Hello, I am Deborah Shaw. I am from California, USA. For the past five years I have been living and teaching in China. I have tutored students from first year primary to ninth grade middle school. I have taught ESL for three years and the most recent two years I have been guest mathematics teacher in second grade. I have also taught Health classes for eighth and tenth grade girls. I enjoy sharing my knowledge of the English language and learning other languages. I like to play the ukulele with a small group. I care about sustainable living and sustainable resources.

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.
