会说中文吗?I painstakingly studied every day while living in Shanghai, and after three years I was able to pass the HSK4. I love the strange tones, the inflections, the writing, the reading, all of it. I have plenty of materials to help students study each character and put together the strange grammar.

I spent one year living and studying Mandarin - Chinese in Beijing, China. I understand firsthand the difficulties that native English speakers face while learning this daunting language.

Through fun activities, important homework assignments, and the use of music, I help students overcome their fears and start speaking Mandarin from day one!

Message me for a sample lesson plan or to discuss group rates.

Zai Jian!

Marcos es un maestro bueno!

I took beginning Spanish from Mark. He directed me to a book on Spanish Verbs which I purchased and he was helpful in guiding me on how to study with it. I also had some Spanish correspondence which he translated for me. He has a pleasant personality and willingly answers questions. I highly recommend him.

Rae tutors our daughter. They work on vocabulary and simple reading. She makes the lesson informative and fun for our daughter. She is really patient and has been flexible with the schedule. We highly recommend her as a tutor for Chinese!
Robert
One of the marks of a good tutor is their skills in the language of the student. This helps them explain how to speak in the language the student is learning. Rae's pacing is great, her pronunciation is easy to understand (Beijing style Mandarin), and she writes it out in pinyin as she is speaking which helps learners who need to both hear and read pinyin to retain the information.
Adela and Leo M.
She is so patient with the kids! They really love her so much and are very engaged. I am impressed.

Online Mandarin Teacher

I have more than nine years of language teaching experience. I have learned five languages over the years in China and overseas. I started tutoring Chinese students (age 8-16) English and Chinese when I was 19 and I founded my first summer camp in China when I was 20. Students who had registered for my summer camp increased from 25 in 2010 to 86 in 2016. I've gained very valuable skills and perspectives in teaching, not just as a teacher, but also as a student--students are my teachers too--I've learned there are always places that I can improve and better help them learn languages. Students' "needs" and "wants" are prioritized. It helps students achieve their goals while combined with students' "lacks" in lesson planning. Students should get involved in the lesson planning process.

About Guifang

I teach K-8 grades students Chinese speaking, listening, reading, writing and translation through presentations, visual arts, songs and other various types of activities.
