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 grew up in a household where I was mainly raised by my 1st generation Taiwanese-American mom and spent a lot of time around my Taiwanese family. As such, knowing and learning Mandarin Chinese was really important to me; I wanted to be able to communicate with my family in their native tongue. I am happy that so many people today have an interest in Chinese culture and the Mandarin language. I think Mandarin lesson with me will be unique, because I understand how hard it can be to learn a new language and the difficulties associated with it. Even with my family, I can understand when they speak in Mandarin; however, when they speak in their Taiwanese dialect, I cannot completely understand and my learning of the language has hit a lot of hurdles. So, I am hoping that I can do my best to help any beginners start off their Chinese journey, or intermediate levels students improve upon their current skills.

About Alexander

I started to, formally, tutor when I was in high school; I was recommended by my anatomy teacher at the time to tutor another student who needed help. In terms of informal tutoring, when I was growing up I would help my friend's younger siblings in subjects such as math or science. In college, I wo

Monique was so kind and made me feel so comfortable. I am excited to keep learning. I could not have found a better teacher

My husband and I had a great experience taking beginning Chinese lessons with Monique. We didn't know a lick of Chinese, and now we feel pretty comfortable with basic communication. We're moving to Beijing next month, so Monique was great at tailoring our lessons to our specific needs (for instance, restaurant, airport, and "getting around" vocab). She's a great, patient teacher and is very flexible with scheduling.

Learning Chinese characters are key to improve practical Chinese. Why? You know, Chinese is so different from any other language in the world. For instance, its pronunciations (Pin Yin) are so diverse that it always makes learns headache in conversation or improving Chinese only by memorizing Pin Yin. However, all kinds of Chinese can use and understand same Chinese characters in live communication. thus, based on my teaching experience, I will guide you to really improve Chinese by focusing on Chinese characters while enjoying Chinese traditional culture and practicing a little bit skills of Chinese calligraphy. Trust you and me.

"I had my first lesson today in Mandarin as a novice. Lulu is obviously an excellent tutor. She is organized, knowledgeable about the physical processes of phonetics, and extremely encouraging. I can not wait to go deeper into the Chinese language with her as my tutor. I strongly recommend taking lessons from her."

"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."
