Are experiences in teaching TOEFL important?
Definitely. A person can score a perfect score in TOEFL while that person can be a horrible teacher. A person can be an excellent teacher even if he didn't score well in the test. It takes time and experiences for a person to study deeply into the test, to discover the techniques in answering questions to better help students.
Subject: SAT II Mathematics Level 2
Are all Asians good at math?
Not all of them but most of them are. And I am one of those that are good at math.
Does speaking mandarin fluently mean being able to be a good teacher in teaching the language?
Certainly not. It seems easy for a mandarin-speaking person to teacher others the language. However, that person has to be fluent in both mandarin and english. Furthermore, when it gets to grammar in a language, certain knowledge and skills are required to explain explicitly.
