I am bilingual being able to read traditional Chinese and have been back and forth from Taiwan and the USA for a few years. I like to teach other cultures and giving meaning behind the letters of the Chinese characters and picture them to help students recognizing the words easier. When I was young I had trouble learning English because I had to teach myself in school, so I want to make it easier for those people who are struggling the same thing to learn Chinese that is traditional. I kept saying traditional and not simplified because it does look a lot cooler than simplified! Definitely not being biased!

My name is Leila Q. We are going to work together to have fun lessons. I came from Shanghai, China. I graduated from a prestigious University in the USA. I have successfully helped students achieve their learning goals in speaking and writing within a half year, such as pronunciation close to a native, speaking basic Chinese, Improving their school performance, etc. I knew how to help them since I usually have a good relationship with them and motivate their studies.

I love teaching and work with different age groups of students who can be coupled years old to retirees. I started to teach Mandarin Chinese more than ten years ago. I will be so glad to meet you. Please come to try out my lesson!

I was born and raised in China for 15 years before coming to the U.S. as an international student. With Mandarin as my native language, I am also fluent in speaking English. My advantage in teaching is that not only can I speak both languages, but I can also think in both ways. Thus, I can serve better to understand your needs and difficulties faced during learning.

About YIDAN

I am currently studying music performance and music education majors at UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music. I have been teaching since six years ago. I have also participated in various music-related activities such as tutoring, participating in clubs, volunteering in local churches, etc. I'm willing

"Zhao Yang Lin is perfect. My granddaughters Juliet, four, and Cosette, two, will love her. Give me a month and they will be on the road.

I am reluctant to praise Ms. Lin too highly for fear others will gobble up her time before I learn to read Renmin Ribao. But what the hell. I have an obligation to society.

Fortunately, I have a chunk of money I can devote to spending on her time.

In two or three weeks, the President will be sending me $1,200. Let us devote all of it for my lessons and that of my family.

Please let me know whether you are willing to accept this money as an IOU that I can spend freely now.

Meanwhile, there is this:

I had my first Mandarin lesson today. This is a chart showing the different meanings of the same word. Initially, the notion of tones intimidated me. Depending on tone, if you do not use the correct one, you can call my mother a horse and a horse my mother."
