Private Mandarin Chinese Teacher

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.

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

I am a native Chinese speaker. I can speak five languages. I have years of languages (Chinese & English) teaching experience. I am certified to teach in public schools in China. I believe interaction and immersion are effective approaches to learn a new language. Learning a new language with a native speaker is ten times efficient than learning from language apps. Lessons are customized. Communicative language and Chinese culture would be prioritized while making lesson plans. To learn a new language, it's not simply about the language itself. The more you know about the culture, the better you appreciate the language.

Private Mandarin Chinese Teacher

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.
Alexandria
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.

"We are absolutely thrilled with our experience with Tammy. My two sons meet with her online to review the Mandarin language they take at school. The extra 30 min. a week of conversation and tone work is invaluable. I would rate Tammy a 10/10 as she sends highlights, a review and suggestions of study for the week after each lesson. If a person can have teenage boys look forward to "extra" Chinese weekly, they deserve a medal!"

"Excellent teacher! My son, George (12), felt very comfortable with Guifang. My son had no prior experience with the Mandarin Chinese language, and Guifang was able to introduce him to the language in a manner that did not leave him feeling intimidated about trying something new. Guifang also supplied him with extra materials (video , quizlet, voice recorder) via email.She was easy to reach and very flexible on scheduling lessons. We plan on continuing to work with Guifang and would highly recommend her to other students. Highly impressed!"

"The lesson went well. I did not expect much with the first one since we need to get to know each other and understand what exactly I am looking to learn. She was encouraging and upbeat which made the experience enjoyable. Of course, the real test is what I learned. I spoke just now with a work colleague from China on We Chat and went over what Jasmine had taught me. He noticed a big improvement in my pronunciation today compared to how it was just a few weeks ago on my most recent trip to China."
