As a non-native Mandarin speaker, I understand the difficulties a native English speaker may face while learning Mandarin. The characters look difficult and the tones are intimidating, but if we break it down together, I can help you comfortably understand the ins and outs of Mandarin and get us speaking about various topics together in no time!

I am currently a Sophomore at the University of Massachusetts Amherst studying foreign languages, economics, and music. I love finding new ways to express myself, whether it's with Japanese or Chinese, or even with some good old Rock and Roll. I love cracking jokes and making people laugh while the

Online Mandarin Chinese Teacher

I’m a Chinese native speaker from China,the town is called Zhongshan,near HK and Macau. So for sure, Mandarin and Cantonese are my fluent languages.
I have been a teacher for almost 30 years,mainly of history and languages.Now I’m in the US, specialized in teaching Chinese as a foreign language. That’s why I’m here.
Practice makes perfect, means patience training is a cruel key for learners,kids,adults,tourists,businessmen…
Lively activities are always present in my classes:cards, tongue twisters, nursery rhymes,riddles,charades,origami,kiligami,ancient and modern China, history and culture, and so forth.

About Loulou

With long-term teaching experiences, it thus means high qualities on knowledge and teaching abilities, good skills on communication and cooperation with students, parents, coworkers, positive mindset, more physical energy , etc. Most of all, I know well that practice makes perfect, patience trai

"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."
