Hampson Education is a Chinese tutoring company with its own offices and classrooms designed for one-on-one classes. At the Chengdu, Sichuan Province branch I worked with over 50 students, ages 5 to 50, on everything from English reading and pronunciation to the history of Hollywood.
United States Peace Corps
After an intense 3 months of TEFL and Mandarin training at Sichuan Normal University in Chengdu, the Peace Corps assigned me to "Sichuan University of Arts and Science" in a mountain town called Dazhou, also in Sichuan. There I worked with over 600 college students training to become English teachers and I also organized cultural and sports activities for the school. Subjects taught: Oral English, Listening, Writing and American Culture.
Bao'An Senior High School (via CTLC)
This was my first teaching job, in a high school in Shenzhen, Guangdong Province, China. I was responsible for Oral English Classes for the entire freshman class, which comprises nearly 800 students. Other work included organizing the "English Corner" and other events.
