Private Mandarin Chinese Teacher

I have been teaching Mandarin Chinese since 2014 with a unique method called TPR, i.e. Total Physical Response.

In the class, you will learn to understand and speak the language through your senses, like a child learning the mother tongue.

This is the most natural way for us to learn any language, through seeing, touching, smelling, listening, even tasting!

There are many games and fun activities in my lessons that would engage you to speak and eventually enable you to communicate with native speakers at ease!

I encourage my students (age 5-80) to speak shamelessly and laugh with me.

About Shunyu

I like to infuse games, activities and music in my classroom. I hope that you feel relaxed and confident at the end of the lesson and won’t be afraid to speak the new language with native speakers. As a musician, photographer and a mother, I will try to figure out what’s the best way for YOU

Shunyu is wonderful, energetic teacher that really cares about her students. She is very attentive, positive, innovative and great in communication.

Learning any language virtually is a challenge, Shunyu makes it work and makes it fun. Our son really enjoys the classes and asks for more,
Both of our sons loved their first class. Shunyu is fun and enthusiastic. They feel as if they’ve known her for a long time. They’re looking forward to their next class!
Janae C.
At first, I was nervous since I've never taken online one-on-one lessons. Shunyu is SUPER friendly, easy going, and immediately put me right at ease!

She knows how to tailor the lessons exactly to my needs and is patient when guiding me through forming my sentences by giving me words that fit exactly what I am trying to say.

A++; I throughly recommend! :)

Private Mandarin Chinese Teacher

As a fully qualified Chinese teacher I have been teaching Mandarin for 17 years in both China and the United States. I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of Mandarin skills.

For adult learners, speaking Chinese does not seem easy, but I can help you understand and master the tones of the Chinese phonetic alphabet in a short time. Within the first few lessons, you'll start speaking simple sentences and, as time goes by, you'll be able to use Mandarin like a pro!

For young learners, we can start by recognizing the Chinese characters, or singing Chinese children's songs.

If you are an advanced Chinese learner, we can practice reading some Chinese articles and discuss the topics. I also specialize in Chinese writing so, if you need to improve your writing skills, I can help you.

I love working with students of all levels and look forward to seeing you soon.

Super great teacher! She helps to make a lesson plan focused on what you need or want, for instance, helping me with conversational Chinese and reviewing characters. Instead of PowerPoint slideshows, she has me prepare little projects like talking about what I did last summer, or talking about my job. It really helps me get used to topics in Chinese that I would regularly speak about. Super friendly and super fun!
Greg Borossay
Teacher Sophie is great. She has been a tutor for me (50+) English speaker learning Mandarin starting with absolutely no knowledge and my daughter (15) who started learning immersion Mandarin at age 4 and is already quite fluent.

From my standpoint Teacher Sophie has been a very diligent and patient tutor willing to spend a great deal of time with a student who needs regular repetition and practice. Given that my business travel requires regular visits to China, Teacher Sophie has focused on practical day to day Mandarin that has proven very helpful as I navigate Maritime business dealings throughout China.

For my daughter, Teacher Sophie has geared up her tutoring to include more intensive vocabulary and a refresher program. Given that my daughter is in a high school now that does not offer Mandarin, this type of refresher course is very valuable.

I strongly recommend Teacher Sophie as a Mandarin tutor at any level of instruction.

Come learn mandarin with me! My lessons will begin with teaching the basics and building a strong foundation and from there, we will grow your vocabulary piggy bank. I will be using sources from Chinese pop culture like music and dramas as well as using Chinese social media to learn Chinese slang. We will look at history, culture, and more to help inspire and motivate. Even though I have spoken mandarin all my life, I know for a fact that Chinese isn't easy and, with my help, I can help you overcome the obstacles of Chinese. Together we will approach learning mandarin in a fun and new way.

"Guifang has been such a great teacher (老师) ever since I started with her a few weeks ago. She takes her time and is very patient, what I love the most though is that there is no rush in trying to fit a schedule with her and she adapts the lessons to the students liking or skill set.

Learning a new language takes time, especially with Chinese where there is so much cultural backgrounds and history of language and I feel that Guifang understands this. She really makes the learning experience stress free as well as enjoyable."
