Hi I’m Vera! Originally from Taiwan, I moved to San Francisco in 2013 to earn my master’s degree in TESOL (Teach English to Speakers of Other Languages) at the University of San Francisco with a focus on fossilization of pronunciation among Chinese English learners. Being a non-native speaker myself, I believe that every English language learner can achieve native-like proficiency. I’m fluent in both English and Chinese, and conversationally fluent in Russian. Outside of classroom, I enjoy outdoor activities such as running, hiking, and hanging out with friends in the city.
