Mastering fundamentals is extremely important when learning a language. This is especially true for Chinese. We'll first practice the basic sounds and tones. Then we'll learn practical travel Chinese--practicing simple conversations. Once you get your footing, we'll expand your vocabulary and understanding of grammar.

About Joy

I am a graduate of UC San Diego (bachelor of arts, sociology) and UCLA (master of public policy). As a child of immigrant parents, I value diversity and love learning languages. I read, write and speak Spanish fluently, and have intermediate command of both Cantonese and Mandarin Chinese in reading, writing, and speech.

Photography has been one of my main areas of focus for over ten years. I am trained in both film and digital formats and specialize in demystifying the DSLR so that you gain a good understanding of manual settings and how to use each to improve your photos.

Caring, compassion, and understanding are essential for learning and I strive to do my best in these areas.

About Bill

I have always been a self-studier in my entire life. Being able to learn with just books and your brain is a crucial skill to have! However, I know not everyone (and sometimes even myself) have the discipline and motivation to keep going during hard times. This is where a tutor would come in handy.

I enjoy tutoring (doing it ever since I was in high school for my classmates) and helping other overcome problems that I have encountered myself because it enhances my own understanding and makes me happy that my self-studying is helping others. Sometimes, my students even bring up alternative ways of thinking that I have never thought of before!

Had played piano when I was young, and missed playing it. Bill is an excellent motivator and helped me enjoy practicing again and playing new pieces!

Private Mandarin Chinese Teacher

Firstly, I speak standard Mandarin Chinese from North Eastern China, which is the same kind of pronunciation found in professional teaching material and stipulated by the People Republic of China. Secondly, I have over ten years experience teaching second language to students of all ages and proficiency levels, which includes preparing students to take the HSK. Thirdly, I earned a bachelors degree and teaching certificate in teaching English, which has given me the pedological and speaking skills to explain Chinese grammar and culture to beginning level Chinese speakers.

About Alina

你好 !My name is 强耀萱, but if you are a beginner you can just call me “Alina” for now. Firstly, I speak standard Mandarin Chinese from North Eastern China, which is the same kind of pronunciation you would find in professional teaching material at universities and is also stipulated by the Peoples Republic of China. Secondly, I have over ten years experience teaching second language to all ages and proficiency levels. I particularly have experience in teaching school children Chinese. I am also proficient in preparing students to take the Chinese Proficiency Test (HSK). Thirdly, my bachelors degree is in English Education, so I understand important pedological methods and can explain grammar and cultural concepts to beginner level students.

Alina is wonderful. There's just no substitute for a professional teacher like her if you really want to learn a language. I think this is especially true for a language that is as difficult and foreign (to an English speaker at least) as Mandarin. Thanks to Alina, I finally have gotten the hang of the tones and am learning the characters for real. I LOVE the textbook she teaches out of--it's part of a very thorough series of Chinese language-learning textbooks, the sort you would use in an actual class at a university or in an immersion program. In addition, she prepares pdfs which she sends me to supplement the textbook vocabulary/grammar. We're on chapter 6 now and I'm feeling very excited and motivated because after years of wanting to learn Mandarin and dabbling casually with various materials, I feel that I've finally begun to make progress.

Alina, in addition to being a great teacher, is also a very warm and considerate person. She won't make you feel pressured or uncomfortable if you aren't perfectly prepared for your lesson. She's also been very conscientious about sending materials, being on time for our lessons, and making sure that I understood all of the lesson material, even if it means going a little over the designated hour. I highly recommend her to anyone who is serious about learning Mandarin.

Zhenni really is the best instructor EVER! Aside from being one of the most caring and sweet humans I have ever encountered, she is a dedicated lesson-planner and instructor who is sure to help you progress in your Mandarin studies. I can say with absolute certainty that, as a non-native speaker, I could not have progressed to an advanced level of Chinese without knowing Zhenni. She is truly skilled at making Chinese language and culture feel cozy and familiar--a real gem!

I was taking Chinese at university level, but my professor was very fast paced and I didn't get much practice speaking. That's why I loved taking lessons with Zhenni! She's very thorough - correcting my grammar, tones or pronunciation whenever I make a mistake so that I don't develop bad habits. She also supplied a lot of additional insight into how modern people speak Chinese, so that I would sound more authentic and not just repeat lines I learned from a text book. Zhenni is also very personable and easy to talk to, which I found really helped me not be so self conscious when she would ask me to have a conversation in Chinese.

Teaching has always been my passion. I have been teaching Mandarin for 10 years at various Language Institutes, and taught at private schools in Michigan for total of 5 years. With corporate client experience, I also have been working as a Mandarin instructor in a language company. There are many adult students with different levels who are currently learning Chinese from me. My success stems from enthusiasm, self-motivation, patient, creativity and the ability to communicate with students from diverse backgrounds. It is my goal to combine my range of experience with my ability to make the learning easy and fun.

I've had a great experience so far. Yiju is patient, enthusiastic, and fun. Her lessons are easy to get into and the time flies by really fast. She's very engaging on cultural topics, illustrates a variety of ways to say something, and is generally very organized and punctual. She has been very accommodating to my requests and helping me learn in a way that works for me. Since I had my own study materials before I started lessons with her, she has worked with me to practice the material I studied already. I would definitely recommend her.

Wonderful instructor. We look forward to continuing lessons later this year. She was very professional and made my 15 year old daughter comfortable with learning Chinese. She tailored the lessons to fit her aptitude. I would highly recommend her. She also met us at the local community center which was very helpful logistically.

Mandarin can be really challenging for most people. By using logic and the similarities with your native language, I can make it way easier for you to understand the grammar and use the language.
As a native Mandarin speaker, you'll have a great environment and full knowledge of the language from me.

About Sonia

I'm enthusiastic about teaching and sharing different culture to my students. Growing up in Asian culture makes me capable of telling the difference between western and eastern life styles. With more than 13 years of teaching experience, I have very solid teaching background and discover the easiest way of learning a new language by logic and constant practice.
I enjoy creating different situations and encouraging students to think and talk. I'm sure you'll have fun and find it interesting to dig deeper more about the language and culture.

I will absolutely recommend her for your kid, I know mine is happy and enjoys learning a new, difficult language!"

Sarah
"I'm really enjoying my lessons with Yuexin. She's very patient and is able to answer all my questions. She's also happy to customize the lesson to suit my
interests; for example, we took some time to go over voice lines in a video game that were in Chinese and then work on the pronunciation and pinyin for them.

The textbook and workbook she had me get have been helpful, and I've been supplementing by practicing on my own using Duolingo. I think the combination has been really effective for learning the language. Yuexin has been great for correcting my pronunciation and teaching me how native speakers would actually speak and write."
