Vietnamese Language Tutor, September 2017 – Present
Throughout the year I spend Sunday’s volunteering to assist teach Vietnamese through my church’s language school. I am responsible for a class of approximately 12 students at our advanced level. Weekly, I plan, organize, and revise lessons and collaborate with other instructors for feedback and new ideas. Aside from the Vietnamese language, I also incorporate key cultural experiences and values such as the recreation of holidays like the Lunar New Year to share with my students the beauty of Vietnam.
