feel more at home in this new culture.
I can speak Chinese, and welcome Chinese/Taiwanese nationals who desire to gain greater "smoothness" and "naturalness" in English and reduce their accent. Also, for students wanting to learn Chinese, I can help you get started, coach you through how to learn it well, and teach you practical, beginners Chinese.
I look forward to meeting you!
HobbiesI am married, with three young children.

Ed is a great tutor! He has an innovative way of teaching -- storytelling based on comic books. And it worked. My English improved a lot from his three month of tutoring. Also, he is a good friend. He took me to Mexican Restaurant, introduced me to American food, and even taught me how to change oil in my car. If you are looking for a great tutor and a good friend, Ed is your best choice. BTW, Ed会中文，所以如果你是个中国学生，你会发现跟他交流真的很轻松。他能理解你的中式英文，并帮你纠正。
I call him tutor Ed. He tutors me twice a week. And I learned a lot. We started to learn English from the base, the pronunciation. The English teach comes with funny cartoon, daily life words, and I felt very motivated and want to learn more. Trust him, he is not only a tutor, he is also a good guy. I would strongly recommend him. He will lead you to the next level of English!
I learn a lot of useful things from my good tutor - Ed. Ed 著重於藉由生活上英文的用法與發音，想必這是所有國際學生的弱項。背了一堆GRE、GMAT單字加上亞洲人奇特的發音，與美國人溝通上，往往吃了很多虧。 而經過兩個月 Ed 用心的教學，不僅自己可以感覺得出來有很大的進步，其他朋友聽到我的發音也嚇了一大跳。這段期間，我和 Ed 溝通上完全沒障礙，或許是他會講中文，他非常了解中國人想要表達的意思。 我想有人會想說價錢不便宜，可是比較一下ELI的價錢，你就會發現 $30 per hour 根本不貴(我以前上過ELI的課，那種教法才是浪費錢)。重點是一方面可以學好英文，另一方面還可以交到一位美國好朋友，何樂而不為呢?? p.s. Ed 的兩個小孩超可愛的~~ Kuan
