In Zhengzhou, Henan, China I taught 7th grade ESL classes for two years. The students were local and also from other provinces. During those two years I also tutored staff children in grades one to six. On the weekends I worked at a private English school and tutored a 9th grade boy who loved American basketball. We discussed basketball videos and he told me about Chinese history. I moved to Honduras and taught a sixth grade bilingual class, then I moved to southern China and taught Oral English to freshman and sophomore students at Huashang College Guangdong University of Business Studies. I have taught elementary mathematics to grade two students and health education to grade eight and ten students.
