One on one lesson from a native Chinese speaker. I moved to the U.S. when I was 16 and have lived here for over 8 years now. I will help you with language comprehension, listening, and speaking like a native speaker.
As a music therapist, I specialize in teaching music to kids with special needs. I will add the musical elements into the our Mandarin lessons and help you learn faster. Let's have fun with music and Mandarin!

I am a native Japanese & Chinese speaker and a resident in the United States. I am trilingual in Japanese, Chinese and English for written and verbal, so I could teach all three of the languages! I have been in the United States for 8 years with fluent English level, so communication will not be a problem with me:) I graduated from Pepperdine University as an International Business Major, and I have a year of tutoring experience at the non-profit organization. I am an outgoing and friendly person, so I will make my class unique with a friendly atmosphere! Please send me a message with your language level if you are interested in my lesson!

I am a native speaker who comes from the north of China. I got my Mandarin Certificate level: Putonghua Class A back in China. I was a teacher for 3 years, my students' ages range from 3 - 18. Also, I've been having lessons with adults through skype for a long time. I believe I have my own methodologies to help people who want to learn Mandarin get improved. And you will enjoy using Mandarin.

About Momo

I've been teaching for years. I am very good at adapting to students' learning styles. I know students have different personalities and different learning styles. Therefore, knowing how to make a student get a first insight of interest in learning is very important. Let's explore how the amazing Ma

My lessons are shaped by my education backgrounds and my teaching experiences. The acronym "CAVE" is a good summary of my lessons:

Communication. Communication is the ultimate goal of language. My classes are rooted in a communicative approach, in which you are the center of this learning process. Topics and activities are designed with real communicative goals. In my Chinese classes, you will mostly hear me speaking Chinese unless the use of English is necessary.

Authenticity. One of the first few English phrases I learned from a textbook is: "How are you? I am fine! Thank you! And you?" However, when I moved to the U.S. I realized that no one really talks like that! Here is another anecdote I would like to share. In the first month of moving to the States, I went to Zaxby's with friends. I was super surprised and excited when I saw "chicken fingers" on the menu. I thought it meant "chicken feet" and that people in the States eat them as well. To my disappointment, my order ...

"Miss HaiBo was extremely patient and understanding. We got to know a little about each other to establish rapport then she evaluated my current knowledge of Mandarin (very little) and then started working with me on a plan to move forward. We covered key areas including tones, the alphabet, and numbers - all in the first lesson!

Miss HaiBo followed up or lesson immediately with additional resources she prepared and suggested homework. It was truly a pleasure to meet and work with Miss HaiBo. I am looking forward to next week's lesson already."

"HaiBo is very patient! I have been studying Chinese on my own for quite a while, but definitely need help with tones. She goes over and over them with me until she feels I've done them right! She is kind enough to put reviews of words, sentences, phrases in the form of flashcards on an app so I can review them over the course of the week. We have needed to reschedule several times and she has been flexible enough to do that for me, too! I have reviewed stuff I thought I knew and have learned new vocab, but most importantly, we have USED that vocab in sentences and I feel like I'm actually improving my spoken Chinese! In addition, I have been working on learning characters with HaiBo and I am surprised how many I know!"
