We Teach English for Free!
A free 1 on 1 ESL program that teaches students from overseas. We want to help our community during this pandemic.
I’ve been serving over 5 states and several different countries over the past three years, and I’m honored to be a leader of the Vicina team. Really excited to see what we can do to make positive changes in the Austin community. When I saw parents looking for online classes for their kids during the pandemic, an idea came to me: why not create a free online ESL program to help these families? To bring my idea to reality, I created Jasper English. Currently I am leading this program, a “pay-it-forward” project to tutor Chinese kids for free.

I know Andrew is going to start school soon and the course will come to an end. It is really hard to say goodbye to Jasper English and teenage teachers, the students and teachers took more than three months to get along with each other and build a deep relationship. First of all, I would like to thank Jason for organizing this very meaningful activity during this epidemic. Chinese students in China and in the US helped each other, which not only enabled teenage teachers to experience a sense of responsibility but also enabled students in China to experience the different teaching methods of their peers, which benefited a lot for them. Andrew’s serious and strict teaching attitude and humorous teaching style are deeply loved by my daughter. I remember she rejected English before, but she is now very interested in it. The help from teacher Andrew is inseparable! When the epidemic situation delayed the school teaching, my daughter got 102.5 points in the final exam of this year: the second best result in the class! Here I take the place of my daughter to express my deep thank Jasper English! I sincerely hope that Jason will continue this activity in the future! Thanks again to Jasper english for their efforts and devotion in this activity!
Jason’s English course that held during the summer was very successful because it is very hard to have such a rare idea at the beginning. At the same time, he is a great leader that arranges everything in order. Almost can’t notice that this is the first time that this organization is organized activities. I believe Both teachers and students, every one of them will benefit a lot from it,. Tina’s teacher is Kevin. He takes every course very seriously. He not only teaches text, grammar, and vocabulary but also teaches Tina from different dimensions about American history, humanities and science. In every course, Tina finds it very interesting. Among all her summer courses, she looks forward to this class the most. When she knew that the course would come to an end at the end of the summer, she was a little bit disappointed. She hoped that this course could continue. As a parent, I also hope it to continue, because I think these young people in this group have a more interesting way to communicate with the other young students in China. The teenagers of PREP can be completely trusted, for example their ways to see the world. Therefore, Tina has gained not only the improvement in English but also the power of an example to her like Jason and Kevin.
It is a great honor to participate in this online English tutoring course. This activity is very meaningful. During the covid-19 pandemic, these lovely high school students actively used their power to help and guide the children. In this activity, although Regina is a young high school student, during the tutoring process, she demonstrated her good English literacy, treated the academic problems encountered in the teaching process rigorously. She was friendly in the interaction with the children. I wish this event will be a successful conclusion, and I also hope that the teachers can find the ideal school to better display their wonderful self on the world stage.
I had a great time with them. they’re kind and helpful. I really want to say thank you to them at the very end of the lesson.
The year 2020 has been a year of horror and chaos for the world but we have met some warm-hearted brothers. They are Chinese teenagers studying thousands of miles away from home in the United States. Because of the epidemic, they could not go back home, but they overcame their fear of the epidemic and desire to see their parents. To contribute to the Chinese community by doing public welfare, they spontaneously taught English to Chinese domestic students online. Thank you all for letting us deeply feel the love from across the ocean! I wish you guys a bright future in the United States.
