This is how 2 referees rated Peihwen:
As one of the only few Asian students in UBC’s Theatre Acting Programme, I have plenty of experience navigating the exciting world of theatre. I also am an ardent lover of classic Mandarin films, literature, and music—if these are also your passions, let’s centre our classes around them! Last but not least, I have lived in Taiwan for two decades and I will most definitely be happy to tell you all about what life is like in this beautiful tropical country.ful Mandarin that they can use for the rest of their learning lives. :)
As a native speaker in both English and Mandarin, I have four years of teaching experience in both languages. My students range from grade school kids to high school teenagers to backpackers and doctors. As a Taiwanese/Canadian invested in her cultural roots, I mainly teach in traditional Chinese characters—best suited for students who are interested in living and/or working in Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Macau, and for those who look forward to understanding traditional Chinese culture.
Whether students are beginners, intermediate learners, or advanced Mandarin speakers, I can guide them through reading, speaking, listening, and writing in beautiful Mandarin that they can use for the rest of their learning lives. :)
I use both ready-made textbooks and my own teaching materials when teaching. My teaching style is laid-back and I am respectful of all my students’ different processes. I combine my hands-on knowledge of the Mandarin language with strategic implementations of grammar/pronunciation rules—learning a new language is painful! But I try to minimize the pain as much as possible. Also, I’ve spent two years studying literature at NTU (National Taiwan University) before transferring to Vancouver, meaning I am well-read in the field of Chinese literature—both classical and modern.
